Greetings Fellow Wetpixelers,

We're doing our demo days on the Spree liveaboard again this year (August 18th-22nd) out at the Dry Tortugas. We'll have all of our newest housing available for demo, including the D800 and 5D Mark III, plus D7000V, T3i, a host of m4/3 housings and more. We might even have a surprise or two up our sleeves.

Here's the info:

A Big Boat.
A Ton of Nauticam Photo Gear.
A National Park.
A 19th Century Fort. (With a Moat)
Four Days of Great Diving.

Join us this August for a 5 day trip (4 days diving) to the Dry Tortugas aboard the Mighty Vessel Spree. The trip includes 4 days of diving in the Dry Tortugas Ecological Preserve, the Fort Jefferson National Park, and the USNS Vandenberg. We’ll have plenty of Nauticam demo gear on hand to try at no extra cost, daily presentations, a nightly photo presentation, and an opportunity to show off your images. Whether you are well versed in all things underwater photo and want to try the latest Nauticam gear, or are a novice interested in getting started, this trip is for you. No passport is required!

What: Trying out Nauticam photo gear

Memory Cards: Please remember to bring your memory cards, at least 1 SD card (1 CF card is optional), 4GB or better is recommended. Class 6 or better to shoot video. We’ll have a few extra to sell but there is no place to resupply out in the Dry Tortugas.

Laptop: Yes, bring your laptop. The Spree is laptop friendly and you’ll want it to process some images.

Cell Phone: There’s no cell service in the Dry Tortugas, so plan on shutting it off. The Spree has a satellite phone that is available if needed for an emergency.

Diving: Diving will be conducted in the Dry Tortugas Northern Ecological Reserve, The Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida Key National Marine Sanctuary and the USNS Vandenberg, conditions permitting. Typical dives will be 50-70 feet, some more shallow, some deeper. We’ll be trying to optimize the diving around good sites for photography. On a couple of the more shallow dive sites, we've made arrangements with the Spree for open deck diving for 1/2 day. This means you'll be able to dive longer and really take your time on some of these great sites.

Dry Tortugas has a nice mix of reef scenery, some large animals including the namesake turtles, tarpon, sharks, and grouper including Goliath Grouper. With a very healthy gorgonian and hard coral population, the macro opportunities are abundant. Night diving will be available as well which can bring out another cast of macro subjects.

I will have the new Nauticam NA-EM5 housing for the Olympus E-M5 and an assortment of lenses for the trip. Looking forward to meeting all involved.
