    New A Diver's Life Video: Building Our Sony A7Siii Underwater Rig

    The Sony A7siii is highly regarded for its low light capabilities making it a popular consideration for growing underwater videographers. Aside from cost, the biggest hurdle is the learning curve on how to build a working rig. Yet, we have not seen anyone share how to build an entire underwater...

    Bari Reef Tarpon Night Dive - Video

    Wife and I dove Bari Reef one night during our August 18-28th trip. As soon as we hit the water a single large tarpon arrived and by the end of the dive there were three. A little unnerving at first, then entertaining and then annoying. They were using our lights to hunt. Focusing on...

    Where do we go?

    My husband and I are frequent visitors to Bonaire. We have also done some diving in Belize and Curaçao, but we love the diversity of ocean life, the protected reefs, and the shore diving in Bonaire, so it has been our go to diving destination for the past 10 years. We had to cancel last year...

    Does Bonaire have similar sea life and less boats/jet skis than Curacao?

    Hello divers!, last year I was in Curacao doing "shallow" (no more than -11m) freediving (watching sea life and lionfish hunting) and had a great time. It was up west and from a small cliff (via a sea ladder) very very close to the apartment. The only problem were the jet skis... there were not...

    Bonaire - Suitable for long-term remote work?

    I love shore diving, and I hear Bonaire is the best place to do it, if you want warm clear water with plenty of pretty fish to look at. I'm looking for a place to spend 2 months each winter, for the next 10 years or so. Maybe not always the same place, although would make it easy if I found a...

    Occasionally, we get a little too close to our subjects and this big, beautiful, frogfish (roughly 18cm long) let us know.

    Airline Prices to Bonaire - ouch

    I am planning my 4th trip to Bonaire. In the past I have flown Delta and the ticket prices have always been $750-$850. I have been checking periodically and the prices are now averaging $1,200 - $1,800 (that’s more than I’m paying for an all inclusive week of diving). What gives? Is anyone...
