Night Dive in Raja Ampat

Hi! This video is mostly about marine life that becomes active at night in Raja Ampat, Indonesia. In the beginning of this video I captured a White-Spotted Puffer and a pair of Moorish Idol’s trying to find a place to sleep as the sun sets - after that, the rest is all night life.

I shot this using a Gopro 4 Silver (1080P, 60fps, -0.5EV) with a Backscatter Filters and a Sealife video strobes. Edited with FCPX. youtu.be/Me4quIKtbPs

Nice video. I’m heading to Thailand in less than a month to dive...love south east Asian diving.

Thailand is on my list. Are you diving off a liveaboard or land based?

I am doing a liveaboard part of the time (The Junk) and then heading over to Koh Lanta to dive Red Rock and Purple Rock (off a boat...it’s roughly a 2 hr boat ride). I’ll be there two weeks, so I’m pretty excited. I’ll give a report when I get back, and I’ll be sure to add images on here too.

Amazing video! I think the spotted box crab was my favorite. Very cool.

My friends and I were talking about ’The Junk’ over the week for a potential quick dive holiday next year. Plus, we all like how it was featured in "The Man with the Golden Gun". Hope you have a great trip!!!

Thanks! Agreed, the box crab was great. I could watch it all night.
