Currently I'm a PADI IDC Staff Instructor and have been instructing in the Caribbean, Hawaii, and the South Pacific for 9 years and have a USCG captain's license.

Bryan Swanson (SubmergedPhotography) As a biologist and underwater photographer of over 14 years my true love is bringing the beauty of sea life to the eyes of everyone. I have photographed reef systems all over the world and have seen first hand why marine conservation is extremely important. Overfishing and pollution from runoff are just a couple examples of human impact destroying marine ecosystems. I believe we can stop this destruction through education and bringing local governments around the world to focus on marine conservation. I hope my pictures help with educating and influencing a love for marine life. My fiancé Jen and I are traveling to the Philippines in May for our Honeymoon and can't wait for some amazing diving.
Chris Paparo (FishGuyPhotos) Born and raised on Long Island (New York), I have been exploring the wilds of the island for over 30 years. As a wildlife photographer, writer and lecturer, I enjoy bringing public awareness to the diverse wildlife that calls the island home. My passion for coastal ecology, fishing and the outdoors led me to obtain a BS in Marine Science from LIU/Southampton and I currently manage the new Marine Sciences Center at the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University. In addition to freelance writing for several fishing and wildlife related publications, I currently writes the monthly Naturalist’s Logbook column for the NY/NJ edition of On The Water Magazine. Although my work tends to focus on marine life, everything in the natural world is fair game.

Spending my holidays in Bali, my plans were to dive with Mantas as I heard Nusa Penida was "the" spot to do so. I´ve first get in touch with dive centers in Bali but quickly get advised to go straight to Nusa Lembongan, closer and cheaper than Bali mainland. Indeed it was a great decision! This island is a real paradise and people are so friendly! I´ve been recommended Legend Diving to dive with and once more, I couldn´t have take a better decision! I´ve been welcoming by the owner Isabel and i´ve been diving with her husband Ricardo who knows everything about diving and the dive sites around! He always had a great story about this or that and we laugh a lot! Everybody was feeling like home and so I was! Such a shame that I couldn´t stay longer! I would love to go back on my...
