Issue 9 of Scuba Diver OCEAN PLANET (SDOP) has just been released and will soon be available to subscribers and on magazine shelves in selected countries. This issue’s theme is “Islands and Liveaboards” and editor Gill McDonald has put together a central feature that covers some of the planet’s most interesting island dive destinations—from Lundy to Lanzarote, Mary to Malapascua—and rounds up some of the world’s most exciting liveaboards—including Pelagian, Fiji Siren, Bilikiki, and Tornado.
Other features in this issue include Kurt Amsler’s story of how he witnessed the birth of a sperm whale, George Stoyle on diving the UK’s most remote archipelago, Tobias Friedrich’s article on diving the icy fjords of Greenland, and an interview with veteran big animal photographer Amos Nachoum.
To round out the issue, in the “Through The Lens” photography section, the multitalented Erin Quigley presents her comprehensive Underwater Photographer’s Guide to the Maldvies, with an in-depth look at the sprawling archipelago’s best dive sites plus its eclectic animal subjects and the techniques you’ll need to photograph them. This issue’s awesome cover shot is by the one and only Alex Mustard.
