Came across about 8 cuttlefishes while we were diving out at the house reef on the 5th of January 2019. While we were diving yesterday, at least 6 of them were still hanging around and I was reminded of this video I took.
Filmed at Critter Circus I, housereef of @tasikdivers , Manado, Indonesia. Visibility reduced because of the recent storms but still an incredibly beautiful dive.
Jumping in with hunting Striped Marlin was the most exhilarating scene I've ever come across underwater. Like being in your own private episode of Blue Planet, we travelled farout at sea to find a rare aggregation of marlins, hunting down sardine bait balls. You followed the birds above to find them, and then tried to position the boat into their course...the captain would shout "go, go, go!" and you jump in and get about 10 seconds of pure action. If your timing is good, as it was for this image, the marlin come within inches of you as they ruthlessly cut down the sardines. It was my biggest reason for heading to Mexico last year and it didn't disappoint. Huge props to our incredible guides Pancha and Cris of @nomad_diving for getting us there.
Over the weekend this gorgeous mermaid and I became certified Padi Level 1 Freedivers! So happy and we both can't wait to push the limits and see what we're capable of! @lisavaleriek Big thanks to our amazing instructor @brit.brit88 💙 📸 @danhlegend
