    Talking My Diving Vids from Bonaire (GoPro) - Octopus, Tarpon, Turtl

    My girlfriend and I went to Bonaire last week for an incredible week of diving. She had been there in the past, but this was my first time. This was my first time diving in the ocean since being certified for my OW course back in June of this year. Not only that, but it was also my first time ever leaving the US. I had a brilliant time. We went to Buddy Dive in Bonaire. What a beautiful country, from north to south. I highly recommend it for anyone who has not been!

    These are just a FEW of the vids I took. I apologize for any shaky video. Again, this was my first time ever in the ocean diving, so I am very new to the whole underwater world with currents and such. But I LOVE it and am officially addicted... damn.

    I'm using a GoPro Hero2 HD with the GoPro Dive housing, red filter, and shot in 720 HD with 60 FPS.

    Sea turtles - two vids of these magnificent creatures...

    Boca Slagbaai:


    Octopus - two vids as well of these guys:

    Night diving - inking us - I guess we were too close?

    Daytime off of Buddy Reef:

    The Hilma Hooker - 2 vids:

    Two moray eels:

    Last and BEST in my opinion. We went to the national park on the north end of the island for a cookout. The site is known as Boca Slagbaai. Great little bar with bar food, pink flamingos abound, and so much more. BEAUTIFUL location. Anyway, long story short... This was my last dive of the day. We hopped out into the water and headed north into the current. The current changed and REALLY started to suck us off of the reef. We kept our calm and were able to stay close. I saw this crazy cloud of bait fish.. known as a "bait ball" I was told. I swam toward it and hovered, taking video. The bait fish began to lift as Tarpon started to swim through. What an incredible sight - I can't believe what I saw and was able to record on video. It was such a fun, entertaining and incredible time. The video is here:

    yours are def better than my underwater go-pro vids from grand cayman, but i had no filter either...i have a decent one of me getting lunged at by a moray.

    the camera was also new to me, and i was too far away from a lot of stuff
