Travel Instagrammer of the Week: Alicia Ward

Alicia WardAlicia Ward (aliciaunderwater)
If you love Hawaii and the water, you’ll definitely want to follow aliciaunderwater. Her photos are gorgeous and it’s not surprising that she has over 100,000 followers on Instagram. As she writes on her website, she “took an interest in marine biology at a young age and as she grew older, spent an increasing amount of time in the ocean, studiously observing the surrounding wildlife, then returning home to research all she had encountered. At the age of 15, Alicia picked up a camera, hoping to share the picturesque beauty of the underwater world with her friends and family. She invested time and energy into learning her equipment, improving her freediving capabilities and honing her craft. Alicia is now a PFI certified freediver (Static Apnea: 4:15 | Depth: 126ft), NAUI certified scuba diver and a full time professional underwater photographer.

Alicia’s initial publications were of surfers and wildlife, but she soon replaced surf photography with underwater ‘fashion’ photography and has found traction with her work. Alicia continues to focus on wildlife imagery, promoting respectful and responsible ocean etiquette as well as encouraging conservation and protection for Hawai’i’s endangered marine life. She currently runs her business, See Through Sea, with her husband, Jim. In her down time she can be found searching for Tiger Sharks, baking cookies or exploring the Big Island with Jim and their two dogs.”
