That's really too bad that you didn't have an awesome experience. I did the manatee trip with Gregory Sweeney in 2014 (http://www.gregorysw...rip_manatee.php) and thought it was fantastic. His trips are all about the photography and as such he keeps his group numbers small, and his itinerary flexible.


I did the trip in a drysuit and I was very happy that I did. We were lucky* that a very cold spell hit.


* Not so lucky for the manatees but the really cold weather was fortuitous in many ways: it drives the manatees into the warmer waters of the springs in large numbers, and the conditions are less hospitable for human visitors so most people don't find they can comfortably stay in the water long (which is good if you're in a drysuit and happy to hang out for people-free vistas).

I don't want to mark "All" as read. I'd like to be able to do it thread by thread like I used to. I was hoping that I was just missing something, not that they had removed this important feature. :-(

It's the Bahamas. I was wearing one too. :-)

My partner Cameron spends a lot of time modelling for me underwater, especially when we cave dive together. This photo is certainly not my best from last year, but it's one of my favourites because it's just Cameron being himself in the water for a change.

Sounds interesting. Would be keen to see photos of setup and results if you have an interest in sharing.


If the magnet is that strong will you not have an issue pulling it off underwater?


Unfortunately magnets won't work for the aluminium tanks generally used in Mexico cave diving.
