WONDERS OF SIPADAN – A short film summarising 8 dives in SIPADAN, one of the best diving spot in the world. An incredible underwater world full of marine life the way I had never experienced it before, A truly life-changing 2 days and I am glad I can share the wonders of our marine life online. The ocean and its inhabitants are irreplaceable, provides immeasurable ecosystem services and we need to do all in our power to protect it.

SIPADAN BARRACUDA TORNADO

I was lucky enough to see thousands of barracudas swim around us and form these barracuda tornadoes, an event that Sipadan is known for.

There was not enough turtles to create a tornado but definitively more than I have ever seen in a day in my life! Below are a few images of green turtles, in the video you can see a hawksbill turtle as well.

The sheer amount of individuals in the jackfish schools was staggering, a never-ending procession.

Big Thanks to Skip, Simon and Dionne for being amazing dive guides. This dive trip was a prize I won while attending the awesome UNDERWATER TOUR 2018 in Brisbane.
