The diving around the islands of Sipadan, Mabul, and Kapalai off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia on the island of Borneo is some of the best in the world. Large schools of barracuda, jacks, bump head parrot fish, turtles, and sharks are just a few of some of the larger marine life seen on almost every dive!
British Columbia is home to some of the most unique diving in the world. Shipwrecks, artificial reefs, ancient sponge bioherms, diverse marine life, canyons, walls, reefs, sea lions… there’s more to explore in British Columbia, Canada, than you may realize.

Galápagos Marine Sanctuary
Great news for sharks! Ecuador has created a new no-fishing zone in the Galapagos Islands. When we protect sharks we protect whole ecosystem!
The government of Ecuador today announced the creation of marine sanctuary and 21 conservation areas in the Galápagos islands, full protecting the largest biomass of sharks on the planet. The area protected encompasses over 47,000 square kilometers — roughly one third of the waters around the archipelago from fishing and other extra active industries.
In December of 2015, National Geographic’s Pristine Seas team of international scientists and filmmakers, in collaboration with the Galápagos National Park and the Darwin Research Station, surveyed and documented the waters around the islands.
On a expedition to Indonesia‘s Cendrawasih Bay, Conservation International’s Mark Erdmann learned how whale sharks often congregate around bagan (lift net) fishing platforms to eat the small silverside baitfish that the fishers are targeting. The sharks have also learned how to “suck” the fish out of holes in the nets!
Uniting Recreational Divers with Expert Scientists.
Citizen science involves everyday people – just like you – who volunteer to help scientists with their research. You don’t need to have a formal science background to participate.
Check out this video to learn about Quino El Guardians collaborative Citizen Science trips that bring together recreational divers and marine biologists, working and learning together in the beautiful Sea of Cortez & Revillagigedo Islands ( Socorro)
In the Gulf of California off the Quino El Guardian
Would you do this? Jump in the path of a 50 ton Sperm Whale in 1000 feet of extremely dark water during sunset in an area known to have Humboldt squid! This is what it looks like. Last week in the Gulf of California. This is what we divers did when changing locations and sighted some dolphin, Pilot Whales, and some Sperm Whales! Grab your mask and fins!!!….lets go swim with them!!
Dive Into Ambon
Everyone who comes to Ambon to dive, not surprisingly, wants to see the Psychedelic Frogfish, Histiophryne psychedelica. And it’s a critter we would love to show everyone too.
BBC just revealed the trailer for “Planet Earth II,” the sequel to the amazing, high-definition documentary series that covered 11 different habitats. And by the looks of it, “Planet Earth II” is shaping up to be even more mind-blowing than the original.
