Jim's Findex - Mola

Next on the list of showstoppers is one of the most bizarrely shaped fish in the sea, the Ocean sunfish! The Ocean sunfish, also known as the Common sunfish or by its scientific name of Mola mola, is the second largest and best known member of the Molidea family. Closely related to pufferfish, porcupinefish, triggerfish and filefish, they are a small family with only five members, one of which was only recognised by science this week (stay tuned for an upcoming edition of the Findex!).Read more

Travel Insurance

We have been organising scuba diving holidays since the early nineties and although we do offer the best in scuba diving, we could not say that about the various insurance policies that are out there.

Travel Insurance policies generally have diving added in as an afterthought and do not necessarily offer the best service for people on a scuba diving holiday.

With that in mind we got together with an underwriter and produced our own policy that truly reflects the needs of today's traveling diver.
