Diving at Coco View Resort, Roatan Honduras

Roatan, Honduras has an extremely healthy reef system which makes it one of the go to places to dive in the Caribbean. Today I talk with Deb Karlson, manager of the dive shop at Coco View Resort about what it’s like there. They have some rooms that are overtop of the water so diving is quite literally right outside your door.

Crazy Critters of Lembeh with Marine Biologist Dimpy

If you want to add a full dose of ‘Wow!’ back into your diving trips then you have to do muck Diving at Lembeh Resort in Indonesia. I just got back from a trip to the resort and I can say it is everything you have heard. There is an astonishing cast of weird and wonderful critters to be found – with new ones being added regularly. The picture to the left is of an extremely rare Festucalex Rufus Pygmy Pipefish my wife Giny took off of Bangka Island at Demak.

The long flight to get there is more than compensated by the wickedly awesome diving experience, resort and staff. I caught up with resident marine biologist Dimpy and get her thoughts on the muck diving and the critters, today on Planet Earth Diver.
