Friday, February 21, 2014: Tropical Diving in Our Own Backyard with Mike Boom
When Bay Area divers plan tropical dive trips, they often forget the tropical diving on their doorstep: the Sea of Cortez. It’s a land of stark contrasts — cactus and bare rock tower over waters teeming with life. You’ll find a mixture of the familiar and new, from sea lions and pufferfish to giant hawkfish, tube blennies, and more varieties of grunts than you thought existed.
Join Mike Boom as he presents video about two dive trips south of the border, one to the Midriff Islands in the northern Sea of Cortez, another to the La Paz area and Cabo Pulmo in the south. Mike spent time time on two different live-aboards and one land-based resort, and has footage to share from all of them.
Mike will also present some video shorts from trips to Raja Ampat and the Philippines, and is happy to be grilled about video equipment and techniques and about life on-board ships being forced to eat too much food.
