Muck diving

What is "muck diving"?

Over the years, “muck diving” has become increasingly popular, especially among underwater photographers. For those of you who don’t know, muck diving refers to the practice of searching the ocean floor, often made up of black sand, sediment and general muck, for the tiny critters that live there. It’s the antithesis of diving vast coral reefs and gawking at massive schools of fish as they swim past.

Jellyfish Lake is home to, quite literally, millions of jellyfish.
