Does ‘Live Aloha’ Still Exist?

During our first dive, on our first diving day, on our recent trip to Maui, we experienced something new. Normally, we’d leave our flip flops – called slippahs by the local people – at the water’s edge, discreetly placed and out of the way. When we finished our first dive and walked up the beach, our slippahs were nowhere to be found! Two pairs of almost new flip flops had walked off on someone else’s feet! I grew up going to Hawaii during the summers, and in recent years, have visited the islands MANY times, always leaving my slippahs at the water’s edge with no doubt they’d be there when I returned. Is the spirit of aloha still alive and well? Does it extend to visitors? Because of my fondness for the Islands, I’ll continue to believe that the Aloha Spirit still exists and extends to all, locals and visitors alike.

Wolf Eel… So Ugly They’re Cute

Lots of firsts experienced during our trip to British Columbia, Canada. First time diving the emerald green waters. First time on a tug boat. First encounter with wolf eels in the wild. So ugly they’re cute, we happened upon several large males who were friendly and curious. With heads considerably larger than basketballs and bodies growing to 80 inches in length, they are a sight!

Cenotes Image Makes A Splash On Wetpixel

One of Jen’s cenotes images from earlier this year has made a (small) splash on Wetpixel, the on-line community dedicated to all things related to underwater photography and underwater videography.

Encountering The Largest Fish In The Sea

Part two of our co-led Mexican expedition with Backscatter was to Isla Mujeres, where whale sharks aggregate each summer by the hundreds to feed on the Bonito eggs. Scuba diving is not allowed in Isla Mujeres waters, so if you weren’t an endurance swimmer before the trip, you certainly became one during the trip! These docile (and vegetarian) behemoths are only concerned with feeding, and will even swerve out of your path to avoid a collision; however, you must always be aware of the possible tail slap! Read about our adventure here.

Joel and Jen were asked to co-lead an underwater photography expedition with Backscatter Underwater Video & Photo to the Cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula in July. Read about our adventure and see some guests’ images from the visually stunning Cenotes!

Scuba Diving Magazine August 2014 Issue – Imaging + Article

See the Light… That’s the title of our Imaging + article in the August 2014 issue of Scuba Diving magazine. Giving a few tips for photographing the cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, the article shares a couple of our images, camera settings, and best practices for the highest percentage of keepers from your memory card. In our opinion, the cenotes is a MUST for every underwater photographer!
