All the latest from DIVE Magazine this week
EVERY WEEK IS SHARK WEEK
Just because a TV channel says it’s shark week does not necessarily make it so. The denizens of our ocean’s don’t pop out once a year to parade in front of the cameras – so here’s ten of our favourite sharks, with great videos from the DIVE Magazine YouTube channel to highlight why we think so.
This week’s #FeaturedPhotographers are Anita and Peter Verde, whose sent us an impressive underwater portfolio despite only being certified to dive a couple of years ago. ‘Neat and Pete’ are also keen mountaineers and run the travel blog ‘Summits to Seas’.
