With all the dive adventures available around the world, it’s hard to pin down one as the “ultimate dive”.
Each offers something unique and fascinating. However, there is one that stands out above the rest with an unrivaled experience that can only be described as other worldly – the pelagic black water dive.
Ocean conservation is essential but sometimes difficult to understand. Pew joined forces with cartoonist Jim Toomey, the artist behind “Sherman’s Lagoon,” on 10 animated videos that explain the complicated concepts that guide efforts to protect our oceans.

Shark Swims Up To Diver For a Cuddle Every Time She Sees Him.
Diver Rick Anderson is friends with a shark. That’s Right.
Jardines de la Reina is one of the world’s most beautiful natural ecosystems.
A national park that’s something of an open secret in the diving community. At a time when warming oceans have supercharged the destruction of marine ecosystems—the Cuban government has aggressively protected this area, almost three times the size of the Florida Keys and commonly referred to as the Galápagos of the Caribbean. Fewer than 1,500 divers are allowed to visit each year. The result is a Caribbean Sea that’s been spared the ecological violence ravaging the ocean’s more accessible
Looking like offspring of some alien creatures, these bizarre creatures are 100% Earth-bred. They’re actually not all that different from your average garden snail, just a lot more colorful… and often extremely poisonous.
Blue dragons are part of the nudibranch family, a group of soft-body mollusks more commonly known as sea slugs. they are all quite beautiful, with a wide range of colors and specialized appendages, the blue dragon is one of the most visually stunning and fascinating by far. When fully extended, it looks like an alien dragon flying through the water on their colorful tendrils, known as cerata.

It isn’t hard to understand how the dive site known as The Zoo got it’s name. This is one of the region’s best macro dives, with residents that include frogfish, ghost pipefish, mantis shrimp, leaf fish, funky hairy squat lobster, different species of pygmy seahorses and more. And the same picturesque underwater landscape that make for good hunting during the day also provides habitat to a wide range of creatures that remain hidden while the sun is up. As a result, The Zoo is also a favorite night dive.
Robust Ghost Pipefish usually hang vertically in the water, not moving, pretending to be a bit of Sea Grass.
Here we have two males (the two smaller Pipefish) fighting over a female (the lager one with the lager pelvic fins). It was fascinating to watch and I ran out of bottom time before I could see who won.

Airlines will be offering NEW “basic economy” fares — the lowest prices on a particular flight, but with notable restrictions such as: You don’t receive a seat assignment until check-in (and sitting next to your traveling companions is not guaranteed); you’re the last to board; and you’re not allowed to bring on a full-size carry-on bag (which means no use of the overhead bins).
There are loopholes to get around those restrictive carry-on baggage and boarding rules.
Fluorescence is a truly magical effect: It transforms light from one wavelength to another and it will also transform your Night Dive. Some species of coral and other marine animals fluoresce under certain wavelengths of light due tofluorescent photoproteins in their tissues
What Happened to Rob Stewart?
The director of the acclaimed documentary ‘Sharkwater’ disappeared mysteriously after a deep dive off the coast of Key Largo on Tuesday. For 72 hours, crews scoured the ocean.
On Friday, shortly after the search for Stewart was suspended, divers found his body on the bottom of the ocean floor.
Stewart, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, always loved the ocean.
