UW Photo Comments On-board were Mike & Mike, professional photographers from the Jim Church Underwater School of Digital Photography. They provided two lessons a day, plus lots of advice and one-on-one assistance. The boat had ample facilities to store/maintain camera equipment, charge batteries and edit images with computers (the boat's iMac was available for those without a computer).

Comments The best things about Aggressor boats are the crews. CAPT Henri ran a tight ship; the crew was always available to fill passenger needs; accommodations were comfortable and clean; meals and snacks were first class (thanks, Jonathan!). Operations on the dive deck were smooth; cylinders were refilled quickly and without disruption; hot showers and warm towels available for each diver. Since everyone on board was a photographer, the camera dip tank was used for cameras only and the storage area didn't have dive gear on it. A couple of the dive sites were a bit lacking and there were not a lot of large pelagics (couple of sharks only); few barracuda; lots of sting rays & turtles . . . but only 3 rays showed up at Sting Ray City. There were good sites (Babylon was spectacular!). Only one wreck (Russian "destroyer"), but a good one. Emphasis on this dive trip was good photography . . . the crew made it fun . . . Mike & Mike made it meaningful and very worthwhile.
