Dive expedition to the Guaitecas / Chonos Islands

Just recently came back from our 2 week dive expedition to the large island group south from Chiloe. This is all part of the large ongoing project of the Huinay Station to increase the knowledge about the marine benthic fauna of the Chilean Patagonia. These trips have been regularly going on for many years and I myself already had the luck to partake in three of them.
This time we went around the channels and fiords on board of a nice sail boat, the SAOIRSE (means freedom in Gaelic). Beautiful experience, with a great team and crew!!

Here is one of my favorite underwater pictures I took. Don’t ask me what type of fish it is. We were mainly focusing on invertebrates :D
