Lynn Funkhouser, who was originally scheduled to present The Philippines tomorrow night (10/12), has been forced to cancel her appearance and in her place Chuck Tribolet will share some fantastic images from the Sea of Cortez.

Tribolet, was born and raised in the Arizona desert, Chuck is an avid diver and long-time NCUPS member. Past presentations have included the realities of rebreathers and his Ph.D. (Push here Dummy) underwater photography education series. Active in the local dive community, Chuck maintains a web page providing weather and dive conditions for the Monterey region, and is a moderator of the ba_diving e-mail list. Active in all sorts of nature photography, Chuck also belongs to the Bay Area Bird Photographers, Wildlife Photographers of Silicon Valley, and Monterey Peninsula Underwater Photographers. He supports his Nikon habit working in Silicon Valley as a software engineer. Though best known for diving Monterey over a hundred times a year, Chuck often makes a trip to warm water, traveling to Fiji, Cocos, Australia, Belize, Turks and Caicos, Hawaii, and Tahiti.

Last year, Chuck returned to his desert roots, diving aboard Rocio del Mar, a liveaboard dive boat operating in the Sea of Cortez. It mostly dives the Midriff Islands about in the middle of the length of the Sea. It picks up in Puerto Penasco at the north end, only about an hour and a half into Mexico. Tropical diving you can drive to, no TSA, no luggage limits. Chuck and life buddy Linda Reisinger loved it. The photo subjects are mostly macro, but divers occasionally get to snorkel with Sperm Whales and almost always with Whale Sharks. Chuck will present his images from the trip.
