Being Cornwall’s Marine Filming Specialists leads to some amazing adventures and assignments. So as promised in a previous blog, here are the videos of our 2022 Irish boating adventure.

We produced this series for Motor Boats and Yachting magazine. You can find the accompanying articles on their website. We were

Episode 1 – From Cornwall to Kilmore Quay



We were blessed with perfect conditions for our crossing to south eastern Ireland. As soon as we lost sight of Cornwall behind us, no other vessel in sight, and the first dolphins playing off the bow,  the pure joy of being alone in the Celtic Sea overwhelmed me. 

Episode 2 – To Kinsale and West Cork


I first discovered the ocean when I was 17 when I spent the whole glorious summer at a schoolfriend’s holiday home on Derrynane Harbour. It was the start of a love affair with the sea that has lasted over 50 years. It was a summer that changed my life. And I dreamt that one day I’d spend a night in Derrynane Harbour on my own boat. 50 years later that dream came true.

Episode 3 – The awesome coast of County Kerry plus the Skellig and Blasket Islands


During that amazing summer, I got occasional work on a boat taking tourists out to the Skellig Islands. On the summit of Skellig Michael early Christian monks built beehive stone huts and dedicated their lives to God in this wild and lonely outpost. They believed they were on the very edge of the world. Some 640 steep steps hewn from the rock climb from the only possible landing on the island up to their settlement – the Stairway to Heaven.

Little Skellig although smaller is far more visible from a distance, shining white on the horizon due to the guano accumulated over millennia of around 35,000 pairs of gannets – the second biggest colony on the planet. Both islands plunge sheer and deep into the Atlantic. Both are incredibly inspiring, atmospheric and emotive places.

So a visit on Cecienne was a must. And we finished the trip in Dingle and with an exploration of the stunningly wild and beautiful Blasket Islands.

It’s a tough life being Marine Filming Specialists!

We set this channel up some years ago. however we have never really cultivated a following. But we’ve just seen that we are only 20 short of the magical number of 500 followers. Because once we reach 500 we can apply to join the You Tube Partner Programme

Massive back catalogue of documentaries

To date we’ve just occasionally and quite randomly uploaded to our You Tube Channel. But now we plan regular uploads. Over the past 30 years under our documentary persona Shark Bay Films, we have produced around 30 documentaries that have sold to television stations worldwide.  Check our television sales list!  Many of these are now out of licence. So we plan uploading these for free viewing.

We have also produced a colossal number of short films over the years. These cover a wide range of subjects and interests. We have music videos, local films, promo films for clients, and series of videos following our marine adventures.  We will be uploading these too over the coming months.

Well – it costs you nothing. And every time we upload a video you will be notified. There will be clips and longer films for every interest!

To be honest, we have been very remiss about Instagram posts. Our Crow Creative Instagram feed has been totally neglected. But no longer! At least twice a week we will be posting images. Some will be about current events. Others will be albums from different places we have travelled and filmed. And from different jobs we have done for clients. Some might even just be amazing sunsets, creatures, or ocean scenes. Again something for everyone!

From our Biscay boating series which will be included on the channel

Our exciting new documentary series – Remains of War. Because in 3 hour long episodes we explore the debris of the merciless battles of World War 2 across the remote islands of the Pacific. Here’s a link to the preview video. 

Remains of War series

Intact sea plane

80th anniversary of end of war in Pacific

Coinciding with the 80th anniversary of the end of the Pacific War, this series follows the original path of the American naval advance northwards towards Japan. From battle-ravaged Guadalcanal to former Japanese stronghold of Truk. Roaming through the jungles and islands of Papua New Guinea and tracking the savage fight for the tiny island of Peleliu. As a result, we reveal some of the fascinating and forgotten tales of the conflict, and the people involved. Eighty years on, wreckage is easy to find – not only under the ocean but also on land.

Extensive archive footage

Archive footage from the time, shot in the heat of the original battles will give relevance to the rusting remains.

Wrecks of all types of ships still contain their cargoes. Some are partly beached where invasion forces landed supplies. While others lie deep below the waves where they were sunk by air attack or in sea battle. We dive on a Japanese submarine, lost with all her crew. Dozens of aircraft, from large bombers to small fighter planes lie scattered on the seabed – often intact.

On land, artillery pieces still aim where they last fired over 80 years ago, and abandoned tanks lie rusting in the jungle. Subterranean Japanese hospitals and tunnel complexes, vehicles and weapons all make up this military scrapyard. Additionally, we reveal the full story behind the recently discovered remains of Admiral Yamamoto’s plane, shot down by US forces after a secret operation

Multiple filming locations

Eventually we filmed across Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Palau and Truk. As a result, the series provides a unique history of yesterday’s war through today’s visible remains. We will be releasing the new documentary series n early 2024 as a Shark Bay Films / Crow Creative production
