Halloween Dive Sites

It's nearly that time of year again, the last hurdle for commercialised companies before we're bombarded with miles of tinsel, advent calendars and Mariah Carey on repeat. As shops burst at the seams with Halloween tack, this year we invite you to forget trick or treaters, terrible costumes and questionably carved pumpkins and slip beneath the surface… grab your cavity-inducing treats and read on for the most devilish dive sites around the world.

Blue Planet II

Who has seen the latest teaser of Blue Planet II? We certainly did, and its given us goosebumps. 20 years after the original series, our favourite naturalist David Attenborough is back and better then ever, taking us deeper than ever before and featuring even more aquatic animals in their natural environment. But why should we limit these spectacles to our screens? It's time to don your huskiest Attenborough voice, dive in and witness the spectacular power of the Blue Planet with our top five destinations for animal encounters.

A Diving Adventure in Socorro: Part II

I recently visited the Revillagigedo Islands with the intention of experiencing some of the magic these islands have to offer. It was the peak of baitball season, the time of year that some of the best pelagic activity is expected for these islands; notorious for year-round shark and manta action. Expectations were high.
