This was one of those nights that we are reminded why we all do this for a living, and the reasons being, we truly love diving. Some days our passion may be put in the back seat, but when it comes down to it, we just truly love being underwater. I hope everyone enjoys this video, and I hope it does the event justice. A co-worker and friend of mine was born, raised, and used to work as a diver in Columbia. There he had a bunch of Marine Biologist friends who were very interested in the spawning of coral. So of course we used his input to really pin point the time of the spawn.
