Giant Pacific Manta Rays underwater at San Benedicto Island (Islas Revillagigedos), Baja California, Mexico by Turner Forte Photography

June 17th, 2011

Giant Pacific Manta Rays are beautiful creatures that can be found through out the Seaof Cortez and waters off many of the islands .  They glide through the ocean with grace and never fail to intrigue.  Down in the Revillagigedo Islands with Nautilus Explorer, we saw a few and I captured them to show you here:

World In Focus Contest Winner

February 6th, 2008

One of our images placed in the Extreme Exploration category in the World in Focus contest. The contest is sponsered by PDN and National Geographic Traveler. This was shot at Bear Glacier in Alaska and it was an amazing trip! We kayaked and camped for 3 days at the mouth of the glacier. The glaciers were larger than a 3 story building and the one in this shot was actually a cavern in an iceberg.  You can see a hole melted, melt water dripping, and the sun beaming through. I don’t know if it is still on the shelves, but this shot was also in the December/January issue of National Geographic Adventure.  You can find more photos from this trip on our stock site!
