University Life On The Marine And Freshwater Course



Well, university is great! You get to meet loads of new people and party like you have never partied before. Well, that was before starting the course. As soon as you begin, the amount of work dawns on you. Well it’s to be expected that there’s loads of coursework. Thankfully, with the course chosen, you will enjoy it. I know I am. At present, I am writing up my research task on whether or not sharks have the ability to get cancer. It’s really interesting so it’s never a dull moment researching this.

I recently got the chance to go to The Deep and see so many of the creatures there. It was amazing (just one of the many perks of joining a course like this); I got the chance to see the endangered Green Sawfish Shark. Unfortunately, the photo blurred because it was moving so fast. The Deep have a breeding pair. It was such a great trip, and I didn’t mind filling out a sheet for a research task on the way round. You didn’t honestly think they would have taken the group there for no reason did you? The questions were based upon what creatures were at The Deep so we got to check out how they all move around the water e.g undulating, and we were able to get to have a talk with someone who worked there. They told us the basics of how they keep the habitats for the creatures perfect and quite a bit about some of the inhabitants.

In November I shall be taking another field research trip – this time to Scarborough to check out the inter-tidal area (rocky shore) of the coast, and to look at what kinds of life inhabit the areas there. It should be fun. If this still hasn’t convinced you to join a course similar to this at a university… what about all of the social events you get to attend? My calendar is full, so many places I will be going. It will be crazy. You don’t need to worry about finance either. Mine just went in today and if you ever did have a problem, you can easily talk to the money advisers at the university and sort out any problems you may have. See? Anyone can join university. Funding won’t be a problem and shouldn’t be a concern.

Hull University is a great place to come. However, any university with this kind of course will be an adventure for any of you if you’re up for it. After all, take it from me…you won’t regret it!

Katherine is currently a student at the university of Hull in her first year of studying Marine and Freshwater Biology. She hopes to become a Freelance Marine Biologist specializing in the cetaceans of the sea.

Diving The Wreck Of The S.S. Sapona, Bimini: A Sordid History! (Watch Video)



Another in the series of weekly videos from Divers Ready!

Probably the SHALLOWEST wreck I have ever dived, but one with a truly sordid history. I give you the S.S. Sapona!

It’s really a fun wreck to scuba dive or snorkel with tons of iconic photo and video shots, but more than that, we wanted to share with you the history of the S.S. Sapona, which draws from both world wars, the prohibition and the Great Depression and includes a whole host of interesting characters.

On top of that, the wreck features amazing coral growth! She has been sunk since 1926, so she’s a fully matured reef system now.

The S.S. Sapona for me is Bimini in the Bahamas’ can’t miss, must dive site, and with its sordid history, I believe this dive belongs on every diver’s bucket list.

Thanks you to the team at Bimini Undersea for taking us out in such style! Do me a favor TEAM DR, show Bimini Undersea some love… Connect with them here:
