Since they were young, the three had their life planned out: They would move to an island and continue their underwater adventures. Twenty years later, John, Mike and Dan live on Maui and have started their own business, C3 Submerged, working as underwater photographers and leading dive tours of an underwater paradise and capturing images of the colorful creatures they find.
CafÃ© 976 in Pacific Beach is hosting an exhibit of the brothers' underwater photography of Indonesia's and Hawaii's underwater seascapes.
CafÃ© 976 owner Anne Dierickx met the brothers on a dive trip to Maui and is proud to host their premiere mainland show.
"They've spent their life underwater," Deierckx said. "All three are 100-ton boat captains. They've had thousands of hours underwater."
The exhibit will feature 15 large framed images of sea turtles, giant rays, humpback whales, colorful fish and strange seahorses.
"One of the photos, titled "˜Seabiscuit,' is a shot of a pygmy seahorse, which is basically the size of a grain of rice," she said.
The images will be on display at CafÃ© 976 through May 31 and the show ends with a closing reception.
