Save £900pp on a Cocos Island liveaboard trip with Dive Worldwide

Published

on

Cocos Island is one of the remotest, and best, diving locations in the world, and Dive Worldwide is offering an exclusive saving this May on a liveaboard trip aboard the MV Sea Hunter.

Marooned 540km off the coast of Costa Rica, Cocos Island is consistently voted in the top ten ‘must dive’ destinations, and is one of the world’s finest locations for shark diving. Water temperature is 26 – 29C year round and most of the action is found from 18-40 metres. The biodiversity of the marine life here is mesmerising – expect white-tip reef sharks, schooling hammerheads, dolphin, mantas, marbled rays, sailfish, large schools of pelagic fish, turtles and the occasional whale shark. The water is home to at least 27 endemic fish species and the small rocky outcrop of land mass is home to numerous bird and plant species, some of which are endemic.

The MV Sea Hunter is a modern, dedicated dive cruiser specifically built for long-range dive expeditions. The custom built boat is completely air-conditioned with modern facilities featuring ten en-suite cabins accommodating a total of 20 passengers (six double and two triple occupancy). Photographers are well catered for and the study provides a quiet area to edit images and videos during your trip. A superbly comfortable and spacious vessel with everything a serious diver could wish for, it is a rare hybrid that combines the large working platform and powerful machinery of a functional work boat, with the comfortable and functional interior of a modern luxury yacht.

Up to four dives operate daily, all from the custom built skiffs. Due to the remoteness and difficulty of some sites, divers are required to be deep and night diver trained with a minimum of 25 hours of logged dives.

Special Offer Price: from £4,575 based on 2 sharing (SAVING £900 pp on boat only), including return flights from the UK, transfers, 10 nights, FB accommodation on liveaboard, 7 days diving at Cocos Island, tanks, weights and Nitrox. Departs 26 May 2018.

Full Terms and Conditions can be found here: www.diveworldwide.com/liveaboards/mv-sea-hunter.

Take an immersive dive below the waves off the Welsh coast using 360 VR: Common Spider Crab (Watch Video)

Published

on

A week-long series from Jake Davies…

Below the waves off the Welsh coast, there are a range of species and habitats that can be seen. However, you don’t have to venture too far from the shore to see them or don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. Using 360 videos provides an immersive feeling of being below the water and encountering many species and habitats from diving one of the most important habitats and species that aren’t often seen whilst diving. For more of an experience of being below the waves, the VR videos can be viewed using a VR headset.

Take a VR dive just off the shore and explore what can be found within the shallow waters of a sandy beach. Fish can be founding cruising amongst the seaweed and numerous crustacean (Crabs, lobster, prawns, shrimps) species can be found walking around the seafloor. Common Spider Crabs (Maja brachydactyla) are one of the largest crabs species found along the coast and during the early summer, they aggregate in large numbers to moult which allows them to grow.
