Wakatobi Resort and Pelagian Dive Yacht
Go full screen with this video to experience one of the planet’s most pristine and vibrant coral environments. We’ll start from Wakatobi Resort’s palm-fringed beach and take a short boat ride to reefs teeming with life. After gliding along the sunlit top of the reef—which is also perfect for snorkelers—we’ll drop over the edge where more discoveries await. Then, we’ll board a luxury dive yacht known as the Pelagian for a cruise to more distant reefs through Indonesia’s Wakatobi Archipelago. Want even more? Then come to visit us in person. www.wakatobi.com

The diving around the islands of Sipadan, Mabul, and Kapalai off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia on the island of Borneo is some of the best in the world. Large schools of barracuda, jacks, bump head parrot fish, turtles, and sharks are just a few of some of the larger marine life seen on almost every dive!
British Columbia is home to some of the most unique diving in the world. Shipwrecks, artificial reefs, ancient sponge bioherms, diverse marine life, canyons, walls, reefs, sea lions… there’s more to explore in British Columbia, Canada, than you may realize.

Galápagos Marine Sanctuary
Great news for sharks! Ecuador has created a new no-fishing zone in the Galapagos Islands. When we protect sharks we protect whole ecosystem!
The government of Ecuador today announced the creation of marine sanctuary and 21 conservation areas in the Galápagos islands, full protecting the largest biomass of sharks on the planet. The area protected encompasses over 47,000 square kilometers — roughly one third of the waters around the archipelago from fishing and other extra active industries.
In December of 2015, National Geographic’s Pristine Seas team of international scientists and filmmakers, in collaboration with the Galápagos National Park and the Darwin Research Station, surveyed and documented the waters around the islands.

The short film, The Not So Silent World, combines new techniques with a fresh perspective on the post-production process. It’s not just about the acquisition of the image, it is how the images are packaged and presented that have the most impact on the viewer. Through an untraditional approach to editing and the addition of sound effects, this film takes you into “the muck” like never before.

On a expedition to Indonesia‘s Cendrawasih Bay, Conservation International’s Mark Erdmann learned how whale sharks often congregate around bagan (lift net) fishing platforms to eat the small silverside baitfish that the fishers are targeting. The sharks have also learned how to “suck” the fish out of holes in the nets!
Everyone who comes to Ambon to dive, not surprisingly, wants to see the Psychedelic Frogfish, Histiophryne psychedelica. And it’s a critter we would love to show everyone too.
BBC just revealed the trailer for “Planet Earth II,” the sequel to the amazing, high-definition documentary series that covered 11 different habitats. And by the looks of it, “Planet Earth II” is shaping up to be even more mind-blowing than the original.
