A Life Underwater

Ray: A Life Underwater is an affectionate portrait of one man's deep sea diving career, told through his extraordinary collection of marine artefacts.

This amazing film is about a 75 year old retired Commercial Diver, Ray Ives. Whilst we may not agree with taking "treasure" from the sea bed, this film is a beautiful insight into the life of a man wedded to the sea and diving. His descriptions of how it feels to dive are poetic, almost whimsical and the film is inspiring to young and old alike. Give yourself 15 minutes and immerse yourself. In the words of Ray "After all, everyone wants to find gold … and a mermaid."

The film was sponsored by yachthavens.com and Ray's diving museum is at Yacht Haven Quay, Plymouth.
