Meet Seb, he is the French diveguide that I used to work with back in French Polynesia 10 years ago or so. Seb lived on the island of Rangiroa and joined the Tahiti Aggressor when I worked on that boat from 2002 to 2004. Seb was a special kind of person, he loved sharks and […]
I am heading out to the Komodo region soon, I must admit it has been quite some time since I have been there, in fact, I haven’t been since before the major Sangeang Volcano eruption last year! Looking forward to diving the area to see what has changed since my last trip! Here is a […]

The Wayag island group in northern Raja Ampat, Indonesia is an incredible feast on the eyes, with hundreds of karst islets scattered throughout a calm lagoon. This picture perfect place is best seen from the top of Mt Pindito where one can observe the entire lagoon from above. For this photo I have used HDR […]
Photo of the Day – A blue ring octopus showing its colours, Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
