1 - to my mind a good place is where can just and snorkel. Want
to avoid places where only way to snorkel is off a boat.
Off a tour boat can be fun but is no use for serious underwater photography snorkeling.
You are diving
up and down in the same place to get your shots while everyone else swims off.
I have seen a laggard nearly left adrift in the middle of the Indian ocean. Counting guests back on board wasn't a high priority.
Need some internet access to help identify all we have photographed.
We don't want other people's timetables, tours etc. We want it simple.
2 - is useful to supply non-specific gear ie if you use
lead. I don't want to be lugging lead on a
plane (but now do just that to be sure after problems in Lahami Bay and St Lucia).
The dive centre will also advise on where to go, currents and probably will have more fish ID books when
your book is missing something.
3 - nice if it covers although clearly this will vary.
4 - nice to know. Coral adds to the photographic
possibilities. Also, a shame to get a stunning fish against dead coral backdrop.
5 - - abundance and variety
This is intended to become a helpful resource section for snorkelling photographers.
Please, draw on a map or do a sketch to show your suggested places and points of interest,
take a picture of it and email.
