Nights at The Zoo

Wakatobi Dive Resort

It isn’t hard to understand how the dive site known as The Zoo got it’s name. Located just minutes from the dock at Wakatobi Resort, this sloping reef following a stair-stepped profile is home to a prolific and varied collection of marine life, all concentrated in a relatively small area. 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.

Living the Scuba Diving Dream in Cuba

Jardines de la Reina is one of the world’s most beautiful natural ecosystems.

By Michale Shane – Bloomberg

We’ve just tied our skiff to the mooring line at Farallón, a dive site 50 miles off the southern coast of Cuba, when Ramón, our wiry boat captain, points behind me. “Shark,” he says, smirking.

It’s my first dive of the trip, and if the shark is there, I can’t see it. The water is too deep, and the captain’s eye is more experienced than mine. I take a final inventory of my gear, flash Ramón the OK sign, and roll backward into the azure Caribbean Sea. Rather than pop to the surface, as most divers do after entering the water, I stay under and spin backwards, trying to catch a glimpse of the monster below. Read more

How to Navigate New Airline Carry-On Rules

0
It’s the first year that United Airlines will be offering “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).

How to Stay Hydrated While Traveling

SOURCE: Dailymeal.com By Nikkitha Bakshani 

Lugging around a bottle of water is not the only way to keep yourself hydrated on the go. 

Lots of walking, hours spent outside in the sun… traveling can be exhausting. Being 36,000 miles in the sky for seemingly endless stretches of time doesn’t improve dehydration too much either, but there are still ways to stay healthy during long airplane rides. While carrying a water bottle around with you is highly recommended, we understand that it can be heavy and burdensome. But don’t worry; there are other methods for beating the heat.

A Gathering of Giants

Story and Photographs by Tony Wu

Witness to a phenomenon few have ever seen before, I slipped beneath the ocean’s surface to find myself submerged alongside hundreds, maybe thousands, of sperm whales — one of the largest and most magnificent cetaceans of the sea — engaged in a dramatic frenzy of physical contact and biosonar communication.
