The camera he used was a Canon a95, and the case was an underwater housing unit -- the wpdc50 model by Canon. He thinks it was about $150 at the time. He was worried the housing unit would be faulty and essentially damage his camera, but it worked like a charm and he's continued to take fabulous underwater pics of all our snorkeling and diving adventures ever since!!! So def. worth the investment especially if you're water people wink.gif

Thank you ladies!!!
Sorry for the hijack!!

Gorgeous, amazing pics!

 

Swimming with sea turtles was one of the most amazing things me and my fiance have done together...we unexpectedly found 2 huge ones at Francis Bay in St. John USVI and spent hours looking at them.

 

This has brought back great memories! Thanks for sharing!

I just saw this thread and we have been to Akumal a couple times and love it. It is actually one of our favorite swimming spots. We also just swam out to see what we could rather than pay and found 3-4 turtles every time. The reef is also great and I took some crackers in a bag to feed the fish. It was awesome. Love it. So ready to go back!
