Dear Divers,

In 2005 there will be TWO Bahamas Adventures with Haas Photography Inc!

Trip #1 over Memorial Day weekend takes you to the Bahamas for 5 days to explore beautiful reefs, snorkel with wild Atlantic Spotted Dolphins and dive El Dorado, your own private reef with Caribbean Reef sharks!

Trip #2 is a 5 Day Shark Expedition with limited space in early June. If you want maximum in-water and surface opportunities to photograph Tiger, Bull, Lemon, Silky, Dusky, Nurse and Caribbean sharks then this is the trip for you!!!! While early summer is not prime season for Great Hammerhead encounters we had a 12' female come by us this year over Memorial Day weekend. This trip is for advanced divers who want to get close and photograph or video these magnificent predators.

Dates and additional details on both trips are below. Visit the link at the bottom for photos taken on this year's trips. Additional images will be up soon at www.pbase.com/dhaas. As usual I provide photo advice for all types of camera to help you get memorable images.


A deposit of $300.00 for either trip secures your spot. Deposits received before October 30, 2004 earn a $50.00 discount on either trip.

All checks should be payable to:
