From FEBRUARY DIVER
17 February 2017Competitive freedivers Tim Money and Liv Philip have been named male and female National Champions of the sport by the British Freediving Association (BFA). The annual awards are based on competition results across all disciplines in the pool and open water.
15 February 2017We know that marine creatures have finely tuned senses, but to be able to pinpoint from a distance a motionless, well-camouflaged flatfish in murky water through its breathing alone is sensitivity almost off the scale. That however is what researchers believe that harbour seals are able to achieve with the help of their whiskers.
14 February 2017The title Underwater Photographer of the Year 2017 has gone to Frenchman Gabriel Barathieu for his image Dancing Octopus. Taken at Mayotte island off east Africa in the Indian Ocean, there was only a foot of water in the lagoon at spring low tide when Barathieu took his winning picture.
13 February 2017A WW2 Japanese shipwreck dive-site off the coast of Sabah in Malaysian Borneo has been destroyed - as the result of "research work" commissioned by the local university's archaeological unit.
6 February 2017Until now scuba divers training at the NEMO33 deep pool in Brussels have had to surface when they get hungry, and eat at the complex's Thai restaurant. But now, for 99 euros per head, they have the option of staying submerged to enjoy fine dining at 5m.
30 January 2017An unlikely rivalry between underwater macro photographers based at dive centres in Indonesia and Norway looks set to become a bi-annual event. Dates for round two of the Lembeh-Gulen Critter Shootout have just been announced, and the search is on for competitors.
23 January 2017Today (23 January) is the 57th anniversary of the first descent to the ocean's deepest point. To mark the occasion the surviving explorer, 85-year-old oceanographer Don Walsh, is sharing the experience - by narrating an immersive 360 virtual-reality film based on the historic bathyscaphe dive.
