  • Dive Report – Atlantis Reef and SAS PMB

    After a week on dry land while I was on 24 hour standby for work, I was super excited to hit the water again this past weekend and what better way to do so than on back to back boat dives in Cape Town’s scuba hotspot: False Bay. The weather had played along beautifully with […]

  • 7 Tips for shooting great underwater GoPro footage

    Since the release of the first digital Hero camera in 2006, GoPro cameras have become more and more popular internationally as the go-to camera for capturing any extreme sport from the wearer’s point of view. A decent waterproof depth rating meant that users could also take these cameras along on dives, and although this was not […]

  • Dive Report – Buffelsbaai

    On Saturday 13 September, our dive club set out to make the most of the great weather and free entry at the Cape Point Nature Reserve which forms part of the Table Mountain National Park. Entry is normally charged at R105.00 per person but on this day, it was free to all South African citizens. One of […]

  • Dive Report – Geldkis

    I have never considered myself an endurance athlete. Endurance sport was never my kind of thing, having focussed on things like javelin and discus during my school days which only required a short burst of effort followed by standing in a queue. I would look in amusement at those kids running around the track 7,000 […]

  • International Coastal Cleanup 2014

    To date, mankind has discovered, named and analysed over 780 planets. Out of all of these, planet Earth is the only one known to have an ocean, accounting for 70.8% of the surface of the planet and 97.2% of it’s total known flowing water, with another 2.15% being frozen in the arctic ocean.

  • Dive Report – Sandy Cove

    Greetings and salutations! For those who missed it, the weatherman was spot-on with this weekend’s forecast and we had an absolute blast hitting the Atlantic yesterday. A big thanks for Mandy and Naomi for ensuring that I didn’t dive by myself, and especially to Naomi for leading the dive. Site: Sandy Cove & surrounds (Kelp […]

  • Dive Report – Windmill and Froggy Pond

    With the wind having died down a little after weeks of gale force winds hammering the west coast of Cape Town, we thought we’d take a chance on False Bay this weekend and see what’s been happening since we last dived it. Unfortunately, the wind started to pick up again on Friday evening and by […]

  • Dive Report – Miller’s Point

    If you happen to be in Cape Town and take the M5 as far South as you possibly can, take a right at the traffic circle and just keep going along the coast, you’ll eventually end up at Miller’s Point: A place known all too well to local divers as the starting point for just […]

  • First Impressions: Knog Qudos action video light

    Howdy folks! As is the case with me, I’m always chasing down some new gadget and piece of gear in the never ending quest to find the best stuff to accompany me while diving. Now it’s no secret that I love photography and videography, and also all those little tight dark spaces inside wrecks and […]

  • Dive Report – Castle Rocks

    The day I finished my first PADI Open Water dive, I immediately started questioning the relevance of snorkels and until my first dive with Dave, this always remained something I wondered about. After that dive, I wondered no more. It’s not often that you see boat divers between yourself and the shore, nor require the aid […]
