Tony Isaacson - Diving Naturalist. As a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor, AWARE shark conservation specialist and adventurer, I have dived in some of the most amazing diving locations on the planet. I have been scuba diving since 1970 and have logged over 3000 dives in more than 20 countries around the world. I’ve documented the marine diversity in exotic locations like Komodo, Fiji, Vanuatu, PNG, Tahiti and the Galapagos Islands. In 2013, I inspired Navy Clearance Diver and bull shark bite survivor, Paul de Gelder and a 60 Minutes film crew to dive with bull sharks at the Ultimate Shark Encounter in Fiji. I was a consultant on the making of documentaries on Leafy Seadragons (for Channel 9), The Great Barrier Reef (with Richard Fitzpatrick for the BBC) and filmed underwater footage in Indonesia and off the Queensland and New South Wales coasts for TRAVELTHERENEXT TV. In July 2014, I headed to South Africa for the Sardine Run and dived with the great white sharks from Durban to Cape Town, South Africa. I’m a great advocate for sharks, sustainability and ecotourism, and I regularly volunteer for Reef Check and Grey Nurse Shark Watch in Australia.

LIQUIDLIFE MAGAZINE COMES TO LIFE – FIRST EDITION OUT NOW!

 

Liquidlife magazine Sunshine Coast launch at Sealife Mooloolaba QLD

Last night we had the pleasure of attending the official launch of the Coast’s newest and exciting magazine Liquidlife. The brainchild of editor Leisel Walker, the magazine finally came to fruition after months in the making. Liquidlife is a one off. There is no other magazine covering watersports on the Coast so Liquidlife is here to fill a definite gap. The magazine has both an online format and glossy magazine for distribution to shops, cafes, and restaurants around the coast from Caloundra to Noosa. The content covers all things watersports, from stories on local personalities, care for the ocean, the latest in technology, and beachwear fashion connecting watersports with local businesses.

The launch was at Sealife, Mooloolaba – a fitting venue, with attendees surrounded by a backdrop of freshwater and seawater exhibits. Continue reading

Liesel says  “I am super excited about this new venture and believe there is definitely a place for it on the Sunshine Coast. We are covering all forms of watersports including fishing, diving and camping as we want liquidlife to be exactly as the name suggests – our Sunny Coast life around liquid!”.
