This site is an outlet for me Ab and my Wife Carrie to discuss our Scuba diving adventures. Most people want to travel or at least dream about traveling. Carrie and I are no exception. We are scuba divers thus all our travel is connected somehow to the underwater world.
Most of our travel in the last 10 years have been local here in British Columbia, Canada. This province has a lot to offer, but it is time we venture out into the world.
Follow us on our trips both local and to distant destinations. Maybe you will get some ideas of your own.
Most divers at Whytecliff park like to explore the deep. They skip the inter-tidal zone or what lays just beyond it. Well, you are missing out, if you are one of those divers . This is the latest installment of 4 Underwater Creatures In a minute, highlighting 4 creatures that live in the shallows.
There is a great biodiversity in this region at Whytecliff Park. Most of the creatures blend in with the sandy bottom and are hard to spot. Because of the shallow depth they live in, you can spend some quality time with them. It is a perfect place to do your safety stop and hang out for 10- 15 minutes exploring what lives in the eelgrass or swims around the pillars of the old dock from the 40s and 50s.
Many underwater camera housings manufactures use large acrylic domes as lens ports. This is done because the material is easier to work with then glass and a lot cheaper. It is shatter resistant, but it scratches easily.
Most minor scratching does not show up when shooting photo or video while being submerged. Deeper scratches on the other hand will. One bump against a rock, or boat ladder and you can have a nasty scratch. Replacement domes can be quite expensive. An Ikelite dome can easily cost you $500.
Watch my video and I'll explain how to fix this issue for a lot less
People always ask me what I see when I am diving in the waters arround where I live. In answer to that question I have started a project called 4 Critters in a minute videos series. It is to show what life you can find underwater in British Columbia Canada. It highlights the 4 most interesting creatures I encountered during that dive.
Scuba trips are a lot of fun. Especial if you travel to foreign destinations. The problem with air travel is that you have to be aware how much stuff you bring. Still you have to be prepared for equipment failure that can occur during these trips. I will show you what you need to put in a travel save a dive kit to solve most problems.
