Thanks @positive_vibr8tions for takin me out & takin this clip of me also! Let’s do it again soon! 💪💪
Not as big as the other one but some nice fillets for sure!

Ever had conch fritters? They are my favorite way with conch! How do you like them? Conch ceviche, conch soup..?? I like to freeze them for a couple days to let them soften up, take em out the shell, tenderize them with a big meat tenderizer chop it up & mix it into a yummy batter with cassava crumbs, crunchy greens & then deep fry them in coconut oil with a nice dipping sauce 😋😋
Watch my stories to see when I make my next batch for now ima Pop these big conchs in the freezer 😉 @ Barbados

Happy Birthday Lover!! Dirty 30!!
You are a wild one, & I would never want to tame you. So instead I run wild with you, & if I can’t come.. I’ll wait for you patiently to return. Waiting for your homecoming & can’t wait to celebrate with you @deep.sea.james 💋💋 It’s not just any one who would follow me to a tiny corner of the world to meet friends I made in a virtual world & sleep in a tent with no air mattress for five days waking up at the crack of dawn to slip into icy cold water and stay there for hours.. all with a deep skeg wound on your leg. I love you, happy birthday wild man ❤️

Take me back!! Take me back to the sweet clear water of the devils eye 👽 Here is a sneaky peak at some of the video from my recent trip to the springs!!

Back to front and inside out 🌀 Which way do you like better? And which photo do you prefer? I couldn’t choose one ☺️

Took a leaf out of my girl @sirenofthesprings book and set up this GoPro on a timer and played around by myself after everyone else got out. Cold as ice in there but I couldn’t help it, I had to stay in until the very last light! So worth it don’t you think!? @ Ginnie Springs

[08/29/19]   Biggest fattest Margate I ever did see. Saw him from far away heading towards a rocky outcrop so I closed the distance fast as I could and got a sweet head shot. Was really happy to have killed it instantly. Weighted in at 7.4 lbs which is monstrous for one of this species. Margate, or a black margate, is locally called a Porgy or sometimes even a “black snapper”. Not the best eating fish in the world but then not terrible either. It’s one of those - Trash or Treasure fish. It just needs some good strong Caribbean or Asian spices, chillies, in a fish curry and yammmm 😋 I’m gona do a big red curry Thai style for my fam and friends. Also - yes I know my wetsuit is all ripped up, somebody please sponsor me and send me a new one 😝👌🙏✨ Thanks for taking this video of me @reef.gr ✌️💯

Quick swim before the storm, I always like to get in and amongst the fish and see what they are up to before a storm. They get really active.. almost like they know it’s the last chance to snag a meal before things become turbulent!

Thanks for taking this shot of me showing one of the three ways to get a bubble ring going on @curwin246

TABIO ✌️ Casual shore dive and had a school of Tabio (aka Rainbow Runner) swim in like.. hey guys! What y’all doing up in here?! Reef yelled out HANNA! And there they were. They were kinda far outa range so I was doin my best tricks to get them to come in closer. Just got them in range and took a bit of a wild shot on this fat boy in his tail. Gave me a fair fight for his life down at 65ft managed to pin him on the sand to get a good hold and swim him up 💪 Such a good day when you take a client out and get them on the fish and also get yourself some dinner in the meantime. Cheers @reef.gr for being an epic dive buddy with a keen eye and for taking this sweet shot of me with my catch! Hope we get to dive together more in the future!

Dream or Reality? Sometimes it was hard to tell if I was dreaming or waking.. But this place is real! I hope every night I can return in my dreams to this magical fairytale place.

Sometimes Hunter, Other times Gatherer ⚡️ Was a slow day today but I took a drop down to say Hi to a small Green Turtle chillin on the bottom and what did I see? Couple big conchs! Added them to the lobster in my bag and ended up not a bad dive considering it was just in front my house 😎👌 Saw quite a few more big ones but picked my favorites and left the rest. Being Selective and thinking sustainably is 🔑 I have two more conchs in my freezer right now so going to make a big batch of my special conch fritters tomorrow for some friends and famalay. Nice to be back home again and in the ocean 🙃
Stay tuned to my stories tomorrow for some conch fritters fun times 🐚⚡️😋👌 @ Bridgetown, Barbados

Who is excited for the pelagic season to begin again?! I know I am! ⚡️⚡️⚡️ Just got some new pieces to add to my gear and I’m all set to slay some monsters this season. New knife, new slip tips and a brand new world record certified weighing scale ☠️☠️ Bring it on! A few months ago I posted this shot in the middle of a series of images and it’s come to my attention that once again a series of accounts are reposting this image without tagging me! Again I don’t mind if people share but I don’t want you to share and not tag me, especially if you are promoting your company. This fish was not speared in the Maldives guys it was speared in Barbados. On a dive I did with my buddies for personal pleasure and not on a paid excursion with another company. If you see this image going around please comment and tag me ! And be careful of what you see online. As always keeping it real over here 😎👌 This pic by @deep.sea.james

Above or Below? Think I will always pick Below! Waking in a warm tent hearing my friends breathing slow and deep, sunlight streaming in through the mesh of the tent, birds calling and frogs slowly quieting.. I nudge James awake and with sleepy eyes we walk through the forest to the devils eye with the basics- mask, snorkel and a @gopro ⚡️Cold fresh crisp water calls me into its arms, I am home again. If I could I would stay forever down below.

I have travelled all over this blue world and found some incredible places. But I have to say it is the PEOPLE who make it truly special. The people who create the moments and share the excitement and adventure with you. This trip would have been no where near as epic as it was without several key players. First I have to shout out my soul sister Kina who opened the doors to her home to us and truly went above and beyond to make this the trip of a lifetime. She is one of my closest friends and over the years we have had so many fun adventures in several different countries. I can’t wait to see where we will go next! I love ya girl! Next shout out has to go to @sirenofthesprings and her husband @fl_rougarou !! You guys are just the best. Thank you for bringing us into your circle and showing us your paradise. It feels like the start of a long and adventure filled friendship and I’m stoked to calm you guys my friends and my dive buddies! I hope one day we can show you guys what our slice of paradise is like one day! Next a seriously special mention has to go out to our buddy @gavinfernandess !! Who is our spearfishing buddy from Barbados who recently moved up to Florida. This legend came with us for part of the journey and braved a crazy 8 hour bus ride (plus two hour break down stop!) to come dive the springs with us! So so glad you made it and I’m sure you have barely wet your toes on the springs (he is planning to return ASAP).
Thanks so much to all the awesome people we got to dive with and hang with around a fire or in a spring! @molly_g_melin @traceinghamphotography @deepleigh @vbvberger @luvisthenewdrug & Brenton!
Biggest shout out goes to my husband tho who braved the whole underwater adventure with 13 stitches in his leg and dealt with a bleeding and super gross wound all cause of me! Not to mention drove us the whole 5 hours up and back and drove Gavin to the bus and was all around the guy you want with you in all sticky situations. I love you more than ever !! You are THE BEST ⚡️💪💞🥰☀️

THE DEVILS EYE 👁 I would have called it Stairway to Heaven personally 💞 Wow! What a place! Nothing like waking up at sunrise and going freediving in cold fresh water so clean you can drink it while you swim 🤯 Thisis the Devils Eye at Ginnie Springs and one of my absolute favorite parts of devils body that we visited 😊😃 Mind blowing visibility and scenery. So cool if you get up early before the tubers get going you can have the place to yourself! Living a truly blessed life this vacation with my love and cameraman @deep.sea.james 😘🙏 @ Devil's Eye - Ginnie Springs

King and Queen ♠️ Missing my lover today! Can’t wait until we are reunited and we can take on this new adventure together 😎😎 Throwback to that time you met me in @discoverdominica 🔥 Can’t wait for you to come meet me and discover the Florida springs! Love ya @deep.sea.james

DIVEFEST 2019

Explore Night freediving and Spearfishing!

Hunter Gatherer lifestyle 🤙 Being a Freediving/Spearfishing instructor is not always an easy job, you have to be a hustler, you have to work damn hard. I run my own school @tridentfreedivers where I’m the owner and sole employee. BUT it’s a challenge I absolutely love. For me, to be able to show people my world and teach them the most sustainable way to get their dinner, to be selective and to respect the ocean is worth more than anything. Sure I don’t make anywhere near the dollars I used to. But I’m happy all the time. And it gives me allot of peace and joy to bring people into this world I Love and to share it with them. Sometimes that means instruction- sometimes that can be sharing through these images to people around the world! So thank you very much from the bottom of my heart to everyone who comes and takes a course with me, learns to spearfish and thank you to anyone who double taps my posts! You guys help me to do what I do and I am very grateful 🙏 #divefest2019 has been amazing so far! So great to see this event growing year by year. Tomorrow is the biggest part of the event for me where I get to open up my world to the public and to bring you all into my ocean home. Can’t wait to see you all tomorrow in Speightstown at 9am for the Freedive demo and Apnea Games! Come and learn a little bit more about the art of breath hold with me 👌👌
