3rd Place Blackwater

Galice Hoarau

"Juvenile Sailfish"


Galice Hoarau won a 7 or 8 nights liveaboard trip for two in Raja Ampat or Komodo


The Story: We found this juvenile sailfish during a blackwater dive between the islands of Siladen and Bunaken. The very deep water between the islands makes it a great place for the pelagic and deep sea creatures rising close to the surface after sunset. This sailfish was very curious and allowed me to take several photos before before diving back into the depth!
