I did not bring my Nikonos on this trip but I dove with a Photographer and
she was able do her thing.  Very accomodating.

I enjoyed the experience.  Boat was clean and organized.  One day they
missed the count on the number of Nitrox divers and were shore on Nitrox
tanks.  Dive site explanations were good and not too long.  Some newer
divers on the boat were disappointed in the amount of service by DiveTech. 
I prefer to set up my own gear so I had no problem with the service.  

We dove along the North Wall and diving was very good for winter diving. 
The water was among the calmest I have ever experienced for boat dives.  No
big creatures but lots of small fish and many juveniles.  Many great photo

In sum,  I would dive with them again and perhaps take advantage of the
some Tech Training which is also available.  

I wish I had brought my Nikonos or had a housing for my Canon DSLR.
