A friend of mine invited me to go on the "Super Bowl" of shark diving trips! Joe Romerio of 333 Productions booked Tiger Beach with Jim Abernethy. There were 10 of us on this trip, all hand picked by Joe so I got to be with some phenomonal photographers! We left out of West Palm Beach on Jim Abernethy’s live-aboard The Shear Water. Very comfortable and well maintained boat. And what a great crew he has! We were definately in good hands. We were going to leave at 7pm but the wind was 35mph with 4...

This was my 7th "Great White birthday" spent out at Guadalupe Island cage diving with the white sharks. Guadalupe is my magic place in the world and I’ll continue to spend my birthdays out there until I can’t get my old ass out of the cage anymore! LOL Our adventure started in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn in San Diego. We all (16 of us) boarded a charter bus that took us to Ensenada, Mexico to get on the Solmar V. Man! The Solmar V is a REALLY nice boat! You can check it out at www.solmarv...

I’ve gone out to Breakwater in Monterey twice this month to try out my new camera. The first day was Aug 2nd. There were jellies everywhere! All different kinds. Most were floating around on the surface and I got a few good pics. I posted them in my photos. I went again on the 13th and to my shock, all the jellies were being held down on the bottom and being eaten by starfish! I didn’t know starfish ate jellies! There were hundreds of them! All being held down by the tentacles! I posted one pic ...

I’ve got to say this was one of the sharkiest trips I’ve been on so far! We arrive at Guadalupe at around 10am on Oct 12th. We anchored a few hundred feet from shore in Prison Cove. We were in about 200ft of water. A beautiful sunny day! 80 degrees and a slight breeze. The water there is the most amazing blue with over 100ft vis! We got the cages in the water and not 10 minutes later had two sharks! 2 males around 12ft long. One of my most favorite parts of this trip is to see the looks on the f...
St Maarten July 2008

I just spent a glorious week in St Maarten. The diving was awesome! Did 12 dives all together over 6 days. The dive shop and boats were right there at the resort! How convient is that! I dove with Dive Adventures at the Pelican Resort. Great people! They really made the diving fun. They gave us the most out of our air and didn’t cut any dives short based on time. Most dives were between 50-60 ft. The shortest dive was 41 mins and the longest was 56 mins. Almost all dives were in the 50 min range...
