The Naked Adventurer Rescued At Sea

The Naked Adventurer Rescued At Sea

So here’s the low-down: This guy, Keith Whelan, aka “The Naked Adventurer,” was trying to become the first Irishman to row solo across the Indian Ocean… completely naked.

Unfortunately, he hit some rough seas, got injured, and had to call for help.

He blog read:

"Keith's rowing boat [a Woodvale Solo class boat] was hit by a large wave last night while he slept. The force of the wave threw him across the boat's inner cabin and resulted in a laceration to the head. Keith was able to stop the bleeding himself and with that in mind, decided to seek help at first light."

Hopefully he recovers and can try again!

William & Kate Finally Off On Their Honeymoon!

Filed under: Royals Royce

Yes! As we speak, the newlyweds are relaxing somewhere unknown to the rest of the world outside of the palace and the paparazzi are scouring the globe trying to find them!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, aka William and Kate, have finally gone off on their honeymoon. This morning, the Palace confirmed that the happy couple headed off for some alone time together as William was given two weeks leave from his duties with his RAF Search and Rescue squadron. As the bride and groom are hoping to have some "privacy" during their honeymoon, the Palace is mum about where the couple have gone to.

If it makes any of you feel better, Kate probably didn't even know where they were going on their honeymoon as it is tradition to keep the bride in the dark about the honeymoon destination. But she's in the know now! HA!

So far, the only lead anyone has is the island of Seychelles in the Indian Ocean, but we imagine that's a false trail.

Sneaky, sneaky royals.

UPDATE: William & Kate's honeymoon destination IS the island of Seychelles! It's been confirmed!

New Species Of Large Squid Discovered

Filed under: Sea Creatures

An expedition in the Indian Ocean has resulted in the discovery of a new species of large squid!

giant squid

The new species is about 30 inches long and belongs to the Chiroteuthid family, which is known for the underwater light shows that they put on to lure in prey.

This discovery was made during the Seamounts project, when a team of the world's leading marine experts ventured out on a six-week research expedition above seamounts in the southern Indian Ocean. Seamounts are underwater mountains that do not reach the surface of the ocean.

These discoveries are said to help improve the conservation of marine resources and future management of deep-sea ecosystems around the world.

This is super cool!

Looks like Russell Brand and Katy Perry have got quite the honeymoon ahead of them!

Earlier today, the newlyweds flew from Jaipur, India to Maldives, which is an island nation in the Indian Ocean known for high-end resorts.

According to Jaipur airport director R.K. Singh, the newlyweds had friends join them on the flight.

We'd probably keep things a bit more intimate if it were our honeymoon, but we guess they're not worried about some extra company ruining the romance.

Good for them! We hope they have an amazing time!

Where would U go for your dream honeymoon?
