#DiveoftheYear Awards 2018 winner and runner-ups

Over the last year, we have been selecting some stunning #DiveoftheWeek highlights in the Oceans app and on social media. Today — on World Oceans Day — it’s finally time to announce Dive of the Year 2018. And the winner, presented by Oceans’ ambassador Fabien Cousteau is…

“Sea lions are one the most curious and playful animals in the ocean. This year’s winner captures a fantastic close encounter with a sea lion pup, probably in search for a new buddy to play with.

Congratulations Bishoy Mikhael, you are the winner of the Dive of the Year Awards 2018, and congrats to the runner-ups Julie Jones and Nick Turner!“
