Ocean's Alive/Clam Chowder for the Scuba Diver's Soul (DVD Review)17 Aug, 2008 By: John Latchem
Those interested in scuba diving should check out a new collection of indie DVDs under the "Dive In" brand devoted to helping curious divers explore Earth's oceans.
Ocean's Alive: Marine Life of Fiji Islands and Ocean's Alive: Marine Life of Catalina Island offer a lot of information about the fish and other marine life of their particular regions. The DVDs include a lot of good footage of each organism, and can be viewed as a single program or divided into the separate topics. While the narration and information will prove useful for divers hoping to identify different varieties of sea life, the footage in the complete program is good enough to serve a secondary purpose as a video aquarium.
Also offered is Clam Chowder for the Scuba Diver's Soul, a half-hour program that strings together various interviews of scuba divers relating humorous and interesting stories from their time in the water.
The titles are distributed by Victory Multimedia and will be available Sept. 23 (prebook Aug. 19) at $21.95 each.
