Searching for Dinosaurs
- Published on Feb 2, 2020
- 'Searching for Dinosaurs' is filmed in the Kei islands, one of the last untouched paradises of Indonesia.
The only known place in the world where regular sightings and underwater encounters with Pacific Leatherback turtles are guaranteed, Kei is slowly opening up to tourists.
These majestic creatures are rapidly disappearing. Over the last three years Scubazoo have been organising trips to Kei and even though they are long, hot and tiring days searching in small boats, the encounters were well worth it.
Being a remote location, hardly any tourists have visited Kei, liveaboards don’t even visit much and yet the marine life is stunning. The bay is full of jellyfish, spinner dolphins, melon-headed whales, bait balls, sailfish, schools of barracuda, needlefish and plenty of sea snakes on the secret seamount. And of course, several leatherback turtles providing unforgettable experiences.
