Time to stop and think

Over here in Western Australia, we are reeling from another fatal shark attack. 

This one happened yesterday, early afternoon, on the popular tourist beach of Bunker Bay near Dunsborough.  The young man was bodyboarding at popular surf spot The Boneyards when he was tragically taken.  Whilst the shark wasn't ...

Underwater Festival Road Trip Day 4

Disaster strikes

Exhaustion - after four days of diving and driving - has taken its toll, with Nick picking up his housing by the strobe arm, which wasn't locked, and dropping his housing on to the floor at Sundive in Byron Bay. Luckily, only the plastic dome port clips broke.

So ...

An unexpected and rare treat..

While some people are daunted by a 6am start to diving, it paid off today with a rare and unexpected visit by a Mola Mola. It was a quick 'hi, how you doing? I'm off again' visit but made a great start to the day.

Good morning Nelson Bay.....

We woke up at Jim and Cherie's place, our dive buddies and local guides for this leg of the trip. Nick chose to give the Jucy van's "penthouse" a try and doubled as guard dog for all of our dive gear.

Teaching and learning

A great day of teaching and learning over here in Perth.

Joseph Bicanic walked us through his underwater videography journey and shared hints and tips for video.  Behaviour is one of the things that video captures so well - from a fish snatching it's prey to a squid flashing it ...

Liberty Wreck and Schooling Jacks

An early start at 6.30am, considering this is also supposed to be a holiday. Liberty Wreck before the masses didn't disappoint with schooling jacks and great visibility. It's great to be back in the water. Hoping everyone else is having a great and safe festival so far!
