Scuba gear: Is it worth buying your own diving equipment?

As scuba divers, we have the superpower of breathing underwater. To do it, we need scuba diving gear. To do it safely and comfortably, we need even more scuba diving equipment.

2 weeks in Gran Canaria: my ultimate itinerary for scuba divers

Gran Canaria is often nicknamed the mini continent island among the Canary Islands. I now understand why due to its surprising variety of landscapes.

While considering my options for this long-awaited scuba diving adventure in Brittany, I stumbled upon the itinerary of the Lighthouse Road. I had one of these lightbulb moments (ok,

On the Lighthouse Road – Part 2 – my dives in Camaret

In my quest to dive deeper into local diving, I searched for the best places to go scuba diving in Brittany, my home region. I discovered there was a corner I had never set foot on, even less a fin in. Before every trip, I’m always tempted to cram a little bit too much in a 2-week itinerary.
