    El Moro needs help

    To those considering avoiding El Moro after reading this thread, don't! I'm no regular but I went twice on my last trip and it was great (and quiet) both times. As to the supposed ruckus that had to be endured, I say the discussion is pointless without video evidence. I could be swayed either...

    Question Still worth it for someone with janky equalization?

    Nothing to worry about there, I don't think. I actually lost one at some point during a dive and didn't even notice until I surfaced and noticed I could hear 'too well' on that side. It's not like there's a huge pressure differential between the inner and outer section of the earplug. After...

    Question Still worth it for someone with janky equalization?

    I'll second this recommendation. I used Doc's Proplugs for the first time on my trip a few weeks ago and came back with my ears in the best shape they've ever been after diving. They really helped me a lot.

    Trip Report Cozumel- October 10-20, 2021

    They did something similar to me before my departure late September, changing a direct flight into Cozumel to a long layover in Texas. The only reason I decided to put up with United's BS was because it was a direct flight. Fortunately I booked through AMEX travel and I just called them and...

    Question Still worth it for someone with janky equalization?

    My ex wife had pretty bad problems equalizing. We would just warn the DM and stay together, above the group, descending as she was able. It was never a problem.

    Mixing Things Up in Cozumel

    I highly recommend ScubaTony. On the two week trip I just did with them we hit every reef in the south except Maracaibo, Punta Sur, and, ironically for this post, Tormentos. Palancar Gardens is one they like to do with divers new to them, and it's a fantastic reef. But the nice thing about...

    Cozumel what to expect now

    Yes, I think that guy just got unlucky with the short 4 day trip. I just returned 10 days ago from a 30 dive trip there, and there were times it was feast or famine. I had a couple strings of 2-3 days where I just didn't see anything big at all. Then other days it was sharks, eels, rays...

    Garmin Descent MK2

    The watch is not capable of uploading data directly to Garmin. If you never connect it to a mobile device via Bluetooth, it will never be able to upload your data. I believe it also has an option for wifi but I never turned on wifi for my watch. I don't think it uploads data via wifi anyway...

    Garmin Descent MK2

    Yes. And some of us go to great lengths to take our privacy back. Don't normalize what these companies are doing to the public. Facebook and Google, and to a lesser extent Microsoft and Apple, are making the world a worse place to live in with their data policies, among other things. I...

    Garmin Descent MK2

    My understanding is that this is only true if you connect the watch with bluetooth to a mobile device with the Garmin Connect or Dive apps. The watch does not upload data to Garmin directly. I verified this by looking at my Garmin account after doing a couple dozen activities on the watch, and...

    Garmin Descent MK2

    I am with you on this, as I refuse to give Garmin any of my data. Fortunately the open source dive log software Subsurface supports the Mk2i, so that solves that problem.

    Cozumel what to expect now

    They will accept a driver's license at the Intl Hospital, at least they did for me. I walked in to get my test last week not realizing I'd need my passport, so didn't have it on me. They just asked if my name was exactly the same on my license and passport, and were OK with doing the test at...

    Garmin Descent MK2

    I love mine. I just got back from a 30 dive trip to Cozumel where I dived with my Mk2i for the first time. I intended it to be a backup to my good ole' Oceanic VT3, but by the middle of the trip I had decided to make the Mk2i my primary. I liked it that much. The only real problem I had was...

    New Garmin MK2i T1 problem

    I did get the "Approaching NDL" warning quite a few times on my trip. I didn't find it terribly useful but after the previous poster's explanation of how it works I now understand why. I'll probably find a way to disable that. I also would get alerts that I never got to see. I think what...

    New Garmin MK2i T1 problem

    You're right, some kind of walkthrough on the various alerts would be nice. Instead it was kind of a 'learn as you go' thing. You can easily change all those warning settings in the dive and transmitter settings though. My only real issue was that I 'went into deco' on a dive with it, since...
