Surfing and vactioning in Hawaii. Does not appear to portray any actual anemones.

Friends and Anemones from Casey Latiolais on Vimeo.


Contains some footage of an amphibious assault during WWII. As far as I can tell, it's about the Battle of the Scheldt, as it mentions "Flushing" in the Netherlands.

Chasing monsters! A local spearfishing tale!

This is a video of a kickstarter project about spearfishing. I'm not sure what I think about the sport of spearfishing, but this clip contains some fascinating footage where a guy spears a medium-sized fish and a gigantic one suddenly appears to steal it away.

Cliff Diving, 2012

Cliff Diving in Presqu'île de Giens, France. The audacity of these youth is amazing. I cannot imagine something like this taking place in the US. A few degrees to the left or right and SPLAT.

Snorkeling at Gun Beach, Guam

It took me a while to identify these black and white fish, but I eventually figured out that they are Sergeant Majors. .

Mola Mola - One of my first encounters with these gentle giants...

I would imagine if you were a shark, you'd like these things like potato chips. I read that the giant ocean sunfish eats jellyfish.

Foamy ocean

Lots and lots of foam in the waves. As a kid, I was grossed out when the ocean got too foamy. Wikipedia says that it is "created by the agitation of seawater, particularly when it contains higher concentrations of dissolved organic matter (including proteins, lignins, and lipids) derived from sources such as the offshore breakdown of algal blooms." So yeah, ick.

Similan Diving: an Amazing Octopus

An encounter with the octopus in Thailand. Amazing all the changes it goes through, including texture and spots. At first, it almost looks like it's trying to camouflage with the diver's leg.
