Coursera has made a name of itself as a prime source for online courses - mostly in the technical field. But this time is the scuba diver's passion which is being taught by David Johnston from Duke university.The course's outline, name's Megafauna, seems amazing and would be an awesome crash course for anyone willing to get more involved in Diveboard's citizen science projects.
This course is about sea turtles, whales, dolphins, seals, penguins, sharks, giant squid and other large ocean creatures - collectively known as marine megafauna - and what they can tell us about how the ocean works and why it is so important for all life on earth. This course will help you learn about life in the...

Everyone hates it, right? It’s why you see so many people holding their noses before they jump into the water. One of the biggest problem skills I've seen as an instructor is breathing without a mask underwater. Some people handle it fine, but others have extreme, nearly insurmountable difficulty with it. After a couple of difficult sessions with some student divers, I decided to try and learn how to teach the skill better. I needed a better way to impart knowledge instead of just saying, “Just don’t let the water in!” without really knowing how to tell them not to let the water in. I really didn't understand why or how I was keeping the water out myself. I just did it! I always...

Hey, just wanted to share a video of a cage dive I did in May of 2013 out of Port Lincoln, South Australia. I went with the Calypso Star charter and their boat and staff were excellent. If you're ever in the area I highly recommend.

In a previous post I talked about a dive that I probably shouldn't have done. I did learn from that mistake though, and made wiser choices in the future. Adrenaline junkie though I am, I have learned how to evaluate a situation better and take calculated risks. And while I enjoy and thrive on facing my fears, sometimes the fear wins. And sometimes, that’s okay.During the months after initially getting certified diving and moving through an advanced certification along with some specialties, my dive buddy and I were diving quite a bit in Florida. Springs, caverns, the Keys... we were doing it all during our winter in the Sunshine State. ...

Whether you're a scuba diver or not, it's almost inevitable that you've heard talk about saving the coral reefs. Even as a scuba diver, it's possible you've dismissed these notions. It's possible you think the threat is overstated or that the screeches you hear are from chicken littles or 'tree-huggers'. It's also possible that you don't really understand why it matters in the first place. They're just a bunch of coral, right? I mean, as a diver they're pretty to look at, but they couldn't really be that big of a deal,...
