Beautiful, well worth waiting for. All of you brought back wonderful record of diving in the tropics. Looking at the video and the stills is the next best thing next to being there. And avoiding the 50= hour ordeal to get there. Thank you !

If it is any consolation gdog, I missed both encounters. I was the only diver to miss the BRO. I wasn’t as fun as when you missed it though, because I really enjoyed rubbing it in your face, no offense. lol

I feel better about missing all the blue ring octo action knowing that Gdog, too, hasn't seen one yet. Great video, Stephen. Cool crab!

Thank you for that disclaimer Val! I just don't believe they exist, it's fake news. But your video, on the other hand, is seriously fantastic! Wow! And I look very the human touch you put in at the start.. all the village kids. Kudos to you for a video well done!!!
