My father actually made a short documentary about the wildlife there - both above and below the waterline - in the 80s with Rick Rosenthal. Ever since seeing that film I've been curious about putting together a trip there and possibly continuing on with some more documentation. I'd be stoked to see any video that it sounds like you guys may have shot.
