BlennyWatcher’s 2016 Review

January 21, 2017

BlennyWatcher’s 2016 Review: We didn’t post as much here last year as we would have liked though as diving goes, 2016 was a pretty good year. We added quite a few species to our life lists (including a blenny or two) and in our continued commitment to making at least one dive trip a year that is out of our comfort zone, we ventured into the cold water in the Azores.

A few … Read more Bermuda Bottle Hunting

Bermuda Flying Fish

October 15, 2012

October 2012 ~ Bermuda – an island where we ran wild with our obsessions! While I prepared to spend the morning bottle hunting with Tammy and Ken Marks, Chris Flook pulled up to our dive boat in his launch and rescued Ned, whisking him off to explore the Sargassum. An easterly wind had conveniently blown rafts of the seaweed into a nearby bay, giving Ned all the excuse he needed to jump ship. They came roaring back three hours later with a … Read more Bermuda Flying Fish
