Join Eric Cheng and Alex Mustard in an underwater photography expedition to Alaska in June 11-23, 2011. We'll be aboard the liveaboard dive vessel, the Nautilus Explorer, for 13 days of exploration between Sitka and Ketchikan.

Photographic subjects will likely include beautiful Alaskan topside scenery, kelp forests, white plume anemone forests, Steller's sea lions, rockfish, anemones, crabs, shrimp, amphipods, ratfish, and much more. Reef walls are nearly 100% covered in bright orange, red and yellow invertebrates! I can't wait to go back.

Earlier this year, Nautilus announced the Nautilus Swell, a new boat in their liveaboard dive fleet. The Swell is a beautiful, 90-foot ship with 7 ensuite staterooms that accommodates up to 14 divers.

Wetpixel's June 11-23, 2011 expedition to Alaska will now be aboard the newly-refit Nautilus Swell and will run from Juneau to Sitka. Switching to the Nautilus Swell from the Nautilus Explorer actually makes for a better trip because only 12 divers will be in the water at once. Diving is still done from the 38-foot dive skiff (previously used for 24 divers on the Explorer). The skiff becomes a floating dive deck with lots of room for storage, and once you set your gear up, it stays there.

We will be taking a maximum of 11 guests + trip leader (12 total). Trip leader Jason Bradley is an accomplished cold-water photographer and runs regular photography workshops both on land and sea.

5 spots currently available. Cost is $4,650 per person for double-occupancy stateroom or $5,350/person for double-occupancy superior suite.
