Happy 20th Anniversary! Some updates from Global Underwater Explorers.
Congratulations to new GUE diver, Gordon Tan, who passed GUE Fundamentals at Perth Scuba, Western Australia. We had a great time in the west, overcoming some challenging conditions for a successful course.
In 2016, I joined the Lipari Acheo Project for Global Underwater Explorers and the Soprintendenza del Mare of Sicily, cataloguing and mapping the “Capistello Bay” wreck, a greek cargo ship from around 300 BC. An amazing experience. I’m excited to rejoin the project this week.

In 2011 I’ll be returning to The Thresher Shark Research & Conservation Project for a six month stint as Science Officer. Helping out on an important scientific and community project with some of the greatest people I’ve had the pleasure to meet and work with. I spent the best three months of my life there in 2009. Diving every day, researching sharks and mantas, […]

Other than being recompiled for OS 2.x backward compatibility, this update brings an enhanced version of Air Depth EAD calculator. The Depth slider’s range is now tied to the MOD of the gas.
