Freediving inside a school of black-striped salema

It's easy to get lost in the moment when freediving inside a school of black-striped salema in the Galápagos. Kicker Rock, the remains of an old volcanic cone off the coast of San Cristobal in the Galápagos. The area was teeming with marine life – green sea turtles, white-tipped reef sharks, hammerheads and huge schools of black-striped salema.
