The 200th issue of SCUBA News! We sent our first newsletter in the year 2000. It was before any social media, before Wikipedia. 


The newsletter has changed in that time. The first issues were all text: no pictures whatsoever. We still, though, aim to provide useful information for divers who like to travel the world and care about the marine environment.

SCUBA Travel's insight:
If you are, or have been, one of our subscribers - THANK YOU! We couldn't have kept going without your articles, emails, suggestions and photos.

Nurse Shark

Nurse Shark | SCUBA News | Scoop.it

Nurse Sharks are very easy to identify.  They reach fairly large sizes (10 feet/3 m), but unlike most large shark species, they are not grayish in coloration.  Instead, they are yellowish-brown.  They also have characteristically round heads, barbels that they use to search for prey, and very small eyes.

Diving the Weird and Wonderful Browning Pass - SCUBA News

Diving the Weird and Wonderful Browning Pass - SCUBA News | SCUBA News | Scoop.it
Colourful plunging walls, pinnacles, thrilling drift dives, abundant life, orcas, whales and encounters with weird and wonderful animals. Every dive begins with all of the thrill of a treasure hunt.
SCUBA Travel's insight:
The Browning Pass was so full of life this year that it appeared to be moving at times. Massive schools of Puget Sound Rock fish, along with other juveniles, were so thick in some spots it ruined some photographs. Some divers even accidentally brought them back on board the boat when they became trapped in their dive gear.
