      Love your trip report and pictures. We were there 4/14-4/28 and planning to go back in October. May I ask you....where did you find that yellow frog fish? We looked all over for one. Beautiful picture of the turtles. We only saw 2 small/young ones from a distance.

    Dive History:
    All over.
    Certification History:
    Happy to be "just" a NAUI Instructor since 1980.

    NAUI Instructor #5936

    Dive Equipment:
    Only the good stuff.
    I got certified in 1978 as part of a radio station promotion to set a Guinness record for underwater broadcasting. I became a NAUI Instructor in 1980 and have taught thousands of people over the years. I've logged over 5000 dives, don't teach as much as I used to, but still love helping people discover the underwater world. I lead all of the Reef Seekers foreign trips (Sea of Cortez, Yap, Palau, Bonaire, Midway Island, Fiji, Maldives, Papua New Guinea, Cayman, and the Bahamas are just a few of the stamps in my passport) as well as diving locally. I've served as chairman of Chamber Day/Eve since the early 90s, have been a volunteer Diver/Team Leader at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach since 1998, shoot photos and write for local and national scuba publications, and am a familiar face to television viewers in Los Angeles. I've also hosted various TV shows, commercials, and infomercials that have run nationally and internationally. I hold the Reef Seekers deep diving record of 3500' . . . but I add the caveat that I did it in the Alvin submersible for a PBS special so that might be cheating.
