A new study discovers sharks in Greenland can live up to be 400-years-old, making them the longest-living vertebrates on the planet.

” The Greenland shark has all the hallmarks of an animal that survives to extreme old age,” says Jelle Boonekamp of the Netherlands’ University of Groningen, who was not associated with the study. For starters, females can stretch 15 feet, which is longer than a station wagon. Those proportions mean the shark has few predators.

Photo Gallery by Doris Vierkoetter
Most people know Bali for its culture &  party tourism and as a airport hub for many exotic dive destinations in Eastern Indonesia. Very few people know that Bali has fantastic diving to offer in the North East of Bali, especially for critter lovers.

The muck diving can absolutely be compared to the Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi, and most critters can also be found in North East Bali

FISH ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK

Science has shown fish to be capable of collaboration, recognition, astonishing feats of memorization, and craving physical touch.


Fish are usually not considered to be the most intelligent animals. They have long been viewed as simple creatures that spend their lives swimming around a vast shadowy world about which we understand relatively little.

Real Review By A Diver Like You – Cocotinos Lembeh

By jetfin1  A fairly new resort in Lembeh. Very nice lay out with out door pool & open air restaurant. Nice rooms with fridge & AC . Food is good, portions are large with a good variety. Valet diving where the guides and crew take care of all your gear, wash it, hang it to dry and put it back on the boat for next day of diving. Dive guides are great and can find lots of critters and are very patient as they help you get your shot...

PHOTO TIP - GET CLOSER

Underwater photo colors washed out?
Does everything have that hazy blue color?Backscatter?

Quick Remedy . . . get closer to your subject!

Water absorbs light more quickly than in water than in air, both vertically and horizontally. Consequently, whether you are shooting a subject 10 feet down or 10 feet away, you will have less light than at a distance of 10 feet when shooting in the air.
