Tips for SCUBA Travel - eBook

by Scuba Steve Colorado on August 20, 2014

Hi Diveboard Buddies,

If you travel with SCUBA gear then you know there can be a LOT to think about  as you plan your trip.

In this short eBook I share things I've found to be helpful when I'm getting ready to go on a dive trip either by air or auto. Click the book cover photo or the link at the bottom of this post.

This is currently available in PDF or ePub format.

This link is not public but not really secret either. If you travel for SCUBA please consider downloading it and if you can fill out the feedback on the bottom of the page after you've gone through it. 

In the coming months I'm going to update it and put it out publicly but I'd love some input from interested divers first. ...

Tucia loves Diveboard - Free coupons to bring colors back to your pictures

by Ksso on August 08, 2014

Underwater photography is challenging. Not only do you need skills and gear to take a nice shot, but even with a perfect shot the end results may be a bit disappointing.

A lot of stuff come in the way of the perfect picture, namely:

Color absorption: This is why everything looks bleu at depth: red first then green are absorbed by water.

Backscatter: When you use a flash, you'll illuminate all the particles in between you and the subject you're shooting at - ending with countless small white dots everywhere in the pictureGood news : those can be fixed, and doing it properly will turn a good photo into something really amazing ! But picture fixing is really a question of skills and time. ...

iSeahorse - Saving seahorses together

by Projectseahorse on July 22, 2014

Seahorses at risk 

Spotting a seahorse on a dive is always is always an exciting experience. They

are just such unique and interesting fish!

Unfortunately because of their unique biological traits they

are also more vulnerable to threats like habitat destruction and overfishing.

Every year, 15 to 20 million seahorses are caught and

traded, dead and alive, all over the world.  In order to better protect

these little guys we need more data on them. This is where iSeahorse comes in!

iSeahorse 

iSeahorse is a tool which absolutely anyone, anywhere can use. 

If you see a seahorse in the

wild, simply go to  the

iSeahorse website http://www.iseahorse.org ...

Seahorse Population Survey with Kenna Eco Diving, Costa Brava, Spain

by Ecodiver on July 03, 2014

Many marine conservation research dives this season have involved Kenna Eco Diving volunteer research divers in our Seahorse Population Survey, which is proving very successful and rewarding as we have discovered a breeding population of both European species, Hippocampus hippocampus and H. guttulatus.

To date we have logged and photographed 17 individuals, including several pairs and 12 pregnant males.

More dive volunteers are needed to help with this research. Please get in touch if you would like to help.

Great Key Largo Diving on the USCG Duane!

by Sdweller on July 01, 2014

The diving here in Key Largo in June has been about as good as anyone can remember lately.  Flat calm seas have been the norm for about 8 days and counting, and the weather forecast for Key Largo predicts more of the same for as far ahead as they forecast. As most of you know, we now are running more consistantly to the deeper wrecks with the addition of the HMS Minnow to our operation.

The USCG Duane and the Spiegel have been amazing this summer.  First, for those of you who are not familiar…the USCG Duane is a 329-foot cutter that was decommissioned on August 1st, 1985.  The ship was intentionally sunk on November 27, 1987 off of Key Largo, Florida Keys, to create an artificial reef....

Diving with the X-15 Monofin Hydrofoil

by Nico Danan on June 19, 2014

I recently took the new Oceanic Omega 3.0 regulator for a few scuba dives in both the Mediterranean sea and Kauai. I really have nothing but good thing to say about this rather small and stylish redesigned and improved regulator. In high currents and challenging workload situation the Omega 3.0 surprised me with a smooth and constant air delivery. Although not a huge fan of side exhaust second stage, the Omega 3.0 won me over taking my stream of bubble away from my face and behind me , opening my field of view while I was cruising the Hawaiian coral reef.

Destinations of Opportunity

by Scuba Steve Colorado on June 12, 2014

There you are... you're traveling for business or visiting your relatives; walking down a boardwalk... and then it hits you... 'I could be diving!'

How often do you take the opportunity to go SCUBA diving when you are traveling for other reasons? Do you avoid packing your gear if you're not going on a 'dive trip' simply because you'd only get one or two dives in anyway?

I know I have. I've been to California and the northeast plenty of times to get some dives in but left my gear at home. Why?

Here are 5 reasons divers lose dive opportunities!

It's too much to carry.

That's not the point of this trip.

The airlines charge too much for checked bags. ...
