Subject Matter 3 stars Boat Facilities 5 stars
Overall rating for UWP's 3 stars Shore Facilities N/A
UW Photo Comments The 3-star rating are simply because of this: If you don't mind the fact that the only thing you'll be shooting are sharks (plus some yellowtail and divers), then it's fine. But if you like shooting a variety of animals and angles and stuff like that, you may get a little frustrated. Nature of the beast.
