The Porcelain Anemone Crab
Some Porcelain Crabs look good enough to be made into porcelain collectables.  As the name rightly suggests, the porcelain crab is a delicate and fragile crab-like crustacean that sheds its limbs to escape predators.

The Porcelain Crab is not actually a true crab but that doesn’t make them any less interesting.  The Porcelain Crab is able to drop a claw or a leg if they feel threatened – Don’t worry, it will grow back.  Photo by Tom Gorman


Guanaja’s fringing reef is a protected marine reserve—an ideal spot for diving and snorkeling. Top dive sites include pinnacles, vertical walls, lava tunnels and wrecks.   

The easternmost of the Bay Islands, it lies  northeast of Roatan  north of the mainland of Honduras.  Dive sites ring the island, meaning finding a location to dive in the lee of the wind is nearly always possible.   MORE


For the last 15 years, Benjamin Lowy has traveled to some of the most dangerous places on earth, taking pictures of conflicts in Iraq, Libya, and Darfur. This past summer, Lowy went swimming with sharks, turtles, crocodiles, and a few moray eels to document the marine life in Jardines de la Reina, off the coast of Cuba
Getting those photos, though, “is a high learning curve,” he said. “Lights react differently underwater than on land—you’ve got only 15 feet of the light spectrum, and the flash is different, too.  PHOTO TIPS

Trip Review - FUN BAJA / MV VALENTINA , Baja Calif, Mexico

By snorkyMN  
I have to say, nearly everything about my recent trip on the M/V Valentina to the Sea of Cortez was fantastic.

The food was great, the service was great, and they even were pro-active in fixing things in our room that we were just noticing might have been a problem.


In addition to great diving, the Solomon's offer a unique opportunity to witness History & culture.
