#373011 travel question, can I put my arms for my strobes in the carry on

Posted by DavidSD619 on 26 April 2016 - 06:55 AM

I have never had a problem with all my camera, housing, strobes, arms, and even allen wrenches.  They may inspect them by hand, but once they see it is underwater photo equipment they usually just swab test it for explosive residue and let you go on.  Just be nice and patient and tell them how nice their uniforms look.  :)

Great report and photos.  Nice to hear about a group of people who have not given in completely to fear and are still willing to still explore.

Depending on what your chasing, you'll quickly realize it was made for swimming underwater, and you weren't.  I've followed things like turtles, sea snakes, eels, rays, etc, but only because they didn't seemed to be bothered by my presence.  Trying to follow something like a spotted eagle ray gliding along a wall will empty your tank pretty quick!  I suggest you approach whatever it is slowly, if it is not bothered by you, it will let you swim with it.  If it doesn't want you around, it will keep the distance between you and it constant, or just swim off.
