Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable

Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable – Damien Hirst’s decade-in-the-making Venetian extravaganza – is as unbelievable as his title implies. I have never seen a bigger show in my life. The artist has filled not one but two museums with hundreds of objects in marble, gold and bronze, crystal, jade and malachite – heroes, gods and leviathans all supposedly lost in a legendary shipwreck 2,000 years ago and now raised from the Indian Ocean at Hirst’s personal expense.

This spectacular rock formation was discovered by divers in 1986, and ever since, its origin has been shrouded in mystery and controversy. Is the site natural or man-made?

Under Water Photographer Spotlight: Frankie Grant

The start of an eventful career usually begins at the bottom, and for me it was at the bottom of a quarry called Fantasy Lake, a few miles from my parent’s house in Raleigh, North Carolina. Diving hooked me after 30 minutes or so of floating around weightless with only slight brain freeze. That was 10 years ago as a sophomore in college. Working today as a PADI IDC Staff Instructor, it has been my [...]

5 Tips for New Scuba Divers

I remember it like it was yesterday — my first open-water ocean dive. I was in the Bahamas, and intently listening to the divemaster’s briefing. He explained we’d be making our first dive at the top of a wall. We were to meet at the mooring at about 35 feet and then we’d gradually make our way to the edge of the wall, dropping down to about 90 feet. Wait, what? Ninety feet, as in 9-zero feet? I looked around. No [...]
