In the hard copy of the August/September 2007 issue:



Gisborne – Eastland first to catch the sun –


Too far away? Way out East? Well, you could be in for a surprise, the area has a lot to offer, including some fantastic diving.



Diving is adventure –


Risk and danger are not the same thing though they are often confused by authorities in the name of safety. Really they just want to restrict your adventure.



Leigh Bishop –


International deep technical diver.



Te Waikoropupu Springs –


For divers and in particular underwater photographers the clarity of the spring water is an environment like no other on the planet.



Anzac Day at the Poor Knights –


There was a bevy of five mature butterfish mimicking seaweed fronds, just below the surface and totally unafraid.



Snapper at the Goat –


You are never alone when you dive at Goat Island marine reserve – it is home to some of the biggest snapper on the coastline.



Having the right stuff –


On board the Navy’s diving support vessel, HMNZS Manawanui , interviewing a Navy diver.



Diving the Brisbane –


Below us the boat’s shadow is surrounded by dancing sun rays. There is another shape too, the top of the former Australian destroyer Brisbane, just eight metres down.



A lobster’s tale –


The hunter/gatherer diver’s quest … a nice crayfish!



Dodging the bullet –


After losing in majority to pro whalers at the 2006 conference, it was dubious whether the

whaling moratorium could dodge the bullet again this year.



What’s really down there –


Oceans survey 20/20



Dinner was a quick paddle away –


Spearfising from a kayak.



Point and shoot vs SLR –


What camera system is best for me?
