In this episode we take a look at some of Ireland's inshore marine life. From giant Basking Shark to Little Cuttlefish, the seas are alive with creatures, people rarely see. 

Diving at night in Ireland's inshore waters is both exhilarating and creepy. Imagine being surrounded in the deep dark with nothing to keep you company other than the sound of your exhaled air bubbles as they make for the surface. As you wander through the night underwater, the beam of your torchlight attracts many creatures. Meet the John Dory, the Compass Jellyfish, sleeping Wrasse, swimming crabs that use modified claws to swim away from danger and the amazing little Cuttlefish, a master of camouflage that buries itself in the sand and uses its tentacles to scoop sand to further bury itself.
