Islands & Liveaboards Edition (Issue 6/2016)
It is said the world is a small place these days, and that if every plane in the world was grounded at the same time there would not be room to park them all.
So, are there any truly remote destinations left? Well, yes, plenty! In this jam-packed issue we go Off the Grid among the majestic icebergs and fjords of Greenland with Tobias Friedrich; to wild St. Kilda, the most remote archipelago in the UK with George Stoyle; to distant Truk Lagoon with Andrew Marriott; and review a fantastic new book on the haunting wrecks of tiny Palau by wreck expert Rod Macdonald.
We also visit the remote Tubbataha reef in the Philippines and the faraway Solomon Islands in our fantastic special feature on “Islands and Liveaboards”, which also includes Spain, the UK, the Caribbean, Bahamas, the Philippines, Fiji, Indonesia, Australia and the Red Sea. Something for everyone indeed.
To top things off, in this issue’s Through The Lens photography section, Erin Quigley of “Go Ask Erin” presents her extensive Underwater Photographer’s Guide to the Maldives, including all you need to know about shooting great underwater images in this stunning area, and the techniques and gear you’ll need to capture them.
As if all that wasn’t enough, we share the most incredible experience for veteran photographer Kurt Amsler witnessing the birth of a sperm whale calf, chat with charismatic big animal expert Amos Nachoum, and play with orcas in the Galápagos.
