The underwater world never ceases to amaze us. It’s one place that us humans only have the most limited of access to. There are unknowns, and mysteries in the oceans that we can only dream of. So it’s no water that snorkeling and diving are such other worldly experiences.
We went snorkeling every day we were in the Maldives. It’s no wonder, all you need to do is simply walk off the beach so find yourself in some pretty amazing conditions, surrounded by beautiful creatures which are so unlike ourselves. The best snorkeling off of the island of Keyodhoo is only a short boat ride away, and the guys at Jupiter Sunrise Lodge were eager to show us all their favourite spots. We spent the best part of every day, going from snorkeling spot to snorkeling spot. As we went from one location to another, the guys would trawl for fish off the end of the boat (more about fishing in the Maldives in a later post), and Jacob slept to the relaxing vibration of the motor.
We didn’t have the best of visibility during our trip, high winds caused the water to mix and churn, but we still got to see a bunch of amazing creatures. Highlights of our snorkeling adventures included eels, white tipped reef sharks, a manta ray, turtles, and even a sneaky octopus.
Below is Dan’s first full GoPro video project. This video is compiled of footage from our five night stay with Jupiter Sunrise.
