Everyday is #EarthDay 
.
The earth is what we all have in common, breathing the air that is around us, is what we all have in common. It doesn’t matter what life you live, where you live, what you do, has an impact, small or big. If the planet suffers, so do we, so look after it.
.
Keep the earth in mind, not just today, but everyday. .

@jordentually Dream Colours

Often dream about living onboard a vessel like this, spent the weekend aboard this over 60ft masterpiece #TropicRover with @totheislands__ and it was amazing ️
.
This boat is a part of Australian Marine History, originally designed to be an eco-tours vessel for the great, late Ron Isbel, this boat has seen decades navigating the Great Barrier Reef. It’s seen the making of Jaws, Flipper, and been a scientific research vessel for more than double what I have been alive. After being restored to its full glory its now ready for action out of Perth, yesterday we explored around #RottnestIsland, got some fun waves, jumped off the bow and most of all, shared a lot of laughs and good times with an amazing crew.( more images to come ️ )
.
 @totheislands__ is an environmentally-conscious adventure yacht company designed for surf, dive or whatever adventures you can think of 
Cannot wait for what’s to come with this incredible team! .

@totheislands__ : @lachyross
.
Big shoutout to @thelocalhotel for the amazing room and hospitality this weekend also, if you are staying in Freo, it’s the go-to

@jordentually Looked like a sweet adventure. I need to take this trip when I’m over that side 👌🏼

@roam Looks like a great adventure!

Missing my favourite little macropod so much at the moment! #Bunji  >>>>
Living safe and sound at #TwoSongsSanctuary back in SA now she is happy as ever. 
It took over 2 years and a full time job getting her to adult-hood, it takes a lot of care and love to raise an orphan native animal, and it’s ongoing, so please keep this in mind when driving this long weekend. Kangaroo joeys can survive in a deceased mums pouch for over 3 days, so please stop and check kangaroos and wombats if you are driving through rural Australia.
Many carers dedicate their lives to this, like the owners of Two Songs, and appreciate everyone taking extra caution where possible. 
A reminder to please be careful on the roads this Easter. Use common sense of risky times to drive, areas with heavy populations of wildlife, and keep in mind many kangaroos are feeding on grasses along the roadside due to lack of native grasses and food in farmers paddocks in many areas, as well as water pooling on the roadsides. This goes for all wildlife, birds, reptiles and mammals. 
Please stop and check if you come across injured wildlife, if you have an accident involving wildlife do the same and call one of the many numbers available for support and advice if you find yourself in this situation. 
If you need numbers to call head over to @balubluefoundation and check out our “ Save A Life “ highlights tab with numbers to call in all Aust states for wildlife rescue. 
.
Hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend.

Do your work, then step back. 
Something I read a while back, about managing your time, when you manage your life. 
It’s a crazy and exciting thing to be in control of your own life, to be the one who is motivating yourself in everything, your work, your health, your goals.
It’s something that people underestimate the challenge of, and something I admire so much in this community of amazing people that I have connected with from this app internationally. Some days it feels like I have 10 different roles, but I love them all, it’s taken me a long time to combine my career paths, and a lot of work, to get to where I am, and I feel like I am only just getting started. Surrounding myself with doers, positive and inspiring people is something I choose to do, and always motivates me.
Moments like these, out on the water with my pup and great friends, are never ever taken for granted. It makes me even more stoked when I am back on land to take everything to the next level.
No matter where you are in the career you want to take, keep working and all the small things become the most rewarding, like salty kisses from your dog

Magic around us, magic within us. 
Blue days and bubble rings, I’ve been working on some longer edits of this incredible day at the moment. 
Whether we realise it or not, the ocean is the worlds most shared resource, jointly used by billions of humans all across the globe, if in no other ways, we are connected this way. 
While we us it for a variety of things, leisure, peace, work, travel, it unites us. 
What we can’t ever forget, is that 2.2 million other species live here, between 50-80% of all life is under the sea. From the deep bioluminescent world, to the lighter shallow waters full of nutrients that we often play in, it is a vast eternity that is still mostly undiscovered. Throughout my time exploring this place, I become more interested everyday, more passionate.
The ocean is a place that is more important than we know, too vast to comprehend, and if you are a part of the many people that love it, I hope everyday you make choices that help the sea. .

This last week we had the pleasure of seeing this beautiful creature on the back of the reef 
This is a Leopard shark, also commonly known as a Zebra Shark (Stegostoma fasciatum)
.
Often found cruising around looking in crevices for molluscs, crustaceans and finding small fish to feed on.
.
I have just uploaded a new video to my YouTube Channel of this encounter, ( link in bio ) excited to be uploading new vids of my adventures to YouTube regularly now, don’t forget to subscribe if you want to see more longer edits ️️️

Dogs are in this life to teach us, to be by our side, to make us appreciate all the small things, and the big things, to make us know where home is. 
I’m not sure what I would do without her, and everyday, it brings me joy to be able to bring her along my journey in this life, it’s a salty one and she absolutely loves it

This was shortly after we had a friendly visit from a decent size #Sailfish underwater, billfish are so incredible and that was a first for me. The ocean never ceases to amaze me, you just never know what is around the corner

@jordentually Never seen one of them! Salty hair is the bestestttttttttt

@melissafindley You're my favourite little ball of happiness and I miss you.

Wild ~ .
This lioness and her cub were feeding on this carcass for a while as we sat and watched this pride, some were laying around, some were playing and some were feeding. Feeding events in nature have always fascinated me, I’ve spent a bit of time observing them underwater, and in outback Australia, but seeing lions and any big cats in their natural environment, has always been a dream.  It was exactly that, to see this pride so close. .
If you ever visit #SouthAfrica, always make sure to do your research on where you visit, support only ethical tourism attractions, educate yourself on areas, reserves, and national parks. If you ever go anywhere in the world, and you see a lion on a chain, in a cage, or doing tricks, don’t support it and speak up about it. .
.
.
I have only really just delved into editing my favourite shots from this trip, and am excited to put together a little gallery of wildlife specific shots soon.  
I just uploaded a written blog to my site, as a recap of our trip along the Garden Route, link is in my bio if you would like to have a read, and leave any comments. I will be posting more images and videos soon

@jordentually What an epic shot. Must have been the best experience ever

Gatorade Blue, a term we give water so blue it hurts your eyes.

Such an epic day on the water, sailfish, leopard shark, circling buff brim, these are the days you dream about. Gave my diaphragm and lungs a workout today, always trying to stay humble and go for dives without my carbon blades too.
