I have to give another Scuba Club recommendation as well. Shore diving whenever, and I never had any problems (from the dive masters) straying from the group a little to get a good macro shot. I did however prefer the 60mm over 105mm for ease of use in current. You will learn how to time your shots and doing flip turns for getting the shot (you'll understand once you do it). We have done some dives with no current and some where you just hang on to your camera and enjoy the ride.

If you get a chance to dive the Cenote's I would highly recommend it.

We've been diving the Keys for that last 6 or so years during Sept. and Oct. and have been blown out once (ended up in Costa Rica). We did manage to do a trip between hurricanes once.

That time of year is always unpredictable, but the odds are probably in your favor (slightly). I would however either purchase trip insurance or place your final payment as late as possible just in case.

If you catch it right the diving is great but usually always good unless right behind a hurricane.

We flew with them in February of '08. They didn't even check the weight coming or going, in fact I had camera vest with me just in case. They were the most accomodating of all the airlines over checked baggage weight (combining to determine total weight instead of per bag which helped).

Hopefully someone has flown more recently to offer their input.

My 125's do it as well. I have always assumed that it was the capacitors being pulse charged in order to keep full charge.

I have noticed other non-Ike(old pentax and nikon) strobes that do this as well.
