After I retired from corporate life, Donna and I owned a Scuba Diving business and traveled all over the world diving for a number of years. We have been to the Red Sea, Australia, Yap, Palau, Truk, Ponipei, and most of the major islands in the Caribbean that have diving. If you have never tried it,you are missing one of the most beautiful areas in this world. It can be so peaceful, no phones, beepers, pagers, or anything else to bother you as you just watch natures wonders.

Nick, did you ever run across my friend Peter Kennett, who's been to many of those places you mentioned. He works as a diplomat for the State Department, recently in New Mexico, Poland, South Africa, and awaiting reassignment?

Rusty, don't remember ever meeting Peter. Most famous diver I ever met and got to talk to was Jean Micheal Cousteau. It was at a U.S. Divers convention , not actually on a dive trip.

Palau has the best diving in the world in my opinion. Truk Lagoon is a World War II history buffs wonder. That is where the U.S. launched operation "Hail Storm" and sunk a number of Japanese ships.
"In two air strikes, American dive and torpedo bombers sank three Japanese cruisers (Agano, Katori, and Naka), six destroyers (Oite, Fumizuki, Maikaze, Hagio, Isogu, and Tachikaze), three other warships and 32 merchant ships. Over 250 aircraft were destroyed, mostly on the ground." You can dive on most all of the wrecks since most of them are within the 130 foot limit of recreational diving.

The R/V Ukpik, making long close-to-shore transits in the Search for the Lost Whaling Fleets of the Western Arctic expedition survey area, provided an ideal platform for observing the state of coastal erosion – and climate change – in the Arctic.
