Exploring a reef-encased shipwreck.
Being surrounded by swarms of little fishies
The Netherlands gets back on its feet after WWII.
A celebration of the people and the sea life of the Phillipines. All sorts of underwater fish are captured, including great flocking swarms of sardines.

This writer started a kickstarter project to fund a writing project where she'll spend 324 days at sea on a sailing ship.
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 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.
An interesting kickstarter project that talks about naval history and the ecology of whales. It looks like it has already been successful and has an hour-long movie to show.

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.
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.

Effect of debris on sea life. Amazing is the amount if discarded nets that wash up on shore. Brief clips of some stunning underwater footage, too.

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.
