THRESHER SHARKS Are One of the Most Distinguishable Sharks

Thresher Sharks are best known for their long and whip-like tail that measures even more than its own body. The thresher shark’s tail is so large that it accounts for 33 percent of the shark’s total body weight. DID YOU KNOW that Thresher Sharks are known for slaying their prey with their huge tails and are also famous for special jumping techniques and behavior called “breaching” where they jump out of the water and into the air.

Pack Your Bag - Cozumel, Mexico
Whether you’re a novice or advanced, first-timer or old-timer, Cozumel has diving that fits your style.  
While diving and snorkeling are the main draws, the pleasant town square is a nice place to spend the afternoon and it’s highly gratifying to explore the less-visited parts of the island on a rented scooter or convertible bug. The coastal road leads to small Maya ruins, a marine park and captivating scenery along the unforgettable windswept shore.

by Gretchen M. Ashton   
The adventurous spirit of divers is most evident in the willingness to travel thousands of miles to explore the oceans of the world.  Closer to home, passionate divers take the sport to quarries, rivers, lakes and caves. Dedicated divers dive in all climates and conditions. One of the best ways to keep the spirit, passion and dedication among divers at this all time high is to keep divers healthy and fit to best enjoy life, travel and diving.
