Photo: Photo Sphere: Substation Curacao, CaribbeanWe use a range of tools to research, record and reveal the coral reefs of the world. Earlier this year, when we were surveying the reefs of Curacao in the south Caribbean Sea we saw another great piece of scientific equipment in action - meet the "Substation Curacao".Researchers use this mini-sub to dive to depths of 1000ft / 320m, depths that can't be reached via regular scuba diving methods. This  #PhotoSphere  shows the substation and one of our photographers on the reef in Curacao.www.catlinseaviewsurvey.com

Photo: Photo Sphere: Whale shark & photographerEach year in August Isla Contoy, Mexico, is one of the best places in the world to swim with whale sharks. We think that this may be one of the first ever 360 panoramas captured with a whale shark and very lucky snorkeler in the frame.Click into the image to experience the 360 degree #photosphere and get a better idea of how huge the #whaleshark  really is.www.catlinseaviewsurvey
Photo: Photo Sphere: Emily's Pinnacles, BermudaThe team are in Bermuda and captured this #photosphere  at a site called "Emily's Pinnacles". By clicking into this 360 panorama you can see the great structure that this particular reef has.Hard corals like those pictured here provide the building blocks for the reef, and habitat and protection for all the other life that lives here. You can see some banded coral disease on some of the hard corals in this image - but otherwise the reef looks in great shape.www.catlinseaviewsurvey.com
