Images from Scott Cassell’s attempt to do a world record dive in order to raise awareness about the plight of sharks. Scott tried to dive from Catalina Island to San Pedro – 30 miles – underwater. I was part of the crew on Chris Wade’s research vessel, Sea Watch, doing underwater photography of the attempt.

Scott finished the dive, but experienced gear malfunctions that forced him to surface. During the dive, he did not see a single shark, which decades ago would have been unheard of.
