SCUBA DIVING LIVEABOARD DEEP SOUTH RED SEA

On Easter, 17-24 April 2014 we are sailing for our 14th group-organized live aboard trip to Egypt. (Για την παρουσιαση του ταξιδιού στα Ελληνικά πατήστε εδώ, For a pdf presentation in Greek click here)

For 8 days, 7 nights we will be living on board the M/Y Golden Dolphin 2, cruising the colorful deep south Red Sea coral reefs. We expect to have around 4 dives per day, overall 18 dives in 6 diving days.

St John’s is a cluster of small reefs offering some of the most spectacular underwater wildlife vistas in the Red Sea. Habili Ali reef offers giant gorgonians and black corals. We expect to dive with grey reef & silvertip sharks, hammerhead sharks, bumphead parrot fish, giant napoleons, snappers, butterfly and bat fish and barracudas.
To the north, you’ll find the St John’s cave, an area where shallow cracks open up into small caverns, a sight you’re not about to forget.
The Fury Shoal reefs are located just to the north. Diving spots like Shaab Claudio, the Malahi Playground, el wasta will leave us speechless with their labyrinthine paths among the coral covered caverns. Here we will also have the opportunity to swim with the permanent population of spinner dolphins that live at the Sataya reef.

Fish 'n Fins Scuba Diving Center in Palau Review

Fish ‘n Fins Scuba Diving Center in Palau Review

Diving in Palau is on top of the bucket list of every diver. Picking the right diving center will certainly make the difference between a successful trip and a disaster.

It was in March of 2013 when I last visited Palau and “Fish ‘n Fins” was the diving operator we used. Fish ‘n Fins is the oldest diving center of the island, established back in 1972 and since 1998 it is run by Tova and Navot Bornovski. The couple are almost always present at the shop, ready to intervene when needed and solve any problems. It is always a plus to have the owner on spot.

How to hide an eye!

Let us address an evolutionary adaptation that is evident when viewing underwater macro photos.

A lot of creatures need to conceal their appearance either for protection from hunters, or because they are hunters themselves and do not want to reveal their location.

As most photographers know, one of the best ways to locate a creature hidden among weeds, corals, rocks, etc is to look for the regular pattern of its eyes. Been round, symmetrical, and quite often black, it is easy to look for them among the background.
