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.

I am traveling to West Bay, Roatan, Honduras in October. Really liked West Bay divers from reviews and speaking with them. Has anyone dove with West Bay Divers? Or could you recommend another West Bay shop?

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.
