JBL Expedition South Seas I and II

JBL Expedition South Seas I and II

A luxury hotel with sails: The Aquatiki III

The catamaran became our home for 15 days and nights. Sometimes we were only travelling for a few hours to reach the next dive spot, but sometimes we were at sea for 11 hours, motoring and sailing. Cook Nina conjured up incredible meals three times a day.

The skipper Mathieu was always friendly, relaxed and found a solution for every wish or problem. The cabins in the hull of the catamaran were not exactly spacious, but we only slept in them. We had enough space on deck. The main deck with lounge and large multi-purpose table, where we also ate, the upper deck, where there was always a fresh breeze, and the foredeck for sunbathers. The highlight was a platform at the stern, which could be lowered and was actually intended for the dinghy. For dives that started directly from the Aquatiki III, the divers simply sat on the platform with their tanks and were then slowly lowered into the water. Absolutely superfluous and yet we will miss it!

We dived with 12 or 15 litre cylinders and compressed air. One of our participants, who was always surprised about his high air consumption, only found out on the last day that he had the smaller 12 litre cylinder. It was a funny situation - at least for everyone else!

Before every dive and before every snorkelling session there was a briefing in which the location, the current and the animals to be expected were explained.

PUSH messages from JBL

What are PUSH messages? As part of the W3C standard, web notifications define an API for end-user notifications that are sent to the user's desktop and/or mobile devices via the browser. Notifications appear on the end devices as they are familiar to the end user from apps installed on the device (e.g. emails). Notifications appear on the end user’s device, just like an app (e.g. for emails) installed on the device.

These notifications enable a website operator to contact its users whenever they have a browser open - it doesn’t matter whether the user is currently visiting the website or not.

To be able to send web push notifications, all you need is a website with a web push code installed. This allows brands without apps to take advantage of many of the benefits of push notifications (personalised real-time communications at just the right moment).

Web notifications are part of the W3C standard and define an API for end user notifications. A notification makes it possible to inform the user about an event, such as a new blog post, outside the context of a website.

JBL GmbH & Co. KG provides this service free of charge, and it is easy to activate or deactivate.
