#393985 Snorkeling w/ Turtles and Sharks

Posted by uzun on 01 April 2018 - 07:34 PM

Went Snorkeling here in San Diego, CA this AM (April 1st).  Water temps were very cold, 50-51F.  Still there were several turtles around, and some seven gill sharks as well.  I don't know how the turtles can stand such cold water.  The air temps were warmer but the turtles never seem to leave the water so...


Here's a short video of the mornings swim, shot with a GoPro Hero 6 Black -

Here's a short video I made showing the recent Tuna Crab Invasion at La Jolla Shores and Cove in San Diego CA.  This video shows the disruption all these crab have on other species in the area.  Shot in March of 2018 using a Panasonic GH5 camera, Nauticam Housing and Panasonic 14-42mm lens.




#393345 San Diego La Jolla Cove Kelp Dive

Posted by uzun on 14 March 2018 - 07:43 PM

Here's a short video of a dive at La Jolla Cove in San Diego, CA from March 13, 2018.  Poor viz so not really good  quality, shot with existing light and a Panasonic GH5 w/ Panasonic 14-42mm lens in a Nauticam Housing.   At least there were plenty of sharks around, although I wasn't able to get too much good footage of them due to conditions.  Water temps warmer than usual for this time of year, about 59F.

#318918 Coronado Video Posted (near San Diego, CA)

Posted by uzun on 23 October 2012 - 06:54 AM

I posted a short video from a series of 3 dives I did last Friday Oct 19th at the Coronado Islands in Baja California very close to San Diego. It's just footage from that one day, but it features a number of sea lions in very good viz (for this area). Additionally there's a whitetail major at 1:36 which is an unusual fish to be found in this area (usually occurs quite a ways south of here). Footage was shot with a Sony HDR-XR520v camcorder in a Bluefin Pro Housing from Light and Motion, using Light and Motion Sunray 2000x video lights (with lithium batteries).
