Comments My trip to Monterey was necessitated by the fact that I needed several fill-in shots for a book I am working on. Both the shop and my DM were outstanding and very accomodating of my photographic needs.

Not only did I get all the photos I was looking for, on the second day of diving we found ourselves surrounded by beautiful moon jellies, and after several minutes a mola mola swam through our group.

Excellent trip, and I will definitaly return and dive with them again.
