Hi all,

Here's a video short which follows my dive buddy Jim and I as we explore a deep "glass sponge" reef located in British Columbia, Canada.

Enjoy.

Thanks Mike,

 

I really enjoyed watching that.  Your narration is excellent.

 

And I learned something about sponges.

 

What depth is that sponge reef?  I didn't hear you mention a specific depth.

 

How many dives to collect that footage?

 

Regards

Peter.

Hi there. Thanks for the kind words.

Sorry, forgot to mention the depth range. This reef has nice sponges at 80 feet. Nice muddy bioherm around 110' and deeper.

The video on this was collected over 6 dives.

Combination of Sony HDV video and some GoPro Hero3 shots here n there.
