Albino Critter Alert: Going Off the Deep End

Looking up at the surface, roughly 300 feet above us.
My lowest point. Literally, that is.

Here is the story of my journey to a depth of 2,000 feet underwater in a homemade submarine off the coast of Honduras’ Roatan Island. It’s a planet within a planet down there.

The piece, my first with Narratively, is part of a travel series in partnership with Expedia, and is accompanied by stunning pics taken by the venerable Lia Barrett.
