It's hard to make diving travel plans with the Covid-19 pandemic. In the world before the coronavirus, I used to go diving in the Philippines or Indonesia... In the world after, I dive in Brittany in green and cold waters.
In the Philippines, Balicasag Island is a popular dive site. You can observe a huge silvery school of trevallies, spinning near the reef. A fascinating sight...
Making bubbles along coral drop-offs overflowing with life and colour, what a delight! In the Philippines, Cabilao Island is a real little underwater gem.
Fancy Indonesia? I will take you diving in the waters of Sali Kecil, a remote little island on the west coast of Halmahera. Magnificent!
In the Philippines, it is THE mythical encounter that every diver dreams of: the whale shark, the largest fish in the world.
Fancy the big blue? Let's get in the water! I take you to the Red Sea for scuba diving, freediving and underwater photography....
They are beautiful, long-legged sharks! I loved watching and photographing them in the Red Sea. But I admit, they are also a little scared ...
In 2012, I discovered Rangiroa and its spectacular shark gathering. My dream: to go back there and also to dive in Fakarava, another legendary Polynesian spot to observe the sharks.
I crossed an ocean for them. Whale sharks gather in July-August off the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico.
A little video flashback: In October 2012, I went to meet sharks in the blue, off Rangiroa, in Polynesia.
Borneo is adventure! I saw Kakaban Island and its mysterious jellyfish lake. I even went back to bathe there. The proof in video.
March 2013. Bangka Island, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. My new home, for a few days, is called Coral Eye. What a beautiful name!
Nothing is more annoying to photograph than a seahorse-pygmy. Too small. Too much camouflaged. Too shy. But his delicate plastic is worth a few efforts.
Return to diving in Indonesia ... A haunting desire, which tormented me all winter! So, in mid-March, I flew to Halmahera and Weda Bay.
I'm getting tons of emails asking me for information about Raja Ampat ! So I gathered everything in one single post. But be aware, a trip to Raja Ampat requires you to behave as a respectful and responsible visitor. Tourism, which is booming in the region, is endangering one of the world's most magnificent reservoirs of biodiversity.
In Rangiroa, Polynesia, dolphins love to play underwater with divers! Video demonstration in the Tiputa pass.
Take photos under water, I love it. But palmer, much less. I realized this well by diving in Alor, Indonesia.
A new little film, for lovers of mantas rays ... I finally got down to editing my videos, brought back from Sangalaki! This small Indonesian island, located off Borneo, is part of the archipelago of Derawan, where I stayed for ten days last July.
I left Derawan and its archipelago today. I realized this dream that I had since the beginning of this Indonesian trip to Borneo: swim with rays-mantas, in the waters of Sangalaki!
