We had an amazing 2 weeks during our vacation in Australia: we especially loved the rainforests, Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, and the amazing animals! Australia had some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving we’ve ever experienced; this might be one of the best places in the world to snorkel. We saw so many varieties of fish, sharks, sting rays, corals, whales, crocodiles, koalas, kangaroos, birds, caves, and more. On land, the beaches and scenery were breathtaking. The rainforests was also so lush. And we really loved Sydney! We hope you enjoy this video of our 2 weeks down under in 4k!
Our week of snorkeling and diving in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia was fantastic! So many underwater wonders in the coral reef. This is our snorkel, scuba, and on-ship footage. This was one of our bucket list dream “things to do” and we had an amazing time. We did multiple dives at several dive spots. We started at a Ribbon Reef, then a couple of other spots, and another Ribbon Reef. We hope you enjoy this video of our snorkeling and scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia in 4K! We have other videos with just our snorkeling or just our scuba diving as well if you want to compare the experiences!
You can see (and smell) lots of sulfur dioxide gas and steam coming out of vents at Volcanoes National Park.
You can see lots of sulfur dioxide gas coming out of the summit crater / caldera of the Kilauea volcano. The camera’s zoom allowed me to get a really close view in 4K video.
Who new that beaches could have black sand! This one is on the Big Island of Hawaii. It’s complete with palm trees and everything.
Amazing snorkeling at the Captain Cook Monument in Kealakekua Bay (Kona, Hawaii). My video shows just some of the many colorful fish in the coral reef that make this is one of the most beautiful snorkeling sites in the world. You can read the detailed account here.
There was a school of yellow tangs at the coral reef near the Captain Cook Monument in Kealakekua Bay (Kona, Hawaii).
This big octopus changed colors a few times to try to camouflage itself in the coral reef near the Captain Cook monument in Kealakekua Bay (Kona, Hawaii). It was quite big so I’m glad it didn’t decide to swim anywhere near me! It was amazing to witness this in nature.
