I never want to miss out on a photo opportunity when I travel. I bring my DSLR with me on most trips, and I always have my iPhone 6 Plus with me. But underwater opportunities always pass me by, because I never had a good quality underwater camera. Last year for Christmas, I decided that I wanted a GoPro camera, and got the GoPro HERO Silver.
Earlier this summer, we headed out on several fantastic beach vacations, and were able to use the GoPro to get some great underwater pictures. In Atlantis, we saw these beautiful fish swimming right by the shore.
In Turks and Caicos, we went snorkeling on Grace Bay Beach. Just a few minutes into our journey, we saw this beautiful sun star.

My daughter took the GoPro from me as she ventured out further, and got this image of their snorkel instructor, Morgan, pointing out reef balls at the bottom of the ocean.
On another day, we took a boat to Pine Cay, and saw this ray right at our feet.

In August, we went on a Disney Cruise, and one of our stops was Grand Cayman. We unfortunately completely forgot our snorkel equipment on the ship, but did remember the GoPro. There were some rocks by the shore where I took this picture of these beautiful fish.
Then, I was offered the opportunity to review the brand-new GoPro4 Session. If you are familiar with the GoPro4 Session, it’s an even smaller version of the GoPro, and is completely waterproof without requiring a protective cover. We’d already finished our beach vacations, but did have a fun day at a local beach planned. I saw this little hermit crab that had taken residence in a periwinkle shell, and got a video of it. The GoPro 4 Session is easy to use, and completely integrates with the app on my iPhone.

I’ll have a more in depth review of the GoPro4 Session soon. In the meantime, you can learn more and purchase at the GoPro website.
