And there are things you have to take a photo with... Like this very nice turtle (I know, we're not supposed to grab them. But can anyone really resist it??
This dive was the best when it comes to visibility underwater... Kuwait waters are usually not so clear, but visibility it was exceptional that day. (Kuwait)

You may also come across fish where you really have to shoot and that's when a spear guns comes really handy... yummy yummy (Kuwait)DSC00559

You still have to keep an eye for dangerous fish... Awareness is really important when you're diving in a new region for the first time

Lion Fish DO NOT TOUCH (kuwait)

Glad you liked them.

Reading your comment with a bit more concentration I realized I didnt answer you properly.

Good dive sites in Kuwait are:
#1 Qarooh Island: best dive site if not for the long ride
#2 Om Al Maradem Sheeb:الشيب الي شمال الجزيرة
#3 Om Al Maradem Island: very close so you dont really have to worry about the weather
#4 Bnayya about 8 minutes away from khairan resort, not a bad dive site because it is very close
#5 Kubbar Island but you really have to watch it, too many boats and surfacing at the end of the dive is a bit of a problem unless you navigate properly and surface close to your boat.

you can but not now, he still didnt get his instructor license, I think he will havce it in a few months.
I am not saying this because he's my brother, but you should really wait till he does, he is a better instructor than the one we obtained our licenses from.

And thanks

Really not scarey. it's fun, it's not like you'll get attacked by lion fish or sting rays, they are only dangerous if you try to touch them.
So you are safe till you pass across a great white shark, he he he

Wayed wanasa!

And I agree M7ammad would make a great instructor, but diving is scary business.. The gear, the pressure, and the lack of air

I'd rather sit home and watch Nemo

Well nemo's environment is more colorful than kuwaiti water that's for sure, but nothing is better than diving... well, not nothing :p

stop mocking people for not going to Lebanon, it's not like we have our reservations confirmed yet.

بس البحر بكبرة يخوف متروس أسماك قرش :)

مشكور بس البحر ما يخوف... صار لنا سنين نغوص ولي الحين ما شفنا ولا سمكة قرش الا في الامارات وكنا رايحين مكان مخصوص عشان نشوفهم... بايعينها من قلب

وبعدين ترى القرش ما راح يجيك مني والطريج ويعضك لأن طعم لحم البشر ما يعجبه عشان شذي تشوف اغلب الحوادث تكون عضة واحدة وبس

بعدين محد قال لك تعال غوص بنص البحر, يعني خلك حوالين الجزر عند الشعاب المرجانية ولا تحاتي

Well, actually I havent tried that many underwater photography solutions so I am not in a position to give any advise.

These photos were taken using a sony DSC-T30 along with the underwater housing MPK-THC Cyber-shot® Marine Pack:

I think you should try a digital camera, even if the picture quality is not as clear at least you can take 10 pictures of the same thing (not worrying about the film running out) and then decide which to keep and which to delete.
