Kate Middleton and Prince William were one with the ocean during a tour that saw the royal couple dive into Belize on an underwater adventure.

A video shared on couple’s Twitter account Tuesday shows nature hunters jumping their feet into shark-infested waters in Belize, which, according to a social media post, “is home to the second-largest barrier reef in the world.”

For their underwater venture, the couple enlisted the services of scuba instructor Edward Betancourt and his daughter Marisha Betancourt, and the documentary-style video footage was taken by famed photographer Matt Porteous, who accompanies the couple on the tropical trip.

The Caribbean tour was marred by controversy from the start after protests against colonialism forced the couple to cancel their first stopover in Belize. The two dropped their plan to visit a cocoa farm in Belize as planned.
