We searched all day for the great whites spotted feasting on the dead whale carcass floating south of Honolulu. The ocean was brimming with so many talented divers and photographers this morning and it was great to see so many familiar faces. Hopefully the tigers, oceanic white tips, and great whites will return to eat later this week as we continue to keep our fingers crossed for another sighting. #divetosurvive #freedive #diving #spermwhale #greatwhites #greatwhite #tigershark #whitetip #sharkweek #underwater #freediving #roam #paradise #nature #natgeo @sealegacy #hawaii #travel #ocean

These sand patterns on the ocean floor change continuously and are a blank canvas of creativity from one dive to the next. @kimi_swimmy and I linking up for a quick dive at home. It’s amazing to watch the textures change right before us as the swell moves the water column at the bottom. 〰️#divetosurvive #freediving #underwater #paradise #roam #hawaii #freedive #riffe #patagonia #breitling #keepwildco #konabrewingco #yeti #nauticam #canon #apnea #diving #diver #nature #travel #natgeo

Land of enchantment.✨ It was a mystical morning right out of a storybook fantasy. The fog lifted from the valley as the sun exploded over the ridge. Rays of light pierced the water and danced fire on the sand below. A friendly pod of spinner dolphins circled us for over an hour, showing off their young and interacting playfully. @marina_oceanlove @jillyfish831 🎧 “Dreaming Tree” by Dave Matthews Band. #freediving #freedive #spinnerdolphins #dolphins #underwater #roam #paradise #hawaii #nature #travel #explore #betheadventure #padi

Some people just make you smile from the moment they greet you. @jillyfish831 is one of those people. She is warm, caring, and the embodiment of what it means to be a good friend. Couldn’t have asked for a better morning out in the blue. 💧#divetosurvive #freediving #underwater #apnea #spinnerdolphins #dolphins #hawaii #nauticam #canon #nature #omer
