Don Silcock - Senior Travel Editor meets El Blanco

Don Silcock, Senior travel editor of Scuba Diver magazine, owner of Indo Pacific Images and my good mate joins me in the studio for a long overdue catch-up, a good yarn and a couple of beers. 

Join me as we discuss Don's travels and many other topics;

• travelling through India by motorcycle, 
• collecting photogrammetry images in Papua New Guinea with Sean Twomey, 
• South Australia - sharks and cuttlefish,
• Tasmania in search of handfish and DEEP corals, 
• Mexico to dive with crocodiles and enter the Cenotes
• Patagonia to dive with Southern Write Whales
• Camera equipment
• Yucatan chaos
• International flights
• Raja Ampat - Sorido Bay Resort and interviews with Max Ammer

This episode is simply STACKED and not one to miss.  Don goes into detail about the political complexities/ authorisations required to be able to dive in Patagonia with the Southern Right Whales.  He also gives a full breakdown of some heart-pounding moments and close calls with a 5-ton calf.  

That's without mentioning El Blanco... The White One

Don is on form as ever and an absolute encyclopedia of information, so pin your ears back and dive in to hear about many locations that you may recognise and many that may also be new to you.
