Going back to Utila!

Yup!  My plane tickets are booked, and accommodations are all set..  Plans are evolving as I type this, but I have three goals for my return to Utila. Get all the 360° footage I need for my short film on plastics in the ocean. Research dive schools for Dive Master and Instructor Development Courses. Get…

The Road Less Travelled

  “Rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path.”  –  Author Unknown The road less travelled…  Such a cliché saying, but when it comes down…

Cozumel in 360°

Technology is a wonderful thing.  Its also somewhat addicting at times.  What started as a single GoPro Hero4 Silver has now become a monster.  My quest to share the world underwater with as many people as I can has driven me to experiment more and push some limits. Recent technology increases have made 360° video…

3 weeks in Utila, Honduras

What can I say?  To sum up 3 weeks in a few paragraphs doesn’t even seem possible, nor would it give much insight to my time on Utila.  No, indeed, I think this may end up being quite the long post.  After all, even though it is a small island, and seems like there would…

Stranded on a Tropical Island…

Yes, even the best laid plans can crumble when mother nature decides to play with them.  For me, it wasn’t so bad.  Yes, I was stranded for an extra day on the beautiful island of Utila, Honduras, and I secretly hoped I would have been stranded for a few more days there.  I kind of…

Certified Rescue Diver!

One of my main goals for my visit to the island of Utila was to advance my scuba certification a little, and complete the PADI Rescue Diver Course.  I had been told that the course would be fun, and that it would really make me a more confident diver.  The confidence part I was really…

Final week of preparation..

8 days…  14 hours..  13 minutes. That’s all the time that remains until my plane departs for the tropical blue waters of Utila, Honduras, and I get to experience all the wonders that lay beneath the waves once again.  That’s all the time I have to gather all the things I will need for 3…

T-Minus 3 Weeks!

A Picture is worth a thousand words…  And three weeks from tonight, I will be sitting on that dock, cold drink in hand, looking forward to 3 weeks of island life in beautiful Utila, Honduras.   It won’t be all fun and games though, as I do intend to complete my EFR / Rescue Diver…

Next Stop: Rescue Diver!

Well, my vacation to Cozumel was a ton of fun and went better than expected.  In a nutshell, it reminded me why I got PADI Open Water certified in the first place, made me a little sad that I haven’t done any diving in almost 20 years, and lit a small fire under my ass…
