Have you ever wanted to look for sunken treasure on a Spanish shipwreck? Would you like to stay warm and dry while scuba diving in the wintertime? Ever wonder what that sea lion is thinking or how to tell what kind of fish you just saw? Would you like to see what creatures come out at night or watch a sleeping parrotfish make itself a cocoon? Perhaps you’re wondering how it feels to look up to the surface from 100 feet below or maybe you’re looking for tips and tricks on how to get that perfect underwater picture.
