waterinspired Amazing #dolphin photo from @fredbuyle πŸ“·πŸ¬πŸ¬πŸ¬πŸ¬πŸ¬πŸ¬πŸ¬πŸ¬πŸ¬ ・・・ bottlenose dolphins hunting in the sand. they use their sonars to find fishes hidden in the sand. they then can catch them as deep as half a meter under burying their heads propelling themselves with their powerful tails. they didn't care much about us being there! #dolphins #dolphin #bottlenosedolphin #lunchtime #ostrich #whitesand #freediver #freediving #underwaterphotography #wildlifephotography #bimini #bahamas #dolphinsdaily

Post from cofounder @juansharks ・・・ this is a perfect example to show that #greatwhitesharks #whitesharks really don’t see humans a food source. also why it’s not a good idea to dive in bad visibility, they rely on eye sight too and this guy does look like a seal. have to give the shark credit he would’ve been the easiest meal. #apexpredatornotmonster #helpsavesharks #savetheocean repost from #denisdempsey and @whitesharkvideo #amazing #whitesharkbumpsdiver #whitesharkbadvis #whitesharkwithdiver #biggreatwhiteshark #whitesharkandabalonediver not a #sharkattack #instagood #videooftheday #apexpredatornotmonster #cagethefear

waterinspired Powerful image by @juansharks πŸ’ͺ🏽🦈 of @mermaid_kayleigh and #roxythetigershark on a #pelagicdive with @oceanramsey & crew of @oneoceandiving! here you can see roxy girl has a long and heavy rope stuck in her mouth and often ingesting it into her gills as well. abandoned or lost fishing gear is one of the most prevalent marine animal entanglement causes affecting a variety of species of marine life around the globe. from huge free drifting nets in the open sea to smaller fishing line and lead on the reef it affects the health of our entire ocean! it doesn’t stop there either. plastic bags, utensils, straws, toothbrushes, and the micro plastics is all breaks down into is consumed by fish, turtles, monk seals, sea birds and other marine life which leads to suffocation or starvation. there is good news though, we can #turnthetide and #makeadifference with our choices every single day. you can reduce your use of #singleuseplastic by using #reusable items like we sell @oneoceandesigns! or when you visit a beach, lake, river, or even local park you can pick up any rubbish you can as most times it all leads back to the #ocean no matter how land locked you are. if you live on #oahu please join our amazing group of #seasters for a reef and #beachcleanup at #chinawalls from 12-3! bring your own dive gear & knife or scissors to cut the line and lead off of the #reef. cant wait to see you all out there helping us to #savetheocean! (click on the hashtag #roxythetigershark to see more images by @juansharks of the #sharkentanglement)

waterinspired #whatliesbeneath by @oceanramsey & @juansharks πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆ ・・・ “it’s not what’s on the outside, but what’s on the inside that matters the most.” we know less about the ocean “inner space” than we do about outter space. our daily actions and choices around the ocean affect the life within. take a deeper look, beyond the surface, what you will find is more than words can describe. #savetheocean #savtheplanet there is no 2nd #earth #onechance make an #impact with your time #respect #nature #helpsavesharks #divedeep #inside #ocean #oneocean #oneoceandiving #conservation #research #education @oneoceandiving @oneoceanresearch @oneoceanconservation @oneoceansharks @oneoceandesigns @oneoceanhawaii @oneoceanglobal @waterinspired @oneoceaninspired @oneoceaneducation chance to win a free trip out with #oneoceandiving just enter your name when you turn in a bag of debris at the next big reef and #beachcleanup happening at #chinawalls in #hawaiikai dec 9th see oneoceanconservation.org for details #learnaboutsharks #savesharks #sharkresearch #marinebiology #marinescience #oahu #northshore #manō

waterinspired Mahalo @keiko_conservation for the conscious consumer info! ・・・ we love this art from the inspiring @francescaapage! do you know where your seafood comes from? #whatsyourbycatch? "100 millions sharks. thats how many are caught and killed every year in nets or on fishing lines. it’s called bycatch and it is killing ocean life, no blue, no green. #artforchange." 🌊 some of the worst places to buy seafood are #kroger (@krogerco #krogercouponing) #albertsons (@albertsons) #winco (@wincofoods) #southeasterngrocers #roundys #publix (@publix) #aandp #savemart (@savemart) #walmart (@walmart) #costco (@costco @costcodeals) #wakefern. get the #seafoodwatch app and avoid #shrimp #mexicanshrimp #ahi #snapper #redsnapper #salmon #farmedsalmon #longline #tuna #tunasandwich. also, there's no such thing as "#dolphinsafe" tuna unless you're catching it yourself. #keikoconservation #francescapage

@oneoceandiving 🦈 meets @littleoceantours 🐒 ・・・ it is rare here in hawaii to see green sea turtles interacting with galapagos and sandbar sharks. this honu is floating a few miles offshore at @oneoceandiving aggregate site. sharks are extremely curious animals and intrigued by the surface activity that the honu is creating. you can see the sharks coming in closer to check out the honu as a point of interest but leave it alone once they realize what it is. #tigersharksonly πŸ’πŸ’™πŸ¦ˆ video taken by @mermaid_kayleigh #savesharks #honu #greenseaturtle #oneocean #turtles #hawaiian

waterinspired Missing our buddy and great photographer @jaymgreiner πŸ–€πŸ“·πŸŒŠ #wave #seeyousoon #notgoodbye ・・・ it covers #twothirds of our planet. each wave contributues to an enduring pattern of rhythms perfectly formed, each serving a purpose. if you think about it, the content of a wave formation is quite incredible; the textures, the lines of symmetry, and the power generated without our influence or control. these moments happen so fast, that without a camera, are hard to appreciate. a perspective captured in tahiti // mo'orea.
