Asha de Vos and Shaylyn Potter Live Q&A

The vast majority of us don’t dive in polar waters and will never get to experience Antarctica from the topside let alone the underside. Shaylyn Potter, on the other hand, has had the good privilege of visiting and revisiting this space over the last few years.

Through this chat, Shaylyn opens our eyes to what it is truly like to dive in Antarctica, why she enjoys diving there vs. around the Arctic, how she started her career in polar diving and underwater videography (peppered with a lot of inspirational advice) and so much more! Definitely watch this and enjoy the questions, thoughts and inspiration. 

We also asked Shaylyn a few fun questions so check them out by clicking on the ‘guest Q&A’ tab to learn a little more about what it takes to do what she does and what her favourite species is (hint: it’s a species that we mention in our Ocean Creature Feature about nudibranchs so go watch that too https://oceanswell.org/ocean-creature-feature).
