The Ultralight is Jim's - he flys it.

I took a look at your photos from the Bahamas shark 08 trip and they were great. I mean heart stopping. Have signed up for the July trip and was looking at the lens chosen by you and it was amazing. Did you do the night dive? Was that one tiger? shark face shot taken at night? It didn't seem like there were as many bull sharks as lemon and tiger.

I really enjoyed your gallery.

Yes you are likely to have better weather, though not guaranteed of course. More importantly, the length of the crossing and travel distance for a summer trip for dolphins / Tiger Beach etc is much shorter. We essentially had two days on the out trip getting pounded. I used a Scopalamine patch for the first time, and was very glad I did. Others on the boat were not so lucky. Diving is different as well, as Martin said, the Oceanics being out in deep water

What camera lens do you recommend for the shark expedition?
I have never done this trip and would appreciate any suggestions...

I was signed up for the canceled June trip and have signed for the July trip. It is really useful to read about and see photos of the trip. It sounds great and the water should level out by late July.
It is amazing.
