Mahalo nui loa to GinnyJo for coming out with us twice last week for a pelagic research dive and sharing positive media for sharks! We are so glad we could be a part of your birthday celebration and hope to dive with you again sometime 😊No two dives are the same, and especially as we head into whale season you never know what you are going to see! 🦈🐟🐬🐳🐋🐢Check out GinnyJo's account for more content from her time out with us, as well as our non-profit conservation benefit line @oneoceandesigns she is representing if you are interested in some guilt free shopping for this upcoming holiday season 💙🐯🎄 @ginnyjo_ ・・・

A little turtle love from yesterday’s dive. Today we’re heading back and hopefully clearing more weights out. Had I known how much of a minefield it was going to be I wouldn’t have worn my weight belt as just picking up a few was overweighting me so much I wasn’t able to stay afloat without some serious continuous kicking. Let me know if you want to help us! Based on what I saw, the more people out there, the better.
We love sharing the incredible life in our oceans with others - this is one of our best memories as @elliesimmonds experiences what over 20 years of conservation looks like - thousands of jackfish school in tornado formation in the Sea of Cortez thanks to the concerted efforts of locals to create the Cabo Pulmo Marine Reserve! We had the privilege of hosting this Paralympic powerhouse swimmer in Baja - she’s a natural freediver, kind and hilarious! Thanks Ellie for being such a great spokesperson for our planet... especially the blue parts, both salty and fresh 💦 📷 @petermarshallphoto
The green turtle, just one of 7 sea turtle species, all of which are listed either threatened or endangered with extinction. Longline fishing, habitat destruction as well as human consumption has devastated all 7 species. We have the knowledge to change the 6th extinction from happening, but it must come from everyone of us! Be the change the world needs to stop destroying our only home, earth as well as our own existence!⠀

Sinopinas: Why travel?
Martin: I love traveling especially to places with beautiful dive spots and interesting marine life. It brings me happiness, new experiences, new ideas.
Sinopinas: What’s the most important thing to consider when traveling? Why?
Martin: Travelers should consider going to places where they can also explore underwater, always include diving or even snorkeling in their travel plans. We normally see landscapes and aerials, but there is something magical in underwater scenery.
Sinopinas: How does traveling impact your life?
Martin: Because of diving and traveling, my hobby became a passion. It inspired me to move to Bohol so I can continue doing what I love to do - capturing moments, art, diving and traveling. Living in Bohol which is basically the center of the Philippines makes it a lot easier to do all these things compared to Manila.
Sinopinas: What’s the most unforgettable travel experience you ever had in the Philippines?
Martin: The most unforgettable experience was in 2010 when I went to Balicasag for island hopping and snorkeling trip. I almost drowned because I didn't know how to snorkel at the time and no one was around to help me swim back to the boat. After that I discovered Freediving, I did some research because there's no freediving school back then.

It’s bloody hot in Adelaide again today, just the way I like it! A quick rewind, two weeks ago to @authentickangarooisland - when we kicked back on the Vivonne Bay jetty, smashing down King George Whiting burgers before jumping into those ridiculously turquoise waters below. Tough to find a better place to spend a summer arvo! 🏖☀️💦 #vivonnebay#kangarooisland#seesouthaustralia#seeaustralia
What do Dive Instructors / DM do on their day off? Dive MORE! Just like Nicole, a PADI PRO, who loves taking her Camera out for a couple of dives on her day off. ———————————————————————— Haven't forgotten about this amazing dive with these Komodo Mantas, I literally didn't want to surface - even had someone come down to tell us after 90 minutes and tell us everyone was waiting for us. ————————————————————————
These guys were so happy to see us today in some very clear water🐬💦 Come join us!

The warm, calm waters in #LaPazBCS attract hundreds of gray whales during migrating season. Visit during #winter to spot these beautiful creatures. @HotelMarinaLPZ1 is offering a special rate for the gray whale season through April! 🐋

The coolest plant in the world. Giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) is the largest underwater algae, the fastest growing plant on the planet (up to 2 feet a day) and is home to huge amounts of biodiversity. In one large kelp holdfast, a system that acts like roots, scientists counted over 100,000 individual animals and over 150 separate species. Kelp can grow nearly 200 feet tall and are held upright with bladders they fill with air from the ocean water. This vertical plant is joined by many more to crest an underwater forest that stretches for miles creating a home for more than 1,000 species. The kelp forests off That stretch the length of the west coast of Canada all the way to Mexico are the most extensive in the world. Never seen one so you don’t care? Harvested kelp is the the principle source of algin which is used to thicken, suspend, and bind products which you eat all the time. #zeagle#morebeyondthesurface
Pure magic. I know that lots of people just go to the Bahamas to sit on the beach and drink piña coladas and play golf. And I like a beautiful beach as much as anyone. But the major tourism pages and companies sell the Bahamas with white sand beaches, drinks, over-water swings, women in bikinis, swimming pigs and starfish. Anything with a shark in it is untouchable. I think that's so unfortunate. The Bahamas lie at an amazing place in a wild and beautiful ocean and they've done a better job than most countries of protecting their marine life. Experiences like the one pictured are a big part of what make the Bahamas so special. If you're not immersing yourself in the underwater world of the Bahamas you're missing most of what's awesome about the country. And focusing tourism only on other things and "luxury" attractions does the marine life there, and the efforts to protect and understand it, a disservice. I think this targeted marketing probably reflects the values of our culture though. Most of us are increasingly estranged from, and scared of, the natural world. I know not everyone has equal access to wild places. But I think it would do all of us a lot of good if we tried to spend a little more time outside learning to understand and appreciate the the natural world.

Isn't this baby just amazing ❤️🐬
More info? :
Peter Chinn used a combination of dimensional ultrasounds, tiny cameras and computer graphics to create photos like this of baby animals. These images were made for National Geographic documentary "Extraordinary animals in the womb", which tracked process of growth from conception to birth.
