In Topic: Blue Heron Bridge Eel

Hi Matt,


This looks like a species of snake eel that is often referred to as a "Whip Eel" or "Sooty Eel." Most likely in the genus Bascanichthys.  I have seen them at BHB before, but they are apparently a rare find.  Doesn't seem like there's much information out there on this group of eels.



In Topic: Diving on the Big Island

Lots of good diving on the Big Island and quite a few shops to choose from.  I don't know anyone who offers 4 tank trips, but Jack's Diving Locker has 3-tank "Advanced" trips.  This is the way to go if you have limited diving time.  I know there are quite a few folks on Wetpixel who don't like Jack's Diving Locker, but I've had excellent experiences with them on their 3-tank Advanced trips.  They usually take you to places that are a longer boat ride from Kona.  The sites I've done on these trips were fantastic, and it's usually only about 6 people per boat on the Advanced trip.  They also do the Manta night dive.  Most shops offer this... all the boats arrive to the same spot around the same time in the evening.  Tons of divers in the water, but they also take snorkelers.  There are a bunch of excellent shore diving opportunities on the Big Island also... just do a Google search of Big Island Shore Diving.  I've mostly shore dove with a couple of boat diving days every time I've been there.  The shore diving spots are also good for snorkelers.

Agree with the above posters... ULCS arms and clamps always in the carry-on and never had an issue.

Thanks guys. I think I may get the Sigma 50 macro and take my 100 macro plus subsee +10.

I'll already have a 1.4x TC for shooting with my 15mm fisheye, so may try that on the 100 as well.

Simon - looking forward to staying with NAD in September. Thanks for the input!
