Divetech takes Innerspace to Little Cayman



Divetech is offering something special for their rebreather event, Innerspace 2019: the deep walls of Little Cayman’s Bloody Bay Wall

Next  year Divetech is hosting Innerspace, its annual celebration of rebreathers, on Little Cayman at the Little Cayman Beach Resort.  Divetech owner Jo Mikutowicz decided to expand the Innerspace silent diving experience beyond Grand Cayman, to the sheer and pristine drop-offs of Bloody Bay Marine Park, renowned for its incredible walls. Rebreather technology allows users to dive deeper and stay underwater longer, so attendees will be among the few to fully explore Little Cayman’s deep walls.

The event is scheduled May 18 – 25, 2019 and Mikutowicz says space is limited, so she is urging early registration.

Innerspace was launched in 2004 to bring rebreather community together from around the world to keep up with the fast-changing technical diving industry. What began with 19 rebreather divers has grown into a sellout annual event where divers passionately immerse themselves in the silent diving culture of rebreathers for a week. Innerspace attracts the biggest names in the dive business and the week’s events include lectures, new research and technologies, equipment tryouts, demonstrations and social events.

Over the past 15 years, our Innerspace divers have explored the beautiful deep walls of Grand Cayman, so we decided to offer them something new to explore – Little Cayman’s Bloody Bay Wall,” said Mikutowicz. “It means more organization and logistics on our part, but we are excited about taking the event ‘on the road.”

Photo Gallery: Dive Fest Barbados



In our Gallery feature, we let the photos tell the story… Each Gallery showcases a selection of outstanding images on a chosen theme, taken by our Underwater Photography Editor Nick and Deputy Editor Caroline of Frogfish Photography. This time they reflect on their visits to the Caribbean Island of Barbados for the annual Dive Fest celebrations.

Dive Fest Barbados is a week of celebrating the marine life, diving and snorkeling this idyllic island has to offer. There are activities organised each day for all those that attend that include wreck diving, marine conservation, learning to dive, snorkeling and one an unusual dive for us – riding a submarine to the bottom of the Caribbean Sea! Dive Fest Barbados allows divers to get the very best out of a trip here, with plenty of diving, but also to sample the unique atmosphere, mouth-watering food and drink, stunning scenery and beautiful beaches.

Video Series: The CCMI Reef Lectures – Part 4 (Watch Video)



Introduced by Jeff Goodman

Never before since human beings have had major influence over our earths climate and environments, have we come to so close to the brink of global disaster for our seas and marine life. We need to act now if we are not going to crash headlong into irreversible scenarios.

A good start to this is understanding how the marine environment works and what it means to our own continued survival. We can only do this by listening and talking to those with the experience and knowledge to guide us in the right direction.

CCMI (Central Caribbean Marine Institute) are hosting an annual Reef Lecture series that is open to the general public and Scubaverse will be sharing those lectures over the coming months.

Part 4: Stop Whining! Life as an Ocean Ambassador; Ellen Cuylaerts

Ellen Cuylaerts shares her insights on how to act, practice what you preach and use your voice to contribute to constructive change. Ellen is a wildlife and underwater photographer and chooses to take images of subjects that are hard to encounter like harp seal pups, polar bears, orcas, beluga whales and sharks, to name a few. By telling the stories about their environment and the challenges they face, she raises awareness about the effect of climate change on arctic species, the cruel act of shark finning and keeping marine mammals in captivity.

During this seminar, Ellen will take you on a virtual trip and show you the stories behind the shots: how to get there, how to prepare, how to create the most chances to come home with a shot, and how to never give up!

Ellen Cuylaerts is an ocean advocate, underwater & wildlife photographer, explorer, and public speaker.
