Welcome to my picture gallery and blog of my diving adventures. I have been to many exotic locations diving in places like New Guinea, Kavieng, Vanuatu, Solomons, Fiji, Tonga, The Maldives, Cocos Island and Komodo (Indonesia). As well as all along Australia's East Coast, Lord Howe Island, The Great Barrier Reef and The Coral Sea.
I like sharing my diving adventures and have a number of picture galleries with video and blogs devoted to diving. Since I have more time to blog now I will be putting up more pictures and video particularly on the GBR and The Coral Sea so stay tuned.
After a winning bid in a Sea Save auction for a 13 day liveaboard trip to Cocos Island, Costa Rica. I became very excited that I will finally get the opportunity to see schooling scalloped hammerhead sharks in the wild. Cocos Island is dive central for divers looking for shark action, pelagics and high adrenaline diving. And one of the few places in the world where scalloped hammerheads can be found in large numbers.
There are many pressures on the Great Barrier Reef today that do impact on its well being. Thanks to UNESCO the Australian and Queensland governments with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority are now producing a strategic assessment of the cumulative impact on future development in or near the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
Sydney has quite a few deep water wrecks at the depth of 45-50 metres. One of those wrecks is the Coolooli a popular wreck with Sydney Divers. And the Valiant one of the few shallower wrecks at 26 metres. The visability on these wrecks are usually 5 to 10 metres and sometimes in winter when the winds are blowing offshore it has been reported as being 30 metres.
