What’s your favourite marine animal you’ve spotted on a night dive?

We got to watch this little beauty last night. Did you know the blue-ringed octopus, despite its small size, carries enough venom to kill up to 26 adult humans within minutes. This is a perfect example why we look, but never touch when scuba diving.

Prototype testing. Dan returned again this year with modifications to a new lighting system he is developing for underwater photography.

We have been busy trialling the system for him over the last few days with some great results. Looking forward to seeing the next update when he returns.
