  1. It's very interesting that the Norwegians never received the same international ire and animosity as the Japanese. Even the Faroese pilot whale kills doesn't face the same anger as the Taijin dolphin kills, and the Japanese take much fewer cetaceans! Is it any wonder why this report came out 10 days ago and hasn’t gone viral? Go figure! http://time.com/4370478/norway-whaling-report/
  2. This is a collaborative video with a friend of me Location for the video: Egersund and Lysefjorden Norway. Cameras used: Sony A7 with 90mm macro and +10 diopter in Nauticam housing.

  3. yep, still a 1K camcorder video from the guy who left the tropic seas behind him. Coldwater rules! (at least for the next trips) i like to share my video "Norway - the dark edition" with you. It is full with rarities. Deepsea jellyfish Peryphilla peryphilla, deepsea corals, ratfish aka ghostsharks, monkfish and a tadpole fish. Theres also a narrated version of this video on my Vimeo account, called Norway - Ran´s Story. check it out. Have fun watching! Alex.
  4. Information for 2016/2017 season and 2015 season report. 2015 was an incredible wildlife year for us in the Hebrides, with over 700 basking shark sightings along with 1000's of dolphins (commons/bottlenose/white-beaked) 100's of minke whale & porpoises and of course the grey & harbour have been very playful in excellent visibility. We even had a leatherback turtle which was a first for us and very exciting along with a handful of oceanic sunfish over the season. In addition we had regular white tailed eagle sightings, and a wealth of seabirds including our regular puffin trips, gannets, fulmars, manx shearwaters, terns guillemots, razorbills etc etc. Our diving has also been going well with us continuing with our black water night diving and floodlit dives, both of which providing excellent results. This is addition to the excellent muck and nudibranch diving, stunning temperature reefs and plentiful wrecks in the area. Our basking shark weeks which are geared towards enthusiasts are full for 2016 but we do have spaces for 2017, however generally our three day trips which include basking sharks, seals, evening dive, puffins, fingals cave and whale & dolphins are good for a quick photo tour. Please have a look at our excellent film cut by our head guide Luke Saddler and filmed by Luke and I over the season. https://youtu.be/GKpn0qLJaWM In addition to our Hebrides tours, our other cold water wildlife spectacular had also had incredible results. Our tours to the Arctic Circle for the orca migration was hugely successful this year. Along with the hundreds of orca we also had spectacular encounters with humpback and fin whales in the water. In addition to wonderful surface light and behaviours such as lunge feeding humpbacks and spy-hopping orca next to the boat! We are running three weeks next year with specific logistics for free-divers and photographers. Again please have a look at our video from the trip for an example of some of the encounters. https://youtu.be/S8WQdefImIg For details on all of these encounters please see www.baskingsharkscotland.co.uk and feel free to contact us directly for any questions you might have.

  5. Hey Everyone. Just an update on what we're doing up in the Hebrides and also overseas with our wildlife and travel company Basking Shark Scotland (www.baskingsharkscotland.co.uk). Along with Dive Oban & Argyll which diving specific (www.diveobanandargyll.co.uk) Although 2014 wasn't a classic year for sharks and despite the media sensationalising things all over the UK, we still bucked the national trend which confirms that the Hebrides is the best place in the world for these sharks. We had around 150 sharks over the season which ranged from May-Aug this year. We also had excellent encounters with common & bottlenose dolphins, minke whales and sunfish. Our Grey & Harbour Seal trips have been running really well and are generally a great addition to our trips. Add this to the excellent marine life and visibility here there is fantastic diving and free diving opportunities, as well as the surface experiences such as the stunning Fingals cave. We really have a unique and diverse area, which combining the amazing pelagic life and diving opportunities results in an world class area. We also run a specific diving business - Dive Oban & Argyll which is diving charters and expeditions out of Oban. This can be booked for general diving year round and we have lots of very interesting photographic subjects nearby including the sepulid reefs, northern sea fans & fireworks anemones. For our basking shark & wildlife trips, check out some of the highlights of the year on the video below. We've been having good success with our drone and put together a video at the end of the year to showcase some of this. We'll be following up with more underwater footage but it always takes so long to work on all the media. [video=youtube;o4jH4JFo33Y] We have a variety of trips running over summer 2015 which range from day trips to week long expeditions. For serious underwater photographers who want specific time with the sharks and less distractions of mixed groups then we would recommend our week long trips which will focus on the sharks specifically. We have a lot of time to have great interactions with them, but also for other large pelagic and a fun one below from this year. We are running two specific shark week trips over the following dates next year and places are limited to 10 on each trip; 25th July - 1st August 2015 1st August - 8th August 2015 Our trip are based in the heart of the Hebrides and will include 6 full days at sea. Our trips are based aboard our Redbay Cabin RIB's, both having a 11m passenger style which is used for the sharks and a dive specific version. They are highly seaworthy, comfortable and fast, however the bonus is we have the speed to cover lots of ground but also have shore based for comfort. Very different to chugging around on a liveaboard in each others pockets. Price is from £980 based on a twin share, we do also have double ensuites, which cost a little extra as to be expected. In addition to our Hebrides trips following on from two great years in Iceland, we are continuing on with the short breaks there for 2015 too. Generally we visit in October which is after all the crowds have left but is also a good time for Aurora. Diving or Snorkelling is at the famous visiblity of the Silfra lagoon, volcanic ake, with additional trips to the geysers, waterfalls & hot springs in the area. They are 3 & 4 day trips based on UK flights but we do have other people internationally flying in to meet us with the good connections. More information can be found here, with pics and videos from the last couple of trips. http://baskingsharkscotland.co.uk/diving-swimming-in-iceland/ We also have a couple of last minute spaces on our Orca/Killer Whale trip in January 2015. We are taking a small group this year to Norway and only recently finished bashing out the details after our 2014 trip. Dates are 22nd- 29th Jan 2015. See here for more info and more details available via email if interested. http://baskingsharkscotland.co.uk/swim-with-killer-whales/ Thanks for your interest and very happy to chat via email and phone about any of our trips. Kind Regards Shane Wasik Basking Shark Scotland Dive Oban & Argyll Shane Wasik Photography
  6. This is the time that the beautiful nudibranches spawn here on the west coast of Norway. So me and my buddy went for some nudibranch hunting! Since the waters are so cold during the winter ( 34F) our only option is a heavy duty drysuit. We managed one hour bottomtime, but then it was time to head for the surface to a hot cup of coffee! I use an canon 350d in an ikelite housing. 160ds strobes and a l&m sola 800 focus light.
