I didn’t see any responses to Scuba Cat’s blog Why I Dive, and as this topic is near and dear to my heart, I thought I would continue the conversation.

Scuba Cat has definitely touched on one of the key reasons many of us dive. We dive to fulfill that basic human need to explore our world. There is a little Lewis and Clark in all of us, and scuba diving allows us for that 40 or 50 minutes we leave our world to feel as though we have gone “where no one has gone before.”

Why I Dive

By | 1 Comment

Hi, everyone. Scuba Cat here. This is my first blog post for DIVEAAI,COM. I hope you divers out there will follow my posts as I intend to tell it like it is. Whether you’re an experienced diver or new to the scuba thing, I think you will find these posts insightful. If not, have you ever met a cat that gave one lick what someone else thought!

So here is my beef this month. I recently had the opportunity to travel to the South Pacific. While there I ran into divers from Australia, New Zealand, UK, France, and the US. Our resort was well off the beaten path and could not accommodate more than a dozen divers at one time. We lived in the jungle and dived the most pristine reef I have ever seen. Just looking at a map would have told you that this was a place for the adventurous and no place for the timid.

GoPro User Tests the SeaLife Micro HD

By | 2 Comments

With all of the hype surrounding SeaLife’s new Micro HD underwater cameras, they sure had a lot to live up to. Here in the store we’ve been receiving brochures and reading articles in all of the dive magazines non-stop for the past few months, all highlighting and reviewing the new cameras. So as you can imagine, when we finally received our first shipment, we were all excited to get our hands on them. The main idea I kept on hearing was how these cameras were going to be SeaLife’s answer to the GoPro, and as a GoPro user myself, I was a bit skeptical.

The first thing I noticed when I saw the camera was its size. The Micro HD is incredibly small at 4.2 inches wide and weighs only 8.8 ounces making it the perfect travel camera. You also notice that it is permanently sealed. There are absolutely no doors to open or o-rings to maintain making it impossible to flood. Turn it around and you see the 2.4 inch LCD display along with the easy to use “piano keys” SeaLife introduced with their DC1200 model. The three keys allow you to quickly change settings such as switching between land, snorkel, or dive mode. This is one of the coolest things about this camera—it automatically color corrects for underwater use, thus eliminating the need for an extra red filter for the lens.
