    A couple questions about the trip. My understanding is there is room for 24 divers on the cruise. Did ST rent the whole ship or did it sail with fewer people?

    Usually we see 18 or 20 divers on the boat. I guess it depends how many singles vs. couples (shared bunk or single) there are.

    This year ST had the whole boat, there have been times in the past where they had a couple of fill in divers that booked direct with Blackbeards.

    Crap you make it look so easy. Those photos are so crisp and clean. The viz is astounding. It's obvious you know what you are doing.You also have a good eye. Me thinks you might have a rapport with the fishes to get them to hold still in such cool poses.

    Wow. Of course the sharks always steal the show but is that a spanish dancer? What lens did you use on the last shot? Great stuff DD.

    I've been diving with DD at CSSP. Patience. His secret is patience. That and a lot of experience. If you are ever in ScubaToys they have DD's pictures for sale over by the cameras.

    As always, looks like everyone had a great time with great pictures. Water looked great too. Missed not seeing everybody. Any good stories we haven't heard?

    In the end, turned out to be a good week diving with y'all. Saturday was a little dicey. Good thing Tropical Storm Erica stayed far enough away. Would have been real disappointed if I had bailed on the trip. Dog Rocks were great. The 2nd dive, "exploration site" might have been interesting, if not for the swells that caused Chris to abort. My new Mares Abyss 52 and Atomic Aquatics Cobalt 2 performed flawlessly. Maybe next year will get down to Pig Beach. Ready to go again on BB number 10! When is ST's 2016 BB trip? 8/27/16? 9/03/16?
