  1. Hello Everybody, With my wife and my 5 years old daughter, we went to Marsa Alam in May. It was very nice for a first snorkeling trip with my daughter. Nevertheless, we tried a day trip to see the dolphins but we very disappointed : far away (about 1,5 hours by car and then another 1,5 hour by boat and the same for the return), no dolphin on that day (that is nature...) and not very friendly staff... So, we still feel that we missed a very nice trip and the chance to see wild dolphins. And it seems that the diving center took us to Samadai and not sataya... So, we are planning to go back to Marsa alam region in late august and we would like to be more "prepared". For a 2 weeks trip, I think that 3 hotels could be good : 1 next to the airport when we arrive , a second as close as possible to Sataya and a last one near to the airport to finish with. My post is more about the second hotel : I think that it could be a good idea to stay a few days in a hotel as close as possible to Sataya reef in order to avoid the very long trip by car from Marsa Alam. Lahami bay beach resort seems to be the closest hotel to sataya and seems quite nice : do you have any feedback on this hotel? or would you recommend another hotel in this area? Nevertheless, the diving center inside Lahami bay resort is Barakuda diving and when I check on google, the feedbacks are quite bad Do you know this diving center? Would you recommend another diving center? Our main goal is to see wild dolphins in a convenient way (with a 5 year old kid). In addition, we are searching for a place with easy snorkeling , very comfortable hotel and a diving center (in order to be able to dive a couple of times without my wife and daughter). Thank you in advance for your help
  2. Quick video from my recent Socorro trip. Best watched in 4K. Anyone have any tips on reducing noise with Sony cameras when shooting video?
  3. Underwater shots with Sony A1 in Nauticam housing with WWL-1b wet lense and 28-60mm combo. Turn the quality up to 2160p if you can.

  8. HI, I am looking for a bit of advice about using the EM5. I was lucky enough to find dolphins yesterday on the way back from my dive. I had about a 10 minute encounter with two bottlenose and snapped as many photos as I could. However, almost all of them were out of focus. I was shooting on Shutter Speed Priority at 60 and 80 with the camera set to auto focus. That is what I used to do with my old camera, a g12, and never had any issues. So my question is: what is the best focus setting to use for quick moving open ocean species like dolphins, mantas, and whale sharks?
  9. Hello all: Looking at doing the Shear Water Jim Abernathy boat to do the Tiger Beach and Dolphin itinerary This will be my wife and I's first time doing this trip, and was wondering if there was any recommendations people had, for both the Sharks and the Dolphins portion of the trip? One question, my wife had...was for the Dolphins. Do people normal take strobes? Or does this cause too much drag for snorkeling? My wife and I are looking into going on the May 27th sailing. This sailing was originally for their Oceanic White Tip trip, but they didn't get any interest, so they switched over to the classic Sharks and Dolphins Itinerary. If anyone is interested, this might be a good opportunity for a last minute, Memorial week trip, and not have the boat completely full. However, we are currently the only 2 people booked. And need a total of 6. So 4 more people need to join on. They said they would cancel the trip if they don't have that by April 27th. Thanks in advance. Dustin
  10. Hello all, Did a quick video of couple of clips I got on my trip to Cocos on December 14-24 onboard Okeanos Aggressor. We were not exactly lucky with the conditions for this trip as pelagics had a bit of a week off, I suspect moon phase was probably key (it seems that the current trip is having a blast as my friend is still on board :-/ ) That's my first attempt at editing video somewhat moderately complex so things are not exactly tip-top but I like the result so far. I retrospectively should have done a little bit more videos. In the last 4 days, I fixed the GoPro on top of my dome to have continuous shooting. I had left the GoPro magic filter at home, I would have been interested to see the difference. I missed some close encounters not having that where I had a Galapagos shark shooting straight through a channel at coming head on at me, a tiger shark coming on top and behind us while we were busy looking the other way and another one shadowing me for a minute. I never had the video on for those encounters or was of course busy facing it the other way while my head was looking somewhere els The dolphin shooting is courtesy of Capt Alberto Munoz from Okeanos aggressor, we got them again on the next dive and I was busy trying to shoot them on still (they were a bit more nervous). I started to post some pictures on Flickr [vimeo]56530182[/vimeo]
