A friend of mine owns TopDive, which is supposedly the best dive outfit out there (anyone else know otherwise?). I went out there to do their website design some time ago, and it was absolutely gorgeous. clearest water I've ever been in. Let me know if you need an introduction, or, you can get in touch with them through the site.

It was perfect for their brochure: old dudes with young wives. I feel like I'm back in Rancho Santa Fe! :)

The captain used the little fans to blast me with water, too. Actually, shooting digital here was a lot of fun because I got to show them the photos I had just taken of them.
