A Six-Minute Video of Stuff we Saw in the Galapagos Islands.

Hope you enjoy this little video of stuff we saw in the Galapagos Islands.

Things to note:

– Iguana spit as an aggressive gesture but also as a way to limit the salt content of their bodies.
– The two fins moving together through the water belong to a giant manta ray.
– The fluffy birds at the start are little fluffy baby boobies.
– Don’t miss Tania squeaking and swimming away right at the end when she realises she’s swimming over five sharks!

  1. Wow, Eat your heart out Hans & Lottie Hass. Davd Attenborough natural history, plus music and humour! A triumph of modern film making. Have you got an underwater camera? How did you get the salamander thing to look at you?…………………………..Did George do this? Aunty Alison

    • Thanks, Ali, extremely flattered you might think George did it! Yes, got a camera called a GoPro in a plastic transparent box that works under water (but not that well). We took lots of film of iguanas and a couple of them eventually turned their heads by chance. x

  2. Did George do this? Hell no! I’m out of a job by the looks of it… there are new videographers in town. Great work guys! Especially enjoyed the ‘fish’ track at the end and the sealion blinking in time with the chilled out cymbals. Lovely video. Happy days. THANK YOU x

    • Thanks guys! Well, I hadn’t even noticed about the sealion and the cymbals but… er… yes, it was deliberate, oh yes. Very impressed to see you’ve got your own blog, George. It’s a little bit short of… erm… posts, but hey, very good start.

  3. Fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish fish. Fish. Was my favourite bit too.

  4. Wow, incredible stuff, esp loved the sealions :o) Nice music too.

  5. you lucky buggers 🙂

    I noticed the sealion blinking to the beat as well. Bravo.

  6. In order to sync the music for this video, I gave an iPod to each and every subject and played the exact music at the time that I intended to put over the video later. Clever, huh? That’ll explain the sealion blinking.
