    Hello from Jeddah

    Hi all,

    I am currently living in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Have about 300 dives under my belt. Very easy and relaxing diving out here. Get very spoilt with the calm, warm waters, simple entry and exit points (not to mention the silvertips, hammerheads, mantas etc!) I stumbled across this site looking for a little info on underwater cameras. I would be more than grateful if anybody could point me in the right direction. I have posted a thread in underwater photography>Strobes and lights.

    Cheers,

    Richard

    Welcome to the board!

    I lived 1.5 year in Jeddah, from 6months to 2 years old... My parents say the coral was great, i wish I could remember!

    For advice about photo, check the pink link in alcina's signature, really helpful:

    You can test the tanks you breathe or - dive on hope.
    Testing is safer...


    Great news for vacation divers who cannot talk themselves into buying a personal CO tank tester!

    >> Rent one for a week or longer here <<

    Yeah it's just the air we breath - at depth!

    Hi Richard

    I passed my open water in Jeddah. Great diving but 8 years in SA just too much. Had to wade for ages to reach the edge but lots of fond memories. Off to Sharm next month for the Advanced. Good diving
