  1. Before you Start Your Advanced Open Water Diver Course

    by , August 22nd, 2014 at 03:36 PM (DivemasterDennis-)
    I am generally a positive person in these blogs and my forum posts. I save my sarcasm for our Scuba Snobs' books. However, I need to vent a little here, because I have had a summer of Advanced Open Water Students that were not so prepared as they should be for this level of certification and diving. I am not just speaking of training, I am talking about equipment and familiarity with it. What I am about to write are not requirements of any agency that I know of. But they are things every Advanced ...
  2. Why I wrote the GoPro Course for PADI

    by , August 22nd, 2014 at 01:36 PM (Peter Bucknell , Video Producer)
    There seemed to be a void. People were buying GoPro cameras and then taking them diving a few times before leaving them in the closet to gather dust.
    People feel discouraged by the quality and often the volume of their GoPro footage. They have to trawl the internet for how2 videos to get their settings right and to buy the right accessories to make this little box of technology sing. It's a potentially time consuming hobby for many, and that's before you even get in the water.

  5. Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Committee - my insiders perspective.

    by , August 5th, 2014 at 03:17 PM (Diving with Elena)
    A couple of years ago, I heard the FKNMS was calling for volunteers to be on their Advisory Committee to assist in the process of adding more SPA areas. At the time, I was super busy and the deadline fly past me, but a couple of friends and a few local collogues were on the SAC. Fast forward to last month, one of those friends let me know there was an opening due to a resignation and recommended that I should apply. So I went to their website, read up, and emailed them all the information they ...
