DIVING GALAPAGOS in Search of HAMMERHEADS + WHALE SHARKS! Are We TOO LATE? Harbors Unknown Ep. 84
Diving Galapagos in Search of Hammerheads and Whale Sharks! Are We TOO LATE? Harbors Unknown Ep. 84
Did you see our first Galapagos video?? Check it out here. https://youtu.be/DkgnsIy6Wyo
We are chasing after the untamed, the undiscovered, the undisturbed.
And it seems that we are a step behind human colonization of raw nature.
The last frontier, the depth of the ocean, the vast waters of the pacific, the far islands of the Galapagos, Wolf and Darwin, that is where we’re headed.
We are sailing on the Humboldt diving vessel with an eclectic group of underwater explorers, instructors, commercial divers, repeat offenders in these remote waters. Some of them have been here before, they travelled from different parts of the world all looking for the same thing, the approaching shadow of the whale sharks, the sun blocking shiver of hammerheads, the icy eyes of Galapagos sharks.
We are all seeking the ancestral connection with a world that once was.
But are we too late? There is a fleet of nearly 300 Chinese fishing vessels surrounding the natural park and its protected waters, a swarm of highly sophisticated fish extraction machines constantly following the migratory patterns of giant squids, the primary source of food for the hammerheads, but also harvesting other species which have been overfished and completely depleted in Chinese national waters. Watch now to see what we discover in these far flung waters.

If you're new here, Harbors Unknown is the story of two dreamers, Kristin & Fabio Potenti & our dog Yoda. We're a small family living aboard our catamaran, Wanderlust, sailing to Harbors Unknown. Exploring the world, connecting with people and places through the local cuisine, and showing how great food can be cooked on a boat with limited space and resources. Seeking to balance the desire to explore and travel to beautiful, remote locations while leaving no footprint, minimizing the Hawthorne effect of the observers who change the environment she or he observes.
We hope to inspire people and showcase the possibility of living an alternative lifestyle that provides freedom and fulfillment, all while keeping it real. Sharing the trials and tribulations of living off-grid, acknowledging the discomfort of detoxing from the modern world, finding pleasure in the subtleties of nature and joy in simplicity. Attempting to understand what makes the world tick and tock but also trying to gain a deeper comprehension of ourselves and identify what will satisfy that hunger for further exploration, for purpose. We have set off on our voyage sailing around the world, exploring the beautiful waters of South Florida, the Florida Keys, Bahamas, the US East Coast, and Panama.
