This issue celebrates the life of the late PADI Platinum Course director, Witold Smilowski

In this issue we celebrate the life of PADI Platinum Course director, Witold Smilowski, who passed away quietly on Tuesday, 29 March. He touched the lives of many scuba divers all over the world and it’s our honour to remember his life work in our magazine.
Witold loved diving and he would have loved Aaron Gekoski’s article on Doctor Simon Pierce’s work with Whale Sharks in Mozambique. Likewise he would have loved reading Jon Wright’s story on the wreck of the Klipfontein, which lies in Mozambique waters and well within range of the average technical diver. Georgina Jones celebrates our Cape Fur seals and DAN launch their new HIRA program. We finish with a portfolio of one of South Africa’s celebrated underwater photographers – Geoff Spiby.
We hope you enjoy this issue and that it inspires you to get out there and dive.

Issue 13 celebrates the 2nd anniversary of the magazine

African Diver / Issue 13The 13th issue, but also African Diver's 2nd birthday issue is available for free download. The main message in this issue is one of hope and respect, nurture and trust. The magazine features the newly formed South African branch of the Handicap Scuba Association and how the diving community came to the rescue of the diver operators of Ponta do Oura.
With this issue you can learn of the lost spider crab species of southern Africa and enjoy a photographic essay on the beauty of the Eastern Cape and Transkei coasts. More beauty and wonderment reveals itself in the magazine's feature on diving the Brothers in the Red Sea.
And then, sadly, the reader will learn of the massive challenges facing marine conservation in Tanzania and the obstacles to be overcome.

Sharks - Up CloseJune 1, 2010 - 8:35 pm
Jim Abernethy's new book sinks its teeth in!

The award-winning underwater photographer and adventurer James Abernethy announced his first book: Sharks - Up Close.
The book lets you explore the amazing beauty and life of these  creatures, still feared by many divers. Jim's is one of the most experienced sharks divers and has spent a lifetime getting Up Close with many of the largest species of shark. So I guess we could rely on his knowledge and love for these misunderstood creatures, which fueled his passion to share with the world the true nature of sharks.

The 81 pages of Sharks - Up close not only leave the reader with eyefull of stunning imagery, but also provide educational text. This would leave you with a new appreciation for sharks and their plight for survival. The book is filled with information on sharks — from their unique anatomy to behaviors rarely seen.
    Here's what some of the world's best have to tell about Sharks - Up Close:
    “Jim Abernethy has spent a lifetime pursuing sharks all over the world and no one has been so close, so many times. In Sharks - Up Close, Jim employs his decades of experience diving with sharks to answer many of the most compelling questions about these animals. Jim offers the most spectacular underwater shark photographs ever taken. For shark lovers, young and old, this book is a must have!”
    — Howard & Michele Hall
