Nick at Sunn Odyessy Divers took extra pains to point out great photo
subjects.  He really caters to the U/W photographer.  His shop has U/W
photo gear for rent and is experienced in the U/W Photographer Specialty
diver certification.

The Good - We had a great 2 weeks at Island Seas Resort on GBI.  Sunn
Odyessy Divers owned by Nick Rolle is just around the corner.  We dove with
Nick the first time after our (then) regular dive operator was on vacation.
 What a lucky break!  Nick's operation is well run and his level of
knowledge, patience, and experience are second to none.  The dive trips
usually have 6 to 8 divers max.  Our 12 year old Grandson, Spencer, got his
Junior Open Water Certification during our stay and we have created a
monster!  Nick was extremely patient but very thorough with Spencer's class
and pool work and his O/W Dives.  A big "Thanks" to Nick, his
wife Karen, and his Dive Master In-Training Cadron.  I don't know why but
the number and variety of fish seemed to be down.  We saw no sharks and
very few large fish.  But all-in-all a great trip and can't wait to get
back there.

The Bad - We saw tons of the beautiful, but invasive, lionfish!  They were
spotted at all depths from 100' to 20'.  I got some great pictures of them,
