#turtle #ocean #crab #bubblevision #Pets & Animals
"Reef Life of the Andaman" is a documentary of the marine life of Thailand and Burma (Myanmar). It is available on DVD at https://www.amazon.com/shop/bubblevision
Scuba diving more than 1000 times from the coral reefs and underwater pinnacles of Thailand's Similan Islands, Phuket, Phi Phi Island and Hin Daeng, to Myanmar's Mergui Archipelago and Burma Banks, I encountered everything from manta rays to seahorses, whale sharks to shipwrecks. The 116-minute film features descriptions of 213 different marine species including more than 100 tropical fish, along with sharks, rays, moray eels, crabs, lobsters, shrimps, sea slugs, cuttlefish, squid, octopus, turtles, sea snakes, starfish, sea cucumbers, corals, worms etc..
This marine biology documentary provides an overview of Indian Ocean aquatic life.

Outstanding old-school documentary. No dramatizations, no faking, no humans doing dumb stuff, no action-movie soundtrack. Just the animals being shown in their habitat, a narrator and a soothing background music... Awesome.

I grew up watching Jacques Cousteau and I gotta say your YouTube Channel is top notch! (IMO)

One of the best documentaries I’ve seen on YouTube if not the best. I really enjoyed this video, thank you for the upload.

Many documentaries are around 50 minutes long and they can often feel like they're too long. This one is nearly 2 hours long, yet it's so good that it doesn't feel long enough!

I'm reading some complaints about the music accompanying the video. Personally, I like it. It's quite relaxing.

I loved the footage of the whale shark! Many years ago, a friend had a spiritual experience with a whale shark: she was guest on a shrimping boat owned by a family member. A whale shark swam up beside the shrimp boat, seeming curious. The shark was HUGE, longer than the boat. My friend was so taken by the nearness of the shark and leaned over for a better look. The shark rolled slightly to see her better. The made eye contact, just a couple of feet apart. My friend said it was like making eye contact w another intelligent being. She said time seemed to stand still and she got goosebumps! Glowing Bio-luminescent algae on the shark's skin made it seem even more mystical. She told me that was very touched by this experience.

Watching this movie makes me want to quit my tech job, sell everything and move to Asia to scuba dive all day.

These are the best videos on marine life Ive seen to date. The sheer amount of diversity is amazing! The voice, music and footage is great! Please do more and keep exploring the oceans vastness. I'll be here waiting to watch all that you have captured.

Very well produced and edited. The music is awesome, and even lowers when the narrator speaks. This is a work of art. Amazing job all around. Thank you for the upload : )

Tons of species.. Tons of info.. Nice calm but interesting narrating. This video is totally watchable til the very end! Nothing negative to say! Just well put together, all together! Keep it up!

Thanks for the upload, it's nearly as relaxing as 2mg lorazepam.

It really bothers me how the common name "leopard shark" applies to both zebra sharks (Stegostoma fasciatum) AND the west-coast species of hound shark (Triakis semifasciata).
Common names for fishes be like that.

Absolutely amazing film, one of the most beautiful and instructive documentaries I've ever seen! The marine life subtitles helped me a lot! Honestly, at first, I thought: oh no, one of "those" with music, again! But after a while, it is kind a soothing... I didn't find it too intrusive. Wonderful to watch, especially now, with the covid crisis, and mandatory confinement here (in France), your film is therapeutic!! Many thanks ++++
