Galapagos liveaboard, 2020
One of the best liveaboards I have been on (although it did get cold sometimes). Went in January 2020.

Arrived on Santa Cruz, and went from there to Bartolomé, Wolf, Darwin, Wolf, Fernandina, Isabela, Dumb Rock (Pinzón) and back to Santa Cruz. There was both diving and some excursions. Was fortunate to see large schools of Hammerheads, (some silkys), Galapagos sharks, Galapagos Bullhead shark, huge schools of salemas, Cownose rays, Redlipped Batfish, Sealions and much more. Had the time to also do some additional land tours on Seymour, spending time with Frigate birds, Blue-footed Boobies and Land and Marine Iguanas.

Second time I was there, but this time the focus was on diving, and it w...

Wonderpus Octopus in Lembeh Strait, Indonesia
Views 88Year ago
My second most favorite Octopus (Mimic being the first), the Wonderpus Octpus, or Wunderpus photogenicis. I can spend a full dive just watching them move around. #Wunderpus #LembehStrait #Octopus
Orangutan Crab in Lembeh Strait
Views 77Year ago
Never get tired of looking at Orangutan Crabs, or Achaeus japonicus. Almost always find a couple of these critters when diving in Lembeh Strait. #OrangutanCrab #LembehStrait #ScubaDiving
Purple Rhinopias, or Weedy Scorpionfish from Lembeh Strait
Views 66Year ago
Saw it 2 times at the same dive-site (don't remember the site name) at around 30m depth. This Weedy Scorpionfish, Rhinopias frondosa was more purple, with some almost light burgundy coloration depending on the angle of the light. #LembehStrait #Rhinopiasfrondosa #WeedyScorpionfish
Leaf Pipefish in symbiosis with Sea Cucumber
Views 102Year ago
This Leaf Pipefish sure got a nice cover and host. Not sure if this is common, but it seemed as if they stay close to Sea Cucumbers, perhaps scrapping food and / or as camouflage. This was a first for me. Captured in Lembeh Strait, 2019. #LembehStrait #LeafPipefish #Indonesia
A mix of Nudibranchs from Lembeh Strait (including Ghost Melibe)
Views 106Year ago
I don't know of any other place than Lembeh Strait where you can spot such a huge variety of Nudibranchs. Here's a mix of some of the ones we saw, including the Ghost Melibe (Melibe colmani), which really is quite something. #GhostMelibe #Nudibranch #LembehStrait
Eagle Ray in Galapagos Islands
Views 72Year ago
This was shot in Wold Island in the Galapagos. Normally Eagle Rays (Aetobatus laticeps) don't come that close, but this was an exception. It was just hoovering in front of us for almost two minutes before it went away. Galapagos always delivers.
Galapagos Tortoise (2020)
Views 91Year ago
We spent an afternoon in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island, with the giant tortoises that Galapagos is famous for. Quite an experience.
Diving with Galapagos Salemas
Views 48Year ago
This was one of the very many awe moments in Galapagos Islands. Shot around Dumb Rock, and our very last dive of the trip. It started as a dive looking for Red-Lipped Batfish (yes we found that too), and ended with us swimming in this huge school of Galapagos Salemas, and ever so often also, Sea lions. Quite the experience. #Galapagossalemas #galapagos #galapagosislands
Red-Lipped Batfish (Galapagos Batfish)
Views 6KYear ago
Only on our very last dive in the Galapagos did we get to see the Red-Lipped Batfish, or the Galapagos Batfish (Ogcocephalus darwini) but it was well worth the wait. It's one of those weird creatures that does not belong or make sense, but thats nature. When it's swimming it looks like a fish, bit when sitting still, it looks like a... well, bat. And it walks like a bat. #galapagos #galapagosis...
Schools of Hammerhead Sharks in Galapagos
Views 215Year ago
Captured around Darwins Arch at Darwin Island in the northern most part of the Galapagos Islands. Hammerheads comes in after spending time in the deep (feeding on Humbolt Squid), relaxing and reoxygenating their gills in the strong currents. We got lucky on the last dive as the visibility cleared up and we could see them all coming in. #hammerheadshark #galapagos #galapagosislands
Sea Lions in Galapagos Islands
Views 198Year ago
There's an abundance of Sea Lions in the Galapagos Islands, and sometimes you just have to stand by the beach to catch them playing. This was such a case. Captured at North Seymour Island. #sealions #galapagos #galapagosislands
Coconut Octopus in Lembeh Strait (Indonesia), 2019

My favorite animal. The Coconut Octopus is not only interesting to look at, but it's also highly entertaining. The way it moves and work on it's "housing" or cob=ver is something I never get tired of watching. #coconutoctopus #octopus #lembehstrait #lembeh #indonesia
Liveaboard in the Maldives (Male - Gan), 2019
Views 1542 years ago
Did a back to back liveaboard in the Maldives, with start in Male, and traveled all the way down to Gan and passing the equator in doing so. The northern part is fairly traditional diving, and the south are more channels and blue dives (and I have never seen as many sharks as we did in the south). Hammerheads, Whale Sharks, Grey Reef, Oceanic White tip and Tiger Sharks.
Marbled Stingrays, Stingray and Porcupine Rays in the Maldives
