The Pros and Cons of Shark-Feeding Dives, 04/2017
Last month Undercurrent asked, "Should the attraction of sharks by either baiting or feeding, for the benefit of viewing divers in US waters, be banned?" As usual we were inundated with many different opinions, many of them entirely valid. It's an emotive subject and we've done our best to construct and article that gives you a good cross-section of the many differing points-of-view. "The Pros and Cons of Shark Feeding Dives" is for you to free-to-read in this month's   Read more >

Editor's Pick of the month

Diving in Southeast Asia Diving in Southeast Asia
by Sarah Ann Wormald

There was a time when every American diver automatically headed to the Caribbean, but more recently the lure of the burgeoning marine life, the colorful corals and the inexpensive cost of living of Southeast Asia is drawing more divers to Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Diving in Southeast Asia provides a useful starting point for planning a trip. It provides maps spotting the locations of sites and brief tabulated summaries for quick reference. Every page is adorned with a colorful picture generally taken underwater. From marine life suitable for super-macro cameras to WWII wrecks draped in corals, from whale sharks to pigmy seahorses, it's all covered.

This book also provides a comprehensive section that deals with practicalities such as ways of getting there, where to stay, what to eat and who to dive with. The list of contributors to the text is a veritable Who's Who of experts on Asian diving.

Click here to order through Undercurrent and you’ll get Amazon’s best price -- and our profits will go to save coral reefs.
