Barry Skinstad and his crew got into possibly the best baitball action I've ever seen, from almost every standpoint from small to big predators.
I can't say much more than that!

Ooh man, that's seriously impressive. I wonder how long a tank would last in a situation like that? I'm afraid there would just be a solid air column over my head. Thanks for putting that up Drew.

Someday,

yeah they got great footage. if you look in the archives there's also a clip of the cameraman getting bumped by a charging bryde's whale and a clip where a shark just makes it out of a charging whales mouth!

I've seen most of what they captured in South Africa for Galatée, and I don't remember Bryde's whales in da house! I'm not talking about the skills of the cameramen. Just talking about the action. The Océans crew never saw action like that underwater. But yes, Océans will be fantastic.

Outstanding footage, just wish it weren't so pixelated on their website. Hope I get the $ to do that before I kick the bucket.
