Great video! 0ne of the things I'm hoping to use my new Cruiser for is a base for freediving/spearfishing in SE AK (once the dust settles re: cross-border travel). Spearfishers in Alaska look few and far between - I'm always happy to find more of them.

Cool. Well, more like cold. Laughing In a previous life, I spear-fished a lot. But that water was like 78-80F in Hawai'i and I was much younger then. Kudos and thanks for sharing this...

Nice Video, Cold water. Those Stellars look pretty graceful in the water.

Great footage! How are the currents where you dive? I know they can be pretty strong out in the main fishing grounds where we fish for halibut.
