Monster Storm Throws Thousands of Tons of Cargo Into the Sea

Even a massive cargo ship can sometimes be no match for the massive storms brewing on the world’s oceans. But when you add hundreds of thousands of tons of cargo into the mix, the last place you want to find yourself is on deck when cargo starts spilling overboard.

‘Ghost fish’ seen for first time deep under the Pacific

694940094001_5022930621001_070616-storyful-fish-1280
Deep beneath the ocean’s surface, scientists have spotted for the first time a living “ghost fish,” an eel-like creature in the family of Aphyonidae. The roughly four-inch long fish has eerie white skin and a tadpole-like tail, and was captured on camera on a ridge about 8200 feet underwater in the Pacific. “I am sure that this is the first time a fish in this family has ever been seen alive,” Bruce Mundy, a fisheries biologist with NOAA, said in the video. “This is really an unusual sighting.”

See the World From a Container Ship in This Surprisingly Lovely Video

See the World From a Container Ship in This Surprisingly Lovely Video

Climbing aboard a container ship isn’t exactly the most glamorous way to travel, but when the footage is condensed into a time lapse—oh my, is it stunning. It’s especially neat to see the different layers of the sky dance overhead, but the coolest part is just being around all that blue. It really makes you feel the vastness of the world.

Flying Underwater Looks Like So Much Fun

Flying Underwater Looks Like So Much Fun

Obviously, you can’t actually fly underwater because people can’t fly (and it wouldn’t even be called flying since you’re underwater) but using this subwing attached to a boat, you can completely submerge yourself underwater and make it feel like you’re gliding through the air (but really cutting through the ocean). God, it must be so fun to do in clear water.

Watch a Huge 100-Foot Wave Crash Down and Smash a Ship

Watch a Huge 100-Foot Wave Crash Down and Smash a Ship

Damn. It’s like hitting a wall. Or rather, it’s like a wall hitting you. This footage shows giant wave after giant wave pummeling a ship and when you think they’ve finally weathered the storm, in comes the biggest and baddest wave that smacks the boat silly.

Surfing has never looked more majestic than in this drone video

The waves of Teahupo’o in Tahiti are so lovely that surfing them is the only way to truly appreciate them. Or, well, I guess watching other people surf through this drone video is a pretty damn good way to see its majestic beauty too. Brent Bielmann and Eric Sterman shot this drone video for Surfing Magazine and it captures angles of surfers and the glassy waves like we never seen them before.

This Is What the Ocean Might Look Like in 100 Years

The volcanic island of Maug is really three volcanic peaks, rising up from a remote part of the Pacific Ocean. Underwater vents on the side of Maug’s caldera seep carbon dioxide into the ocean. The shallow water around the volcano is full of coral reefs — except near the underwater vents, where researchers have watched the coral die off, to be replaced by algae clinging to the rocks.

A Warm Ocean “Blob” In the Pacific Is Feeding a Toxic Algae Bloom 

The Blob has been there for over a year—a cauldron of extra-warm ocean temperatures off the coast of the Pacific Northwest that just won’t budge. The Blob has already affected food availability and habitats for marine life, and now scientists are starting to see at least one dangerous side-effect of the Blob: A harmful algae bloom stretching from Alaska to California.

This surfer looks like he’s standing on water

Here’s a fun surf video of Tommy Witt surfing on his longboard and pulling fun tricks that make him look like he’s not even surfing but just riding the waves with his own two feet. The board kind of just disappears into the wave and it leaves him looking like he’s just standing there, on top of the water.
