Explore The SS Copenhagen Dive Site In Lauderdale-By-The-Sea With This Underwater Video By Sarosh Jacob
If you’re looking for an adventurous way to spend your weekend, consider exploring the underwater treasures the Fort Lauderdale area has to offer.
Need some convincing? Well, we’ll let Sarosh Jacob’s latest video do the talkin’.
On July 23, the local videographer ventured to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea to check out the SS Copenhagen dive site with freediver John Cienfuegos. The two encountered hosts of marine life while swimming among reefs and wreckage of the 1898 steamer ship.
For Jacob, one of the most memorable moments of the trip was capturing a school of bait fish dancing in front of the camera.
“Nature rarely cooperates, and I remember thinking to myself, ‘Wow, everything really came together on that shot,” he said.
Jacob, who often explores underwater dive sites, says the SS Cophenhagen is easily among his top spots because “it’s easily accessible and has mooring [buoys] that you can use to tie off your boat.”
One important tip for videography novices looking to film underwater?
“[M]ake sure you have fully mastered scuba diving,” he said. “The camera can be a big distraction underwater, so always be aware of your air consumption, depth, etc.”
