“Inspiring conversation is usually brought on by inspiring places and people. After a long day on the water, it’s nice to set up camp and relax by a fire.” Location: Nimmo Bay Resort

“The one thing more important than good equipment is good safety. Always dive with a friend and know the risks.”

“Surface Intervals and proper ‘breathups’ are integral to a good dive. Education is the key to Freediving.”

“Interrupted for a short time, but returned to the wild. It was great to get a closer look at these marvellous Puget Sound box crab. You don’t always have to kill what you find.”

“Sustainability, safety and selective harvesting are the foundations of spearfishing. Dive safe, shoot straight and eat well.”

About Jeremy Koreski:

Growing up in Tofino, Jeremy has spent countless hours in the surf taking photos, but only recently was he introduced to free diving and started shooting underwater. For him, free diving is exciting because as soon as you breath up and take a dive, you never know what you are going to see or find.
