Around the Web

In today's update I'll share a few links from around the internet: has a several post series of Florida Keys dive sites. It certainly has me intrigued enough to get down to the Keys.

Alive2dive gives a rundown of personal gear selection. It's similar to our article on which gear to buy, but check it out for another opinion.

PADI Instructor News gives a breakdown of the new PADI open water prescriptive lesson guides and the new PADI Pro site (which is much better than the old one).

Tony Wu's underwater photography blog has a lengthy 3-part review of Aperture 3 software. Most of it is not anything specific to underwater photography, but it's interesting to see how a talented underwater photographer uses his software.

Duane at Precision Diving has an article on five characteristics of a good scuba diver. How many describe you?

Lastly, AquaViews has an article on brushing up your scuba skills, starting with mask clearing. I probably wouldn't be that interested, but it has video, which could be useful for those still getting the hang of it or who haven't been diving in a while.

Have a great Wednesday!

I'm always on the lookout for scuba diving blogs with great content. If you have one or know of one, please share.
