Is it Africa? Or the Caribbean?

None of them - it's in the middle! Far off the coast of Senegal, Cape Verde is a tropical Atlantic paradise with great diving opportunities. If you want to know more, pick up the December 2014 issue of German magazine Tauchen.

Who knew there was a tropical paradise in the middle of the Atlantic ocean? Not too many, actually - but Cape Verde is a destination that deserves far more credit and attention than it has gotten thus far.

Located in the midst of the Atlantic ocean currents, the marine life is plentiful and strangely mixed: Divers will recognize both Caribbean and Mediterranean species, swimming side-by-side across the coral-covered volcanic seabed.

If you pick up the December 2014 issue of the German dive magazine Tauchen, you can read all about it on a 6-page spread!

Cape Verde offers big schools of fish, wrecks, endemic nudibranchs - and spectacular caverns littered with sandtiger shark teeth. The cavern diving is some of the best I've seen anywhere, and it's easily accessible even for Open Water divers.

As usual, Tauchen have also made a promotion video for this issue - featuring my story:

Biggest in Europe

Crustaceans are a strange breed of animals. They are closely related to insects, and their extreme diversity in terms of behaviour, size and appearance always attract the attention of divers.
