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 â101 must doâs for Kiwisâ list?
– 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.
– Divers, particularly beginners, are concerned about sharks. Not surprising considering the way the media makes sharks the bad guys. After shark week Iâm 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 Mauiâs dolphin, a critically endangered species found only in New Zealand.
– The best diving in the world? Possibly.

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