This is the first day of a 2-day (weekend) trip to the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary in the Gulf of Mexico. (Day 2 is here: 🤍 Around 30 of us travelled to this location aboard the M/V Fling, sleeping aboard her Friday night and waking up at the reef and ready to dive Saturday morning! I did four fabulous dives this day: 00:00:00 A stroll around the exterior decks of the M/V Fling 00:02:52 Dive 1: West Flower Gardens #1 00:36:19 Dive 2: West Flower Gardens #1 00:53:50 Surface View of Disused Oil Rig (dive site) 00:54:43 Dive 3: Oil Rig High Island A-376B 01:21:24 Dive 4: East Flower Gardens #4 01:41:58 Sea Turtle!! The weather was perfect - sunny with calm seas and with air temperatures in the low 80's °F. The water was 80 °F at the bottom - 75 to 80 feet down! The water was also lovely and clear I could see the fish at the bottom from the boat on the surface! Camera Equipment used: GoPro 10 (Dives 1 and 2), GoPro 9 (Dives 3 and 4), both with an Enduro battery. For light I used a bigblue VL4200P on my wrist. Shot at 4k, 60fps with maximum stabilization. I had to switch cameras from the 10 to my backup 9 after the first two dives as the GoPro 10 overheated after 30 minutes or so of continuous operation underwater and this was not enough to complete the dives! The 9 did not overheat so I used that the rest of the trip.
My buddies Alex Fogg, Joe Kistel and I had been filming and collecting lionfish at various sites in the Gulf southwest of St. George Island FL. We had been taking turns with Alex and Joe diving together while I dove solo. This was my third and final dive of the day on a man-made structure in 93' feet of water approximately 22 miles due south of St. Vincent Island. The shark enters the camera's field of view at 3:48 and a moment later catches my eye. I instantly recognized it as great white and you can faintly hear me say "Oh my God". I estimate the fish was 35' or so below me. It spooked me in that it had approached from behind and had already passed me when I saw it. I watched until it swam out of sight then re-cocked my speargun which I usually unload when heading back to the boat as a safety precaution. I glanced around looking for the shark and up at the boat to make sure the dive ladder was indeed down. I noticed a small lionfish had escaped from my bag and was swimming down and you can hear me say "oh no". The bag of lionfish was positively buoyant and it drifted into me dragging the stringer of mangroves with it. I moved it out of the way and kept scanning the water column below. My first two dives had been to 120' and I had pushed this dive at 93' to my limit of bottom time. I needed to do this safety stop to avoid the bends, so I stayed where I was while my computer counted down the required 3 minutes. I took another quick look at my boat and another at my computer which shows me at 15' below the surface. Most sharks have a tendency to come back for another look and that's exactly what this one did. Fortunately, I was looking in the general direction when I faintly saw something that caught my eye. It was the shark about 40' away coming straight at me from below. I've had countless encounters with bulls, sandbars and a few tigers and hammerheads. Over the years, I've learned the best defense is to go on the offense and let them see that I'm not intimidated. Turning and running could trigger the predator/prey instinct, so I stood my ground aiming my speargun at its head. For a second I figured this was it and was prepared to fend it off with my gun like I have done countless times before with curious or aggressive sharks. Fortunately, for whatever reason, this one turned at about 15' away and gave me a full profile view. I say "Oh my God" again and then let out a loud sigh of relief when he turns again and heads back down. I watched until it disappeared again then decided to take my chances with decompression sickness rather than a third visit from the shark, so I skipped the remaining 2 minutes of wait time and headed to the surface and safety of the boat. I estimate the shark was 9-10' long and at no time did it seem aggressive or anything other than curious. I'm a charter captain and I had a juvenile great white around 12' long circle my boat last year about 30 miles out around the same time the tagged great white shark named Katherine was being tracked in the Northern Gulf. I had heard other reports of random sightings and saw the news reports of the great white caught off the beach in Panama City so I knew great whites come into the Gulf. This was the first one I've ever seen while diving and this experience will make me reconsider diving in murky water with limited visibility. I'm glad we both went our separate ways fully intact and healthy, but I hope I never have to experience another encounter like that again.

This is a dive on a natural spring located in 100 feet of water. This spring is located approximately 30 miles SW of Anna Maria Island. I don't know the name of the spring or the depth. A thermocline prevents my sonar from seeing the bottom. With side scan I have recorded depths of 170 feet, but I am sure it is deeper.
This is my eighth dive of a four-day scuba-diving trip to the Gulf of Mexico, and the second and the best dive on oil platform HI 376-A (which was not manned at the time we were diving it). We dropped to around 30 feet and circles the structure until we needed to come back up, enjoying countless thousands of fish while we did! For me, this was the most fun dive I've ever done!

On a four-day trip aboard the MV Fling out of Freeport, Texas my buddy and I dived an un-manned Oil Platform (HI 376 A). The weather was perfect, and the air and water were both in the 80's. The Platform is sat on the bottom of the ocean - around 300 feet deep. We dropped to just around 35 feet where it was warm and light, and swam all around the under-structure of the platform, enjoying the vast numbers of wildlife that call this structure home! One of the most fun dives I have ever done :-D
Dive with me on this oil rig over 100 miles off of the coast of Texas in crystal clear water amongst a variety of wildlife and predators. This dive is most of everyone's favorite on the trip that ride the live aboard dive boat "MV Fling" out to the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary.
We had a great day diving in the Gulf of Mexico. We headed out of the Pensacola pass and dove on the Avocet, a massive ship scuttled in the early 90s. We also hit a battle tank and the San Pablo Russian freighter.

Diving I-10 Bridge Rubble from the old Escambia Bay Bridge from Pensacola, Florida. It was destroyed partly by hurricane Ivan and the rubble was brought out to about 6 sites here in the Gulf of Mexico. It was pretty awesome seeing the bridge underwater, and in many places you could still see the road markings. The Down Under Dive charter brought us out for this dive, amazing company and boat, very professional and friendly. Royalty Free Music Artist: THBD Track: Ocean Genre: Chill House

What kind of habitat supports offshore reef fish species? In this very special episode of Head First Fishing, we link up with " I'm No Aussie Dive and Fishing". Mr. Craig takes us to some beautiful examples of west coast Florida natural live bottom reefs and ledges. These places were loaded with life. It was amazing to see all the different species of fish that live down there. The state of florida abounds with great diving opportunities no matter where you are. East or West Coast there are great dives to be done. West Central and South West Florida have some incredible natural reef habitat that is home to many different types of sea creatures. From grouper, snapper, amberjack, hogfish, and triggerfish, to sea turtles, manta rays, whale sharks, lobsters, and more! It's a diver's paradise down there as you cruise along the natural rocky outcrops and coral reefs. Offshore Tampa Bay is home to numerous wrecks and reefs that provide excellent diving opportunity, hosting a large dive and spearfishing community. In this episode I also give you a few tips on what you should be looking for when searching for fishing spots offshore.
