The Transpac XT harness from Dive Rite was inspired by packs used for mountaineering. The contoured harness fits securely and allows excellent mobility. Thickly padded shoulder straps and a lumbar support distribute weight across the hips and back. This reduces joint and muscle strain while moving around the boat or walking along shore. A crotch strap is also included to prevent the BC from shifting while in the water. Optional weight pockets can be mounted vertically or horizontally and hold up to 16 lbs.

With time running out for marine life in the vicinity, it’s time to call the heroes. It’s time to call in the commercial divers.

Small Hope Bay on Andros is home to the world’s third longest barrier reef, so it’s little surprise that the Bahamas attract the big stuff. What most divers fail to realize is how much macro life abounds in the shallows. Like staring at an optical illusion, the trick to uncovering the magic is to never assume you know what lies before you. After a few days of diving reefs in the Bahamas, you’ll inevitably find your standards rising as you become spoiled by the 100-feet-or-greater visibility, sunlight-swathed reefs, schools of fish and endless color.
In late July, I took my wife and two daughters — Chloe Mei (age 7) and Ella Lin (age 4) — to Grand Cayman for the second of two Kids Sea Camp weeks at Cobalt Coast/Divetech.
When I received the Our World-Underwater Scholarship Society (OWUSS) Rolex Scholarship I knew only a small portion of what was in store for me. Of course I had read past scholars’ journals and scanned the Scholarship website. Yet what I didn’t know at the time was that this experience would open the doors to a whole new world - changing my life forever for the better.
