The Nauticam NA-D7000 housing has SOLD. However, I still have the Nikon D7000 DSLR 16.2 MP camera for $350, with an additional L-shaped bracket, and all other items mentioned above.


In Topic: Trip Report: Kasai Village Resort-Philippines

04 May 2016 - 11:07 AM

Well, the diving was ok, not great. There were a few dives that I enjoyed much more than the others. However, like I said, the vis was not so good. The dive guides still thought the March/April timeframe is the best time of year to go. We will not go back but may try other dive resorts in the Philippines next year. Any suggestions? I did not see any sharks, however, a few in our group did see sharks at much deeper depths but too far away to photograph. My objects were to photograph the blue ringed octopus and to dive with the whale sharks. Our whale shark experience was interesting to say the least . . . its a shore dive in Oslob. They have definitely made this dive a commercial undertaking. There were tons of people . . . divers and snorkels, swimmers, etc. From Kasai Village Resort, its approximately 2.5 hrs. to Oslob and the whale sharks. You can not use flash while photographing the whale sharks, which is fine with me. Its a shore dive with quite a swim out to where they are feeding the whale sharks. But once there, it was a pretty amazing experience. You cannot touch them (Yay!) or you will be fined a lot of $$$$. And, you have to keep out of the way of that massive tail. But, all in all, it was wonderful even though the vis was not so great. An experience of a lifetime in my book.
