Another epic July 4 SCUBA trip to the Southern Channel Islands! This year, all of my friends were on board- much to my surprise. We saw more critters this year than any other years I've gone: Over 18 Giant Sea Bass, Tuna, Dolphins, Sharks... The diving was great, in fact this is the best SCUBA diving California has to offer. We even stopped by the little visited Santa Barbara Island! This was my fourth July 4 trip. It has never ceased to deliver incredible diving and incredible fun!
I've always wanted to take pictures underwater, but its such a hassle I dont bother. Then I broke down and bought a Sealife waterproof camera. It was a point and shoot with less than point and shoot quality. It wouldn't focus where I wanted, the flash sucked. I gave up, believing my picture taking days were over. last year a friend Jenny had a nice set-up with incredible quality: A Cannon G9 and waterproof housing. Id always wanted the G10, so i splurged and bought a G10 and housing before this trip! I took it on 3 dives. Dive #4 was where everything went wrong, when I jumped in and descended to
50 feet I saw the camera was completely flooded. So I continued my dive. I threw the ruined camera away a few weeks later after freshwater soaks and subsequent dry sessions proved futile. The $400 camera was dead, a complete waste of my money! I was laughing when I got back on the boat, for I will never take an underwater photo again!!!
