Known for Big Animal Action, the Sea of Cortez is home to a Wealth of Macro Photography Subjects

The Midriff Islands are nestled in the Gulf of California between the Baja California peninsula and mainland Mexico. The Rocio Del Mar operates the only liveaboard in this part of the Sea of Cortez, originating out of Puerto Peñasco. This little town is a short car ride from Phoenix, Arizona - that’s right - Arizona!

Mysterious Aggregation of Huge Crabs and Unique Photo Opportunities

Summer has passed and thousands of holidaymakers have packed up their chairs and deserted the beach. The weather has turned and only the most dedicated fishermen are left sitting lonely on the end of the pier without so much as a bite on their motionless fishing lines. The beach appears to be empty and there are few signs of life above the water.

Get Your Blood Pumping with these Incredible Shark Dives

10 Epic Shark Dive Destinations

Brent Durand (text), Various (photos)
Get Your Blood Pumping with these Incredible Shark Dives

This past February I was snorkeling in the Galapagos, down around 20 feet drifting along the side of a narrow channel between islands. The abundant marine life moved in all directions and I was enchanted by a couple large triggerfish. Suddenly the perfect quiet was broken by the clap of tails on scales as a school of surgeonfish darted in front of me towards the shallower water. I instinctively looked left to where the fish came from, where a massive black triangle faded into the deep water of the channel.

Exploring Fabled Reefs & Visiting Resorts on Assignment for Bluewater Travel

Cozumel has a reputation as a world-class dive destination and ranks high on many U.S. divers’ wish lists. I love adventure and wide-angle photography, so when the opportunity came to visit a few resorts and shoot underwater photos on behalf of Bluewater Travel, I jumped at the opportunity. The plan was to visit 4 resorts in 7 days and dive as much as possible around a busy work schedule.

The Rediscovery of Cleopatra’s Sunken Palace & Diving it Today

1400 years ago in Egypt there was a terrible earthquake and a huge tsunami that hit the coast of the great city of Alexandria. It sank the island of Antirhodos, taking down queen Cleopatra’s palace and Alexandria’s old lighthouse, once a wonder of the ancient world.

Today we dive where Antirohodos Island once was, taking you on a journey to see and enjoy what’s left of Cleopatra’s sunken palace under the sea of Alexandria.
