#sponsored // I've been finding some time for myself lately. There's something about a winding mountain road and putting the phone on airplane mode that's good for the soul. Sometimes my life seems to fly by so quickly that, ironically, taking a drive can actually slow things down for me. Every mile has a story to tell. Where will the @MINIUSA#NewCountryman take you? Find out at natgeo.com/countryman.
Looking forward to some bigwall adventures in Greenland soon with this guy. @ethanpringle casually upside down and placing a piece of protection on the obscure roof-crack, "Five Year Plan" 5.13, Dinosaur Mountain, Flatirons, Colorado. Shot back in 2009. @briansolano

And, we invited along a family to join me on the adventures. It's always the people I meet who become like extended family that I take away from trips like this one. Every mile has a story to tell.

: Greeted with Oceanic Whitetips after sunset, we couldn't possibly pass up the opportunity to spend some quality time with our favorite sharks in the void. A healthy dose of curiosity and respect going both ways. Video: @andy_mann@perrinjames1@seabacon // Music: Eternal Sunset (@hawkfather@_electricmeadow_ )
At home on this snowy Colorado day editing together our 360 VR night dive with the Oceanics. Definitely the coolest VR experience I've had with a headset. Here is a screenshot from the film. You can see the lights of our boat above the surface. I'll be posting a behind the scenes of how we pulled this off in the coming weeks. @google@moorecharitable@sea_legacy
Nothing is more important to me than my family and no adventure compares to the life I've chosen with my beautiful wife @orienstar. Happy Mother's Day to the most beautiful women in the world. Thanks for being our anchor!
Know what it feels like to be alone? Multiply that times a thousand and you have Laura Dekker, the youngest person to sail solo around the world. The journey took her 518 days on her 38 foot two-masted ketch, named "Guppy." She was 16 years old at the time. I enjoyed sharing stories with her over tea aboard Guppy on a recent trip New Zealand. People like Laura in inspire me to push my boundaries. @costasunglasses@cainedelacy

Yesterday was a memorable day at sea with good friends, ending with something we've all dreamed of for years: a night dive in the black water with the Oceanic Whitetips. So grateful for our oceans 🏼 @moorecharitable@ceibahamas@google
Another scene of the Azorean Sperm Whale encounter. An unforgettable moment surrounded by our planet's largest tooth carnivore. Gentle giants of the sea. @waittfoundation@thejoelepore

Those crystal blue Bahamian waters and a gentle visit from the King, the Oceanic Whitetip.

New Zealand is full of magic. Travelers trek to Cathedral Cove, a magical destination tucked away on the Coromandel Peninsula. To get there, find the trail at the north end of Hahei Beach and walk along the towering cliff top until the hidden Cathedral Cove beckons you from below. The gigantic arched cavern, white-sand beaches, and seclusion will leave you breathless.

Photo: @andy_mann // Two days ago @kai_lenny rewrote the book of possibilities by crossing Alenuihaha Channel, considered one of the most treacherous crossings in the world, from the big island of Hawaii to Maui. By harnessing open ocean swells, Kai floats above the water on his 5'6" hydrofoil surfboard and rides hidden waves for hours at speeds up to 22 miles an hour. He also swooped up ocean trash along the way. Today he shattered the record from Molokai to Oahu. Thanks for the inspiration, Kai. It's been an unforgettable week! @sustainablecoastlineshawaii@redbull
