Had my first underwater sea lion encounter during this weekend when doing the Channel Islands diving trip with truth aquatics @truthaquatics and Wallins Dive Center @wallinsdivecenter It was amazing and memorable!!! Fun fact:
A Sea Lion is able to dive up to 600 feet for food in the water. They can remain under the water for up to 40 minutes before they must surface for air. This is accomplished by closing their nostrils together instinctively as they enter the water. They will remain closed until they need to take a breath.
They can swim at up to 25 miles per hour which most people don’t realize. Generally they only move about 10 miles per hour unless they feel threatened.
What do you do when you’re 19 days from your wedding day?? Scuba dive in the keys! 👌🧜♀️🧜♂️🤙 Seriously, spending time 45’ underwater with fish, lobsters, turtles and barracudas is actually rejuvenating for the weary wedding mind. 🐠🐠🐠 #scubavice#scubadive#floridakeys#dive#weddingprep

Did you know that we have seahorses on many of our five sites, from the tiny Pygmy seahorse to the larger thorny and common seahorses?
Important underwater meetings with friendly turtles 🐢!!! Indonesian turtles are for sure in the top 5 of the friendliest turtles (according to their nationalities) I’ve met so far. They chill, swim, take selfies with you and enjoy!!! There’s nothing more relaxing than seeing a turtle move slowly around the ocean. Moments, just moments 🙏🏾🙏🏾!! Good bye Raja Ampat, it was more than a pleasure!! Raja Ampat, Indonesia 🇮🇩 #chbaroundtheworld#wonderfulIndonesia#TripOfWonders —————————————— Reuniones importantes submarinas de estos días!! Con tortugas 🐢 muy amigables y tranquilas que están en mi top 5 de tortugas amigables de este mundo dependiendo de su nacionalidad. Nadas, parchan, se toman selfies con uno y siguen su camino. No hay nada más relajante que ver una tortuga 🐢 nadar lentamente, sin ningún afán por este mar infinito. Momentos para recordar 🙏🏾🙏🏾 Adiós Raja Ampat, Un placer, Indonesia 🇮🇩 .
