I’m Back!

People often ask what's my favourite photo I've ever taken underwater... well that’s a tough one. I LOVE my Bobtail Squid photos and of course there's my lucky anemone shot. But personally, the one that’s made the biggest impact and means the most to me is… a plastic bag!

Dive Like Nobody’s Watching

On my first ever dive as a qualified diver in Cornwall, a seal pulled my fin from my foot and tossed it in the water as a dog would toss a ball. From that moment I was captivated but no seals had ever come to play again. The seals of Lundy Island became my focus and a year later, I was ready.

Venture the Secret Passage – 3 County Traverse

After over 50 years of many theorising the existence of a mega cave system stretching over three counties, the prospect of attempting a trip from one end of the system to the other eventually emerged. After many months of careful preparation, Chris Jewell and Jason Mallinson took on the traverse, consisting of over 2.2km spent underwater and 8.6km of cave crawling.

The Underwater Twitcher

The sound of bombs reverberates through frigid water, a bubble jacuzzi vibrates all around. One thud from above is rhythmically followed by another. Inches away, a pointed beak slices through the surface, the tip of a white torpedo. An unblinking gaze stares back, yellow eyes framed by blue rings. It’s just another day in the life of a northern gannet, but a spectacle rarely seen by human eyes and one Henley Spiers sure won’t forget in a hurry.
