Freediving The Musan Underwater Museum In Cyprus

Alchemy partner Pema Chinyam (aka Pema Travels) has been traveling the world for the last few months. The assignment? To travel to and document 10 amazing coworking destinations around the world. Her second stop was Cyprus, where she got to freedive the Musan Underwater Museum. Dive In "Hey, it's Pema, Safety Wing's nomadic content creator. I was hired to showcase 10 incredible co-working destinations around the world and on today's episode I'll be traveling to Cyprus. Cyprus is a historic island in the Eastern Mediterranean. It's known as the birthplace of Aphrodite and it's one of the oldest cultures in the western world. These days it's a popular beach destination and I visited for the spectacular diving. There is, of course, a thriving digital entrepreneur scene and a ton of co-working spaces but for this vlog, I'll focus on the underwater adventures". "I started my time in Cyprus by meeting up with a local friend of mine Costas. He showed me around some beautiful coastline before letting me second shoot for a special bridal shoot. I love this kind of stuff and had the best time with this couple's underwater wedding photos. In the evening I went out for dinner and accidentally ran into this medieval parade. The next morning we headed back into the water to explore some caves nearby. Next, we geared up to visit Musan, the Underwater Museum, this is what made me want to visit Cyprus and I couldn't wait to see it for myself". Looking For A Neck Weight? Watch This!

No More Whale Expeditions For Kori Garza

Kori Garza is a marine biologist, professional shark diver, wildlife conservationist, UW photographer, and blogger, based in French Polynesia. She has been running Ladyshark Expeditions, co-founded the Mao Mana Foundation, and has also been featured on Discovery and Nat Geo Wild. Recently, she decided that she won't be offering whale expeditions anymore. This is why. Thank You To The Whales I've been blessed to live in Moorea and experience 8 consecutive whale seasons. I've been honored to bring my private expedition groups to the place I love most and share these experiences with them for 6 of those years. I thank each and everyone one of my past guests deeply. However, this season I have decided to close this chapter as I will no longer be offering expeditions to swim with the humpback whales of Moorea. This decision is one I've been battling with for some time, but it wasn't until becoming a mother myself that I knew this last season would be my final season. Not because my duties or emotions are now overwhelming as a mother, but my perspective on sustainable (and more importantly ethical practices) has changed. I can't imagine in the most intimate, emotionally and physically exhausting period of my life what it must feel like to have hundreds of strangers knocking on my door, peeking in my windows, and chasing after me and my newborn from sunrise to sunset in the place I have traveled thousands of miles to for safety and comfort. This is not an attack on whale swimming itself, nor on the operators who are just trying to meet the rising demands and who truly enjoy sharing their passion and connection to the ocean (a majority of which who are very dear friends, and even my partner/father of my child is included here). This is not to shame others who are comfortable with these activities, not by any means. This activity is one of the most important and beautiful experiences a human being could have in their lifetime. It's just that Moorea island has seen the explosion of this activity over the last ten years and my sensitivity in justifying my personal contribution to these activities has shifted. And I want to remain aligned with my core beliefs, which means taking a back seat until more intensive regulations are established to accommodate the rising number of vessels and guests arriving each season. Even if I only take small groups, even if we choose different time frames, even if we search offshore or in rough waters where other boats don't go, even if I set my own regulations for my groups by not visiting whales with multiple boats and leaving if other boats arrive to a whale that we have found... the contribution to the collective activity still exists. So thank you to those who have joined me on these adventures at home, where I have been blessed to live and share these experiences with you. Thank you to my incredibly passionate and dedicated captains and guides for the long days and countless smiles. And most importantly, thank you to the whales for some of the most incredible moments of my life. Protecting The Ocean In French Polynesia

I never thought a piece of gear would change my dives so drastically, but it did. The alchemy fins even when compared to other carbon fins are just superior, the finish and comfort it is just incredible. I do freediving and spearfishing, and for both it has fit the task. I am 205 lbs and with a medium stiffness I've found the proper balance. Definetely I'll be a costumer for years to come !

It's a great product but I want you to put a logo on the back of the blade.

These fins are a game changer! I owned a lovely pair of V3 before, but these are entirely different. I have the new blade fitted with the C4-400 foot pockets. They are amazingly light and responsive, but the angle makes a huge difference. They feel very easy on your legs and make longer swims way more efficient in terms of lactic build up. Perfect competition fins, for a great balance of power to work - I am really happy with them!

I absolutely love my V3 soft Alchemy blades. I first tried them when I was going through my Freedive Instructor Training and compared to other blades which students and Instructors were using these were by far everyone's first choice and mine. They are light, durable and every kick feels like you are cutting through butter. I use them for all aspects of Freediving which involve Spearfishing, Teaching, UW-Photo and even at my work which involves swimming with Whale Sharks (they are really fast sometimes!).

Best fins I ever used. Best on the market brings me down and up to 100+ with ease. Until they broke on me but I think that’s due to a manufacturing defect. Still can’t wait for the next pair.
