Papua New Guinea - Rolling in the Deep

19 September 2014 - 08:11 AM

Hello everyone,

 

I wanted to share my first video from our trip to Papua New Guinea.  We stayed at Tawali and had the entire resort to ourselves for 12 days!  it was really a fantastic spot and we really enjoyed both the diving and resort very much.  While PNG is not exactly easy to get to, it should be on everyone's bucket list.  

 

This is the first of a few videos that I will be making from the trip.  Let me know what you think.  I hope you enjoy it!

Bali Trip Recommendations

19 September 2014 - 07:58 AM

Hello everyone,

 

I looking at planning a dive trip to Bali next September..ish.  We would have 8-9 days of diving.  Plus a few non dive days for topside stuff.  I am looking for recommendations for how to approach this.  Our group will be somewhat diverse, from hardcore divers/photographers to barely certified divers, to people who don't like to get wet.  I am trying appease all involved, which I realize could be very difficult.  Ideally, for the hardcore divers, we would want 4 dives a day.  For the newbies and those that don't dive, looking for topside activities for the locations we would be diving at.  And that could be as simple as laying at the beach at the resort, massages etc....

 

Also, with 8-9 days of diving, how many days should we spend at each location?  What should we skip?  What should we not miss?  I love macro and night dives, but also want to do the manta dive and the Liberty (which also has great macro).

 

I have done some of the topside stuff on Bali, so I am more looking to make this a big diving trip.  But realize that I need to think about the others as well.   

 

Also, any experience with AbyssWorld? 

 

Any help offered would be appreciated.

Malaria

09 August 2014 - 07:18 AM

Hello everyone,

 

I am headed to PNG in a couple of weeks.  Based on research from Wetpixel as well as other places.  It seems Malerone is the most popular malaria prevention.  However, my wife went to the doctor yesterday and he refused to prescribe it based on side effects.  It seems that with a lot of people it can cause depression not just while you are on it, but long term.  Anyone else had issues with this?  He has instead prescribed Doxycycline.  Which is still on the approved list for malaria from the CDC.

 

Thoughts?

Komodo - Macro

22 July 2014 - 10:21 AM

Hello Everyone,

 

I wanted to share my latest video I have put together for my 'Rolling in the Deep' Series.  This time it focuses on Macro subjects found in Komodo.  I look shooting macro, and I don't feel that macro gets enough attention at least from the video side.  Some of the coolest underwater characters are of the small variety.

 

As alway, comments good bad or indifferent are always appreciated.

 

Enjoy!
