Sharm El Sheikh first time

by Jim on September 12, 2014

would welcome any thoughts from divers recently from Red Sea diving around Sharm. We'll be staying at the Hyatt and diving with Red Sea World for 5 days next month. I'm hoping a dive skin will be enough and renting BC and reg better than trying to take along. Both wife and i have over 250 dives. Mostly Caribbean.  I've heard the shore dives a good and expect we'll want to do Ras Mohammed.

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

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 is a tool which absolutely anyone, anywhere can use. 

If you see a seahorse in the

wild, simply go to  the

iSeahorse website ...


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.
