Scuba diving off Reunion Island

I can’t believe it has been two years since my last post.  I would explain that my life has been crazy (especially 2020…) and stuff, but so has yours. You, me, and eight billion other people. So meh for excuses.

To wind back a touch, we were on the tail end of a scuba trip through the Indian ocean, and  the last scuba stop before heading to Luxembourg was Reunion island, which is French territory right off Madagascar. Read more

Diving Around Rodrigues Island: Everybody Was Kung-Fu Diving!

You’ve never heard of Rodrigues island and have no clue where it is? Well neither did I. It’s not the furthest point you can get to from Montreal, but not by very much. Montreal to Rodrigues island is just over 15 000 km as the crow flies (one dedicated crow), while the antipodal point is roughly at 17500 km. It sits in the middle of water, 1500 km west of Australia. So you know, same oceanic ball park. A picture is worth a thousand words yes? Read more

Scuba Diving Around Mahé Island In The Seychelles, And Not Freaking Out About Worms In Your Food

I am quite behind on my posts, there’s already a whole island experience between us and Mahé, so this will be brief and more picture driven.

We found a place on booking.com,  that should have been pretty close to the dive shop and the beach, possibly with an okay view of at least greenery. Instead we got a major road with a bus stop and a crazy ATM trying to communicate in demonic morse code.  The light blue pin is where the site said our place would be, the red X where it actually (or close enough) was. Big difference, big disapointment, but when life gives you lemons you make cocktails with the local rum, and we did. Read more

Diving and Chillin’ in the Maldives: The Video Clip

So I told you how my GoPro is adrift somewhere in the Indian Ocean, and it is a real freakin’ bummer that I added plastic to the growing heap of junk floating around.

Also there’s some cool images I’ll never get to share.

Except…

A talented person (and diver), that was on board with us on the Emperor Voyager, graciously allowed me to share a video she made of our dives. So enjoy, and many many thanks Ms Sarah Wilke. Read more
