Alternative "Scuba"

The Mini-B Shallow Water Scuba system is a unique diving package that puts the simplicity back into scuba diving. It is designed for the person who wants to try diving and wants the least amount of hassle possible. This self-contained package is lightweight and combines a tank, regulator, instrument console, and BC into one streamlined unit. The Mini-B makes diving accessible to people who don’t want to invest in the expense or bulk of a standard scuba package.


Snuba is an unique, shallow water diving system, bridging the gap between snorkeling and scuba diving. Snuba divers breathe underwater by means of a 20 foot air line which is connected to a standard scuba tank. The tank is mounted on a raft on the surface that follows your every movement. The airline allows you to tour underwater near the bottom, at mid-water or on the surface depending on your level of comfort.


With helmet diving all you need is the helmet and a swim suit. A constant supply of fresh air is pumped from the boat above you and the excess bubbles flow freely out of the bottom of the helmet. Your head stays dry, you can reach in to touch your face and you need no lessons or swimming ability.


Moby Dick

Local News

The first full-frontal portrait of an Egyptian pharaoh has been discovered by archaeologists. It is thought to be more than 3500 years old, dating from 1400 BC and most likely depicts the pharaoh Tuthmosis III or his mother Hatshepsut. The figure in the image is almost certainly royalty because he or she is wearing a trapezoid cloth garment known as a "nemes" that was reserved for kings or queens.

The portrait is painted onto a wooden board measuring 50 by 30 centimetres and is unique. Other Egyptian paintings and drawings only ever show people in profile, which the artists may have thought would help identify their subjects more easily.

The artifact was buried beneath a courtyard in front of a tomb in Luxor and was unearthed by a Spanish team of archaeologists.

The Easter Bunny


The Easter Bunny is not a modern invention. The symbol originated with the pagan festival of Eastre. The goddess, Eastre, was worshipped through her earthly symbol, the rabbit.




The Easter Egg

As with the Easter Bunny and the holiday itself, the Easter Egg predates the Christian holiday of Easter. The exchange of eggs in the springtime is a custom that was centuries old when Easter was first celebrated by Christians. From the earliest times, the egg was a symbol of rebirth in most cultures. Eggs were often wrapped in gold leaf or, if you were a peasant, colored brightly by boiling them with the leaves or petals of certain flowers.
