The world has changed since we published our Spring print issue, but it wasn't going to prevent us from pulling out the stops to get the Summer issue of our magazine to the printers. While the world waits for restrictions to be lifted, it's time to sit back with a copy of DIVE Magazine and keep Dreaming About the Ocean. Here's a preview of what's inside


summer 2020 triton

If you fear Raja Ampat is becoming too crowded. there is a destination even further off the beaten track in West Papua which Douglas David Seifert reports is possibly the 'Last Best Place' on Earth for diving.  Marvel at the staggering marine life in Triton Bay which only a handful of liveaboards ever visit and has only one six-room resort.



summer 2020 blurred vision

Advances in camera technology mean that technique is sometimes lost among a catalogue of automatic filters and post-production tweaking, but there are master crafters who prefer to advance their art through innovative use of equipment rather than computer software. Nick More reveals some of the tricks he uses to bring life to still images through the use of motion blur.

Pakistan's small dive community is fiercely passionate about ocean conservation, and a local conservation group is working with fishing communities around Karachi to rid the local waters of ghost gear. Dive instructor and film-maker Nadia Aswani visited her former home town with photographer Alfred Minnaar to check out the local diving scene, and found much more than she expected.

summer 2020 tobago

Imagining the island of Tobago conjures up images of vibrant colour, an energetic carnival atmosphere and elaborately costumed residents. Francesca Page visits and finds that it is indeed exactly like that, both above and below the surface – and the perfect inspiration for her colourful artwork.



summer 2020 shark nation

The Bahamas has a reputation for shark diving, and shark-diving doesn't always have the best reputation. Alex Kydd visits and experiences a shark dive like he's never seen before, and finds that far from being exploitative, it has done more to benefit the local shark populations than in other places where rules are less stringently enforced. It also presents an opportunity for some of the most majestic shark photography, which Alex expertly provides.
