Diving mid-May in Lake Malawi - visibility?

by Jmdelane on April 17, 2016

Hi all,

I will be spending a few weeks in Malawi in May, and was hoping to do a few dives in Lake Malawi. This is at the tail end of the rainy season, so I am a bit worried about visibility. Has anybody done any diving this time of year? Worth it?

Moving on from GoPro

by George Hamilton on November 25, 2015

Looking for suggestions on an underwater camera (besides a GoPro). I have been using GoPros for years, and while I have some good video and decent stills, I am wanting to get a better setup for still photos.

Don't want to go broke doing it, and would appreciate and all suggestions!


GoPro Tips and Tricks article

by Pete Bucknell on November 01, 2015

Nick Woodman, a young American surfer, desperately wanted images of himself surfing, personal and up close, and there seemed to be no camera available to exactly fulfill his requirements.

The Great Giant Sea Bass Count 2015

by Connerj on July 06, 2015

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 ...
