Testing out the new bullet time feature on the Insta360onex camera at beautiful @Oceans5Dive on a perfect blue sky day! This is such a cool feature and a great way to make a travel video that makes you feel like you are really there! Just love all the huge grins on everyone’s face who participated in making this film!

Here’s a banner video I made for my Soulwater Productions FaceBook page. It features some of the coolest little critters of the ocean like blue-ringed octopus, and impressive pelagic life such as hammerhead sharks, giant manta rays and big schools of fish. This brought my FaceBook page to life. If you would like a banner video like this too, don’t hesitate to send me a message!

Diving in Nusa Penida feels a bit like diving in the highlights, especially around September and October! This is when the super cold upwelling currents hit the reef, bringing with them incredible pelagic life. This year had a record number of sightings of the mythical Mola Mola, elusive Thresher sharks, elegant Manta rays, majestic Hammerhead sharks and even a once in a lifetime sighting of a Great White shark in cold Penida waters. Take a look at some of the spectacular diving and topside entertainment to be experienced with one of Nusa Penida’s newest and most fun dive operators, Nomads Diving Penida!

Thanks to Adrien Kepler for allowing us to use his beautiful music for this video. Please check out his work in the links below:

Promotional video for Bali Diving Academy showcasing the resorts and diving in six locations around Bali. Pemuteran and Menjangan offer incredible wall diving, a beautiful BioRock house reef right off the beach and sites covered with huge sea fans and a myriad of unusual marine life. Tulamben is most famous for the Liberty wreck, but also has a great wall dive and wonderful macro life. Amed is macro heaven but also has some unique sites such as Pyramids and with huge fields of garden eels and man-made reefs that are home to schooling fish and many strange critters. Padang Bai has a wide variety of reefs with beautiful corals, great macro and turtles as well. And Lembongan has to be one of the most famous dive locations around Bali, famous for its manta interactions, beautiful coral gardens, currents and cold water which bring the pelagics and masses of schooling fish onto the reef. This is also an IDC center and what better place to learn to become a dive instructor?
