A rogue with an eye for salvage - and the ladies - Ray: A Life Underwater is an affectionate portrait of one man's deep sea diving career, told through his extraordinary collection of marine artefacts.
Like a modern-day pirate, 75-year-old Ray Ives has been scouring the seabed for treasure his whole life.
The former commercial diver has plundered the deep for over fifty years, bringing to the surface anything that glittered -- even gold.
In a shipping container near the water, Ray tends his museum of cannon, bottles, bells, swords, portholes and diving gear.
He even still takes to the water in a 1900s diving suit.
Ray can be found most days at his museum at Yacht Haven Quay, Plymouth.
Relive a week of diving in five minutes. On board the M/V Sun Dancer II in Belize, June 9 to June 15, 2012 with the New York Aquarium Volunteer Dive Team. Special thanks to Megan, all the animals that swam by my lens, all those who love to breathe underwater (you know who you are), Jaws, and Air, for letting me hold on to my trip a little longer.
