Depths of Rapid Bay ocean on display thanks to new underwater livestream

The camera will be available to watch on a live stream during daylight hours seven days a week.

If you love sea creatures, snorkelling, and scuba diving, you’ll love what this underwater camera placed by Australian Ocean Institute (AusOcean) has documented.

Their mission is to advance and share knowledge of the oceans around us, and this camera will allow a lot of people to experience what they otherwise wouldn’t.

The camera will be available to watch on a live stream during daylight hours seven days a week, so it will be perfect for Easter Long Weekend viewing.

The camera does roll all day, but AusOcean say the best time is probably around midday to about 3pm.

The reasoning behind the ideal timing is because the sun sits right above the pylons and the rays hit the water making for quite spectacular viewing at that time.

One of the highlights of the stream is that there is a resident cuttlefish that you can see most of the day happily frolicking amongst the pylons.

There’s a host of other sea life that frequents the Rapid Bay area, like squid, salmon, Australian herring, zebra fish, and a whole lot more, so be sure to tune in regularly to catch a glimpse of the abundance of sea life.
