    I especially liked the comment that it's a shame to waste them as they will just grow old and die! I'm not sure how long a king scallop lives if it gets left alone but I am pretty sure that the...

    I have to change somewhere as we depart from Edinburgh.

    I checked on seat guru and it says that the seats are 17" wide with 31" of leg room. We usually fly on Qatar or Emirates and I'm pretty...

    Turkish Airlines - Any experiences?

    Anyone flown with Turkish Airlines?

    They fly direct from Edinburgh and connections aren't too bad. They advertise in the Scottish diver and have extra free luggage for divers but have never...

    Just got mine back from Vista Print. Very happy with them. They are probably a bit garish but I prefer bright and colourful to dull. Their RGB conversion can really flatten the colours of some...

    Hello Caz!

    We never dived Labuan Bajo but we did dive in Komodo National Park where the currents can be mental. The currents in Alor where actually the most crazy we have dived in but there's no...

    I was sick as a dog for the whole week on my first liveaboard. It was an Egyptian Deep South trip with long crossings, big waves and a smelly wet boat. Despite all this I loved the trip, loved the...

    Yep, we had PU rings installed on an otter suit a few years ago when they were quite new to the market by Seaskin and they quite literally fell off after a few dives. They re-fitted them using...

    I love BugDreamer's videos. Sadly didn't get to meet him when we were on Mermaid, he was on his holidays.

    As I said, we did the Banda Sea crossing in April/May 2016 and El Nino was in full...

    Misool had reef sharks, mantas and huge fish biomass. Probably, the best reefs I have ever seen.

    They saw a great white at Nusa Penida last week...:OMG:

    I will qualify my statement, for 9 days in May 2016 it was not a shark hotspot! The first reef we dived was in the middle of a bleaching event, all the hard corals and many of the soft corals were...

    Been to Alor a couple of times, staying at Alor Divers. Wonderful place. Other than very large whales passing by we have't seen anything bigger than a dog tooth tuna. There are hammerheads and...

    Don't be in a hurry or need your suit back for a trip or expect the repair to last more than 20 dives though. I'm sure the personal service when buying new is second to none but his aftercare on my...

    That is a stunning sight to see, a spawning aggregation I would guess. They are usually pretty solitary and feed on the reef top so to see so many is a wonder of nature.

    Thanks for sharing

    Hello,

    I have been using my TG2/TG5 mostly for video for a couple of years now. First thing I would say is UW mode is rubbish for video. I have two pretty good video lights and it was just all...

    Identify this dryglove system?

    My partner just bought a second hand suit on ebay which came fitted with a set of dry gloves.

    They are mounted directly onto the suit with a plastic cuff a bit like the sitech PU rings.
