BIO: Scott Johnson has felt drawn to the sea and its creatures from a very young age. As a child, he made frequent trips to visit an Aunt who lived in Miami Beach, FL. Sitting spellbound for hours he would simply listen to the waves roll in and wonder what lied beneath the water's surface.

That curiosity eventually led to his first ocean dive. Johnson carried with him an underwater camera, although he had no previous interest in photography. But from that first dive a strong desire to capture the essence of his underwater experiences quickly developed. Working as a freelance photographer and writer, he has traveled extensively in the Caribbean as well as explored the South Pacific and Middle East. And he counts Cocos Island, Costa Rica among his favorite destinations.

Johnson's images have been recognized in international competitions and appeared in numerous publications, including major diving magazines, as well as in calendars and advertisements.



I am back. Back in Bermuda for the second time this year. I was here only a few months ago to write The Bermuda Files: The Case of the Wrecked Ships, which appeared in the September issue of Skin Diver. I enjoyed the adventure so much that I decided to return on my own dime.

This trip also holds special significance because I was re-married yesterday, so it is both a honeymoon and a dive vacation. And yes, I had to list the honeymoon before the diving because my new wife, Kimberly, is looking over my shoulder.

My plan is to dive a different wreck over the next three days while Kimberly is pampered at our hotel, the luxurious Fairmont Southampton Princess. Nancie Hall, the public relations director for the hotel, is rolling out the red carpet for the trip. She has put us up in a honeymoon suite, arranged a horse carriage ride and organized my diving itinerary. As such, I am compelled to say "Thank You!", "Thank You!" and again, "Thank You!" my dear Nancie.

Right now, I must prep my gear for tomorrow's dives and then commence with the post wedding activities. Ouch! Kimberly just convinced me to reconsider my priorities again. On second thought, the gear can wait until later.
