CNN goes free diving off Cayman, brings back photos ...


"One deep breath: Pushing the limits of freediving

Off the coast of the Cayman Islands this week, Logan Mock-Bunting photographed an international freediving competition and witnessed iron-lung athletes break breath-holding records. An experienced freediver, he shot the underwater event without an air tank."




Walking a fine (descent) line near the abyss.











Not sure what is going on here but it doesn't look too good unless it is a training exercise.

The competition was "Grand Cayman 2012- Deja Blue III"

Strange things from the undersea world of Jacques Cousteau ...




The natural reaction of people from the south of France after eating roast ortolan (sparrow-like birds) on an open fire, whole. I understand the bird has become endangered but you would think wolfing these little guys feathers, organs and all would have gone extinct a coons age back. Images from: Cousteau Divers on Facebook



Waiting to spend a penny at the loo or maybe just for the bus.



You can have any color wetsuit you would like, as long as it is silver?



Theater collides with functionality, which one won?



Thank you for all the great images over all those years Captain Cousteau.

I have had dreams at night like this but never expected to see anything close to it in life. One of my favorites was something resembling the Matterhorn in what must be a few miles of visibility with incredible reef growth and rock forms. Improbable, still Norbert uses some exceptional vertical viz to capture an intriguing sea mount rock form with rays to boot.


"Roundabout by Norbert Probst

I’ve captured this photo at Roca Partida, an volcanic rock who comes up from 2000 meter of depth. Roca Partida (English: Broken Rock) is the smallest of the Revillagigedo Islands in Mexico. It is uninhabited, with an area of only 1.4 hectares (3.5 acres): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roca_Partida

This place is famous for extreme clear water and its Pacific Manta Rays (Manta hamiltony) cruising arround the extinct volcano.

I did a dive on the Sea Emperor aka Aqua Zoo a week or so back. Here are some images that came out of it. Brian Gagas of Gold Coast Scuba had a graduating class of scuba divers out who show up below and in the video. Congratulations! There was nice blue water visibility this morning, around a hundred feet. Unfortunately the overhead light was a bit low challenging the shooting a bit despite the excellent viz.

Captain Aria does a cameo in the video clip while hauling my camera rig and dive scooter aboard, multifaceted! Thanks to the expert, congenial and helpful crew of South Florida Diving Headquarters as always.



Brian's students near the bow of the 171 ft. by 45 ft. barge. I put an inset of myself on there (from yet another dive) to tie things into scooter free diving. The inverted hopper barge has the nice twin slits in the bottom (top) of the hull allowing convenient egress should the need arise.








Brian works on some skills on the sand with the students.


Images shot with a GoPro Hero 3 Black camera.
