Underwater footage shot whilst scuba diving in the Fiji islands and Tonga. Featuring colorful coral reefs, huge schools of tropical fish, sharks, humpback whales, underwater caves, scuba divers and much more marine life from the south Pacific.

Please “like”, favorite, share, or leave a comment here or on my channel at My Facebook page is at and I have more scuba diving videos and underwater footage on my website at, where you can also license rights managed and royalty free stock footage.

The coral reefs of the south Pacific are alive with a huge variety of tropical fish and marine critters. A great way to explore them is to scuba dive with the Nai’a liveaboard based in Fiji. I was working as the Nai’a’s video pro when I shot this footage. See

The underwater footage was shot in high definition HDV 1080i 60i with my Sony HVR-Z1P HDV camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing. The footage was converted to 720p for YouTube using my high quality method:

The music is “In the Meadows” by Stephen Richard Thomas Brown, whose wonderful work you can find here:

Bucket List Item – Scuba diving?

On my bucket list I have "go scuba diving." I decided I want to scuba at Epcot DiveQuest when I go on vacation. I have a few questions.

~How long does it take to get a certificate?
~Also I wear glasses so can you wear them with your goggles on?
~How hard is it to scuba dive 🙂

I would love any scuba diving advice to. Thanks 🙂

The time it takes to complete a certification course varies depending on how the dive center or instructor wants to schedule the class. A common way to schedule the course is over two weekends with the first weekend consisting of classroom & pool training and the second weekend consisting of open water dives. However, the dive center may choose to run the class during evenings and spread it out over several weeks, or may try to accelerate it through self-study. The average course typically includes somewhere around 30 hours of instruction, with the more hours the better.

You cannot wear glasses under your mask. If you are nearsighted and your vision isn’t terrible without glasses you may be able to get by without any correction while diving since there is a slight magnifying effect that occurs when light passes from water into the air space inside your mask. Another option would be to wear contact lenses instead of glasses while diving. A third option would be to get corrective lenses installed onto the mask itself, which means you need to purchase the mask and have the lenses installed before starting the course.

Scuba diving is not hard, but you do have to learn a number of things including some basic physics and physiology in order to be a safe diver. You should also be comfortable being in & under water, and need to possess basic swimming skills. A lot depends upon you…some students are very comfortable and relaxed underwater from the start while others may struggle and find it stressful or scary. Most people fall somewhere in between.

Before you even start learning how to dive you must be free of certain health conditions that can make scuba too risky for you to do safely. Healthy respiratory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems are all necessary to avoid injury underwater so conditions like asthma, heart disease, or epilepsy could prohibit you from being a diver. Before starting any water training you will need to fill out a medical history form that will help identify any potential problems which require a medical exam and doctor’s approval before continuing.

You may find the following link useful . It addresses a number of questions that potential dive students frequently ask.

The best thing for you to do is to locate dive centers near you and talk to some instructors about training. You can use this link to find the 7 dive centers nearest you by entering your zip code. If you can, shop around a little before selecting a dive center and/or instructor. This is a link to an article with some good tips on choosing an instructor that will be right for you:

Good luck.

Where should I travel to see the beauty of Nature?

I love photography, and I really have an itch to get out and travel while I am young and free of commitment. I have money saved up for travel (money is not the most important factor here), and I’m very much into adventure (parasailing, mountain climbing, scuba diving, etc.).
What are the best places to travel if you simply want to see breath-taking views of nature?

Dive in the beautiful clear Adriatic Sea
Dive in rivers and crystal lakes and wiggle into holes for cave diving
Speak in English and get replies in English in almost all of Slovenia.
Just as well too.
Here is the Slovenian Diving Federation
Parasail on the beautiful blue or green or just grey and sometimes black when there’s no Moon at night but sparkling silver and all romantic and lovely when there’s a big Moon up but half Moons are OK too on the Adriatic Sea. Parasailing that was in case you forgot.[]=1061&subTabID=subTabActivities
Paraglide in the Soca valley with the lovely Julian Alps all around
Climb the beautiful Julian Alps under a clear blue sky or another one sometimes cos you can’t have Paradise every single day even in Slovenia but you get lots of it most times cos you’ll still be in Slovenia and it’s magic in Slovenia
Walk easy trails or harder ones or run them if you like if you get enough porridge for breakfast
Explore the spectacular caves of the Karst Region
( the region that gaves us the term karstic geology)
Take zillions of pictures of trees and plants and flowers and animals and birds and rocks and mountains and lovely people and smiling goats and greengrocer shops and the old shopping streets in beautiful Ljubliana and the castles and the triple briddge and wonderful cakes and …and… it’s magic in Slovenia.
And it’s got a mountain on the national flag….yipppeeeee
I love mountains
It’s Triglav….the triple peak.
And it’s not very expensive in Slovenia either. In fact, it’s qute reasonable.
Three for Slovenia on the link and see Ike besi…she’s in the travel business. Old answer but Slovenia is even better now. It just had it’s 20th anniversary.;_ylt=Ag0EvJ84fRfw.oD5nrFzrS0hBgx.;_ylv=3?qid=20081130030454AAWVR6Z&show=7
