Isla Mujeres Whale Sharks

21 July 2014 - 05:25 PM

Like everyone else in the UW Photo world apparently I was in Isla Mujeres last week having a blast taking pictures of whale sharks in great vis. We were even visited a couple of times by sailfish. Kudos to Berkley White and the Backscatter crew for organizing a super fun trip.

After years of neglect I finally got around to re-building my personal website. Have a look, lots of California, BC and Alaska stuff but some too from the tropics.

Mugged by a Giant Octopus

Fantastic dive sunday with my buddy Rob. We sat 4 Giant Pacific Octopus at Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel, CA. One of them was quite interactive.

Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary

22 October 2013 - 01:22 PM

In October, 2013, Bay Area Underwater Explorers (http://www.baue.org), in collaboration with NOAA, mounted a weeklong dive expedition to Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary off of the dive boat Escapade. 

We visited Craine's Point and the Northern East and Northern West Ridges. The water was so thick with fish that they limited the visibility. The structure was completely covered by a variety of colorful sponges and anemones, and dotted with smaller fish including many young rosy and yelloweye rockfish.

The expedition would not have been possible without the support of NOAA, the Bodega Bay Marine Laboratory, Any Water Sports, and the crew of the Escapade.

 

Here are some images from the expedition. It was an amazing privilege to dive such a healthy, beautiful and unspoiled reef.
