Welcome Back: Stephen Frink, Ana Avila, Mark Mintz, Anne Owen, Lenny Rosen, Beth Goodiel, Paula Selby, Lauren Smith, Peter Van Berkel & Annette Cavanaugh
Congratulations: Happy Birthday Mark, Steve, Jim and Nora!

I had seen many of Stephen Frink’s images over the years and had looked forward to meeting him in the flesh.  As it turns out, he’s a real nice guy and brought a great group.

These guys were largely focused on taking photos underwater with the exception of a few and as everyone was acquainted before arriving on board they got right into it as soon as they arrived, setting up gear and getting ready to dive!

Conditions were good to excellent with blue, blue flat water for a few days in Namena Marine Park, making this the highlight for me and many of the guests.

When cruising out to the dive site in Wakaya we came across a group of Mantas feeding and jumped in on snorkel to have a swim with these amazing fish.  It was Peter’s and Anette's  first time to see these graceful animals and they were beaming - ear to ear when they got back in the skiff.  I think that made both their and my day.

Mo found more pygmy seahorses on this trip too.  He is so very good..

The end of trip slide show was fun with many great images to share.

Cheers for the good time Steve and gang.

See you next time!
