According to their website, it's called pyrosome.
"Scuba divers diving off the coast of the Philippines' Ticao Island bumped into an amazing creature collection called a pyrosome."
Pyrosome, according to WIKIPEDIA:
Pyrosomes are free-floating colonial tunicates that live usually in the upper layers of the open ocean in warm seas, although some may be found at greater depths. Pyrosomes are cylindrical- or conical-shaped colonies made up of hundreds to thousands of individuals, known as zooids. Colonies range in size from less than one centimeter to several metres in length.
A young pyrosome colony found off Atauro Island, East Timor.

This is the first time I've seen these sea creatures. Truly, the sea life is amazing! And we have yet to see it's true beauty. I think that's awesome! Those divers are lucky.
