In Topic: Utila is still good?

I did 15 dives there over a 10 day stay I think.  Frequently saw nurse sharks, eagle rays, sting rays, turtles, etc.  I didn't notice much diversity in the macro life but that's not to say it isn't there (I wasn't looking very hard).  Surface intervals are always interesting with very frequent dolphin and whale shark sightings.  Alton's (the shop I dove with) recently had their divers swimming with a gigantic sunfish. 

 

Overall I'd say it's great value and you definitely have the chance to see some big stuff... and party a lot.


Oh and at Alton's I think I paid $250US for 5 nights accom and 10 dives.  Very basic room but right on the water.  shared bathrooms.  cold showers.  Really good value though.

Does this include the actual 17-40mm lens?  Item description seems like it would but your invoice only shows it as a $131 item.

If that dome becomes available at a decent price point I would certainly be interested.

I like the shot.  If it were a raw file and being edited in lightroom i think you could really do a lot more with it.  But to get ideal color and exposure in all areas of this shot from a jpeg image would be impossible without reducing the overall image quality.
