World Oceans Day is a reminder to stop and think about our life-giving oceans and the importance of caring for them. Every day on the ocean we are mindful of the items, such as plastic and fishing tackle, that harm our ocean and its inhabitants, so we are always…

Great Underwater Moments!

“All good deeds towards nature are rewarded, ” I like to say. It never fails. I pickup some garbage underwater or right an upturned coral, and the next thing I know nature is rewarding me with a really cool underwater moment. As I was slowly drifting along the reef today, I came across some fishing line entangled throughout the reef. The first thought…

If you haven’t heard love is in the air, or should we say in our ocean.  Turtle Love in the Palm Beaches is where it’s at. Loggerhead and Green turtles are most prevalent to be seen, with the occasional Leatherback sighting, during mating and nesting season (March thru September). These Green turtles were seen on the surface doing their little…

Fatal Attraction

Yesterday we pulled this net which was floating just below the surface of the water.  The net appeared to be part of a commercial trawling net.  On our daily trips we find items such as mylar balloons, buckets, gallon jugs, plastic bags, etc. and that’s just on the surface.  Our guides and regular divers make every effort to keep our reefs clean…

Fish Alliances in Palm Beach

Another day of scuba diving in West Palm Beach, Florida and another story unveils. Today’s story is on fish alliances. Fish alliances are important for the purpose of feeding or seeking protection (among other reasons). Many times they happen right under our nose while we are scuba diving. Some of these behaviors make sense, some not so much. The…

Scuba Diving Palm Beach – The Unexpected

Scuba diving, like any venture into the great outdoors, offers the opportunity to experience the unexpected. When you least expect it you can be smiling ear to ear as a whale shark gives birth in front of you or something sneaks up on you and scares the wits out of you. In my case, it was the latter that happened to me on BOTH DIVES today! Look out in the distance and you’ll…
