Really nice photos, Chris. It's encouraging to see such high quality images coming from a digital set-up.
I also appreciate how the Sea Divers trip didn't insert itself into the middle of a marine mammal rookery. I guess it's OK for a one-time experience, to say 'been there, done that' but for humans to intentionally put themselves into a high concentration of large, highly intelligent animals can't be entirely good for the animals, or the humans. As your photos illustrate, it seems more natural to let them seek you out, on their terms, as you explore a reef or kelp forest.
