One of the main reasons I wanted to go to Apollo Bay on this trip was to test out the GoPro, and not just in the rockpools. I had heard that the harbour was great for biodiversity but only had experience from the rockpools over a couple of trips.
My aunt had taken my nephew fishing, so I decided to muck around. The below video is of the sea life growing on the floating walkway I was on, that leads to the boats. I was curious to see if there were any animals lurking about. I didn’t see any, but it was interesting footage regardless.
There were plenty of fish around but I struggled to get any on camera. Sometimes I wouldn’t turn it on properly and it was hard to aim in the proper direction, as it was my first use. The below footage was the best I could get.. this trip.
I posted this in a Facebook Group and it got a positive reaction, although I am still unsure if it is relevant to anyone. I saw something floating on top of the water. I wasn’t sure whether it was rubbish but thought it was worth getting a shot.
The photos are made more difficult by the reflection, but the video shows the whole thing. I hope to explore this better in a future trip.
