The world beneath the waves is a remarkable place. It contains some of the world’s strangest creatures, and also some of its most magnificent.

Whale song is an entrancing and beautiful phenomenon, and one that went unheard until the 1960’s!

Now, with the help of the DeepFlight Submersible and a fleet of GoPros, we are able to get up close with these remarkable creatures as they sing their hearts out.

We join two of the first explorers,Graham Hawkes and his co-pilot Lee Behel, to search for, and sit with, humpback whales as they call at in the ocean’s depths.

This video is a beautiful glimpse at exploration’s remarkable frontiers and a majestic adventure beneath the waves…

We live on a truly remarkable planet!

Technology is taking us places we never dreamed, to experience and explore some of the planet’s most remarkable ecosystems.

These new perspectives are not just literal. They are shifting our understanding of the world around us. Our place within it. Our sense of wonder at it.

Despite what we hear daily on the news, we live on a remarkable planet. We can choose to hear that message! We can celebrate the expansion of our knowledge. We can revel in the magnificent people and places we live beside. And we can be humbled by our place in the cosmos.

As a species, we have the unique privilege of sharing our collective experience on this planet. Perhaps if we drew from that place of commonality instead of the things that divide us, we could better appreciate where we are, what we have, and where we are headed.

Stay beautiful & keep laughing!
