Whale lovers might enjoy 'A Life Among Whales' from volume 2 of Earth Cinema Circle's DVDs. This looks like an awesome club for nature films. Click on 'Our Films' for a preview.

Anyone seen this film?

Keys diving

Please recommend me a place/charter/resort etc. I prefer one that my husband can easily go diving from that is kid-friendly. I stayed and loved Amy Slates's Amoray Resort but not sure that is so good for me to stay with my 1 year old in terms of stuff to do besides visit the pool. (Beach would be best.) Also might be cool if we do not need a car when we are there. But I am open to all suggestions! Thanks!

Help and Advice wanted

Hi all,

Hope you are all enjoying your Easter Bank Holiday.

I am after some advice/pointers/links/critique on something im working on. A bit diving related and a bit sailing related so someone maybe able to help somewhere.

In July my house contract ends as does my job. Having come back from travelling last year and taking up diving and to some extent sailing in a major way, im thinking now is a good time to see if sailing/diving is a career I want to pursue or maybe a career break I want to pursue.

As such im looking for some work in July along the lines of either working on a motor/sail boat as crew, working in a dive shop, working up to boat hand or maybe instructor. Im hoping to spend at least a year trying this out, if it fails I can come back to the UK back to an office job somewhere, else im happy to go wherever I can get work.

So, I was wondering if anyone out there has any advice, pointers, websites they can recommend ? I have about 3 months to see what I can find, I may have a contact in the Balearics who can put me up and introduce me to some skippers but I don’t want to rely on that 100% and would be nice to have a good idea of the market. I know there are diving internships around, however usually the cost is good for what you get but by the time you facto in flight and accommodation and no guaranteed income after its not something I can afford to do. Maybe a longer term one, or even some sort of sailing apprenticeship would be a dream job now!

Any underwater photographers out there?

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XTi and I would like to get an housing unit for it. Do you prefer the hard shell or the soft shell units? I'm thinking of getting this, an Ewa-Marine U-BXP100,

but I'm wondering if I should save my pennies and get something along the lines of an Ikelite system,

obviously there is quite a bit of a price difference.

I do rec diving if that makes a difference.

Thanks!

Anybody have experience diving with Mike Severns out of Maui?  My husband and I will be diving two days with his outfit next month and are looking for some idea of what to expect from the experience.

Is diving in Marsa Alam really great?

Hello AOD, OWD divers :)

Anybody dived in Marsa Alam area? Is it true that dive sites there are more beautiful than in Sharm or other places in red sea?
