Rottnest Island

Rottnest Island is a former prison island that is about 19km or 12 miles from Perth, Australia. Noted as one of the biggest dive sites in Australia it has over 100 different sub dive sites within it. There is a great array of limestone over hangings, various wrecks and even a sunken grotto which can be found in the Fishhook Bay area. There are no cars allowed on the island so you will need to rent cycles to get around. You will also need to rent all of your diving gear which is available from one of the many stores on the island. A visitor map will suggest to you a range of trails to ride on that will lead you from one dive site to another. Your private sea garden is just a quick journey away and you will easily see why Rottnest Island is such a tempting place to visit since it has so much to offer.

The Bahamas are an archipelago, situated towards the west of the Central Atlantic, north of Cuba and comprise of over 700 islands and and are a combination of the rich Atlantic marine life and the best surroundings of the Caribbean. Bahamas holds an important place as the world’s top five diving sites, as the vertical walls and reefs covered with abundant corals and sponges, along with a lot of wrecks and blue holes, offer great visibility to some of the most spectacular, plentiful marine life.

It is possible for the Bahamas to offer such a great diving experience, because of its natural geographical formation. Most of the Bahamas are covered by the “Bahamas Banks” Plateaus and about 20 pinnacles that Bahamas is formed of ensure that most of the Bahamas has shallow water, divided by a lot of deep ocean trenches. Over time the lime stones in the Bahamas eroded considerably, which triggered the collapse of the underwater caverns thus naturally forming plenty of blue holes. Bahamas contains the largest number of blue holes in the whole world in the Grand Bahamas and the Cal Say Bank thus able to offer diving experiences that can be never matched by any other diving site of the world.

The diverse diving opportunity that Bahamas offers entices divers from all over the world and invites them again and again. Sharks, Manta Rays, Stringrays, Dolphins, Whale Sharks, and sometimes Pilot Whales are often sighted throughout the Bahamas range. The Grand Bahamas, Barry Island, Cay Sal, Andros, New Providence and Bimini are some of the great locations in the Bahamas that offer exhilarating diving experiences.

Replanting the local reefs with nursery grown corals was started based on Ken’s own work with an offshore live rock farm as well as many conversations with state, federal, and private coral researchers. A series of projects started in 2008 to transplant colonies of staghorn corals to part of the Upper Keys as approved by The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The results have been encouraging.
