FULL STORY

Stuart Westmorland 1958-2016

“A Life That Touches Others Goes On Forever”

Stuart was not only an accomplished Photographer, but also an Artist. What set him apart was his ability to capture “life” in his images. Not only underwater but above. His photos made you feel if you were there, part of the scene.

Unfortunately Stuart left this earth way too early and will be missed by the many who were fortunate to have him in our lives. Stuart zest for life and the many ways he touched so many, will always be with us. Stuart will always be a comfort and inspiration in our lives.

 Wakatobi Dive Resort 

By lrc   Visited in May 2016 and the experience was truly over the top. First of all – it’s in the kind of remote and isolated location that experienced divers are always searching for.  There is tremendous attention to detail in every aspect, clearly a lot of love and effort have gone into creating this wonderful place.

Very few people know that Bali has fantastic diving, especially for critter lovers.  Part of the coral triangle, the richness of the coral reefs is unique. More than 3.500 species have been discovered here. The muck diving can be compared to the Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi.
