Thanks jmauricio for the additional information!


I've contacted the American Pro Diving Center via email. Their answer was that I should call them. After my reply that I would prefer to book via email since English is not my native language and international calls to the US are rather expensive I havn't heard anything from them.


It's probabaly time to change to Birds Underwater.

Thanks Joe!


American Pro Diving Center is offering two different manatee tours: Crystal River and Homosassa Springs. Did you went on both? Which one is better for photography?


Any hotels you would recommend close to the Crystal River?

Thanks Tom!


I mainly use a combination of f/11 or f/16, ISO 800 or ISO 1600, 1/125s or 1/60s. I never go beyond ISO1600 and really try not to go below 1/60s to avoid motion blur (even with the 15mm fisheye). With the very high DR of the D800 it is often possible to slightly underexpose the image and correct this in PP.

But since I'm always near the surface there is often enough light for a correctly exposed image at f/16, ISO800, 1/125s. When it's not sunny outside I avoid f/16 and mainly use f/11.
