INTRO


In the hard copy of issue 91:



Explosive White Island –





Diving the waters around an active volcano was a disturbing prospect. As it turned out the White Island experience was explosive – for its beauty not its eruptions.



Marine reserves –




Yes Marine Reserves actually work!



Why divers die –


We discuss panic and entrapment.



Legends never die – Buster Crabb –




The one element that turns a myth into a legend is the unresolved ending …



Russian sub rescue –




The brotherhood of the sea.



Bismark –




Extreme depth diving is still the preserve of an exclusive group of adventurers.



HMAS Brisbane – a warrior reborn –


The first dives on the wreck.



Last Chance to see the Eliza Ramsden Wreck –


The first time I dived this wreck I thought I’d missed it and landed on a section of reef.




Clamp a tiger by the tail –





Shark tagging.



Frogfish, flamboyants and fireworks







Lembeh isn’t just about small and whacky creatures. There are a couple of wreck close by.



Mako Sharks –


They are especially attractive creatures and we have a genuine admiration for these beautiful, fast and agile predators.



Shark survival –


My first shark encounter.



HMNZS Wellington –




In just one minute 50 seconds after an explosive thud resounded through the waters she slipped beneath the waves.



DEMA, Las Vegas, USA –


Dave Moran brings us the latest.



Crossed paths –


The essence of adventure and exploration is increasingly more important in our busy, crowded lives.



A fun alternative – muck diving –


Anywhere you have a sufficiently large enough body of water a dive can often be had.
