Is this the golden age of scuba diving?

No child grows up these days dreaming of being an explorer hoping to discover new lands. It has all been done. Names like Columbus, Magellan, Raleigh and Cortez were there at the golden age of exploration and we can only imagine what those wondrous, exciting times were like.

Children a few generations from now might look back at this period with wonder – at a time when the seas were full of vibrant coral reefs and vast numbers of multi-coloured reef fish and fascinating creatures galore.

The future is now

It isn’t difficult to imagine a future seascape very different from our own if climate change and ocean acidification are taken to their natural conclusion. Dull seascapes with one or 2 drab colonising sponges or corals covering everything as a few boring creatures cling on to life beneath a water column where jellyfish thrive in numbers beyond our imagination. In fact this process is already underway.

People will look back at the period from the middle of the 20th century, when SCUBA was invented and into the 21st century as an incredible golden age. During this time it was possible to strap on a tank of compressed air and sink beneath the waves to see incredible sights of colour and life.

This is what reefs look like in your time

They will wonder why we didn’t do it more. We had the technology and the natural world was still capable of supporting incredible marine ecosystems, the kind of which they only see in images and stock footage from the past.

Isn’t it time to take advantage of the fact that you live in the golden age of diving?

Well at Dive The World we are not short of ideas! There are lots of different places in the world you could visit and have the dives of your life.

Have a sneak peak at our next dream destination – Palau – a gem in the Pacific Ocean home to some incredible dive sites. Here the visibility is often astounding and allows you clear sight of lots of sharks, rays, pelagics and schools of fish. You can also snorkel in the sting-free environment of the world famous Jellyfish Lake. The best way to dive Palau is to choose from our recommended range of Palau liveaboards.

Otherwise have a browse through what other special offers are available through Dive The World. Our destination list is long and inviting, so make it happen, before it’s too late!

Divemaster gets 6 months in prison for killing eagle ray

What do you make of this story?

A divemaster in Taiwan who killed an eagle ray has been sentenced to 6 months in prison. It is not a suspended sentence or one with the possibility of parole probation or early release. He will spend the full 6 months in prison for his crime.

Too harsh? A fair application of the law? Not harsh enough?

The eagle ray killed by a divemaster in Taiwan Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N Camacho handed down the sentence to Hu jie Fang, 27, a Chinese national .

He ordered that Fang be taken to the Department of Corrections to start serving his sentence.

The spear-gun offence took place at a popular dive site “Ice Cream Point” in an area known as “Eagle Ray City” off Saipan. The eponymous creatures are known to gather there in large numbers. Camacho described the power of a single photo taken by a tourist diving in the area to saying “each photo taken home with the tourist is free advertising showing the great beauty and grand scale of aquatic life”. He added that the ecotourism potential of the area “should be nurtured, protected, and grown.”

Prosecuting attorney James B. McAllister pressed for the maximum sentence on the basis that “ a strong message must be sent to preserve ecotourism and to ensure that Fang and other divers will not poach spotted eagle rays or other protected species in the future.”
Fang’s defence that he was not aware of the illegality of his act was undermined by testimony that he was heard to request others in his dive group not to take any photographs because killing eagle rays there was illegal.

6 months was the maximum possible penalty permitted under the law and Camacho had no hesitation in imposing a sentence he compared to much lesser violations. “The court can only surmise that in its collective wisdom the Legislature has mandated that the penalty for killing an eagle ray is equivalent to not having mud flaps on vehicles,” he said.
