Epic trip. Thanks for organizing this. Thanks for the pictures it was a great group of people and I am sure we will travel again soon "
Thanks for a fantastic trip - it was beyond what I imagined. I did not expect so many whale sharks and to get so close to everything. "
What a great trip I had. Thank you for the photos of me with the whale sharks. I did not realize until talking to people on the ferry that we were so lucky to get whale sharks together with mantas and so many. Not everyone does so thank you for the effort. "
Thanks for the images and thank you for a great trip. We really enjoyed ourselves. We loved the sharks as well as the group we were travelling with. "

Thanks It was an Awesome trip "
thanks for the pictures! They remind me of the nice trip we had! I am back inside another ocean: an ocean of troubles and problems at work and our tigers and hammerheads seem so far away.... Pity .... "
I always have a great dive trip with you. Thank you. So many sharks this year - it was the best trip. "
Both trips were great and exceeded my expectations, which I am really pleased about given the distances involved in doing them…. I also had a great laugh and learned a few new jokes too
Thanks so much for these, Gregory. We really had an amazing time and really enjoyed both the adventure and the company. I’m still going through my photos. Hope to dive with you again soon
Thanks for the images, they are great! We had a great time with you last week and have a few images that turned out ok. Underwater photography definitely is a work in progress for me.
Thanks for the photos. Great trip! I am looking forward to the African trip next year with you!
Thanks for the photos of me, appreciate it , thanks Greg. Good times once again. See you next time.
Hi Greg, had a fantastic trip, Wish I could have done the whale shark trip, looks like you had great success. Hopefully will meet up on another trip sometime
hank you for organizing a great trip.
Thank you so much for this summer's adventure and being a great leader for me and for everyone. I had a great time with you as usual. Hope to get together soon.
Had a great time, but glad to get home from my awesome adventures. Thanks so much for the images… It truly tells a story when you can see how small we are compared to the beautiful “gentle giants.” We had an awesome time! My son Owen loved every moment of it. Hope to definitely join you again on another adventure!
Thankyou for the hospitality during the shark trip. I really enjoyed the trip and thank you for the photos of me
We had a great time meeting new people and diving with the sharks. I was really thrilled iwth my photos. Looking forward to Africa next year with you.
Had a great time in the water and topside. And, I salute your restaurant selections! I'll be back for more... you're a topnotch guide and host. I will be back for more. It was heaven.......the sea gods conspired with a full spawning moon and filled the water with so many eggs that the manta were swimming upside down in rapture while swallowing masses of eggs. Thank you.
Thank YOU Greg for leading an epic adventure!
I had a wonderful time. I'm really thankful to you.
Thank you for your kindness and hospitality!! I really enjoyed !! We will never forget swimming with sailfish. I'm looking forward to seeing you in Africa!!
We all appreciate your kind cooperation extended to us during our stay at Isla Mujeres. Wishing you a pleasant stay as well as fantastic underwater encounters! See you again.
Thanks for everything - another great trip!
We just wanted to thank you for a great week. We had a wonderful time and really appreciate all the hard work it took to make it run so smoothly. We enjoyed the group and have some cool photos and video to show friends and family. Thanks for a brilliant week, we loved every minute of it!
Another fantastic trip, I would do it again.
We had a magic time up in Churchill, Canada, on our Polar Bear photography trip. Caught up with old mates and shared another adventure. It was a well organized trip. Our last day in Churchill was our best. Our capable adventure organizer, Greg , arranged for a highly experienced local guide and a private small bus for the five of us. Thank you for a great trip
Thank you great, it was a wonderful trip. Great to see you again – it has been a few years since I went on safari to your lodge.
Awesome trip - thanks for a great week and all your help
What a great trip. Hope to travel with you again
Thank you for the photos of me with the sharks. I had a wonderful experience being with sharks
I loved the shark diving! I look forward to going on another trip.
We are very selective on the type tour we go on being tour guides/owners ourselves, so after our first whale shark trip with Greg we had to do another one! From the moment we signed up, Karen was extremely helpful with the information about how to get there, suggestions on taxis service, hotels, making us feel comfortable going to a strange place. Once there, Greg was so much fun and attentive and full of history and information. Having been to these places many years previously, he knew wonderful places to eat too! CEVICHE our favorite!! Their attention to detail, experience and knowledge of the marina life is what brings us back. If you are a new or old photographer, it's the perfect trip ! Can't wait for our safari in 2016 !!
A bucket list Trip! Thanks for an incredible week an amazing experience and only made better by the incredible people involved!!! Can't wait until next one! Now can start to get excited for my African Safari with you!
Thank you for the Bahamas trip . It was fun
My video and still came out really nice. It was a really fun trip and enjoyed meeting everyone! We would love to do the hammerheads in Bimini next year for sure, but we may also like to do the wild dolphin trip as well. Both sound like a great time! Thanks again! Let's stay in touch!!
I had a great sailfish shoot with photographer Greg Sweeney in Mexico this month--rare encounters with dozens of these hungry predators attacking sardine bait balls. The way Greg runs the trip works for me: early morning shoot times and we can all get in at the same time. - Tim has decided to return with us for Whale Sharks this summer.
Just a note to thank you for all your efforts last week. Kurt and I had a great time. You’re a cool dude and I appreciate that you are intelligent and funny and intrepid. I’m already talking to my friends about South Africa and whale sharks and other ideas. I definitely hope we meet again. Thanks.
I very much enjoyed this trip with you. I had such close encounters with whale sharks and mantas I was surprised and happy. Thank you and I will travel with again.
Our photo safaris are for photographers and non photographers who want to get up close to large marine life. All of our trips are to destinations proven to be reliable for great encounters. Gregory Sweeney is on hand to help guests with camera gear and techniques before and during the trips. We have been hosting Shark Scuba trips on the MV Dolphin Dream for 10 years.
