Dustin lives in San Jose and frequents Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers in Yap. His trips provide him with the perfect opportunity to take incredible images to add to the Manta Ray Bay website which he currently manages for them.
Yap is an underwater photographer's paradise with a huge range of subjects. Dustin has been going to Yap for years. He still keeps going back for more. Subjects range from the majestic manta ray to schools of large fish like napoleon wrasse, humphead wrasse and jacks to over 10 species of sharks to hawkbill turtles to macro subjects like mandarine fish and pipe fish and, if you're lucky, even the occasional whale shark or pod of orcas. The reefs are the healthiest and most diverse he's ever seen in his 30 years of diving. Dives in Yap will keep your lens busy, your trigger finger cramping and your memory cards full. With over 50 know dive sites and only 200 beds on the entire island he rarely sees other divers underwater save for his dive buddies. For him Yap is a magical place, and an excellent place for underwater photographers.
