Australian Underwater Products® become sole distributer of McNett’s M-Essentials™ brand.

Saving Philippines Reef Project

McNett® has launched its new look brand, M Essentials™ to the dive and water sports industries, and at the some time announced Australian Underwater Products (AUP) as it’s sole distributer of the brand in Australia. 

Fishing is the most important source of food for a large percentage of the population of the Philippines, however a growing population is putting increasing pressure on this limited resource, driving some to adopt damaging practices such as dynamite fishing and cyanide fishing. The Saving Philippine Reefs (SPR) Project is a yearly reef monitoring expedition founded by eminent Marine Biologist Dr. Alan White from the Centre for Coastal Conservation Education Foundation (CCEF) in partnership with the Unico Conservation Foundation (UCF) to address this problem. The aim of the project is to improve the quality and quantity of information available on coral reefs for use in improving management and creation of appropriate policies for protection and sustainable use of coastal resources.

“For retailers and customers who broadly define themselves as water enthusiasts, M Essentials has wide appeal as a water sports brand,” said David Wiggs, marketing vice president. “As a trusted name in the dive industry, McNett hopes other water sports participants come to embrace the same products that our dive community has come to love.” While the presentation and appearance is different from what many retailers and consumers are used to in the dive industry, the new packaging makes it easier to locate the appropriate product by category (i.e., maintenance, repair, cleaning, etc.) by featuring an easy-to-follow colour tabbed system. “M Essentials still features some of the same iconic visual cues that retailers and customers have come to expect including the Aquaseal seal and the orange coloured bottled caps on Sea Drops,” said Wiggs. “We also still continue to back our products with expert knowledge, tips and educational materials.” For AUP it adds to the already successful brands they represent, and although AUP has distributed McNett products over the last 8 years the McNett brands have previously also been distributed by multiple distributers within Australia. “It’s a significant acquisition for us... I also see it as a testament to the previous hard work AUP has undertaken over the last 8 years to grow the brand,” said Adrian Briggs, AUP general manager. “We are extremely proud and honoured to be given sole distributorship by McNett and the new M-Essentials brand. We are working hard to ensure the ongoing success of McNett brands to retailers and consumers within Australia, as well as expanding our sales beyond the dive market.”  said Briggs.

Vanuatu – Yumi Tugeta Yumi Tugeta is an innovative marine conservation DVD developed by the Youth of Pele Island Vanuatu in partnership with Sheree Marris and her team. The concept of this project is ‘By youth, for youth’ . People under 25 are posing the highest threat to the valuable reef ecosystems of pacific island communities. Although there is an enormous amount of information out there on climate change and managing marine resources, very little of it is tailored to the communities in the Pacific that reflects island cultures and values. Island youth know that what they do now will define the way they live their lives for years to come, and they want to be active participants in the global conservation debate. So the youth decided to do something about it by setting up the Nguna-Pele Marine Protected Area Network, Vanuatu’s first marine protected area. Using examples from this project the youth will inspire and demonstrate to their brothers and sisters around the Pacific how they can secure their futures, adapt to climate change, develop their villages and communities and sustainably manage the coral reef ecosystems that they all depend on.

CELEBRATING 40 YEARS

Bob Hollis and Oceanic celebrate 40 years. By Bret Gilliam

The company known as Oceanic is aptly named: it is the result of one man’s love of the sea. The company… the man. They are inseparable. And forever joined by a common DNA. Many companies have reached their 40th birthday in the diving industry. But only one, Oceanic, has had one man at its helm from inception to the present day. That’s truly unique.

1973. Bob Hollis gearing up for another Andrea Doria dive aboard the Narragansett.


CELEBRATING 40 YEARS

Oceanic… and Hollis… two entities that long ago merged into one like some experiment crafted in a lab by a gifted mad scientist with an entrepreneurial gene of his own. Well, whatever Petri dish he was using to mix up this batch of corporate and individual “lighting in a bottle” worked out pretty well. It’s impossible to have a dialogue about Oceanic without going immediately to the character that conceived and founded the company. So let’s introduce him at the outset. Bob Hollis is decidedly old school. He built underwater camera housings and strobes out of necessity… there were none in the mid-1950s that met his needs. He created the most popular underwater strobe of all time and nearly forty years later scores of photographers are still using the Oceanic 2001 series without a glitch. He designs equipment for divers and tests it on himself. And he’s spent more time on the infamous wreck of the Andrea Doria than any diver in history.

I met him back in the early 1970s when I took on the Oceanic line in my diving operation in the Virgin Islands. Bob was barely dry from saturating on the Andrea Doria in the most challenging exploration of the wreck ever attempted. His expedition stunned the industry and their adventures became the stuff of legend. He followed the first sat mission with another on an even larger scale in 1980 when he teamed up with Blue Water-White Death’s Peter Gimbel and penetrated the wreck’s interior to recover the First Class purser’s safe and other key artifacts.

1973. Hollis cutting through Andrea Doria hull to access purser’s safe while in saturation.

1965. Hollis with Hydro Strobes in two prototype housings.

He’s a throwback to another era when his peers have long since retired or passed away. There are none of the original manufacturing founders left running diving companies except him and Oceanic has continued to set new marks for cutting edge products. It might have something to do with the fact that he still dives when most companies are run by tight-assed accountants whose hair only gets wet in the shower. And he lives life with a passionate wild abandon that belies reaching his mid70s and still not missing a step. Bob is one of the great personalities of diving. Last to leave the party, first to explore the new dive site, and not afraid to step across the line into the wild side… with a deadpan sense of humor that catches a lot of folks off guard. In short, he’s my kind of guy and we’ve spent more than a few rollicking nights out on the edge of the envelope over the years.

He released the best selling professional camera housing of all time called the Hydro-35 in the early 1970s. In 1975 he introduced the Oceanic 2001 strobe and just about every underwater pro photographer embraced it as the most durable product ever built. The list of shooters included Chris Newbert, Howard & Michele Hall, Carl Roessler, Marty Snyderman, Paul Tzimoulis, Jack McKenney, Doug Faulkner, Dave Doublilet, Al Giddings, Geri Murphy, Phillipe Cousteau, and countless others who made a living counting on Hollis’s product in the field. The damn things were bulletproof. I even fended off a shark that bit one right off my camera housing metal arm and swam away with it. I recovered it six days later and it worked fine. I’ve still got it, teeth marks and all… and 22 more carefully hoarded in my equipment locker. No one ever built a better strobe.

1975. Hydro 35 for Canon and Nikon.

At a time when most men his age are already well into retirement, he still directs the overall operations of his multi-layered Oceanic company and continues the path of innovative product design and pushing the technology envelope a little farther down the beach…

As Oceanic celebrates its 40th birthday, it’s also fitting that Beneath The Sea has selected Hollis as its “Diving Pioneer” award recipient for 2012. No one deserves such a distinction more than Bob.

Oceanic: A Lesson In Corporate Expansion From a brand positioning standpoint – Oceanic’s tagline is “Innovation First.” Oceanic is the flagship and Hollis the venerable captain at the helm. Marketing centers around the products with strong imagery and an emphasis on technology and features that attract an informed consumer. While Bob focused his energies during the first twenty five years building the Oceanic brand and creating OEM manufacturing divisions to support his lofty R&D vision – the next fifteen saw a similar vertical integration strategy applied to a stable of sales and marketing companies that evolved as divisions of the parent corporation. Thus emerged the corporate entity known as American Underwater Products (AUP) as the umbrella to guide the various divisions that Hollis created to foster internal expansion and growth. Oceanic’s dominance in the dive computer field was fueled by Pelagic’s development and sale of digital products to US Divers (now Aqua-Lung). While it was not entirely uncommon to find Oceanic and US Divers in the same dive store, this strategy ultimately opened the market beyond Oceanic’s distribution reach. AERIS was founded in 1998 with the goal of providing a distinguished line of dive computers with a strategy to provide this unique product line to mostly non-Oceanic dealers. AERIS opened more than 400 dealers and jumped out to impressive first year sales Within three years, AERIS offered a complete instrument product line and was a significant force in the market place. With this new, independent dealer base, AERIS expanded the product line offering over the years… ultimately becoming a full line manufacturer offering a variety of regulators, BCs, masks, snorkels, fins, neoprene, and accessories. Hollis’s vision was to utilize common components and designs to achieve economies of scale, yet create unique differentiated products that do not conflict with the original Oceanic product line. The goal was to produce desirable consumer products leveraging his innovation, technology and manufacturing assets. This unique approach was to create a “company within a company” that would find an independent market and yet still be complimentary if found in the same store. In the years since the company’s 25th anniversary, the traditional sport dive market has generally been stagnant or in decline.

1973. Bob Hollis and fellow divers debreif after another Andrea Doria dive.

But Bob recognized the still growing market for technical diving interests and expanded again. Rather than begin to bring products for this segment into either Oceanic or AERIS with established reputations for serving the sport market, Bob formed Hollis Gear. The new division has seen significant growth year after year in spite of the current economic downturn. That segment is still growing and Hollis Gear has a leg up with the resources its sister companies bring to the table. Hollis Gear started with some back plates and wings before segueing into regulators and has just introduced an OLED trimix computer, reels, accessories, dry suits and undergarments, as well as canister and hand light models. Most recently a sidemount system was released and two new rebreathers are set for unveiling. Hollis Gear has quickly achieved a cult following – and has an “army” of fanatics all over the world.

2010. The OC1 - flagship airintegrated wristwatch computer with digital compass. Compatible with up to three nitrox mixes. Dot Matrix menu system enables intuitive userinterface and dual algorithm choices.

Not content to rest on his laurels, Hollis has just created a new product category with a new brand called Lavacore. This refers to a tri-laminate material that bridges between a wetsuit and a dive skin to better solve a diver’s thermal needs. Fleece lining traps

water for thermal protection equivalent to 2mm neoprene and a stretch inner membrane is windproof… yet breathes. This provides a perfect product for diving surface intervals or other surface watersports. Of course, this will provide a further opening for expansion into wider markets such as surfing, paddle sports, boating, and similar activities.

limited by conventional thinking. Oceanic has become a business “octopus” with many “tentacles” reaching out to each market segment to fuel astonishing growth. Not bad for a business that found its beginning in Hollis’s garage...

Ocean Pro began as a snorkeling line with attractive price points. It’s evolved this year offering a variety of other products as it seeks to throw an even wider net at consumer market share. ROMI Enterprises supplies precisionmachined components required for the production and final assembly of a wide variety of breathing systems marketed by AUP brands and others including the medical and industrial safety industries. The Oceanic brand has now attained a truly global footprint with a presence in more than 60 countries through a network of affiliate offices and distributors. Continued expansion is planned to capitalize on growing new markets and becoming the internationally dominant diving conglomerate. And to ensure an eventual “passing of the baton,” Hollis has involved his oldest son Mike in every aspect of overall company operations and specifically as COO of Pelagic. His twin sons Nick and Zach also play important roles as well. Nick is President of Hollis Gear while Zach is Operations Manager of ROMI. Daughter Debbie anchors important oversight in purchasing and materials planning. You can see that profiling the Oceanic company is not a simple matter. It’s a multifaceted corporate entity that has succeeded precisely because Hollis’s vision was not

CELEBRATING 40 YEARS

Bob Hollis and Oceanic celebrate 40 years. In His Own Words beyond Monterey and Carmel. We went there in a pickup with a camper and stayed at the bay of San Carlos. There was a small compressor to fill tanks and small boats for rent. For the trip I built a housing for my first 8mm movie camera.

2012. Bob Hollis (right) and son Mike Hollis (left) preparing for a cave dive.

In 2007, I was finishing up a massive coffee table book called Diving Pioneers & Innovators: An In-Depth Series of Interviews. Bob Hollis was one of 20 industry veterans selected for inclusion. We began the lengthy process of the interview and it spanned nearly three months. Here are some excerpts: Diving wasn’t a part of your youth. You didn’t get into the sport until you dropped out of college and moved to the Bay area around San Francisco. I was born in Chico, (northern) California. Later I lived in Orland, 20 miles west until I moved to the bay area in 1955. It was a small town of 3000 people with 400 students enrolled in high school. Growing up in a small town has merit, especially one that is close to creeks, rivers, and mountains. You learn about the outdoors, hunting, fishing and girls! During high school I came across Diving to Adventure by Hans Hass. The memories remained with me and one evening in the early part of 1956 I was reading Popular Mechanics and came across an article on how to build an underwater scooter. I was intrigued by the design and the thought of using a vehicle underwater. A couple of weeks later I was reading the “for sale” section in the newspaper and there was an ad selling a two-hose regulator, twin tanks and other equipment. I called this guy, set up a time to see the equipment. As it turned out, he had bought the equipment and never used it. It was a Healthways two-hose regulator, converted 38-cubic foot military cylinders with bushings to accept tank valves. So I bought the equipment. In the fall of 1956, a couple of friends and I drove to Guaymas, Mexico and dove in the Sea of Cortez. It was my first dive trip

We jumped off the boat and I was in the clearest water that I had ever experienced. And there were lots of fish. I saw my first Yellowtail. We made many free dives that day, to depths up to 70 feet, and I speared three nice fish. After that I made dives with my new 8mm camera in its housing. This was a decision-making day… I thought then about being professionally involved in diving. When did your interest in underwater photography take hold? After my first dive I started reading any book or magazine on diving. Hans Hass’s books continued to be the inspiration for underwater photography, adventure, and he steered us to develop rebreathers. I thought about taking pictures of the adventures, the animal life I was seeing to share with others. Everyone wanted to hear the stories but I wanted to show them what I was seeing. Considering the primitive u/w systems available then, how long did it take to realise that you were going to have to build a lot of the equipment yourself? The early issues of Skindiver magazine had articles about building housings for cameras. I started to learn about o-rings, and how to work with Plexiglas. In the early part of 1956 I began working for Standard Oil. Their facilities were huge and had tools allowing you to build anything. Personal projects were called “government jobs”. During the nine years I worked at Standard Oil, I had

11

a continuing stream of “government jobs” building underwater photographic and diving equipment. That’s where it all started. How did the early designs you tried out work? There were many trips back to the Sea of Cortez and I continued to spear fish, but my focus was on exploring and taking pictures. In 1958 we housed the first commercially available electronic strobe lights. Developing connectors for strobes was far more difficult than connectors for flash bulbs. We used Amphenol connectors and filled them with grease. Divers that were interested started asking where they could buy camera housings and flash units. A diving buddy, Helmut Stellrecht, was excellent at building housings. I began to take on work building housings or other pieces of equipment. My “government jobs” at Standard Oil were increasing. Its funny how word spreads. I started getting calls from people that I never met asking me if I would build this housing or that. You finally got into the retail dive store business in the mid-1960s In the latter part of 1964 I made the decision to open a dive store and surf shop, the Anchor Shack. I had done a little surfing and thought this would be a nice addition to diving equipment. My partner was Ray Collins, a neighbor who was a non-diver at that time, but a great guy. We rented a building in Hayward, designed the interior, and opened in March of 1965. I set up a small machine shop in the back end of the store to maintain the production of custom built photographic equipment. The dollar volume on custom photo work was sufficient enough to cover the overhead and pay us a meager salary until the retail store developed a clientele. I developed a metal housing for the Honeywell strobe lights in 1967. The Hydro Strobe was an immediate success. I put advertising in Skindiver magazine to

promote the stuff. With articles by editor Paul Tzimoulis, more interest was generated and established a growing market for our product line. I continued to expand and built our travel department. We were selling three trips a year by the end of 1968. In 1969 we opened our second location in Concord. Another product we introduced that evolved over time was the ball joint arm to connect strobes, flash bulb units and movie lights to all types of camera housings. We started building metal housings for the Kodak K-100 16mm camera; this was the most popular system for several years. How did Oceanic Products come about? By 1971 the camera product line was taking most of my time. Ray decided to leave the business and I hired a manager to run the retail operation. There was good growth in diving during the early 1970s. I was running out of room in the machine shop and was eager to expand the manufacturing division. I decided to spin it off and form a new company. In 1972 the product range became known as Oceanic. You produced the iconic Hydro 35 aluminum housing for Nikon and Canon cameras that became the best-selling housing of its era. I started the engineering for the Hydro 35 in 1971. Nikon and Cannon were the primary choices because of the large viewing systems and their selection of lens. This product coupled with the Hydro Strobe and various connectors kept us moving forward. We added housings for popular super 8 format cameras, movie lights & housings for 16mm cameras. A significant portion of the line was accessories for the popular Nikonos cameras.

American Underwater Products’ worldwide headquarters in San Leandro, California, is a 120,000 square foot building that houses one of the most innovative and technologically advanced life support equipment manufacturing facilities in the world.

Meanwhile, Oceanic was growing. When did the company become a full line manufacturer? We definitely had growing pains. We were behind in deliveries and the business was not generating the projected cash flow. A fire in 1974 destroyed Oceanic. We picked up our pieces an moved to a temporary location while our building was rebuilt. We learned years later that an arsonist set fire to the building. I started making long road trips, traveled through every one of the 48 states except North Dakota. I made sales calls to every retailer that would take the time to look at the product line. I knew that I needed to do something fast, my cash reserves were running low. So I sold my interest in the Anchor Shack stores and then embarked on a product design using injection tooling. My objective was to design a tool that would allow me to use the parts for a number of products. By mid 1975 we introduced the Ocean Pro lights and they became the best selling diving hand lights in the country. I entered into an agreement with Scubapro to produce the light on an OEM basis for them in Europe. My next focus was to design the electronics for a new strobe light. The same parts used for the light were used to produce the new strobe product line, the 2001 and 2003 strobes. The strobes coupled with ball joint arms were an instant success. We focused on niche products such as the photographic line, then lights, and began moving into electronics. Most of the larger companies were not selling products that we were designing so this allowed us to begin developing a brand and a customer base. The diving industry had its greatest growth from 1975 to 1990. We were a small

company, profitable, and with a staff of people who wanted to expand. The bulk of the customers for our products were divers that came to a retail store and asked for the products; the store would order them, sell to the customer and keep a nice profit. But dive stores in general did not promote and inventory underwater photographic equipment. We decided that future growth would require us to have a core product line. At some point, you took over your friend Ralph Shamlian’s company Farallon. How did that come about? I met Ralph when we were producing the Anchor Shack products and we developed a life long friendship. Ralph, a brilliant inventor, attracted the eyes and pocket books of investors to fund his new company Farallon Industries in 1971. Farallon became the buzzword in diving, introducing new products at a rapid pace. Innovation has its rewards but the downside is the continuing requirement for money. You can only go to the well so many times. By late 1975 Ralph was on the outs with his investors. Within a few months we learned that Norm Moore, the new CEO and largest investor, was negotiating to sell the product line to Scubapro. You can learn a lot by going through trash! We were diving into the Farallon dumpsters at night. Getting access to their current financial info and other correspondence provided us apicture of what Farallon was all about. I entered into discussions with Norm. He thought I was interested in buying the tooling for a movie light. This allowed me to begin discussions about his pending offer

and that exhibitors could not market nitrox training at the DEMA show. That was just plain stupid. It was a knee-jerk reaction reflecting their lack of knowledge on the topic. And the storm of protest that followed led to a swift decision to rescind that policy. The show went forward with nitrox vendors from all sectors. Oceanic was one of the first companies to acknowledge that their products could be used with nitrox mixtures to 40% 02.

and to begin influencing him that we might be a better fit. Four weeks later I bought the whole company. I was in the office when he told Scubapro the deal was off. They were pissed! Especially when he told them it was me. The new company was known as Farallon-Oceanic until 1980 when we dropped the name Farallon and carried on with the name Oceanic. Oceanic continued to expand. What came next? I thought we would be better served if we could engineer, design, and manufacture the analog movements. I hired an employee away from one of the suppliers and put one of our engineers on the project.

1994. Under NASA contract, the DataTran computer was the firstto use alpha-numeric display and menu system with two-button controls and fie language options.

My son, Mike, a commercial diver for Taylor in the North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, agreed to come home and work in the company. Mike had learned a lot in the three years he was employed by Taylor. I asked him to be a part of the new instrumentation program we formed called Pelagic Pressure Systems. Pelagic became an OEM supplier of products to Oceanic, our sister company AERIS, and a number of dive companies in the world. Pelagic manufacturers OEM products for the industrial life support markets as well as aircraft instrumentation. Mike is the president of Pelagic.

the way for our first commercial dive computer.

In 1979 we also moved Farallon-Oceanic back to San Leandro. Our machining division was getting larger and the customer base was growing. We formed another company in 1981, ROMI Enterprises. Today ROMI machines and produces the regulator lines for Oceanic, AERIS and other companies.

The product was delivered to NASA in 1987 and this became a commercial product the following year. Pelagic has continued to develop dive computer technology and is an OEM supplier to a number of companies. Oceanic and AERIS have a secure position in instrumentation and computers worldwide.

You were also involved with one of the first dive computers. One of the products that Farallon developed was an early dive computer. I finally determined that the future dive computer needed to be an electronic product and not the type we were engineering. In 1979 I entered into an agreement with John Lewis, a physicist. John was a diver and had developed an algorithm for a dive computer. We began a development program to test the algorithm and, in parallel, to develop the electronics. We had our first operational dive computer at the end of 1979. We continued to test the unit and made a presentation to US Divers in early 1980. They were impressed and this led to an agreement for Pelagic to be the OEM supplier of instrumentation beginning in 1984. Pelagic produced all US Divers instruments and computers through 1995. We first introduced the Data Max gauge, a depth gauge with a bottom timer. This instrument gained in popularity and paved

We were the first company to have an airintegrated computer that provided remaining air time as well as no-decompression and deco information. This product was introduced in 1984. We entered into an agreement with Johnson Engineering, one of the companies associated with NASA. The project was to develop a stand-alone dive computer that could receive pressure information from a transmitter attached to the regulator.

In 1994 we bought our current building on Davis Street in San Leandro. This 120,000-square-foot building houses the current operation. One thing that separates us from most dive manufacturing companies is the fact that we manufacture the product from raw materials to the finished product. Some of our manufacturing is now offshore in our own plants located in China and Taiwan. Nitrox and dive computers became hotly debated topics in the same period. What were your opinions then about these innovations? We were a forerunner in the development of electronic dive computers, building our first unit in 1979. Properly used, a dive computer today provides all divers extended time and more freedom underwater. The electronic dive computer is one of the great inventions for diving. Nitrox came into full view in 1995 when DEMA put out a notice that they were not going to allow the term nitrox to be used

In many ways, the arch-conservatives of diving’s old school seemed absolutely dead-set against just about every innovation that came along from BCs to single hose regulators to submersible pressure gauges. And this was way back in the late 1960s. How did you fit into that group considering your engineering interest and desire to expand the sport? I didn’t share those perspectives. My focus is and has been to make diving safer and more enjoyable. Our tag line is innovation. Small and lighter products, easier breathing regulators, dive computers built into the mask. We were one of the first companies to announce and have a commercial rebreather at the DEMA show. This was 1995. I love to explore; I always want to swim deeper and stay longer. To satisfy that desire requires innovation and lots of engineering. You’re 75 years young. Any thoughts of retiring? My twin sons are also now in the business and I’m having fun watching them grow into normal adults. So, no, I’m not ready to retire yet… I get the biggest rush out of taking an idea, developing it, and then bringing it to market. When I was growing up I was always looking for ways to make things better. That’s still what we’re striving to do today.”

Heron AIsland destination

like no other.

Heron Island is a true coral cay, located right on the Great Barrier Reef. A place of stunning natural beauty, it has sugar-white sands, crystal clear waters and acres of brilliant coral with colourful marine life. In fact nearly 75% of all coral reef species can be found in the waters around this beautiful Island. At this World-Heritage listed marine national park, all flora and fauna is protected, so the Island is a nature lover’s paradise.

HERON ISLAND

After the two hour sea crossing from Gladstone on the luxury “Heron Islander” launch – or the spectacular helicopter trip from the mainland, you’re first struck by the Island’s prolific tree-life. The thick stands of Pisonias – which actually make up about 70% of the Reef’s Pisonia forest - and the feathery fine She-oaks dominate the 18-hectare coral cay to such an extent that you might find yourself wondering if there’s a resort on the Island at all. Before you encounter any Heron Island staff, you’re more likely to meet a Buff-banded Rail – possibly warming itself on the sandy path at your feet – or a Noddy Tern hovering a metre from your face. There are thousands of birds on this island as for all but a few months of the year the Island is a critically important breeding and nesting sanctuary for a variety of birds primarily the handsome Terns and the Wedge-Tailed Shearwaters. This is their home and they are your ever present neighbours as long as you are visiting the Island. Of course, plenty of guests visit Heron to relax, but beyond the pool and the sun lounges, there’s a hectic biological schedule of migrating, breeding, nesting and hatching going on – some of it in the air but most of it in the pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef that lap the Island.

17

From November to the end of March, two vulnerable turtle species – the Green and Loggerhead turtles visit the Island to lay their eggs - approximately three to seven times during a season. The turtles lay their eggs in the area where they were born, laying on average 120 eggs in one clutch. Hatchlings appear a month after the egg is laid and scramble desperately to relative safety of the water’s edge. As early as Christmas each year, Heron Island offers the captivating opportunity to see one of life’s natural wonders up close, the hatching of the early nests. By Easter, thousands of baby turtles will have emerged to make the annual scurry to the safety of the sea. With careful guidelines in place to protect these ancient mariners, fortunate guests can observe the action on a casual walk around the island’s beaches. Turtles migrate to Heron Island from as far afield as the Solomon Islands, Cape York and Harvey Bay, returning 35 to 40 years after their birth here. Green turtles are the most common turtles around the island and are characterised by a high, domed shell and a smaller jaw than Loggerhead turtles.


18

HERON ISLAND

The Loggerheads have large jaws used for crushing the shells of crustaceans and molluscs and their shell is less domed in shape. Loggerheads only make up around 1%-2% of the breeding population on Heron Island. Heron Island has recently initiated a partnership with the Sea Turtle Foundation to raise money to help protect these ancient mariners for future generations. From June through October, Humpback whale sightings and breechings are common as their migration heads north, then south again with their calves in tow. Scuba diving and snorkelling are favourite guest pastimes with the reef lying just metres off the Island’s beaches. It is in fact an internationally acclaimed diving destination with renowned diver, Jacques Cousteau naming the Heron Bommie as one of his top 10 favourite dive sites in the world. There are over 20 dive and/or snorkelling sites off Heron Island, more than half of which are within 15 minutes cruise from the wharf. The Heron Bommie, one of the most photographed dive sites in Australia, is naturally popular but certainly not alone when it comes to spectacular underwater action. It is home to schooling Jacks, Barracuda, Hussars, Moray Eels, turtles, Eagle and Manta rays, to name a few – just two minutes from the wharf. The Coral Grotto is a magnet for sleeping, swimming and feeding turtles; the Hole in the Wall is acclaimed for Maori Wrasse, sharks and Manta rays; Tenements 1 for a huge Blue-footed Anemone and a family of 30 Clown-fish (Nemo’s cousins); Plate Ledge is a favourite of divers seeking impressive Table-top, or Plate coral formations; Pam’s Point for its resident Blue Groper and huge Manta rays; Gorgonia Hole features Fan and Gorgonia corals on the reef edge; Coral Gardens and Staghorn Banks are home to Staghorn and Branching corals; and the Lost Mooring boasts an incredible kaleidoscope of bait fish, Painted crays, Nudibranchs and Wobbegong sharks, together with elaborate coral formations. All of these sites, plus more, offer year-round access to the Great Barrier Reef and its residents. When not in the water, other guest activities include bushwalking, reef walking, rides in our semisubmersible to view the coral, spa treatments at the Aqua Soul Spa and a Junior Rangers environmental program for our younger guests which runs during school holidays.

But it’s what you don’t see around Heron that makes the resort so special. Although the Island comprises 109 rooms across five distinct accommodation styles you won’t see any buildings above the tree line and you won’t bump into any day-trippers. The Reef experience on Heron is exclusively for guests, a unique experience few other resorts in the world can offer. Heron Island enjoys a tropical climate, with an average year-round temperature of approximately 27 degrees Celsius. Its’ location at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef diminishes the influence of traditional wet season weather conditions associated with islands further north. Regular flights are available from all Australian capital cities to Heron Island via Gladstone. Australian Helicopters depart Gladstone airport daily during daylight hours. The launch service departs Gladstone Marina for the island once a day. Guests can also choose to spend time on nearby Wilson Island – a short 20 minute boat trip from Heron Island. Wilson Island has just six luxury tents (max 12 guests) set beside the sea on this tiny tropical islet. The ultimate in Australian castaway islands, a visit to Wilson Island allows couples to switch off their mobile phones making for blissfully quiet holidays where you can enjoy world-class snorkelling, lazing in a hammock and re-discovering your inner Robinson Crusoe. Explore the tiny island on foot or check out the creatures of the sea from a glass-bottom kayak, or with some world-class snorkelling. Guests can also watch Green and Loggerhead turtles laying their eggs or hatchlings emerging from this very special Australian destination as well.

Sidemount Diving has come quite a long way since the early pioneers used homemade sidemount diving rigs to access and explore some of the numerous caves systems around the world. Sidemount Diving is now a recreational reality and is not just for cave divers anymore. It has become increasingly more common worldwide to see recreational divers, tec divers, wreck divers, ice divers, as well as cave divers, using sidemount systems instead of a traditional backmounted system.

The Evolution of Sidemount Diving Continues. by Jeff Loflin

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the sidemount gear configuration, it is simply moving your backmounted gas cylinders to the side of your body. The basic safety advantages of having your cylinders mounted on the side is that all of the gauges, hoses and leak points are always in the divers view. The diver is not dependent on his/her buddy to do bubble checks and perform detective guesswork to discover equipment malfunctions or problems. Sidemount rigs can accommodate either single or double cylinders . When diving with two cylinders there is an additional safety feature because the diver has a totally redundant life support system- one life support system complete with regulator and gas supply on the left side and another complete life support system with regulator and gas supply on the right side. In the event the diver has an abrupt termination of gas in one cylinder he has the option to use the other cylinder or ascend to the surface.
 Sidemount diving has exploded into a dive industry phenomena that continues to expand opportunities for divers and dive businesses worldwide. When I started sidemount diving, there was only one manufacturer distributing sidemount equipment in addition to the homemade rigs utilized by cave divers for decades. There are currently no less than nine manufacturers marketing sidemount equipment today.
 The days of learning how to sidemount dive by asking your friend to teach you are virtually over as a large number of the major agencies have released sidemount certification courses. PADI, for instance, has recently introduced two such courses: Recreational Sidemount and Technical Sidemount.
 Hollis SMS100 has a super low profile - go places others can’t.

Learning to sidemount dive is a fun and exciting new scuba adventure for any level of diver. The advantages of enrolling in a Sidemount Diving course from a professional are many and quite varied- allowing you to learn the proper gear configuration, helping to adjust your new equipment for a perfect fit to facilitate spot-on trim, and teach you a variety of diving techniques used when diving sidemount.
 The innovative Hollis sidemount systems include the Sidemount System 100 (SMS100), the dual bladder Sidemount System 100 (SMS 100D), and the new SMS 50 Sidemount system. The SMS 100 and SMS 100D were designed with both the recreational and technical diver in mind. The SMS 50, weighing a scant four pounds, was designed for the recreational diver and shallow water cave diver. The SMS 100 or SMS 100 D were designed to be used for recreational and/or technical diving. In the event the recreational diver would like to continue into technical diving, the Hollis sidemount buoyancy compensator system used for recreational diving can be also be used for technical diving. The lightweight SMS 50 recreational sidemount rig allows you to travel worldwide within the confines of airline weigh limit restrictions. Do not wait any longer to try sidemount diving! I am sure that whatever level of diver you may be, you will love diving sidemount and end up a sidemount diver whom agrees with the saying “once you go side, you never go back!”

SIDEMOUNT DIVING


Melbourne Words:Down Under Sheree Marris When people think of colourful marine environments, their thoughts automatically turn to the tropical reefs. A new campaign supported by Oceanic Australia however is about to turn that notion on its fins….

Melbourne Down Under (MDU) is an innovative marine awareness campaign for the Port Phillip (PP) region, that is revealing Melbourne’s best kept secret - a marine environment with colour and diversity that rivals tropical reefs, showcased to an audience of millions across several high profile media platforms. Here in the cooler southern shores you’ll find the exotic and the magical, the beautiful and the deadly, the majestic and mysterious. And of course the downright weird. It features towering kelp forests, shimmering sandy plains and rocky reefs that explode in a kaleidoscope of colours. It’s a bustling metropolis home to over 1300 plant and animal species, over 82% of which are found nowhere else on earth but here along the southern shores.

Out of this world! A Nudibranch displays its amazing colours.

Plants that walk, animals that bloom. Creatures that breathe through their backs and those that light up like a starry night. Fish that fish for other fish, fathers than give birth to their young ad creatures that look like anything, other than what they are. All this right on Melbourne’s front door step. It’s a surprising secret that few know…. until now. This unique distinctiveness has be captured for the first time through a library of underwater imagery using world-class photographers and cinematographers featured in a series of high profile formats including a flagship book, documentary/ DVD, footage at Federation Square and a free outdoor community exhibition that will travel throughout the catchment. It has already reached an audience of over 3 million people and the number continues to rise. All campaign elements have been rolled out excluding the documentary/DVD which is currently being filmed and scripted and will be launched at Federation Square in February 2013 during a week long marine celebration that will see the site turn into a virtual bay. The challenge with Port Phillip Bay is that it is difficult to get people

to care about an environment they can’t see and they don’t know exists. By using the various media platforms, stunning imagery and engaging communications we can create a new level of awareness around its unique marine values while building a marine stewardship ethic in the community. It will also provide a valuable platform to begin conversations around our actions on land and the impacts that it has on these precious and unique environments. From an economic and tourism perspective it will help local business and position the area as a world class marine asset. But it doesn’t end there, Melbourne Down Under is structured so that a percentage of the profits generated from book and DVD sales will be redirected back into local communities to see fund marine engagement experiences that will encourage active participation and grow the tourism interest. Along with Oceanic you can support this great initiative by purchasing the book or documentary knowing that you’re helping to raise awareness and create a series of long term marine legacies. It is a win-win for the environment and for marine

enthusiasts or anyone who wants an entertaining read about the marine environment. THE AUTHOR & ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Photography Fundamentals With Rick Hankinson You’re thinking about doing some underwater photography, but not sure where to start? Or, have you recently bought a camera and can’t figure out why your photos are coming out dark and blurry? Lets get a few things straight, you don’t need to spend thousands on photography equipment that looks like you’re off to shoot another National Geographic cover - like some of the people I’ve seen on dive boats. Memorise these few simple tips and I guarantee you’ll be taking photos that will make your mother-in-law proud.


PHOTOGRAPHY FUNDAMENTALS

1. Know your equipment. ·· To get great shots you need to know what your camera can & can’t do, the best place to start with this is your cameras instruction manual. ·· Now with the help of the internet there are many free tutorials which are accessible to the general public giving you step by step advice. ·· One of the benefits about digital photography is that you can view your shot as you take it & modify your settings to improve the images you are getting. ·· Don’t forget that you can practice on land prior to going for a dive find an object around your home then spend a bit of time trying different settings, & lighting techniques.

2. Get close to your subject. ·· The more space you have between you & your subject there is a greater chance of scatter caused from particle in the water as well as a loss of colour due to inadequate lighting. Images taken from too far away often appear grainy or very blue. ·· I like to choose a focal point such as the subjects’ eye for that captivating shot.

3. Be a Natural. ·· By improving your diving skills & being familiar with your diving equipment will help you to gain confidence & become more comfortable in the water. This in turn will allow you to get closer to your subject without frightening it away. ·· Take time with your subject to compose your shot, watch for movements & behaviour patterns, breathe calmly & remember you don’t just want to take a photo but capture a moment.

4. Get to know your subject. ·· Often the hardest part of photography is finding the subject in the first place; field guides & again the internet will help you with your studies. ·· By doing a bit of research on the creatures you’re interested in you can find out things like what they eat, where they are likely to be found such as warm or temperate waters or even are they day or night creatures. ·· Wherever possible utilise local knowledge, ask the guides at the local dive centre, they are out there all of the time & can often add a wealth of information as to the behaviour & habitat of species in the area.

PHOTOGRAPHY FUNDERMENTALS

5. Make the most of your lighting. ·· As any professional photographer will tell you if you don’t have adequate lighting you’re almost certainly not going to get the results you are looking for. ·· With that said there are many ways to get great shots without those big expensive strobes. One of my favourites is to position myself bellow the subject & to use natural lighting, this works great for animals such as turtles, manta rays & pelagic fish. ·· In more shallow waters & particularly whilst snorkelling the sun can provide all the lighting requirements that you need to get those amazing shots.

6. Have fun with it. ·· Don’t be limited in taking your photos; try something different who knows sometimes that quirky angle makes for an interesting photo. ·· Formations such as coral overhangs or Gorgonian fans can make great backdrops for portraits. ·· Get at eye level with a Shrimp or Nudibranch, or in amongst a school of Jacks, using the sun to create a silhouette or even using your dive buddy to add scale to a photo. All of these things can create some amazing effects again the beauty of digital is that you can take many photos to get the one you want.

7. Post production. ·· When viewing your photos see what settings you have used & whether you found them effective, it will also help to build on your understanding of the cameras potential. ·· Once you start storing your photos it is important to catalogue your images for easy retrieval in the future. ·· Back your photos up so that if you were to experience any software malfunctions that you won’t lose that memorable shot. ·· In editing your photos again try something different like black & white for that dramatic effect. ·· Lastly get your photos out there to be appreciated whether it is a photo competition or social media sites, you will be surprised at the positive feedback that you will receive.

30 BUOYANCY COMPENSATORS

BCDs All Oceanic, Aeris and Hollis Hardware, comprising Regulators, Octopus Regulators (Octo’s), Buoyancy Compensators (BC’s), Wings, and Analogue Gauges, when purchased and registered from an Authorised Australian Dealer, can have their warranty upgraded to a Limited Lifetime Warranty (LLW). This LLW will cover against any defects in materials, workmanship and performance to product specifications for the life of the product. Digital Instrumentation is provided with a 5 year Limited Warranty. Conditions apply.

Exterior abrasion points of select BCs are covered in our “Fadeless” Cordura® tough stuff that will hold up to years of extreme diving and keep that “new look” longer. Most external panels benefit from the toughness of Cordura®, a highperformance, super-durable fabric that is perfect for the demands divers place on their equipment. It’s resistant to abrasions, tears, and scuffs--all the qualities you expect from a high performance fabric.

Hybrid Bladder

The innovative design of the hybrid bladder allows the freedom of movement and other benefits you have come to expect from a rear-inflation BC. The unique wrap-around design of the air cell provides you more lift than most BC’s; as well as an improved, upright orientation when the BC is inflated on the surface. B F

BioFlex® Technology

Your equipment should enhance, not hinder the joy and exhilaration of diving. Nowhere is this more important than with BC’s, where comfort and freedom of movement must be balanced against function and durability. Responding to this challenge led Oceanic design engineers to create BioFlex a unique “living fabric” that stretches, flexes and conforms to the body. BioFlex is an extraordinary fabric, which, when fully inflated, stretches up to 30% over conventional nylon or polyurethane BC materials. The idea is that if a material could stretch while remaining airtight, you could make smaller air cells, creating less bulk and drag underwater while achieving high volumes of lift when required. BioFlex eliminates chest squeeze, conforms to the diver’s body and provides a slim, body hugging profile.

Patented Quick Lock Release Weight Integration System Patented QLR Quick Lock & Release System ensures your weights stay in position throughout the dive and do not shift around affecting buoyancy or position in the water. The weight pouches are simple to load and easy to release. Best of all, our patented “positive-lock” system helps to ensure that they’ll stay put.

D Rings

Welded and slightly bent for easy, one-handed attachment. Use these D-rings to attach accessories such as torches, cameras or even your octopus regulator.

Integrated Retractor System

Built-in retractor attachment point perfect for streamlining gauges, lights and other essentials.

Knife Mounting Grommets

A pair of stainless steel grommets keep our BC knives out of the way but just where you want it.

Custom Fit Harness

Patented Custom Fit Harness, with its multiposition shoulder straps and cummerbund, delivers individual comfort for people of all shapes and sizes.

Fadeless 1000 Denier Cordura® Construction

Exterior abrasion points are covered in our new “Fadeless” 1000-denier Cordura - tough stuff that will hold up to years of extreme diving and keep that new look longer.

Reliant Integrated Inflator

Ergonomically designed to be functional and easy to use in any dive position, the Reliant Integrated Inflator provides a full range of airway exhaust and inflation control. Simply press a button to produce precise flow for trimming or maximum flow for major changes in buoyancy. A large exhaust valve creates a flow rate higher than the inflation rate of the power inflator, improving diver control during ascents.

Depth Compensating Cummerbund

Patented depth compensating cummerbund is manufactured from a unique woven elastic material that eliminates the need to readjust as your suit compresses at depth. Cummerbund offers up to 8” of adjustment to fit a wide range of sizes. For additional personal adjustment, the cummerbund may be easily changed with another size.

Optional Air XS 2 Upgrade

The AIR XS combines the reliability, performance and durability of the Second Air OCTOPUS and RELIANT INFLATOR into one very low profile, streamlined package. The regulator/inflator combination is as small as many BC inflators alone, with breathing performance superior to many stand-alone octopus regulators.


The Patented QLR Quick Lock & Release System is standard on many of the BCs. Your weights stay in position throughout the dive and do not shift around affecting buoyancy or position in the water. The weight pouches are simple to load and easy to release. Best of all, our patented “positive-lock” system helps to ensure that they’ll stay put.

“I have been nothing but impressed by the Oceanic Excursion 2 BCD. The new more flexible weight pockets offer peace of mind and are easy to put in place. The abundance of D Rings along with the great overall trim it provides me while underwater allows me to feel comfortable in all aspects of my diving. Having had the Excursion 1, I have seen vast improvements to comfort and functionality. The introduction of utility pockets and the overall reduction in weight has made my Oceanic Excursion 2 upgrade one of the best equipment decisions I have made.” Peter Useli

BCDs Your equipment should enhance, not hinder the joy and exhilaration of diving. Nowhere is this more important than with BC’s, where comfort and freedom of movement must be balanced against function and durability. Responding to this challenge led our design engineers to create BioFlex® - a unique “living fabric” that stretches, flexes and conforms to the body. BioFlex® is an extraordinary fabric, which stretches, fully inflated up to 30% over conventional nylon or polyurethane BC materials.

“The Hera BCD is the most comfortable and practical BCD for using not only recreationally but while I’m teaching as well. The large lift capacity means I don’t have to be worried about buoyancy while I’m looking after students, and the angled pockets are easy to access during dives. The BCD isn’t bulky at all, I have freedom and comfort while I dive and teach alike. I would recommend that all female divers should be in a Hera. I haven’t found anything else that even comes close to measuring up in either comfort or practicality.” Sharon Fitzpatrick

PADI Staff Instructor TDI Advanced Nitrox Decomposition Instructor

The idea being that if a material could stretch while remaining airtight, you could make smaller air cells, creating less bulk and drag underwater while achieving high volumes of lift when required. BioFlex® eliminates chest squeeze, conforms to the diver’s body and provides a slim, body hugging profile.

HERA The Oceanic HERA BC is built from the ground up for you - designed specifically around the female form with ample adjustments to make it your own, without sacrificing features and functionality. This may just be the most comfortable, best fitting BC you’ve ever worn. • Patented hybrid bladder combines the benefits of both rear inflation and jacket style BCs. • Patented Custom Fit Harness with multi-position shoulder strap that delivers individual comfort for women of all sizes. The Oceanic Hera BC is contoured over the hip for added comfort. • QLR Integrated Weight System accommodates up to 20 lbs. plus dual 5 lbs. rear weight pouches for improved in-water positioning. • Weight pockets are loaded positioned at a slight downward angle to aid self-loading. • Reinforced shoulders, padded back pack and an adjustable position sternum strap ensure comfort and stability.

Sidemounts

Some advantages of Sidemount Diving • Full visibility over your system tanks, valves, regulators all within eyesight and adjustable at depth • Reduces additional gear: Doubles bands / Hardware / Manifold Benefit when traveling • Aids in transporting gear to and from the beach or boat - one tank at a time • Streamlines profile which in turn reduces drag increasing your bottom time

“My purchase of Hollis SMS 50 has been an excellent investment , simply put I love it! The slimline design has been great for getting into those tight spots and was an asset when wreck diving in Truk Lagoon. As its light and compact I have found it perfect for travel and was easily able to manage 3 tanks with no wetsuit. I am so happy with the design that I will be utilizing the SMS 50 as my recreational as well at Technicaldiving BCD.” Gary Brennand

REGULATORS

Regulators

A simple twist of the adjustment knob enables complete control. Set the inhalation requirement to near zero when you need ultimate performance, or tune it for greater resistance as conditions or preferences change. Most downstream demand valve regulators are calibrated during manufacturing to a single, ‘middle of the road’ operation. Whether finning up current at 20 metres or merely snorkeling out to the dive site, this factory adjustment may not be optimum for the wide variety of demands we place on our equipment.

The pneumatically balanced second stage reduces breathing resistance to near zero with a balanced valve seat designed to respond to the slightest inhalation. A pneumatically balanced second stage actually has (or can have) the same initial crack opening effort as a mechanically balanced, but the spring force of a pneumatically balanced second stage is lighter so it’s spring rate is also lower.

Dry Valve Technology D.V.T

Diver Adjustable Inhalation

Pneumatically BalanceD Second Stage

Adjustable Venturi System

Ever wonder why they call it a “dust cap” and not a water cap? DVT eliminates the possibility of moisture entering the first stage with a simple, yet ingenious design. No hassle, no worries. What about performance? DVT doesn’t impact first stage performance even at 40 metres with just 100 bar in your tank. The result? An end to flooded regulators! DVT is designed to automatically eliminate moisture intrusion and contaminants from entering your breathing system.

A pneumatically balanced second stage actually has (or can have) the same initial crack opening effort as a mechanically balanced second stage, but the spring force of a pneumatically balanced second stage is lighter so it’s spring rate is also lower. Therefore the force required to open the valve farther as flow increases is less than that required for a mechanically balanced second stage with a higher rate spring. So the total effort to breathe the pneumatically balanced second stage is indeed less. The spring force must be just enough to overcome the difference between downstream air pressure and upstream balance chamber pressure. The downstream air travels through a hole in the poppet into the balance chamber and applies an “upstream” force just slightly less than the downstream force.

Stainless Inline Swivel

This unique feature of the swivel provides ultimate comfort and flexibility. How you choose to mount your regulator, whether that’s over or under your shoulder, or even upside-down, the swivel system performs as well as it looks.

Nitrox Compatible

This feature enables the regulator to be suitable for use with nitrox breathing gas mixtures containing up to 40% oxygen without the need for special preparation, cleaning or components.

Most downstream demand valve regulators are calibrated during manufacturing to a single, ‘middle of the road’ operation. Whether finning up current or merely snorkelling out to the dive site, this factory adjustment may not be optimum for the wide variety of demands we place on our equipment. A simple twist of the adjustment knob enables complete control...set the inhalation requirement to near zero when you need ultimate performance, or tune it for greater resistance as conditions or preferences change. The A.V.S. deflector diverts the airflow from the valve directly to the mouthpiece, producing smooth venturi-assisted inhalation. With the addition of a user Adjustable Venturi System (A.V.S.), in the form of a simple yet ingenious switch, full adjustment control rests in the hands of the diver.

Orthodontic Mouthpiece

Our patented Orthodontic Mouthpiece further reduces jaw fatigue, and is specifically designed to accommodate the natural overbite of the human jaw.

Surge Deflector

Our surge deflector reduces freeflow caused by surge or oncoming current.

Patented Dynamic Adjustment

A common objection to adjustable second stages is that divers can’t imagine themselves twisting and turning a knob as they descend and ascend through the depths. If inhalation resistance is set near zero at depth, your ascent would require you to manually increase resistance as ambient water pressure is reduced to prevent free-flow. Taking another stride beyond common second stage engineering, Oceanic designed a patented DYNAMIC ADJUSTMENT feature with a mechanically balanced valve that maintains a preferred breathing resistance throughout the dive. Set it once and it automatically adjusts to make breathing as easy at 30 metres as it is at 5 metres - with no additional manual adjustment.


REGULATORS “Through my career in the dive industry spanning 40 years, I’ve used and serviced just about every brand of regulator on the market. I have to say that my Oceanic EOS would have to be the most reliable /easy breathing and value for money regulator that I’ve come across. The swivel on the EOS eliminates jaw fatigue and is so comfortable as there is no pulling on the reg hose as you turn your head.”

REBREATHERS

Rebreathers

How it works The Prism 2 gains gas efficiency by circulating breathing gas in a breathing loop, unlike an open circuit SCUBA system that dumps the exhaled gas with each breath. The Prism 2 maintains safe oxygen levels, removes CO2 from the breathing loop, and delivers warm breathing gas to the diver. The Prism 2 accomplishes this through the following breathing loop cycle: 1. The Oxygen and Diluent (air, trimix or heliox) tanks provide the source gas. 2. Exhaled gas enters the breathing loop, and a one-way valve inside the Dive Shutoff Valve (DSV) directs the breath to the righ side counterlung. 3. The right side counterlung is the location of the manual oxygen addition valve and system over pressure relief valve. 4. The exhales gas then enters the scrubber cannister where the carbon dioxide is removed. 5. Gas leaving the scrubber passes the three (3) O2 sensors which analyze the breathing mix, and the Prism 2 electronics add oxygen as required. 6. The breathing gas passes through the left side counterlung where the manual diluent addition valve is located, and maintained gas volume is available for breathing. 7. Gas leaving the left counterlung travels again through a one-way valve in the Dive Shutoff Valve (DSV). 8. The gas is inhaled by the diver, and the next exhalation begins the cycle again. “... I was pleasantly surprised at how well this unit handled under some heavy usage. For those who remember the Prism Topaz, the new Hollis Prism 2 is a newer, refined version of the old work horse. Hollis has made it clear that they have wanted to keep the main design of the original Prism Topaz as it was such a reliable and hardwearing unit.

PRISM 2

I got the opportunity to test the unit in some caves in Mexico and Florida. At first I was concerned about the size of the unit, however, it handled quite well in small, tight areas. It is an easy unit to assemble and check. The fact that it is running a Shearwater Predator as the controller is a huge plus for the unit. WOB (work of breathing) is good and compares well to most other front mounted counterlung units. The biggest advantage of the unit is its reliability. I have dived 80 hours on the unit and I still have not had a single problem with it, which is quite impressive.” Rubens Monaco PADI Instructor Trainer TDI Instructor Trainer

The Prism2 is a fully closed circuit Rebreather, ideal for exploring open ocean, cave, or wrecks. This unit can be electronically or manually controlled which means you choose how you want the loop PPo2 maintained. includes shoulder mounted counter lungs and rear mounted radial scrubber which provide easy breathing with low resistive effort and low hydrostatic loading. The standard kit includes an electronic secondary control and primary LED displays with a backplate/wing assembly that provides a complete kit ready to dive out of the box.

Computers

Because the Dual Algorithm allows you to adjust the algorithm basis and its conservatism, you can adjust to closely match just about any other dive computer on the market, allowing you and any buddy to always dive in sync. Diving the same profile increases safety for both divers, and eliminates the need for one person to conduct a much longer or deeper stop when buddying with someone wearing a more liberal dive computer. You can’t control which dive computer your buddy wears, but you can control your ability to dive the same profile.

“I’ve been using Oceanic gear for more than 12 years now, my current set up is a Hollis HD100 BCD, EOS FDX10 1st and second stage, Alpha 8 Octopus and an OC1 Dive watch computer. I highly recommend this gear to all my students for comfort, ease of breathing, the OC1 is just the best computer watch on the market. I just got back from a trip to Truk Lagoon and reached a depth of 63.5 meters using this gear and it feels no different than diving a depth of just 10 meters.” Andrew Carney

Computers

Dual Algorithm

Choose the one dive computer that’s liberal, conservative or middle-of-the-road. Oceanic’s new range of computers let you choose the decompression algorithm that best suits your diving needs without compromising safety. Liberal Recreational Diving - The Pelagic DSAT Algorithm safely maximizes dive time for repetitive, multi-level recreational diving. This algorithm relies on the human Doppler studies used to develop PADI’s Recreational Dive Planner (RDP), and has been the basis of Oceanic’s and other manufacturer’s computer algorithms for many years. Liberal Repetitive Deep and Decompression Diving - The Pelagic Z+ uses the Buhlmann ZHL-16C database, which was conducted to meet the more rigorous demands of repetitive, coldwater decompression diving at altitude. The Pelagic Z+ mode maximizes dive times at depth without penalties.

On-Unit Log Book

This feature includes on-unit data storage capacity for up to 24 dives. Date and time stamp makes locating and viewing a specific dive quick and easy.

History Mode

Displays accumulative information for up to 9999 dives, 9999 dive hours and the maximum depth achieved. History information is maintained indefinitely, even if the battery is replaced.

OceanLog® Download & Settings Upload Interface

Advanced Digital Compass with North, Reference, Auto Home, and Declination Adjustment offers the ultimate in on unit navigation.

OceanLog Interface is an exquisitely detailed digital dive log. OceanLog allows you to easily transfer dive data from your Dive Computer to your Computer via a plug-in USB cable. Following download, your dive data is automatically formatted for easy viewing, sorting, analysis, and printing. Enter location, dive buddy and your notes and you’ve instantly created your own digital logbook.

Deep Stop

Wireless Air Integration

Digital Compass

Both the DSAT and Pelagic Z+ Algorithms allow (user ON/OFF option) credit for deep stops for No-Decompression dives in keeping with the data of Morroni et al (2004) and Bennett et al (2007). No penalty is given if the diver skips the deep stop, but it is strongly recommended that a shallow safety stop be made with or without the deep stop in keeping with the experiments of Pilmanis (1975). It is important to note that neither algorithm provides deep stops for decompression dives since there is ample experimental data [Blatteau et al (2005), Gerth et al (2007), and Gutvik et al (2007)] that indicate that this practice often produces an increase in the risk of DCS.

A transmitter threaded into the first stage high pressure port continuously sends cylinder pressure data to the computer. Frequencies are individually coded to allow multiple divers to swim side by side without interference from other units.

Advanced Free Dive Mode

This mode allows the diver to calculate and track Nitrogen Tissue Loading, allowing you to switch between SCUBA dives and Free dives on the same dive day.

No Deco Safety Stop Prompt

Our patented Air Time Remaining feature calculates your current depth, breathing rate, cylinder pressure, ascent time, and decompression status to tell you exactly how much time you can remain underwater.

An audible and visual alarm to remind you as you approach your programmed no decompression safety stop depth and an automatic timer counts down to zero. As in any other dive mode, you still have access to other pieces of information, and there is no penalty should you choose to disregard the safety stop.

Turn-Around Pressure Alarm

Alphanumeric Display

Patented Air Time Remaining Algorithm

A unique patent-pending feature that allows you to pre-program an audible reminder when you reach 70 to 205 bar in 5 bar increments. This helps ensure that you return to your exit point with plenty of air.

Audible Alarm

Our computers feature a variety of system and user customised audible alarms, alerting you to situations that pose a potential danger, or simply serve as a convenient reminder.

Audible Alarm Acknowledgement

Once triggered, the alarm will sound continuously for 10 seconds. The alarm’s job is to get your attention so that you look at the computer. Once it does that, simply press the button and it will stop.

Air or Nitrox

Our Computers act simply as ‘Air’ computers until you tell it otherwise, and you will always have the option to dive Nitrox whether that is this weekend or 2 years down the track.

Adjustable OceanGlo® Backlighting

Backlighting may be adjusted before the dive or “onthe-fly” underwater for brightness as well as full-time or on demand use.

An alphanumeric “Message Box” is incorporated into the display to provide text and numeric readouts in simple, unambiguous terms. Imagine beginning an ascent, and as the ascent speed increases, hearing a warning beep as the message box alerts with the words “TOO FAST”.

Automatic Altitude Compensation

Your computer will automatically compensate for altitude dives up to 14,000 feet, giving adjusted no-decompression times and depths. It can also automatically recalibrate the depth displays for freshwater instead of seawater above 2,000 feet.

Diver Replaceable Batteries

All Oceanic computers and transmitters feature diver replaceable batteries. This can be a real trip-saver on board a liveaboard boat!

Personal Conservative Factor Adjustment

When the Conservative Factor is set On, the nodecompression limit times are reduced to values equivalent to those that would be available at the next higher 3000 foot (915 metre) altitude.

Gauge Mode

Divers using advanced breathing gas may utilise Oceanic computers as an advanced air integrated digital depth gauge and bottom timer with detailed PC Interface.

“The AERIS F.10 was designed by freedivers for freedivers. It has many freediving specific features including a wide variety of convenient alarms. It’s ideally suited for all types of breath-hold diving, spearfishing or freediving, recreational to competitive. I’ve personally been diving with this computer for the past 14 months and find the repetitive depth alarm to be of specific value as it can track each atmosphere. The F.10 also features a surface interval alarm which is very beneficial during my interval training for competitive freediving. It has a unique safety feature of an on-going stopwatch so whilst in-water my running time does not get erased if the computer becomes submerged- unlike with any other freediving computer. Right now, this is simply the best freediving computer on the market - period.” Martin Stepanek

*Battery Life: estimates are based on full-capacity batteries, and continuous usage as described. 7 days per week / 2 dives per day / 1 hour dive time / 2 hour surface interval / 18 hour interval from last dive to the first of the next day. **Oceanic Personal Dive Computers have user selectable Sampling Rates that determine when data is sampled and stored for subsequent download to associated PC interface programs. More frequent sampling provides more data per dive yet results in storage of fewer dives for download. Use with Air or Nitrox, with or without air integration, dive profiles, Free Diving activities, and other variables may also affect the number of dives that can be stored. When memory capacity is exceeded, oldest dives are replaced with most recent dive.

User resettable automatic maximum depth indicator allows you to track your maximum depth with needle point accuracy. View your maximum depth during your dive or post dive for logging purposes.

Rotating Bezel

The rotating bezel allows the diver to easily navigate whilst underwater.

The Max Depth Navcon gauge is still one of the most dependable instruments around for divers who are just starting out or don’t feel they need the advanced features of a Personal Dive Computer just yet. Not to worry, as Oceanic’s modular gauge design allows you to easily swap out the depth gauge module with a PDC as your needs change and your experience grows. • Non-linear depth scale is easier to read in shallow depths and makes it much easier to maintain safety stop depths • OceanGlo® luminescent gauge face absorbs light and glows approximately 7 times faster and longer than other materials • 60m maximum depth reading • Maximum depth indicator

Temperature Gauge

The temperature gauge feature allows the diver to quickly check surrounding temperatures above and underwater.

Fins

QUADFLEX - Advanced Composite Materials Control the shape of the blade during the kick cycle and you control water movement – thus maximising the efficiency and propulsion of the fin. Our QuadFlex construction features two composite and two natural rubber compounds working together to provide varying levels of rigidity to precisely control the shape of the blade as it travels through the water. The engineered semi-rigid battens, flex channels and side rails direct water flow off the tips of the fin without allowing water to “spill” from the sides of the blade for uncompromising power and efficiency.

Patented Nature’s Wing® use a suction force which propels the diver forward through the water like lift pulls an airplane upward. The Vortex Fins create this force as water flows smoothly around the blades, which rotate to a reduced angle of attack. As the water funnels inward toward the centre opening, it accelerates like water at the narrowing of a river or water spraying out the nozzle of a hose. In all controlled testing split blade fins have proved to be faster, more efficient and less tiring than conventional “paddle” bladed fins. Hundreds of tests have been done in controlled conditions, and the results are truly amazing.

v16 Speed, comfort, and maneuverability; you can have it all with the Vortex V-16. The V-16 combines the patented design concepts divers have come to expect from Oceanic with a new mix of materials that enhance performance and style. Compared to conventional fins, the V-16 is up to 30% faster and more efficient, with less effort, stress and strain resulting in greater comfort and control. • Includes Spring Heel Strap for comfort and easy on and off • Patented Nature’s Wing® Propeller Fin Technology with four material compounds for ultimate performance and light weight • Semi-rigid battens and natural rubber flex channels precisely control the shape of the blade during the fin stroke to optimise power and reduce drag • Oversized side rails add rigidity and control movement of the blades for increased lift, power and efficiency • Ergonomically designed foot pocket accommodates virtually all foot sizes and boot styles • Available in XS, S, Regular and XL FIV16

“The new Hollis BioDry FX100 Drysuit is an excellent suit with characteristics like no other drysuit”, Jeff says. “The innovative material allows the wearer to glide through the water unlike conventional dry suits. There is no noticeable drag like you would expect while diving dry which requires less effort while swimming. The flexibility of the BioDry FX100 suit is comparable to wearing a wet suit. I have made numerous cave dives with the suit in some pretty tight places with no noticeable wear on the suit. I am definitely enjoying diving the Hollis BioDry FX100 Drysuit.” Jeff M.

What is Certegy Ezi-Pay Express?

Certegy EZI-PAY Express allows you to take your purchases home today, while making convenient fortnightly debited payments from your nominated bank account or credit card. It generally takes less than 10 minutes for the entire process. There is “NO INTEREST EVER!*” charged to you as this service is paid for you by your Authorised Oceanic Scuba Centre.

Why should I buy my own equipment? When you own your own Scuba equipment, you at once become more familiar with the positioning and the working of that gear, and you can adjust straps, Occy Reg and Computer positioning etc. Once you buy accessories such as Retainer Clips and Retractors, they can stay permanently attached to your gear. It really does make a lot of sense.

How Ezi-Pay Express works for you? Certegy EZI-PAY Express is commonly referred to as a lay-buy program, rather than a finance system, with the difference being you get to take your gear home from day one. If required, pay a deposit, and then complete the application form. That’s it…you’re now ready to dive!

What can I buy? Your Scuba Package comprising of Regulator, Occy, Buoyancy Compensator and Dive Computer is possibly your starting point, but you can also include your Wetsuit, Boots, Mask, Snorkel and Fins and in fact you can even include your Open Water or Advanced Dive Course.

How much can I borrow? Approved applicants can borrow up to $4,000 with No Deposit Required. Amounts up to $6,000 can be borrowed with a 20% deposit required.

What do I do next? Consult with your Oceanic Scuba Centre to determine the gear that suits you best. Your Oceanic Scuba Centre will have an application form for you to complete and most importantly have your diving gear ready to go!

Talk to a Oceanic Scuba Centre today about customising your new scuba package! Their are over 80 Authorised Oceanic Scuba Centres located throughout Australia. Visit the Oceanic website for you nearest location http://www.oceanicaus.com.au/dealers.php * Ezi-Pay price is based on 20% discount on normal RRP. Based over 12 months. 0% deposit. Oceanic Ezi-Pay Express is a continuing credit payment plan provided by Certegy Ezi-Pay Pty Ltd (ABN 28 129 228 986). A once off establishment fee between $35 and $90 to activate your account is payable with your first purchase under the plan. A monthly account keeping fee of $2.90 and a payment processing fee of $2.80 applies, other fees and charges may apply. Subject to change, see in store for terms and conditions or visit www.certegyezipay.com.au. For Certegy Ezi-Pay Express No Interest Ever! Applies.
