Night time at the harbor. Gun the boat throttle and head three miles straight off shore.
Leap into the inky water and descend to 30ft; The ocean floor is 6000ft below.
Hover in the seemingly empty and impenetrable darkness. As your eyes adjust and your torch sweeps the endless shadows you will experience a unique private light show from the myriad of translucent and bioluminescent creatures surrounding you.
Welcome to Blackwater.
My first three dives using a camera - not a GoPro - were all boat dives. Two day dives - Pipe Dreams and Golden Arches - and one night dive at Manta Village.
Stay tuned for footage of me diving at Manta Heaven with dozens of Manta Rays, shot by the professionals at Manta Ray Advocates.
