Kerrera Sound - scuba diving in Scotland

Diving in Scotland? Challenge accepted!

It was part of the deal: I moved from Paris to Scotland to finally live surrounded by the sea and go as often as possible scuba diving in Scotland. Of course, the water is not really at a tropical temperature but since I am a dry suit diver, what is the problem? Yet, after 10 months in my new country, I have to admit

Aqua Lung Blizzard Drysuit Florine World Adventure Divers

The quest for the perfect drysuit

3 years and a half. This is the time it took me to finally acquire my very first drysuit. Here is the story of my successful/unsuccessful trials of my early years of drysuit diving and my tips to choose yours.

Thresher Shark Malapascua Philippines

Diving Malapascua : playing hide and seek with the thresher shark

Muck diving paradise in Dauin, Philippines

Negros was the 3rd step of my island hopping tour in the Visayas in the Philippines, just before going diving in Malapascua. Surprisingly, I found out on the ferry between Tagbilaran in Bohol and Dumaguete in Negros that most travellers were stopping on Siquijor, the ‘island of the witches’, and not visiting Negros. Let me assure you that even if you are not a scuba

Scuba diving in Nemo 33 Brussels Belgium

Nemo 33: diving in the first deepest pool in the world

Have you ever thought you can also dive in a pool? Boring? It depends on the place! Nemo 33, near Brussels, the capital city of Belgium, is definitely an exciting place worth checking for when you can’t travel to warm tropical waters. At first, scuba diving in a swimming pool was not really on the top of my list of places I wanted to
