“News @ Depth and Deeper Blue News Join Forces to Build the Most Comprehensive Underwater News System on the Planet
The mysteries of the deep have long held fascination for man but diving is still considered by many to be a sport reserved for the few, the bold, and the brave. Advances in technology, communications, and world travel have ushered in a new era for the sport of diving. Millions of people are taking the plunge and exploring the beauty and the hidden treasures beneath the sea.
News @ Depth and Deeper Blue News are leading the dive industry into the computer age. “”Teaming with Deeper Blue adds a new dimension to our on-line dive publications. Our organizations share a common goal to provide the most dynamic and comprehensive global news resource for divers and industry professionals alike””, explains REN President and founder of the News @ Depth, Donald McCrary. “”The exciting part is that we share a true passion for the sport and a vision to bring news about all aspects of diving, combining the visually striking beauty of the undersea world with the power of the Internet”” adds Stephan Whelan, the founder and publisher of Deeper Blue.
Both on-line dive publications have a refreshingly bold and contemporary approach. Each offers a different angle and numerous related forums, making this link of sites especially noteworthy. Deeper Blue (http://www.deeperblue.net) is well-known for its expert staff and involvement in the sport of free-diving around the world, an exciting sport that allows a diver to test his/her lungs and strength of mind on just one breath of air, becoming one with the sea sans scuba gear. News @Depth (http://www.divenews.com) offers in-depth and unique weekly feature stories about diving’s rich history, people that shape the sport, education and safety, marine life, reef awareness, and daily cutting-edge news and information about all aspects of diving with an emphasis on scuba.
This partnership establishes News @ Depth and Deeper Blue as portals to related dive sites in our system. These are geared toward the neophyte and the dive master, the Pacific apnea diver and the Great Lakes wreck diver, the possibilities are endless.
“”The National Association of Scuba Diving Schools in Japan and Australia recently joined the Worldwide REN and News @ Depth moving our dive shop network into international markets that represent some of the best diving in the world, “” adds McCrary.
Deeper Blue is headquartered out of Europe and spans the globe with editorial teams reporting the news as it happens. Deeper Blue is sending a team to Spain in October to cover the Freediving World Championships. Written, pictorial, audio and video broadcast coverage of the event will be part of the news shared at http://www.freedivingworldchampionship.com.
