Jim Church Photography Cruise
Join Mike Haber and/or Mike Mesgleski, both professional photographers & your instructors. They will work with each guest both above & below to ensure you learn new skills & help you capture that great shot.
With Bahamas Aggressor taking you on an eight-day, seven-night cruise into one of the world's most successful marine parks with an area of 176 square miles consisting of an array of more than 350 small islands and cays, you will have ample opportunity for capturing great pictures.
The crystal-clear tropical Atlantic pours over the deep cuts between the cays and constantly shifting sandbars. Waters are thick with coral reefs that are alive with every imaginable ocean critter from the living jewels, angelfish, and butterflyfish, to the charismatic food-chain toppers like grouper and barracuda, right down to the tiniest living invertebrates. Night diving allows guests to experience an entirely different group of critters and bevvy of behaviours not visible during the day. With great food and excellent diving itÃ¤Ã³Â»s an itinerary you will never forget.
