Episode  8: Sea Creatures, Great White, USS Macon

This episode explores the wonderful array of smaller sea creatures that emerge at night. The dive explores Slugs, Sea Cucumbers, Juvenile Cuttles and many other interesting fish. The Great White Shark is perhaps the most feared animal in the sea; so we travel to Neptune Island, off the South Australian Coast, to watch divers enclosed in cages attract sharks in the depths of the water. The clear blue waters of the island offer divers fantastic photographic opportunities and a close-up look at the ultimate ocean predator. The famous airship USS Macon was lost in 1935 offshore of Point Sur, California; the underwater discovery of the airship occurred in June of 1990; the wreckage creates opportunity to study the relatively undisturbed archaeological remnants of a unique period of U.S. aviation history. Lastly, respect for sharks is the topic covered in this PADI Seal segment. 2013 IJS 30 min.
