Scuba Diver Issue 3/2013, AA No. 72
Adventures In The Indian Ocean
Drawing inspiration from the mighty Indian Ocean, this issue is filled with adventures from far-off and seldomdived places.
Spanning from the east coast of Africa, enveloping the Indian sub-continent, and smashing into western Indonesia and Australia, the Indian Ocean is the third largest of the world’s great bodies of water.
Photojournalists Yann Oulia and Gaby Barathieu report from the French outpost called Réunion Island (page 34), while Daniel Botelho dives into the extraordinary natural phenomenon known as the Sardine Run of South Africa (page 42). And for those who crave the unexplored, you’ll want to check out Warren Baverstock’s amazing story of a newly discovered whale shark aggregation off the coast of Djibouti (page 24).
Lastly, don’t miss field editor Justin Gilligan’s breakdown on diving with grey nurse sharks (page 52) in our Australia column. That’ll keep you grinning a toothy smile till your next submersion… guaranteed.
