    Adopt a Ray is Here! I was hoping to post this following up my post about how to ID rays but hey, better late than never. For you potential biologists out there, what better way to support the environment than to donate to a non-profit organisation that studies and conserves it.  We are planning to re-initiate our research efforts later this year, we have a couple of ideas planned, and would greatly appreciate the monetary assistance.  Besides, through your donation, you can adopt an individual Read More…

    HYDROTAC – Stick-on Bifocal Lenses   Seeing as I have been a scuba diver for a number of years now, and I wear bifocal glasses normally, I wanted to try these Hydrotac stick on bifocal lenses. You may, be like me, frustrated after a dive when someone asks some like “did you see the beautiful colours in that nudi-branc”. Since I struggle to focus on objects up close  I often miss out on the finer details, objects and sights on a dive. I often struggle to read, say; my dive computer, Read More…

    Dear Roxy, My name is Madison Stewart, I was a finalist in the ‘how do you dare yourself competition’ but unfortunately I was unable to sign the contract due to prior commitment to a film I was involved in. Now, for the first time, I am so very glad I never got to sign this contract, I will try and keep this email as professional as possible but that will be difficult seeing as I have spent the last week in cold water filming dead tiger sharks. I was of course- filming their drum lines Read More…

    Where to go diving in Egypt ? Every place on the Red Sea has its own nature, some places have a simple bedouin style, suitable for those looking for peace of mind, others have a night life where one can enjoy a nice dinner after a long day diving or relaxing on the beach or even  after dinner partying in one of the famous clubs. Last but not least are the dive sites, reached only by liveaboards.A brief description of what to expect at each spot going from north to south comes in order. Castle Read More…

    What is the mammalian diving reflex and how does it affect my diving experience? “The mammalian diving reflex is a reflex in mammals which optimizes respiration to allow staying underwater for extended periods of time.” The mammalian diving reflex is present in all mammals but is exhibited more strongly in aquatic mammals such as seals, otters and dolphins. Terrestrial mammals still exhibit the trait but to a lesser extent and this includes humans. The diving reflex is triggered by cold water contacting Read More…

      Divers have a special view of the world – when they dive, they connect with the ocean in a way that people who haven’t can’t understand. Maeva Gauthier and Mike Irvine wanted to bring that world to people on land, so they created the Fish Eye Project to create a “window into the ocean” to connect communities and classrooms to the underwater world. I spoke with Maeva and Mike about their World Oceans Day 2013 event at Fisherman’s Wharf in Victoria, BC, and what advice Read More…
