Diving off the Perhentian Islands, Malaysia
Sunrise on Pulau Besar warms my skin and wakes me up for a new day of diving. I have been dreaming about my dive yesterday at Tokong Laut; the vertical rocks, the face to face encounter with a trigger fish, the fat moray eel, and thousands upon thousands of smaller species in large shoals. Pulau Besar is one of the Perhentian Islands in the South China Sea and is truly one of the last remaining paradise locations in Malaysia. I grab an ice...

Diving with the Great White Sharks, Gansbaai, South Africa
Shark! Shark!! This is something every swimmer, surfer, or boogie boarder dreads to hear. In fact it is a word that most people would rather avoid in conversation when in, or around, coastal waters.

Diving in Paradise Pulau Tioman, Malaysia
Non-stop work and 24 hours of travelling are instantly forgotten when we set foot on Tioman Island, off the east coast of Thailand. The only settlements here are located along the coastline, as thick primary rainforest is all that exists inland. The boat takes us to Kampung Air Batang, a small hamlet with wooden houses, palm trees, three restaurants and one open air bar. This is our base for a one week diving adventure. But first, only much needed relaxation! From the veranda...

Diving with the Manta Rays of Raja Ampat, West Papua, Indonesia
We are in the open sea of the Raja Ampat archipelago, one of the world's best locations to see mantas and the only one to sight the black manta. Dolvinus, our Papuan guide says, "We will dive in here and swim a bit, around the corner and along the reef on your right side. When I signal, we stop. The current will get strong but we will hold in one place. The mantas like it here, especially early morning when the current has...
