World’s Biggest Gathering of Whale Sharks

TO SEE A single whale shark,the world’s largest fish, a solitary behemoth that can grow to school-bus size — is a rare experience.   Seeing hundreds gathered in one place is unprecedented. It’s one of the most incredible gatherings of animals that’s ever been recorded. It’s mind-blowing,” said marine biologist Al Dove of the Georgia Aquarium.   The so-called Afuera gathering, described April 29 in Public Library of Science One, took place in August 2009 off the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula


Pack Your Bags: MALAYSIA- Sipadan, Mabul and Kapali Islands
The diving around the islands of Sipadan, Mabul, and Kapalai off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia on the island of Borneo is some of the best in the world. Large schools of barracuda, jacks, bump head parrot fish, turtles, and sharks are just a few of some of the larger marine life seen on almost every dive!
It’s not surprising that Malaysia is regarded one of the world’s top dive destinations.

Do you continue trying to descend or end your dive before it has even begun? It is incredible to think that almost every diver at some point in their diving career will suffer with ear and equalizing issues.

How to Stay Hydrated While Traveling

Lots of walking, hours spent in the sun, breathing off a scuba tank … traveling can be exhausting. Being 36,000 miles in the sky for seemingly endless stretches of time doesn’t improve dehydration too much either, but there are still ways to stay healthy during long airplane rides. While carrying a water bottle around with you is highly recommended, we understand that it can be heavy and burdensome.
