Underwater Photo Gear

Photo Intensive Week: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Oct 13 - 21, 2017
Call 805-471-4519 for more info.

Join us in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - 8 nights, 6 days of boat dives at the best advanced sites in Banderas Bay:

* El Morro and La Canilla
* Anegados
* Chimo
* Yelapa
* Marietas
* Las Iglesias

Our focus on this trip is giant mantas, whale sharks, and a wide variety of other rays, turtles, eels, and tropicals. We can expect large schools of Jacks and Sardines. Nice topography, caves, pinnacles, etc. - good wide angle opportunities.

We've picked the best time of year (75-150 ft. visibility, 78 degree underwater temps, mid 80's top side temps.)

We are diving with Vallarta Undersea and our group will have a fast, private boat conveniently located just steps from our hotel (Flamingo Vallarta at the Marina.) The Flamingo hotel has a great staff, a nice pool and garden area, and a very cool pool bar and restaurant.

Our group will have an expert guide, and all food, drinks, tanks, weights, and any/all dive equipment you may need on the boat is included. (Bring your own gear or use their high quality gear, your choice.) Limited load - 6 divers. There will be workshops after hours to collaborate on photographic ideas and techniques, and plenty of opportunities for input throughout the week.

Included each dive day: all scuba gear you need, drinks, snacks, and an upgraded lunch. 6 days of boat diving / 12 dives. Most of the dive sites we are doing this trip are about 1 hour ride each way from the marina, so there is plenty of time to set up your gear and enjoy the beautiful sights in Banderas Bay. Expect to spend 4 to 5 hours on the ocean each dive day.

The rest of our time will be at the Flamingo Hotel pool & bar working with images and collaborating, sightseeing, and enjoying the dozens of wonderful restaurants and bars right there at the marina. The resort is a short bus ride (.75 cents pp) or cab ride ($7) to the old town waterfront area of Puerto Vallarta.

You can get airfare and hotel packages, and upgrade to all inclusive (food & bar) for a very reasonable price.
