In the hard copy of the December/January 2007 issue:



Goat Island Adventures in a Kiwi Paradise


– An eclectic mix of divers, researchers, writers, families, kayakers, tourists and more.    Is it on your ‘101 must do’s for Kiwis’ list?



Junkers JU-52



– I found it remarkable to be hovering in no more than eight metres of clear green/blue tinged water of a rather nondescript lake high in the mountains in Norway, staring at a tangible object that needed no imagination to conjure up a picture of activity in 1940 as this very aircraft landed on the lake.



Freediving Adventures, Raoul Island


– The behemoth came for me incessantly as I stared transfixed into the gaping cavern of its throat, framed by a pair of huge yawning jaws draped in a bristling array of savage teeth.



Dive Like A Hog


– As technical diving becomes more popular, the boundary between recreational and technical diving blurs.

Oh for the Wongs of a Dive – A lighthearted look at the difference between a dive and a dove.



What Sh-Sh-Shark?


– Divers, particularly beginners, are concerned about sharks. Not surprising considering the way the media makes sharks the bad guys. After shark week I’m afraid to have a bath.



The lost wrecks of World War II


The HMAS Sydney, lost in time.



Dangers of the Deep


– Considered to be non-aggressive and  more inclined to flee from a diver than to attack, stingrays have made macabre headlines recently.



New Zealand Dolphin Under Threat


– New technology helps with the study of Maui’s dolphin, a critically endangered species found only in New Zealand.



Christmas Island


– The best diving in the world? Possibly.



4Collecting Kina in 12 Metres at 78o South


– Standing on two metre thick ice at nearly 78oS, considerably more gear was required   than a mere mask, snorkel and fins.



Beneath Italian Seas


–  Impressions by a Kiwi biologist.



Ben Cropp


– (part two) interview with Australian legend Ben Cropp: his life and the inspiration behind his book Ben Cropp – Blood in  the Water.



Camera Housings


– Experiences using Ikelite Nikon D70-200.
