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. ...

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. ...

New Review of the Sony a7 in the Nauticam USA
NA-A7 housing has been posted in The Resource Center. This new
mirrorless, full-frame camera is setting new precedent in a smaller,
lighter-weight, yet professional level system.

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 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 ...

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.

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....

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.
