Project Shark: Galapagos

blue o two is offering spaces aboard Galapagos Master for seven nights in August when it runs its first Project Shark: Galapagos trip, hosted by shark expert Dr Elke Bojanowski.

The week will involve close encounters (some 33 species can be found, including whale sharks) as well as rays in their natural habitat, says blue o two, while reminding us that the sightings cannot be guaranteed!

The diving will be accompanied by seminars on biology and behaviour of sharks.

The trip starts on 20 August and costs £4043pp, which includes airport transfers, full-board accommodation (two sharing), diving and at least two land visits. International flights are extra.

For divers looking to make a career out of their pastime, meanwhile, blue o two has announced a Cruise Director Internship Programme (CDIP) in Indonesia, Maldives, NG, Palau, the Philippines, Red Sea, Solomon Islands or Truk Lagoon.

The 90-day liveaboard internships for suitable qualified divemasters or equivalent include full-board, training and practical experience and cost US $3000.

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
