Plastic or Paradise?

You’ve arrived in paradise, the sun is shining, the water is turquoise and the beaches are white sand and lined with palm trees… You’ve been passed a cold cocktail – now sit back, relax, enjoy the natural beauty and heat of this foreign land – you’ve earned it. But what’s the actual reality of the…

Diving into Komodo National Park

What do you do differently when the day you’ve been waiting for, for over six months is imminent? Prepare your clothes the night before, get to bed early and make sure you’ve set an overzealous amount of alarms (considering you’ll be awake even before the stupidly early one out of sheer excitement). #DiveGeeks maybe, but…

Home Hunting in Labuan Bajo

It’s my Birthday! Today we’ve started the day with squishy cornflakes (strangely but enjoyably foam like) and a view across the water with the Komodo National Park in the distance – it’s a nice way to begin the end of my twenties, no doubt. Aaron and I plan the day ahead whilst we enjoy a…

Welcome to Labuan Bajo & Komodo National Park

The Gates of Heaven at Gambar Pura Lempuyang, Bali

Diving in Tulamben, Bali: USAT Liberty Wreck & Coral Garden

(First thing’s first… If you’re feeling lazy there’s a video at the bottom.) Today we’ve woken up to real a wreck, well, The USAT Liberty wreck that is. It’s a beautiful 30 degrees and breezy outside and we’re off to see if we can’t find a few more shipmates… Though the water is a moderate…

Wandering Deeper in Bali: Diving the USAT Liberty

It’s a nervous, adrenaline filled excitement as we head out for our first dive in over a year, having travelled out of the main Bali tourist spots to the small fishing village of Tulamben, a two hour journey by car from the airport. Arriving at 2.30 in the morning leaves a lot to the imagination,…

Adventure Awaits…

So, we made it. Fourteen months after returning home to our friends and family in London we are on a flight heading 14 hours and five minutes to Jakarta, where we connect for our final destination, Bali. Though, we then have to embrace a two hour taxi to Tulamben, our final, final destination – a…

The ultimate beginner’s guide to scuba diving

So, you’re interested in scuba diving? Fantastic, we couldn’t recommend it more!

First things, first – it doesn’t really matter if you can or can’t swim, what matters is, do you want to be under the sea!?

Scuba diving is for everyone and anyone that is fit enough to lift a tank and intuitive enough to remember to breathe. The extent to which you progress with your diving skills is up to you, but during an open water course you’ll learn all the

The Giant Red Tingle Tree

So often when travelling, we find ourselves in a place or situation so unique and humbling that it feels impossible to capture it in a mere photograph or video. But we try nonetheless!
