africajohn T minus 30 days.... I wonder how many of these dive sites I'll get to dive in a week? I'm excited - been looking forward to diving here for a long time. If anyone has any leads or ideas on dive sites or dive operators, please let me know. Peace! 1d
  •   davetyzer Get your gas from a good PADI operator mate....dodgy compressors there and you won't know until you're 2 atms down. But awesome drift diving......jus 1d
  •   africajohn @scubagirlnmo thanks for the ideas. We booked an island tour in a jeep which includes a tour of the tequila distillery. I've done the bill shark dive at Playa - not interactive enough for me. Booked 8 dives and looking at a couple of night dives too. I might try relaxing a bit too - not sure I'll be able to pull that off though. Lol. 21h

africajohn UGH! This was taken yesterday by my good friend @blondemamba while on her honeymoon in Tokyo. Thanks Chels. No matter where you go in Japan, this is considered absolutely normal. We have a long long way to go before we convince Asia to stop killing dolphins, whales and sharks. 2d

africajohn There have been some terrifying moments for me underwater over the years but this guy scared the crap out of me when he charged me! It's crazy how big some of these morays get. They can inflict some serious pain. It was my own fault for trying to get too close with my camera. 2d

africajohn I don't have a lot of experience diving with Galopogos sharks but I really enjoyed being around this girl. She wasn't too big - around 8 feet - but she immediately assumed the higher position in the water and bounced the poor Sandbar shark to a lower level. She was clearly in charge. Beautiful coloring as the sun bounced off her in that beautiful blue water. Taken on the north shore of, Oahu while free diving with @juansharks of @oneoceandiving. Good times! 3d

africajohn When I'm down here the world above seems like just a bad dream. Down here I don't feel challenged. I never feel judged. I can't cause anyone pain - or be hurt by anyone. I'm never misunderstood. I'm always on time and in the moment. I'm thoughtful and yet thoughtless, all at once, and it's totally ok. I'm at peace. I'm at rest. Yet I'm alert and I never feel more alive. My world down here is incredibly complex, and yet ridiculously uncomplicated. If only I could breathe - rather than hold my breath, for it is breathtaking to be here. 3d

africajohn Not really what you think of when you think of Cabo! And by the way - the water is f'ing cold! I took my boys scuba diving for the first time - I had promised them all sorts of exotic underwater eye candy. This was about as exciting as their first dive got. This and borderline hypothermia. Lol! 3d
