  1. Thank you for responding. I've decided the time is too short for the expense I will incur and will not be bringing along my gear. By the way, for anyone going to dive in Bonito, Brazil the operation I originally listed is no longer in business. I was told the new operation is http://www.ygarape.com.br/. This could just be the recommendation of local agencies trying to make money but I can say that with all my phone calls and emails going to www.divebonito.com.br I received no response. Sam
  2. Hello, I have travel plans to Sao Paulo, Brazil towards the mid-to-end of July on business. I would like to bring my UWP gear and spend 3-4 days diving as that is the only time I have. My initial preference is Bonito in the state of Mato Grosso to dive the rivers or grottos and hopefully image unique wildlife of the area (anacondas, caymans, river fish, etc...). Having researched the dive opportunities I have only come across a group by the name of www.divebonito.com.br . The diving looks fun and I recognize July is the coldest month of the year in that area but the dive plan seems fitting for a very touristy "in and out" session for inexperienced divers. The expense appears to be great and it seems everyone wants you to book through a travel agent thereby increasing the expense. Does anyone have any recommendations or experience in UWP dive planning in this area? Any advice given this time of year to perhaps other locations and dive operators/guides to consider? I assume Recife and Fernando de Noronha are great places but are they typical reef dives as what one might find in the Caribbean or is there a special photo attraction one can share? I'd really like to make this a UWP trip but would greatly regret the expense, effort, and headaches of trekking all my gear down if perhaps there arent' many great options this time of year, or if perhaps I have to take more time and expense to really hunt down custom guides deeper in less touristy areas. My appreciation in advance for any advice or experiences one can share. Sam
  3. Thank you for sharing your experiences. I am definitely taking a trip out to Niihau. I will check out Koloa Landing also, as I plan on taking advantage of the shore diving. Several recommendations have been given to me to check out Tunnels and to go with a guide who can optimize my experience in finding the best the site has to offer. Thanks again, Sam
  4. Good thing it wasn't on the camera! :-) Thank you, yes, I am booked for that trip for certain! I've since learned you really dive the island reefs once and the other two dives are to Lehua rock normally. Not that I'm complaining and nor do I know the geography of the reef system with respect to the distance Lehua rock is to Niihau but I can imagine a rarely explored reef system like that would be a gem of a place to photograph.

  5. Hello: Heading to Kauai in a couple of weeks. I've read some wetpixel recommendations from previous years but not much in terms of detailed advice on locations to dive and dive operators that offer the best experience for a UW photographer. Which dive operator(s) do you recommend? Specifically no cattle boat operators, wanting to maximize bottom time without depending on lesser skilled divers, and very knowledgeable crew that can point out unique photo opportunities? I plan on diving Niihau for a 3-tank dive. Anyone with reviews on dive operators and favorite experiences to share on this dive adventure? Any other site recommendations for great wide-angle shooting (I don't plan on doing much macro for this trip)? I'm looking for the main posers the island has to offer - sharks, turtles, monk seals, and other unique local sea creatures. Thanks in advance for your feedback, Sam
