It's that time of year again! The now annual Great Giant Sea
Bass Count (2015 edition) is almost here and we are gearing up to spot some
For any of those who didn't hear about the Great Giant Sea
Bass Count last year, the project involves using observations and sightings
from recreational divers to help us better understand how many giant sea bass
(aka Black Sea Bass, Giant Black Sea Bass, etc.) call the waters of Southern
California "home". Since the moratorium on fishing giant sea bass was
implemented, these gentle giants appear (unofficial observations suggest) to be
rebounding from their near local extinction in the early 20th century, thus ...

Can anyone recommend a good diving operator based in Tokio. I will be spending a weekend there and would like to squeeze some diving.

We've been willing to do it a long time ago - I still remember us talking with the Suunto team at DEMA in 2013 about this. And today it's finally there thanks to the joint effort we made ! Suunto users who have been enjoying the smooth Moovescount upload through their favorite DM5 agent can now easily pull their dives from Movescount to Diveboard.
This is really the best of both worlds for Suunto customers and at Diveboard we're really proud to be the first to bring you this integration.
To try it out, head over to the Dive Manager and you'll find the "Movescount import" button on the "Bulk upload" tab. You'll also find it on the "Profile" tab on the edit of your dives. ...

I am advanced open water diver with a strong interest in underwater photogrpahy. I'm based in Singapore and am looking for a dive weekend in either Malaysia or Indonesia.
I have over 200 dives and have dived in Ireland, Red Sea, Canaries, Maldives and Komodo. I am used to currents and cold. I am Irish by the way :)
Would anyone have any suggestions please?

I am going to be in Spain with work in November and am looking for suggestions of where to dive and what dive resort to go through. I'll probably have a day or two to work with.

Has anybody been to Dominica, recently? We went years ago, before the Lionfish dessimated the Caribbean. It was absolutely wonderful! Wondering if the Lionfish have taken its toll on that Island. Would love to go back, but if there's little to see, we don't see the point. We have resorted to endure 14-21 hour planerides to go to the Philippines and Indonesia, in order to make diving worth while.

I am planning to buy a new camera, I've decided to get the new Olympus TG-4. Does anyone know when this camera will be available in Europe?

El Boreas no es un barco. Es un pecio. Esto significa que es un barco hundido. Este pecio fue, en vida, un remolcador de altura alemán, de nombre Pellworn, que participó en la Segunda Guerra Mundial con la Marina de su país, resultando con graves daños en su estructura, que nunca quedó reparada del todo.
Al finalizar la guerra el barco pasó a formar parte de la Marina de los Estados Unidos, donde fue rebautizado como USN102 y destinado a sencillas tareas de trasporte. En 1960 volvió a la Marina alemana para desempeñar funciones de localización de torpedos y minas en la escuela de armas submarinas de Wilhemshaven. En 1980 fue vendido para ser desguazado, pero su destino cambió cuando fue...

Diveboard is currently undergoing a research to figure out the emotional range induced by diving.
This sounds like a lot of hassle right ? So let me give you a bit of context.
Since we started Diveboard, we've focused on helping you guys share your experiences by providing you with the most thorough way to log it. We now have about 1 Million dives logged which is simply mindblowing.
When reflecting with Pascal and Thierry, my fellow co-creators of Diveboard, how we could make your sharing even better we realized something: all the data is awesome, but it's missing the personal story and emotions that you experienced during your dive. ...
