Capt, I couldn't agree more on the pictures/bubbles thing. As for consuming the lion fish, preparation is is very important. Those spines are toxic. I'm all for shooting the invasive carnivores.

And leave the knife at home. It won't be needed for sharks and it will only be a hassle for you when it comes to ship's security.

Does Princess even offer scuba at Princess Cays? They didn't when I was there a few years ago. If they do, I wouldn't have the highest expectations for the dive.

I'd bet you'd be able to get help carrying the gear into the water, so you'd likely only have to walk a few feet geared up before you could float.

Good underwater cameras with a depth rating suitable for scuba dives aren't inexpensive. He's unlikely eager to spend the $ for a camera he'd only use 1 or 2 times a year.
