The Ribbon Reefs are a string of ten large reefs that together form the outer edge of Australia's Great Barrier Reef. One feature of the Ribbons is that they serve to shelter the inner reef from big storm damage. The Ribbon Reefs are home to some of the GBR's most popular dive sites. "Steve's Bommie", "Lighthouse Bommie" and "Cod Hole" are among the best known. But there are also other more recently discovered sites that were real standouts on our recent expedition (June 2011). "Acropolis" is one of the sites that is new to me. It boasts the most perfect fields of Acropora coral I have ever seen. Table corals that are 12' / 3.6m in diameter are common here. Uninterrupted fields of staghorn corals extend beyond the 100' / 30m visibility in all directions. Coral cover is close to 100% on t...

This 4 metre plus female great white had just bitten Mark's cage and was circling when he turned on his camera .... at 1.09 he see's it approaching from behind his cage. He's been down at 26 metres for over half an hour and is forced to make a decision. Stay on the bottom and run into decompression time or confront it ....

A scuba diver thought he was doomed when he was lost at sea, 30 miles off the coast of Australia last month, and he is now thanking his lucky stars - and his wetsuit - for saving his life. Jacob Childs recorded his harrowing ordeal on a GoPro camera when he accidentally strayed away from his diving group off the coast of Queensland. The water apparel prevented him from getting hypothermia during the six-hour nightmare.

Meet Rick Anderson, an Australian man who calls a female Port Jackson shark his friend, saying she comes to cuddle with him whenever she sees him. “I started playing with her about seven years ago when she was just a pup about 6 inches long,” Anderson told The Dodo. “I approached her carefully so as not to spook her, then began to gently pat her. Once she got used to me, I would cradle her in my hand and talk soothingly to her through my regulator.” The man, who has been scuba diving for 27 years and runs a dive school, added: “Over the following seasons, she’d recognize me and would swim up to me for a pat and cuddle. She soon got used to me — to the point where she will swim up to me when I’m going past, and tap me on the legs until I hold my arms out for her to lay on for a cuddle.” “Mo...
QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA — A 68-year-old man is lucky to be alive after spending 18 hours lost at sea this week. John “Lucky Les” Brierly was swimming off the coast in Queensland, Australia at a dive spot called Yongala wreck on Sunday afternoon, reported the Townsville Bulletin. But it all went wrong when he was pulled away by a powerful current. According to the Guardian, a friend alerted authorities when he didn’t return. Brierly was being pulled some 50 kilometers away into shark-infested waters at Cape Upstart. That area is reportedly home to sharks. A search and rescue was launched for him and he was eventually pulled from the water at around 11 a.m on Monday. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most ente...

The Cod Hole is one of the signature dives on the far northern section of Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Our recent expedition to the region (June 2011) was only a few months after Cyclone Yasi, and I'd heard some worrying reports of coral damage. I was anxious to see it for myself, and to spend some quality time with the biggest friendly fish I have ever had the pleasure of diving with. Plus, this dive site was always on my list to provide some nice footage for our upcoming "Diving Queensland" DVD (http://www.underseaproductions.com/projects/diving-queensland). The reassuring news is the Cod Hole is still in very fine condition. The storm did cause some coral damage in the shallows, but below approx 8m (26') the coral is looking good—in some areas it's excellent. The fish life is as p...
A diving instructor got the opportunity to watch cuttlefish migrating in June off the coast of Australia. The migration is a time for the fish to pick partners and breed. The colourful footage taken by Jonathon Di Cecco shows the fish "courting and flirting" as the males try to win over the females in an underwater competition to find a mate. The migration takes place annually during the winter months, between May and August, Di Cecco told Reuters, with thousands of fish putting "on a technicoloured display" watched by scuba divers and snorkelers. "This was the first time I have personally viewed the migration, but it has always been on the bucket list for me," Di Cecco said.
