Description:

1000 - From Cocos to Malpelo to Panama

A Trip on the Inula from Golfito to Cocos to Malpelo to Panama and back to Golfito. 1000 sea miles and 180 h of crossing...
In Cocos we had a tigershark and the classic night dive at Manulita south. The rest was disappointing. Baja Alcyone was a waste of time.
Malpelo was rough, 3 knots of current and rainy. Conditions for filming were challenging. So, a few shots in the film are proof only, sorry. Because of the rough sea we could not dive Baja Suani. El Sahara/La Nevera and Altair de Virginia were nice. 4 times Altair with Dräger Dolphin ended up in close encounters with hammerheads. The school of silkies was around Malpelo at this time. Malpelo still is my favorite dive site.
The Hannibal Banks in Panama were very good, too. Unfortunately, the water was to murky too get the impressive school of hammerheads with the camera. Arvid had a new dive site which was quite attraktive because of some grey reef sharks and nice little stuff. Narration is missing because of a permanent lack of time....

    Cocos was boring but the current brought us some nice encounters in Malpelo :-)

    Der Pep gehört ja zur Einrichtung :-) Witzig, die Tauchwelt ist echt klein.

    Ups. Beim Encodieren geht doch immer mal was verloren. Bei manchen Aufnahmen ist es so schwarz, man erkennt gar nichts mehr. Mhhh.

    Danke. Ich bin selbst gar nicht so zufrieden :-) Da war so viel verwackeltes dabei, Schärfepumpen, etc. Ich habe dieses mal auch verwackeltes dazu genommen, weil es ein bisschen zeigt, wie die Bedingungen waren.
    Die Hammerhaie waren aber cool. Alle nahen Sichtungen mit Rebreather. Das macht echt immer wieder einen Unterschied.
