#278 Thanks for your support on Patreon (
Being offered 10 million dollars via email. Crazy right? Would you have replied to the email? Are we naive to think it could have been real? We'll never truely know what went on there.
We're out on the island of Faial. We're going freediving, making sure we're following the local rules and regulations, and we're joined by the most amazing sea creature which we hear is teeming in the Azores this time of year. We're checking out new volcanic landmass and having a good old time in Horta. Also any diver/science/shark people out there who can tell us whether you can stare down a shark? Link us your scientific papers, crackpot theories or pictures of you personally confirming it in practice. Thanks in advance team.
If you'd like to check out Sofia and Thomas, here's some links:

Hey guys. There is a lady who commented here that she was in a nursing home and loves you. Anyway we can do something special for her? : "Dd Hh 2 weeks ago I love watching you two and Lenny. I'm 74 and my hubby is in nursing home with dementia, so it gets pretty lonely by myself. Watching you brings such sense of freedom and no stress. The nursing home is in lock down so am I basically. So I love the happiness you two share with each other, we shared lots of love. I'm not telling my story for you to feel sorry for me but to let you know the joy you bring to me. Lots of good wishes for Christmas and the new year ahead.😍"

I read an article about putting masks of faces on the back of the heads of agricultural workers in India where there frequent attacks from tigers. It seemed to work for a while because attacks went down but then went back up. They believed the tigers figured it out. Let's hope sharks can't.

I don't normally comment, but this is long over due. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I grew up in southern California and swim in the oceans of HB at least once a week for as long as I could remember. Around 2016 my then girlfriend got pregnant with my help of course, a new chapter in my life began. I found a job working in a factory far away in a very different place that I was not used to. I installed engines on the 767 in Everett Washington. The work was hard but financially rewarding and allowed me the funds to care for my new family. Life was moving fast and I found myself very home sick. This is about the time I discovered Sailing La Vagabonde. In dark time you guys gave me comfort, friendship and another hipster family I could relate to. As Covid hit and I lost my job, things began to look bleak once again. My wife stepped up and became the bread winner for our family as I transitioned. The honesty and candor in your videos reminded me that struggle is not unique and that as a family my situation would improve. I now find myself with a better job then the last but further than ever away from ocean. My family is my life and my home but your videos are the ocean breeze and the sun squints. I look forward to becoming a patrion member.

I am a marine biologist, specializing in sharks, and tiger sharks to be even more specific. The whole idea of looking at a shark to thwart an attack only works with a few species of shark, and they are normally the smaller species such as gray reef or white tip reef sharks. The idea is about conservation of energy. Sharks use a system like a checkbook of energy conservation, where in they prefer to spend as little energy as possible to gain as much energy as possible. So a sneak attack usually means less struggle and less fight. But they will not be fooled by eye's drawn on the back of a mask strap. They are much smarter than we have ever given them credit through out history. So keep your head on a swivel, and always be aware of your surroundings while in the water.

Don't kill Parrot fish. They make sand. Look it up.
The guy who offered you lot of money is a scammer , he is not real , pretended he was someone who does exist and rich as well just to scam you , here is how it works : he would offer you $10 m and promise you the life of your dreams then he would pretend that he is running into sone technical problems and all he needs at that moment was $10000 to get moving , then he would ask for more as problems ( he created ) keep coming and he would ask for more money , at the end when he feels that you’ll probably gonna face him , he would ask for as much as possible then waits for your reaction. Had he have a diamond mine , he would buy a more expense boat

I dive with sharks for a living!! Yes you should always keep your head on a swivel, and eye contact is very important! As for The eyes on a the back of the mask.. hmmmm, it reminds me of butterfly wings that have those “eye balls” on them! I dont think it will work though 😂😁😁

I'm an amateur diver and I've not heard this before, I didn't think sharks relied on their vision enough for this to be a thing. But as an aside, in India and other tiger country, workers often wear masks on the back of their heads as tigers (and other cats like American pumas) absolutely do stalk prey from behind.

I can't believe you don't know this... Sharks are ambush predators, they prefer to take there prey by surprise which means sneaking up on their prey. Also, if you scare a shark, they will turn on a dime and retreat to the depths, probably because they like to come up from behind their prey. Also, you should always keep your eyes on sharks (especially dangerous one).

I was raised in the Florida Keys. The waters off Big Pine Key is Bull Shark central. Craziest damn sharks in the world. They could care less where you draw those eyes. I'm 58 years old and have been a freedive/spearfish pro diving that area and can honestly say "They don't give a crap what you do!" If they want you.... your there's. The great thing is... ... Bull sharks don't like confronting humans. I guess we taste terrible to them LOL. Thank the Lord. Bahia Honda is proof of that. Both oceanside and Gulf side beaches are surrounded by Bull sharks yet there has never been an attack on Tourists there. A few buddies and I were fishing between the two famous bridges at Bahia Honda Key and accidentally started a small shark frenzy. Maybe 20-30 5 ft. Bull sharks. All the while, there were Tourist and their kids up and down Gulf side Bahia Honda Beach oblivious to shark activity just 200 feet away. Drawing eye's have zero affect on whether or not a shark will attack.
You got scammed , I was offered 21 million🤣

I'm just wondering. While you're in open water, spearfishing, is your drone looking out for sharks? I remember y'all saying tiger sharks are aggressive when hunting. Spearing a fish would produce blood? Couldn't that attract a shark? Seeing your hubby out in the open water presenting a bloody (literally) fish. Makes me nervous watching! I love it!

@johnnytheprick Not really, Grapes are a different kind of hazard for kids, because parents expect it will be crashed before swallowed, in reality they can choke on the whole grape, especially eating itin amoving vessel. As for the other things they put into their mouths, which is not food, observant parents notice it right away and take it out immediately.

Bracelets for sea-sickness!!!! They have helped me alot and I get easily seasick! They are basically bracelets you put on each wrist half an hour BEFORE you sail - they have a tiny half ball on it which you place on your wrist on a specific spot (read instructions for this) and it acts like a tricker point/pressure point :D I can really recommend this - please look into this and see if you are able to find some - otherwise I will love to find some here in Denmark and ship them to you
