We are at 60 feet on open circuit.

I just updated the video feed with a video I shot tonight. Only got about 15 seconds of video with the shark in it -- it wasn't too cooperative today. Of course, when we got out of the water, there were three of them on the bait. argh.

I also got some good RATFISH and DOGFISH video. :chatterbox:

How come I can't see any of the Kyte stuff? I just get an never ending gray screen.

Hey ERIC, you had better leave some stuff to do for when you retire one day?
Maybe you could buy a 4x4 and caravan and travel around AUS. :chatterbox:

Great shots...

We're on a liveaboard, so there is no opportunity to go to Pike Place. :chatterbox:

drew -- Kyte sometimes is down. I think they're still having some growing pains as company...

New videos are up! Spiny dogfish and spotted ratfish (check the Kyte feed).

I'll embed the spiny dogfish one here.

Just uploaded a bunch of videos to the Kyte feed.


Should they be available on the same Vimeo page as the others? All I see there are the ones from yesterday.

BTW, in the little slide show in the first post of this thread, it looks like you're using a cage of some sort. You aren't scared of a little six gill shark, are you?! :chatterbox: :o

When a 12-footer tried to get into the cage? Yes.

The bulk of the videos are on the Kyte feed, which is on the front page and on the first message in this thread.

Bruce: obviously, we have to follow the rules of whatever operator we go with. Using a cage has nothing to do with "courage." It's a nice place to hang out down there -- we're on a slope, there can be current, and the visibility sucks. Given the right conditions (and reputation, really), we were allowed to leave the cage when we wanted to.

It's worked fine every time you've posted - and I'm only on Safari.

I suspect it's my firewall or snitch blocking something. But if VM Windoze works then it's gotta be local. But your ugly mug is not worth me spending hours trying to troubleshoot. :chatterbox:
