Expedition Gombessa!

And talking of Laurent.

Tetamanu was Expedition Gombessa 2.
Gombessa 1 was about filming the Coelacanth in South Africa, so far only done from subs or via ROVs. Here's the documentary - and should you speak French, please also watch the making of with Laurent!

Amazing video. However, Richard Pyle and National Geographic have also filmed them using rebreathers

Aaaah yes - shorts and short-sleeved shirt = undoubtedly Richard! :)

We pride ourselves in being the only site where the great man has ever acquiesced to donning long-sleeved garb!

What?! The waters of Fiji were too much?? Amazing!

Shark diving procedures - long dark garb! :)
