The Banda Sea aboard the MSY Seahorse

Back in late September VJW, myself and a couple other PNW divers headed to Indonesia for a 12 night liveaboard trip through the Banda Sea.

Re: Sunrise - GPO Hatchlings

Awesome photos Jesse. Really wonderful experience.

The hatchling shots are amazing, but the photo of the mother’s eye I found really moving.

Here’s my contribution. A screen grab from the video.

Diver closes others' tank valves during dives as a prank!

Uh, always good to know who you're diving with! "A Chinese tourist has apologised for closing the valves on two divers’ scuba tanks while they were diving on a group trip to the Philippines, saying it was “just a prank”." https://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/3027697/chinese-tourist-sorry-...

Re: Truth Aquatics Conception Boat Fire Tragedy

Vjw and I were on the Conception two months ago. As soon as I heard the news the passengers were asleep below deck, I knew it was going to be bad. You cannot get out the main exit if the galley is on fire. I don't recall being informed of an escape route above one bunk. I may have forgotten that det...
