Clean Up Australia Day 2017

Scuba diver prays Costa Concordia will sink: ‘manna from heaven’

Costa ConcordiaThere’s an Italian scuba diver from the island of Giglio, where the partially submerged Costa Concordia lies, who is praying the cruise liner will sink. Why? Because Aldo Baffigi believes if it sinks it will attract scuba divers from the world over.

I decided to take her to Manly, knowing that this was an easy dive with lots to see.

Diving, Dhows and Dolphins – A Trip to Khasab, Oman

khasab omanThere are only three things in Khasab — diving, dolphins, and traditional Arabic sailboats known as dhows. A tiny fishing town about a three-hour drive north of Dubai, Khasab is the capital of the beautiful Musandam Peninsula, but is actually the most northern tip of Oman. It is only accessible by land from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), kind of like how Alaska is separated from the rest of the United States by a huge swathe of land known as Canada. And up until a few years ago, Khasab was not accessible by land at all.
