Take an immersive dive below the waves off the Welsh coast using 360 VR: Catsharks (Watch Video)

Published

on

A week-long series from Jake Davies…

Below the waves off the Welsh coast, there are a range of species and habitats that can be seen. However, you don’t have to venture too far from the shore to see them or don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. Using 360 videos provides an immersive feeling of being below the water and encountering many species and habitats from diving one of the most important habitats and species that aren’t often seen whilst diving. For more of an experience of being below the waves, the VR videos can be viewed using a VR headset.

Take a VR dive with two of the over 35 shark species that are found along the Welsh coast. The lesser spotted catshark (Scyliorhinus canicula) is one of the most common shark species found around the UK coast, swimming alongside the lesser spotted catshark is its larger cousin the Bullhuss (Scyliorhinus stellaris) also known as the Nursehound.
