A collection of links that have caught my eye this week.

Follow Velma (my super smart sister-in-law) and her colleagues at the California Academy of Sciences as they start their newest expedition in Sao Tome and Principe. There is some stunning eye candy in this post, in the form of snakes, frogs, mountain vistas and even a seahorse. For more on the education component of this expedition, see this post.

No dive trip in your near future? Check out the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Open Sea Webcam for an underwater fix. You might see some little old things such as hammerhead sharks and bluefin tuna.

And a reminder to use this widget to ensure that your seafood choices are sustainable.

A collection of links that have caught my eye this week.

Follow famed director and National Geographic Explorer James Cameron at Deep Sea Challenge as he explores the deepest oceanic depths of the Mariana Trench.  Cameron commissioned a custom built one-man submersible which is capable of reaching a depth of 36,000 feet.  The sub will take two hours to reach the seafloor, where Cameron will then have six hours to explore the Mariana Trench.

Dream about sailing around the world?  Follow Alex & Taru, currently in Antigua, as they live their dream on their Halsey Herreshoff racing sailboat, Duende.  World Tour Stories is a feast for the eyes, as seen through Taru’s camera lens.  Part food, part fashion, lots of beaches and loads of sailing make for an intoxicating combination.

And don’t forget, Beneath the Sea, America’s largest dive and dive travel convention is next weekend in Secaucus, New Jersey.  I hope to see you there.
