Introducing Kids to our Ocean Creatures Just Might Save our Oceans!

I have spent a lifetime in, and around, the ocean. When I am not in or at the ocean, I am thinking about the ocean! After 30 years of diving, I have seen the damage that global warming, trash, and especially plastic have wrought. Realizing that our oceans and coral reefs are in trouble, I am not alone in wondering how we can reach people and make the change that is needed so desperately. How can we make them care? So far, we have not been able to excite people to make change.

Swimming through the sea: Adventures at the Great Barrier Reef

by Gabriel Miller / Oct 09, 2017 /

Nothing, I think, hurts much more than extremely cold water. It is like a thousand little knives hitting your body. And then there’s the bone-aching cold that numbs your body and makes it hurt to move. You do not want to swim in extremely cold water, unless you have a dry suit. Fortunately we were going scuba diving in Northern Australia - in Cairns.

Underwater Dominica: Dive Fest

Once you've been underwater - really underwater, snorkeling or scuba-diving, your perspective on the world changes. You can't wait to get back underwater. I remember this well, and despite jellyfish stings, sunburn, and seasickness, I try my hardest to get in the ocean and get underwater any chance I can. Imagine my delight when I found out about Dive Fest, on the Caribbean island of Dominica. Located between Guadeloupe and Martinique, Dominica seems to be a scuba-diving paradise.
