Issue 3 features in-depth Dive Portraits of Bali, Costa Rica, Turks & Caicos, and Kona.
We dove all around the island of Bali with our friends at AquaMarine Diving - Bali. In addition to the diving, we did a lot of sightseeing around the island, and stayed at some of Bali's unique hotels, such as Alam KulKul and Alila Manggis.
In Costa Rica, we dove on the Pacific coast with Diving Safaris Costa Rica. Every day was an adventure on these rich rocky reefs, with huge schools of cownose rays, pufferfish, and lovely seahorses and clown shrimp. Bill & Nadine Beard wisely recommended that we stay a few extra days and tour the rainforests of Arenal and Monteverde with Costa Rica Expeditions.
In Turks & Caicos we did some really laid-back liveaboard diving with the Turks & Caicos Explorer. The visibility was amazing and the conditions easy, perfect for chilling out and enjoying the sheer walls and the eagle rays cruising by.
The Kona Aggressor was our host for a week of liveaboard diving on Hawaii's Kona Coast, where we dove the lava tubes and hard coral reefs, and were lucky to encounter some of the island's resident mantas.
In the Reports section, we have a piece on shark diving and tourism, and also a sneak peek at a deep sea submersible. Click here to read some comments we've received from our viewers.
