I was diving for a week in Roatan, an island off of Honduras. I took about 750 pictures over the week, and thought I'd post a few of them here. Click on picture to enlarge:

I also got a chance to go down to 1400ft in a 3-man submersible to view a shipwreck and a 20ft six-gilled shark. I have a few pictures, but nothing spectacular. You'd certainly have to experience it for yourself!

All submarine pictures in their own gallery (http://www.chrishorne.com/gallery/Submarine), including a picture of the remains of a diver who made a suicide mission off the edge of the reef wall...

Even when we turned out all the lights, there was still sunlight making it down to 1400'. The operator said that sunlight makes it down to around 1800' before finally getting truly dark.

that suicide diver is eerie
was there anything left besides gear? Bones?

Actually, no - just the gear was left. What was most interesting was that the gear was all still in tact as if the diver was just gently removed. Apparently, only small criters found the body and no large sharks or anything to move things around. We didn't get close enough to really see anything specific (although I could see the regulator)...
