  1. I'm going this year and have been told to book via http://www.realtonga.to/
  2. Although not in Playa del Carmen, I highly recommend Dive Aventuras (http://www.diveaventuras.com/index.php) located down the coast in Puerto Aventuras. WP member Karen and her team have a great operation there.
  3. Despite being stuck on land for 3days during the 2nd week due to Ernesto, Nana and I still had an awesome trip It was the 1st time she had seen whale sharks before - her expressions were priceless on the 1st day when the boat was surrounded by a few of them feeding. Below is a quick timelapse of one of the many drives we took around the island during one of our land days. [vimeohd]47379428[/vimeohd]
  4. Hi all - we've been land locked today due to 'choppy' seas so here are a few images from the 1st day. One of the many spotty fish here feeding on bonito eggs: Nana shooting a self portrait of herself and her spotty friend: Nana and another one of her spotty friends: cheers!
  5. Jeff - have you tried the D800 in your Subal D700 housing? Just wondering if it physically fits and what buttons need to be modified / lose functionality.
  6. beautiful shot Jeff!...and congrats!
  7. Hi all I'm looking for a Tokina AT-X Pro 17mm f/3.5 (Nikon mount). Let me know if you're bored with yours and I'll give it a new home. Cheers Col.
  8. Hi all It was my 1st time diving in the Eastern Fields and infamous sites such as "Carl's Ultimate". I've been hearing amazing things about that site for so long, it was great to finally be able to dive it...and yes, it is an AMAZING site!!! Being surrounded by fish and watching them run along the channels between coral patches in virtually single file was mesmerizing My underwater pics are here - http://bit.ly/xtRM0D Below are a few favourites... Redfin anthias (Pseudanthias dispar) and thousands other reef fish swarm over the healthy corals | Carl's Ultimate Healthy soft corals with a school of fusilier damsel (Lepidozygus tapeinosoma) above | Carl's Ultimate A very inquisitive red snapper (Lutjanus bohar) | Carl's Ultimate A lone golden damsel (Amblyglyphidodon aureu) swims over a field of Christmas tree worms (Spirobranchus giganteus) | Tokyo Express Colourful crinoids | Jellybean Corners P-47 Thunderbolt wreck | P-47 | Port Moresby And as you can see from the slideshow, we had a great group! It's always good to see old friends and to make new friends
  9. I'm not sure if there are any liveaboards that operate out of Thailand to the Andaman/Nicobar Islands anymore due to the distance. However, there is a nice Thai liveaboard called "Panunee" that runs trips in/out of Port Blair (India) - http://www.panunee.com/trip&price2_1.html I'm pretty sure they dive with Rajan the elephant.
  10. Finally got a chance to see the slideshow - awesome!!! Seeing the dragons jump was fascinating - I knew they could run fast but never knew they could jump! ...and Eric, was that a L___o in the Nauticam cube?
  11. Cal My friend and WP member CheungyDiver has modified housings before to add a tethered connection to the housing (http://bit.ly/t1zN6y). Whilst not a wireless solution, this should help and keep you in the pool shooting. Cheers Col.
  12. excellent Shawn!!! I was there last year and will go back in 2013 - can't wait!!!
  13. Awesome shot! - congrats! I didn't realise they had 'buses' in West Papau...
