Over the last three decades, the Stuart Cove team has helped sink more than 20 wrecks in the Bahamas — some as close as five minutes from the dive shop. Whether they were scuttled for movie sets or artificial reefs, most of the wrecks are shallow and carefully placed for optimum viewing. And since it’s the Bahamas, most sit on a bed of white sand, which helps bring out their natural lines.
In underwater photography, light behaves quite differently underwater and one of the best places to capture some of these effects is near the surface. Reflections can create a perfectly mirrored image and the arc at the top — called Snell's window — gives us a small glimpse of what is above the water. This image from Palau's Chandelier Cave combines both to create a distinctive image. Get Todd Winner's tips for capturing reflections in your underwater photography.
The Gili Islands are an archipelago of three small islands — Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air — just off the northwest coast of Lombok, Indonesia. Because of the abundant marine life and stunning coral reefs, diving in and around the Gilis is hugely popular.

PADI Instructor Joanna Hurford collected so much trash she decided to get creative and raise awareness about the rubbish issue in Indonesia and marine debris worldwide.

The islands of the Bahamas are a wide-angle paradise. Dolphins, goliath groupers, sea turtles and other hard-to-miss attractions regularly cruise up from the depths to feed in the shallows. For divers, this means encounters with big stuff on nearly every dive.
