Why You Should Consider Volunteering With a Search and Rescue Team

Editor’s note: This is a guest article from Graham Shea. This is the time of year when people are making goals towards their personal development. Yet the paradoxical thing about seeking to improve one’s self, is that it’s best accomplished by looking outside of it. A couple years ago I stumbled across an ad in the paper which said that my local search and rescue team was recruiting volunteers. SAR teams are called upon to help people who are in potential distress or imminent danger, often goin...

Best outdoor experiences Macedonia

With neighbors like always-popular Greece and even coastal Albania, Macedonia might not be on your radar for countries to visit in Europe. But packed into an area just bigger than the size of Vermont are lush mountains rising into the clouds, a vast network of trails to explore them by, and clear mountain lakes hiding remnants of past civilizations in their depths. This nation, once part of the former Yugoslavia, boasts some of the most underrated terrain for adrenaline junkies and adventurer...

9 top snorkel spots worldwide

Anyone reasonably confident in the water can enjoy the relaxing, sometimes exhilarating, activity of snorkeling.

Whether you have an inner ear problem or another issue, or just haven’t had the time to get certified, snorkeling is an alternative way to explore hidden underwater worlds – without the heavy gear or the scary thought of running out of air. If you’re at a pristine beach, sometimes just pu...

Dive the wreckage of the Titanic

When the Titanic was still on the high seas, you had to have pretty deep pockets to fully experience the vessel. Now, you might need even deeper pockets to visit its shipwreck.

Another travel company called The Bluefish is also planning Titanic dives for 2019.

Debunking Myths – Overcoming Scuba Diving Fears

Travel Experta, Expat Mama, Educator and Entrepreneur - Inspiring Families to New Horizons There’s a completely different world underwater! What we see on the water’s surface is a far cry from what scuba divers get to explore in traverse depths. But unfounded fears and mistakes of scuba diving brought about by myths, hearsay and lack of knowledge get in the way of experiencing the exciting sport.

Diver Getting His Teeth Cleaned By Fish Is Viscerally Upsetting

Hey buddo, I get it. Going to the dentist is no fun and fish need to eat. It’s logical—symbiotic even. And fish aren’t going to chastise you about cavities, or drinking too much coffee, or not flossing . And they won’t try to talk to you about classic cars while inside your mouth (looking at you, Dr. Gershon).Read more...

Defogging your scuba mask or swim goggles

To keep my scuba face mask from fogging up I was taught to spit in it. You then wipe your saliva around and put on the mask. The very first time I was standing on the deck of a boat, waiting to jump 15 feet to the water and needed to spit in my mask, I found that nerves had dried me up! The best solution for defogging a mask I've found is 500 psi Mask Defogger. When a mask is new, make sure to clean the inside surface of the glass with some toothpaste. It'll rub the chemicals the manufactur...

The Sweet Spot Between Snorkel and Scuba

Even if you’ve mastered the “duck dive”, that average snorkel’s major limitation is that you can’t stay deep for very long to experience what’s underwater. Until now! STEPDive is a revolutionary design that allows users to stay many feet under the water as long as they’d like without coming up for air. The system uses a floating buoy in which hoses attached to the snorkel are tethered. Divers using STEPDive can go as deep as the hose allows and stay there to explore! Better yet, multiple users c...

US Navy develops diving helmet with HUD

The future is here! US Navy frogmen will no longer fumble with clumsy underwater dive computers, or GPS. I'm pretty sure AquaLung will acquire the US Navy to get ahold of this technology, and will be marketing it at local dive shops soon. Via the Tech Times: Professional divers could use any help they can get to make their work easier and more streamlined. The Navy acknowledges their need: it has built an underwater head-up display (HUD) prototype that allows divers to check their location...

KY dives – Tenggol 2016

The last time I went diving was October 2013 in Maldives, a full 2.5 years passed since I breathed underwater, until last week, when we revisited Tenggol Island. The very island I got my diving certificate more than ten years ago, and also the island I dived the most. How time flies. Tenggol Coral Beach Resort The east coast highway is now completed, heading to Dungun took us only 4 hours (excluding the detour to Bentong for breakfast), we left KL at 6 in the morning and got there in time for t...

One Breath

“M1″ doesn’t aim to redefine the scuba or reinvent the snorkel. It’s something entirely new and unlike any other underwater breathing apparatus! The design allows users to take one additional breath when diving, extending their time underwater by one minute. That may not seem like a lot, but it’s plenty of time to go places and see things users might not have been able to experience before! Using refillable cartridges, there are also expansions as users stretch their underwater breathing ability...

Triton ‘artificial gill’ creators cancel $800K Indiegogo campaign, re-launch with new video

After conducting a veritable boatload of research, we were 99.9 percent sure the artificial gill technology was nothing more than high-octane snake oil.
