Wandering through the jellyfish colonies of Alaska is a breathtaking sight, so let’s welcome June with Tony Cheng’s underwater photos. In addition, in this issue of EZDIVE, you’ll explore Kimbe Bay, Baja California and Exmouth Navy Pier, which is considered one of the top 10 shore diving spots in the world.
Alex will show you how to troubleshoot problems without being surprised when you’re shooting underwater. Also, Monique Schouten, a shark dive guide, will supply tips on how to enjoy a shark dive when you’re ready!
The two ocean artivists, Janet and Janina, use different materials to raise people’s awareness for the ocean. Even so, don’t think that the threshold for marine conservation is too high. Check your sunscreen before you go out to make sure it’s reef-friendly – this simple act is a way to care for the ocean!
One of the highlights of Alaska’s diving scene is the swarm of jellyfish known locally as the ‘Jellyfish Bloom.’ Each summer, Fidalgo Harbour in Prince William Sound, Alaska has some of the clearest water in the region so divers visiting the area have an uninterrupted view of this spectacular natural sight. The moon jellyfish can number in the tens of thousands so, before a dive, weather conditions are studied and an aerial camera used to find the moving group of jellyfish. This will often extend from the surface to 20 metres below the sea floor, resembling giant transparent towers.
