I've been very lazy recently but I've started to edit all my footage from our March trip to Bonaire and Galapagos. Heres a compilation of just the sealion shots. They were the most fun and memorable experience of the trip. There are some stills (videograbs) on my blog.

As you can see from the first shot of a sealion, the cold currents are random and hazily visible, which can mess up your vid shootin. I wore a 3mm shortie on top of a 3mm long...but then I'm a Scotsman. Most people wear semi-dry 8mms or drysuits. The currents and thermoclines can be vicious! 1 minute youre thinking "this is nice, I could have worn a 3mm" the next its "geez, I want to end ,the dive its too cold!"

But the great wildlife makes it all worth it! speshally the sealions.
