@allison: Laurent mentions in the movie they went to a series of caves that are at 105 and also 115m to look for it, he mentions that he could spend about 25-30min at this depth and they had to do 4h30 of deco stop.
From the comments (and of course the footage) they did many dives here during a duration of 4 weeks, some unsuccessful one where they spent all their time looking and in particular the one where he saw the coelecanth outside the cave right after they went over the drop off. During this period they apparently saw 4 different coelacanths here.

mentioned back in september:
Expedition took place in Sodwana begining 2010 (with Peter Timm). Team of 4 rebreather divers. Diving 4-5h / 100-120m almost every day during 4 weeks. We have seen the coelacanthe only 6 times during 25 to 35' each successful dive.
Difficult dives with a lot of current, drift more than 8km during deco sometimes.
This fish can be over 1.80m. It is very peaceful and his way of getting around is really unique.
