Rinse tanks, tables, charging areas available. Camera equipment was well
taken care of by the staff. Some of the diving was a bit tough on some UWPs
- wrestling monster dslr rigs in and out of a panga in heavy chop/surge can
be tricky but the subject matter was well worth it for most.

Phenomenal trip in a truly fantastic location. Schools of hammerheads were
the highlight for me, but the trip included a whale shark, humpbacks, many
giant mantas, dolphins, 4-5 other shark species, large tuna, wahoos, other
pelagics & big morays. Great boat and crew that were incredibly
friendly. I've got a return trip planned already.

The Mexican Navy shut down diving off of Socorro just before this trip, but
Roca Partida and San Benedicto were great.
