    There was a person in the water taking pictures on Matts first ocean dive 11/14/06. Here is one that will be sent out to the press documenting the event.

    As for the video and the Today show. They will be airing it shortly. I'll ensure to let everyone know when that date will be. Also there were two video guys working for the Today show during Matt's dives. They both had to turn in their tapes after the shoot. This is standard. The producer told me that we would have access to the video after they had edited it.

    Again thank you all for the nice words. And Polly my next dive I don't know yet, I need to get my dive gear back and yet and then I'll figure that out. I know there is a lot left of my drean to finish yet. Hen's and chickens was a beatiful place.

    Sincerely Matt the Aquaman :mooner: :D

    Congrats Matt!

    Just finished watching the segment on the Today show. You're kinda like a test pilot, you know... testing unknown systems, experiencing a new world. Reminds me alot of the astronaut's stories - you're a PIONEER! Hope this opens up a lot of possibilities for you and many others! We'll be looking for a web version of your dive log so we can keep up with your dives!

    Yeah, I heard that it finally was aired. A friend called to let me know it was on. Glad they did use it...

    Edit: Oops, just saw the threads on the video. Missed those earlier...

    Congratulations Matt!!!!!

    For those who did not get to see the show today, you can view the 11 minute clip on http://www.msnbc.msn.com/

    I was unable to get the specific link to the video. You will need Macromedia Flash Player to watch it

    Cheers
