The Sharks, the People, and Getting the Perfect Shot

It’s been shot to death!”

4 Reasons why Papua New Guinea Needs to be at the Top of Your Dive Trip List

Imagine a place where adventure is common. Where new species above and below the water line are discovered regularly. A place where rumors abound of villages lost to the modern world and where many cultures fuse into beautiful displays, festivals and dances with kind hospitality towards visiting foreigners.

A Weekend Dive Getaway in Cabo

Photo Essay and Guide to Underwater Photography in Cabo San Lucas

As the bubbles race towards the surface it becomes quiet enough to hear the songs of the whales underwater, enchanting in the deep blue, and making it almost a pity to exhale my next breathe.
