    Celebrate with Belize

    September 13th, 2016

    September is celebration month in Belize. In true Caribbean style, the partying starts in late August and continues until the end of September.

    Carnival BelizeCarnival celebrations kick off on St. George’s Caye Day, the 10th of September. This date marks the victory of the short battle back in 1798 between the Mexican invading forces that intended to assert Spanish claims over present day Belize. Independence day is also celebrated in the same month. On the 21st September 1981, Belize was declared an independent nation and was no longer a British Crown Colony.

    Belizeans love a good party, not that any encouragement is needed for this diverse and spirited nation. Carnival and Independence Day provides extra special reasons to sing, dance, eat delicious food from a variety of local food stalls and hold vibrant parades in celebration of their multi-cultural society.

    This small nation is no bigger than Israel yet it packs a punch. It has created its own spin from Latin American and Caribbean influences while seamlessly integrating its diverse cultures of Belizean, Creole, Mestizo, Garifuna and Maya. Belize is sandwiched between Mexico (north-northwest), Guatemala (south-southwest) and the Caribbean Sea on their eastern shore.

    Blue HoleHere all travellers’ interests can be met. From museum visits, enjoying local delicacies (apparently the gibnut is delicious), forays into the jungle, excursions to ancient archaeological Maya sites, adventure activities (such as zip-lining, rappelling down waterfalls or exploring caves) and of course with such a long coastline beach activities and exploring the world under the sea is a must.

    Belize is home to the world famous Blue Hole. Diving this acclaimed site is a must for many divers, however if this is not your cup of tea, the world’s second largest Barrier Reef offers a variety of spectacular diving opportunities for scuba enthusiasts.

    Diving in Belize can be divided into three main areas. Lighthouse Reef, Turneffe Reef Atoll, and Ambergris Caye. Diving is year round, with February and March being the driest months and August through October the ‘wet season’, the more likely period for hurricanes. This August Belize unfortunately experienced Hurricane Earl. All our resorts have either reported no closures and are fully operational, only a few will close for a short time in order to make repairs.

    Belize Aggressor IIIThe good news is that all our Belizean resort and liveaboard personal are all well and looking forward to welcoming loyal customers. Magical images of calm seas and spectacular coral life adorn many of our resorts’ Facebook pages. Book your liveaboard or resort holiday now and celebrate your confirmed Caribbean diving vacation!

    Hawaii Is Home To The World’s Largest National Park

    August 29th, 2016

    United States President, Barack Obama, has focused on his home state of Hawaii as part of the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. The White House announced the monumental decision to increase the size of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.

    Ghost Octopus Hawaii_1The expansion of the marine park has resulted in it being the largest protected area anywhere on earth! The park was created President George W. Bush in 2006. It is located around the uninhabited northwestern islands of Hawaii and covered an area of 140,000 square miles. The marine park’s size will be more than quadrupled and will now include over half a million miles (582,578 square miles) of remote Pacific waters.

    This single marine monument is now bigger than all the USA national parks combined! President Obama used his executive authority under the U.S Antiquities Act. He extended the monuments boundary and ensured that all commercial fishing and mineral extraction would be prohibited within the monument. Noncommercial recreational fishing, removal of fish and other resources for Native Hawaiian cultural practices, and scientific research will be allowed if the appropriate permit is acquired.

    Hawaii_Spinner_Dolphins_1The expansion of the marine park was formally proposed by Sen. Brian Schats (D-HI). “This is one of the most important actions an American president has ever taken for the health of the oceans,” he said in a statement. “Expanding Papahānaumokuākea will replenish stocks of ‘ahi, promote biodiversity, fight climate change, and give a greater voice to Native Hawaiians in managing this resource. President Obama’s declaration is only the beginning. To create continued success, we will need to follow through with management, research, educational opportunities, and enforcement. This declaration sets us on a strong path forward for our irreplaceable environment and the generations to come.”

    Hawaiian Monkseal_Mark_Sullivan_1Endangered species, including blue whales, short-tailed albatrosses, sea turtles and the last Hawaiian monk seals seek refuge in the Papahānaumokuākea park. More than 7,000 species inhabit the deeper waters. The park is also home to some of the world’s healthiest coral reefs. It is theorized that these reefs are the most likely to survive through the expected increase in the ocean temperatures due to climate change. Black corals, the world’s oldest animals on earth have lived here for more than 4,000 years!

    “We are so deeply grateful for our President Obama’s leadership on protecting our great oceans and the saved realm of our seas,” Kealoha Pisciotta, founder of Kai Palaoa, told NBC News. “It is a win for the children of Hawai’i and for all the children of the world! Ola I Ke Au a KanaLoa (life to the realms of the Sea).”

    Such a protected zone will have benefits to the waters well beyond its confines. This means Hawaii’s already rich seas will continue to thrive and flourish and you can enjoy them by joining a Kona Aggressor II liveaboard trip and experience it all for yourself!

    Affordable Mexico liveaboard trips to the Sea Of Cortez

    August 24th, 2016

    The cheap and cheerful Quino El GuardianSome people think that a liveaboard trip to sample the wonders of Mexico’s Pacific coast is a luxury they cannot afford.

    Lionfish Invade The Americas

    August 23rd, 2016

    The alluring lionfish draws in both photography enthusiasts and prey alike. These unique fish are native in the Indo-Pacific, here they have natural predators and their numbers are kept in check. Unfortunately there are now established populations across a vast geographic area, including the southeast coast of the United States of America, in parts of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

    Their burgeoning numbers are a huge concern. Their flamboyant appearance conceals a voracious predator. In the tropical Atlantic they have virtually no natural enemies, breed prolifically (a single female can produce 2 million eggs per year) and they view the reef as a personal buffet. They are non-selective and glutton feeders. Lionfish have been known to consume 50 different species of fish and their stomachs can expand up to thirty times their normal size after a meal. Mark Hixon et al (2009) determined that a single lionfish can reduce juvenile fish populations by 79% in just 5 weeks.

    How did this beguiling and hazardous species invade and spread across such an extensive range? One theory is that 6 lionfish were accidentally released from an aquarium during hurricane Andrew in 1992. As far fetched as this sounds, genetic research supports this notion. It is however likely that many more of these hunters have been intentionally released by thoughtless aquarium enthusiasts.

    What is being done to reduce this destructive population? National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association of the United States (NOAA) researchers have concluded that invasive lionfish populations can not be curbed and will continue to expand. The diving community has stepped up to find safe ways to catch lionfish. One such method is the ‘zookeeper’, a plastic cylinder to store lionshfish underwater that protects divers from being stung, another diver has developed an adapted pole spear to safely catch lionfish. Researchers in the Caribbean are proactively ‘teaching’ sharks to prey on these predators. Time will tell if these unusual methods will have an impact on diminishing the population.

    We salute the members of the diving community who are working together to eradicate this unwelcome ‘alien’. Despite the dire situation that lionfish are causing in the American waters, divers can choose to experience lionfish in their natural habitat in one of the many superb diving locations in the Indo-Pacific.

    Scuba Cuba – Check out the video of Diving in Jardines de la Reina

    August 17th, 2016

    Are you aware of the buzz that Cuba is creating in the world of diving? During Cuba’s political isolation, Cuba’s reefs have quietly been thriving and playing host to myriad sharks, groupers, schools of fish and macro life.

    In Jardines de la Reina commercial fishing and industries are prohibited, permanent residences are non-existent and tourism is strictly controlled. This policy was initiated in the 1990’s by Fidel Castro, himself a diver. The national park, covering an area of 385 miles² (2,170 km²), is one of the largest marine reserves in the Caribbean.

    Sharks (as many as 6 species on a single dive), together with snappers, tiger and goliath groupers of up to 400lbs (180kg), are the main attractions on most dives.

    There are only a few Cuba liveaboards operating in Jardines de la Reina, so spaces are at a premium. The trips fill up early so you need to plan in advance.

    The Threatened ‘Rio Dolphin’ Needs Your Help

    August 16th, 2016

    All eyes are on Brazil as the host country of the 2016 Summer Olympics. Sea Shepherd Legal is making the most of the media attention and timeously staged its online campaign to save the Guiana dolphin (Sotalia guianensis). This is the same species that is depicted on the coat of arms of the host city of the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, or Rio 2016.

    Guiana Doplphins_Image Courtesy of Instituto Boto Cinza (1)The Guiana dolphins are locally known as boto cinza. They are similar to the bottlenose dolphin, however they are smaller and live in pods of 2-10. An estimated 800 Guiana dolphins are thought to remain, and approximately 10 are killed every month. Catherine Pruett, Sea Shepherd Legal’s Executive Director, “What we are fighting for here is to ensure that the Guiana dolphin doesn’t go the way of Mexico’s vaquita porpoise – a species moments away from extinction due to the same threats.”

    The Guianas are threatened due to fishing, pollution, loss of habitat and shipping and port development in the Bay of Sepetiba in Rio. Sea Shepherd Legal is working together with the Brazilian Federal Prosecutors Office and two local non-governmental bodies to ensure that this species of dolphin remains in the seas and not just an image on a flag.

    While the international spotlight is on Brazil, help make them accountable for the protection of this species. Support Sea Shepherd Legal by adding weight to the campaign, include your name on the petition now!.

    See Where Cenderawasih Whale Sharks Are Now!

    August 4th, 2016

    Cendrawasih Whale Shark “The Galapagos of Indonesia’s reefs”, Indonesia’s Cenderawasih Bay earned its name due to the diversity of marine species that calls this incredible area ‘home’.

    An innovative project by Conservation International has highlighted that many young male whale sharks, literally do consider this area to be ‘home’. Conservation International has been collaborating with Cenderawasih fishermen to tag the world’s largest fish. Previous attempts to collect data (location, diving depths and temperatures) have been unsuccessful due to the high rate of tags coming detached from these gentle giants. Up until now, fin-mount tags were not used as whale sharks are simply too big to ‘capture’ and bring along side a vessel and mount the tags.

    Whale sharks are inadvertently captured in Cenderawasih fisherman’s silverside baitfish nets, a favourite food of whale sharks. Before the whale sharks are safely released, Conservation International researchers attach custom designed Wildlife Computers finmount SPLASH10-346A satellite tags (with a 2 year battery life) to the whale shark’s dorsal fin.

    Whale Shark Tagging_1To date, 16 individuals have been tagged; 5 of these have been tracked for more than a year. Each time the fish surfaces; data is transmitted providing scientists with a wealth of information about the enigmatic whale shark. Despite their size and potential for long distance migrations, the data has shown that the Cenderawasih whale sharks are largely ‘home-bodies’. You too can follow the whale sharks movements via Conservation International’s live-tracking site.

    If diving with whale sharks is on your must experience list, then this is a destination not to be missed. Seeing a whale shark here is literally a sure thing! Dive The World offers you a number of liveaboard diving cruises to Cenderawasih. Our friendly and efficient sales team are available to assist you with your Cenderawasih liveaboard diving holiday booking.

    Nusa Lembongan Day Trips

    July 10th, 2016

    The mysterious island of Bali is the 5th best holiday island in the world (according to the 2016 TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Awards) – but do you know that one of Bali’s top diving destinations is Nusa Lembongan?

    The unique mola mola or sunfishNusa Lembongan is Bali’s little sister island located a mere 55km off the east coast of southern Bali. This gem is easily accessible via a short boat ride across the Bandung Strait. Lembongan is considered to be Bali’s premiere scuba diving spot by many. Here you will experience diving roller coaster ‘current’ rides of a lifetime. Your ‘ride’s’ entertainment may include manta rays, schools of chevron barracuda, lots of sea snakes, titan triggerfish or white and black-tip reef sharks all against a backdrop of beautiful hard coral banks. For those who prefer less adrenalin fueled dives, lingering in shallower waters (12 meters or less) will not disappoint.

    The main draw card between the months of July and September is the rare oceanic sunfish. Diving with the very unusual, curious and heaviest known bony fish in the world, is somewhat surreal. This experience alone will make your decision to venture to Lembongan during your Bali holiday worthwhile.

    Dive The World is here to ensure that all your diving holiday travel arrangements are as pleasurable as your vacation. We will book your Nusa Lembongan diving day trip packages for you, recommend hotel options where your reservation is one credit card entry away and also point you to the best operator to whisk you from your hotel in southern Bali to Lembongan in around 30 minutes.

    Lembongan Day Trip BoatWe recommend that you first choose your Nusa Lembongan diving day trip package. These relaxed day packages include pick ups from your hotel in Lembongan, transfers to the best day trip dive boats in Lembongan, 2 dives, lunch and soft drinks as well as basic diving gear (weights, weight-belts and tanks). Scuba gear is available for rent at a mere US$5 per day for a full set. Be sure to let us know if you would like to include additional night dives in your package. Your non-diving friends are welcome to join your trip at a reduced rate that includes snorkeling gear.

    If you book 3 or more day trips with Dive The World, you will receive a 5% discount on the total price of your Lembongan day trips!

    Once you’ve decided how many diving day trips your Lembongan sojourn will include, then our agents are available to guide your hotel selection. Don’t forget to check out our recommended door to door service, Scoot Cruise.
