This episode of the Blue Earth Podcast is a conversation with Ken Nedimyer, a CNN Hero for “Defending The Planet”.

It’s a story about a former commercial fisherman who proactively worked with state and federal groups to ensure a sustainable future.

His observations about reefs in jeopardy led to possible ways to save them. He became an innovative coral reef advocate and coral reef nursery innovator, not only in the Florida Keys but around the globe.

Ken moved to Florida as a boy, he fell in love with the ocean and its many creatures. After earning his degree in Biology from Florida Atlantic University, he headed south to the Keys and never looked back.

Typhoon International announce new Pro Combo Mask and Snorkel Set

Published

on

Get ready for your next underwater adventure with Typhoon International’s new Pro Combo set of mask and snorkel.

The snorkel, with its semi-dry top and large bore tube provides plenty of air while minimising water ingress so it’s easy to control your breathing while keeping the water out using the purge valve.

The mask is manufactured from tempered safety glass and is wide and clear so you won’t miss any of the sights of the deep.  The silicone skirt makes the mask comfortable to wear too.

The Pro Combo mask and snorkel set live in a fully recyclable handy mesh bag when not in use, so they can carry on drying out from the inside. The set comes in a great choice of colours: blue, silver or yellow.  The set is available in both adult and junior sizes so there is one to fit every member of the family.

Whether for the family holiday or for keeping onboard a boat for when it is needed, Typhoon International’s Pro Combo is a perfect way to introduce you to the world of snorkelling and at an affordable price.
