i wasnt shooting this trip but buddies were. they crew tried to be helpful
but the camera tables on the dive deck seemed smallish. plenty of room to
setup in the cabin, but no carpeted surface there.

The diving here seems excellent, the dive shop seems to balance betwween
being a hardcore wrek diving place and dealing with photo people flying in
from everywhere.The group we had was experienced northeast wrekers and the
staff seemed to focus on telling us what we couldnt do, albeit politely.
The wreks were beautiful and the sand tigers seemed to show up as if on
cue. the current can rip tho, a dive on the uboat was quite a ride and
would not have been a place for a beginner-or a northeast nutjob with a
fortyfive minute obligation.  The bunkhouse seemed a little chaotic;the
shop owners wife now runs an antique shop behind it and a word with her
cleared up a few issues.However it is first come,first serve dorm style
housing. be forewarned,the people who showed up at 1230am and found it
overbooked slept on the couches in the lounge. the bar next door was good
eating, not much to do in town otherwise.we will go again, and we will be
there early to get bunks! cya u/w!!
