Hi Gang,

I'd like to invite everyone to come on the annual coral spawning trip to the Flower Garden Banks. This years trip is Aug 18-22nd. Yes, it's a Monday - Friday, so you can fly in on Sunday, I'll drive everyone down to the boat, and they you can fly back out on the next Sunday. I'm not organizing the trip or anything, just providing some information.

Here's the schedule:

Scroll down to August and click on one of the three shops chartering the boat to get a "spot." I called Sea Sports yesterday and after me, they had one spot left.

There are already 2 Wetpixel shooters booked for the trip, woohoo!

Still not sure? I went on the trip 2 years ago, and it was amazing! Here are some photos I took with my Coolpix:

It's a pretty good deal. I think it's $600 for 4 days of diving, maybe 4 1/2 this year. You get to do 4 and 5 dives a day. It's not a luxury live-aboard and there is no E-6 processing on board, but I'll bring my laptop and CD burner along.

Any questions?

Cheers
James
