A Little Mermaid-esk Dive in the Gilies

A Little Mermaid-esk Dive in the Gilies

Diving is always an unworldly and unforgettable experience, however my dive to Meno Wall just off Gili Air was by far the most magical dive I have ever done. It’s a 20 meter dive which means that anyone with their open water certificate can do it and people that prefer to snorkel can still enjoy great views of the fish […]

Sipadan: An Experience of a Lifetime

Diving with Manta Rays in Nusa Lembongan

Diving with Manta Rays in Nusa Lembongan

A Thailand Under and Above Water Adventure from Krabi to Phuket

After spending our first day on Railay beach, my travel companion Carmen and I thought we wouldn’t meet very many people as everyone seemed to be keeping to themselves. But that all changed when we met some really friendly guys staying on a boat mooring just off the island. They invited a group of us onto their boat that evening […]

Snorkeling Around Menjangan Island, Bali

Snorkeling Around Menjangan Island, Bali

The best snorkeling in Bali can be found off of a little island called Menjangan Island. Located 3-4 hours by car from Kuta, it is well worth the trip to see unspoilt coral and a wealth of marine life. The island is accessed  from the mainland by a 10 minute boat ride to Cave Point where the highlight is an […]
