What’s more fun than blowing perfect air rings underwater? If you’re a dolphin, that would be playing with the air rings you just made. Read the feature Not Winging It, But Ringing It on NPR and then watch the video below. Super cute, amiright?

Amazing underwater video of Humpback Whale migration. WOW!

Posted on January 30th, 2013

In the last couple of weeks, two amazing videos were captured that show some really interesting dolphin behavior.

The following clip shows a massive “dolphin stampede” witnessed by tourists aboard a whale-watching ship off the coast of California.

This next video only features one dolphin, but I think it is even more amazing. The unfortunate creature has some fishing line and a hook stuck around its fin. The line is twisted around so that it is restricting its movement. The dolphin approaches a group of scuba divers, apparently seeking their help. Watch the patient dolphin as one of the divers removes the line.

We are lucky to be able to see dolphins frequently when we visit the coast here in Florida, but I’ve never witnessed anything like either of these spectacles, either above water or below. Have you ever dived with dolphins, or seen a dolphin stampede?

Ship Wreck from civil war
Ship Wreck from civil war by amanderson2

New species of crabs were among the discoveries recently made by an underwater robotic vehicle sent to study the icy cold waters of the Southern Ocean. The expedition was a collaboration between the British Antarctic Survey and two universities.

The Civil War wreck USS Narcissus will become an underwater preserve in Florida. The tugboat wreck lies in 15 feet of water.

A diver in Seminole County, Florida, found a 1930’s-era class ring while diving with a metal detector. He managed to track down the owner and return the ring to the owner’s family.

An amusing video of underwater ice fishing scuba divers surfaced early in January.
