Underwater images

A selection of underwater images from some of my favorite diving destinations - most of them located in the South Pacific, but also from the best areas of Norway, where I do most of my diving.



Beqa wreck dive

Rusi's pinnacleWRECK DIVE: Rusi's pinnacle is one of many great dive sites in Beqa Lagoon, Fiji. It even has a nice little wreck, an old fishing vessel sunk in 2000 - already fully decorated with colorful soft corals. The lone pinnacle by the wreck is full of colors and marine life, and this makes for a great dive between action packed shark-dives!

Fiji - soft corals and hard sharks

Shark in FijiSHARKS: Fiji is often referred to as the Soft Coral capital of the world, and YES - there are amazing colors in the warm, clear Pacific Ocean. But also prepare for a great variety of marine life, such as sharks, manta rays and sea snakes - and even wrecks, beautiful caves and swim troughs - as well as beautiful macro life, if you look for it. Beqa Lagoon in Fiji is home to the world famous Shark dive, where you encounter up to eight species of sharks in one dive - including Bull sharks and Tiger sharks.

Norway - diving above the arctic circle

Wreck in NorwayCOLD BEAUTY: Despite being located dangerously close to the North Pole, diving in Norway is actually not too bad. The 57 000 kilometer long coast line is blessed with the mild currents of the Golf stream. The diving offers clear blue water, lush kelp forests and a rich marine life. Well preserved German ship wrecks from the war are also scattered along the coast. Even some species of sharks are observed regularly in some areas. A dry suit is highly recommended. Although sea temperatures normally reach 20 degrees in the summer - it usually drops to 7-8 at depth.

New Caledonia - cool and comfortable

New CaledoniaUNSPOILT: If you have a taste for french wine, good cheese, shopping and comfortable living, as well as great diving - you might want to try New Caledonia. The world's  largest coral lagoon is found here, recently becoming recognized as a World Heritage site, as one of the three most extensive reef systems in the world. You will easily meet schools of big fish at close range, reef sharks, manta rays, turtles and sea snakes. If you are lucky, there might even be dugongs or nautilus around.

Australias best kept secrets

Sharks in AustraliaBIG STUFF: If you plan to go down under, you probably already know about the Great Barrier Reef - one of the worlds biggest diving hotspots. BUT forget about that, the real jewels for divers are hidden much further south, still on the Australian East Coast.   Between Fraser Island's Harvey Bay and Sydney lies some of the world’s most amazing dive sites.  If you have had enough of pretty pink corals and clown fish, and want to dive with the "big stuff", this is it!
