Great video for photographers and divers and very well done.

Skills are very important for divers and photographers especially, no one wants to be "that person" on a dive trip.

Take a moment to check out the video and please be considerate of the critters, your environment and other divers (photographers)

I have never tried to embed a video before so I am attaching a link as well, just in case.... :smiley2:

Having done lots of muck divng I wish they would make every new muck diver watch this video. Kicking is my pet pevee and it amazes me how many divers don't know how to do a modified frog kick or get off the bottom without stirring it up. This video doesn't really show those skills but at least it does make mention of them. You have to start somewhere and this video is a good start. Thanx DD for posting it.

They are giving free copies of this video to all Lembeh Strait dive operators. They have ALL agreed that the video is something that every guest should watch upon arrival. The video was done by Lembeh Resort, website is here: Lembeh Straits Muck and Critter Scuba Diving Manado Sulawesi (http://www.lembehresort.com/)

I believe that this or something close to it should be used by all dive op's almost anywhere.

excellent!! I agree all divers need a reminder. and i would rather be told something I already know than to not be told and make a mess!!

Great video. While watching I kept thinking "I need to show this to my fellow divers at Blue Heron Bridge."

Thanks for posting.

I'm insanely jealous of those buoyancy skills! I wish I could hover and remain horizontal rather than have feet that always want to sink.

put a little more weight in your tank pouches
