Marco Vincent Dive Resort  by kt10518

The Marco Vincent Dive Resort really has it all together! The staff is fabulous and make you feel right at home the minute you walk in.  The resort is spot less and comfortable.

The diving is amazing and I was really impressed with their organization and Big Beth (the boat is how all dive boats should be!). Do not hesitate to stay here if you are a diver! If you are not, they will help you with other activities you wish to see/do.

by jarthur99

SIDE is a new operator in the Solomon Islands. This review is of a trip I made in 2015. I liked it so much that I am returning for Xmas 2016! The staff on the boat were all fantastic. They are amenable to feedback, and even changed the meal schedule at our request.

Fitness For Scuba Travel


Divers who maintain a good level of cardio respiratory fitness reduce the risks associated with scuba diving and improve overall diving performance.

Along with the proper gear, divers must also prepare with proper training, including physical fitness. Safety and performance for diving includes preparing for the varied physical effort required above and below the surface, training the body to cope with the stresses of pressure at depth, and maintaining good health to reduce risk associated with diving.


Volivoli Fiji Re-Opens

Volivoli Beach Resort  Fiji ReOpens  November 2016

Fiji’s Volivoli Beach Resort has reopened newer and better after a major re-build following extensive damage sustained during February’s Tropical Cyclone Winston. 

“We’ve taken the opportunity to evaluate where Volivoli sits in the market and to reopen as the premium boutique resort for the Suncoast, while still providing the personal touch that guests expect from Volivoli as a family owned and operated resort. Fiji is where our families heart, lives and business are invested” explains General Manager Nick Darling.


What is Cylinder Inspection?


And why it is IMPORTANT.

Visual inspection is a necessary process in order to determine a cylinder’s suitability for continued service. However, it constitutes more than looking into a cylinder and pronouncing it “good to go”.  Knowing what makes a cylinder “good” and what makes it “bad” is why cylinder inspection training is important. And contrary to popular belief, there are laws concerning cylinder handling and visual inspection as well as eddy current application!

 Visual inspections for SCUBA cylinders are required annually and other cylinders may require inspections at different intervals.
