As our presenting sponsor, Aqua-Vu is the driving force of showing you the 39hrs series. As a company, their fundamental goal is showing you the world below the water's surface through their wide line of submersible cameras. There is no cooler perspective than watching fish and their habitat be revealed on the camera screen - and in pure function, underwater cameras deliver a visual confirmation on specific fish species and structure types that no other tool or expertise can offer. Aqua-Vu has been the industry pacemaker since the inception and adaptation of this technology – and continues to make cameras easier to use and more feature-packed.
