Anyone been to Bimini to photograph great hammerheads? Which dive operation did you use? My internet search keeps coming up with Neal Watson, but I've never heard anything about them. Any recommendations?
Also, is there anything besides the hammerheads to photograph?

Canon 5D mk2, Ikelite housing, Ikelite 125 strobes, 17-40 mm 4.0 L, 100 mm, 24-150 mm L, 100-400 mm 5.6 L

I went there with Jim Abernethy as part of a Great Hammerhead and Tiger Shark trip on the Shearwater at the beginning of December. There was a couple of Bull sharks and a Nurse shark hanging around as well as two Great Hammerheads in Bimini.

But you will see lots of Tiger, Lemon, Reef,Bull and nurse sharks on a trip, you need to be alert to the sharks whereabouts so taking pictures  of anything else is not a great idea. Make sure you have as wide a lens as possible…… They get very close!

A fantastic experience and one I would recommend.
