    Puerto Vallarta Diving

    I posted the report last week. Here is a link. I have never been to Islas Marietas so I can't help you there. J https://scubaboard.com/community/threads/trip-report-puerto-vallarta-oct-15-to-21-pv-ocean-tours.613898/

    TG-5 Experts, Movue Mode vs Rec Button?

    Is there any difference between selecting movie mode and pressing the video capture when in A or P modes? Thanks.

    Hi Rich, I am pretty sure that Marc would do almost anything you wanted. I wanted to do a night dive, but we did not as the lower visibility would have made it less enjoyable. On lower vis night dives I have found you spend most of your time making sure you don't lose your dive buddy and less...

    The sea turtle hatch was around 5 in the afternoon. We stayed at Dreams in PV about 10 years ago (now a Hyatt Ziva) and they always did a sea turtle release in the evening. We were surprised to see them that early in the afternoon, but it was very cool to watch.

    Trip Report, Puerto Vallarta Oct 15 to 21 My wife and I just returned to Puerto Vallarta after a 4 year absence. We have been there quite a few times, but in the last 4 years we have predominantly been going to Cozumel. We booked flights on United (not my favorite, but had award availability...

    Puerto Vallarta Diving

    I am in PV now, and just finished 5 days diving with PV Ocean Tours. We have dove here before, but our last dive in PV was 5 years ago with PV Ocean Tours. I am going to do a trip report when I get home, but for now I will just say I highly recommend PV Ocean Tours. Marc and Alun are great...

    Do any All Inclusive / AI Resorts have included / unlimited diving?

    If you stay at Cozumel Palace (really nice, but also expensive), you can use your hotel credits to dive with Aqua Safari. Two tanks per day. No night dives. I did it once, but I didn't really like the larger, slower boats and bigger groups so we went back to paying for our usual dive op...

    Socorro Oceanic Manta Unique Behavior

    That's really cool. I have only been fortunate enough to get close to one Manta. Beautiful animals.

    Private or Dedicated Guides / Spotters...

    On my recent trip down with Salty Endeavors I dove with Martin and he was amazing at finding macro. He is a former commercial diver so has some good stories about living underwater for 56 days at a time. Unfortunately I had my wide angle lens on the camera so the shots of the small stuff...

    Great write up and pics. What is your camera setup? I have a TG-5 with YS-01 strobe and backscatter wide angle. I just tried the strobe for the first time and had mixed results. I will try some macro nest trip without the wide angle to see if they are better. You photos are excellent.

    Trip Report Trip Report, Fiesta Americana Feb 4 to 10

    We have stayed at GPR twice and Cozumel Palace and Fiesta American once each. It is hard to really judge Fiesta Americana since it is post-covid, and the others were pre-covid. Coz Palace is definitely the poshest resort, and I thought the food there was probably a tad better than the others...

    Covid testing in Cozumel

    Geez Tridacna, you have been awful snarky lately. Why so much bitter sarcasm? I don't read anything superhuman or super wealthy in his post. I realize you think anyone who travels now is a bad person, but maybe you should take a break for a while.

    Most of the places we went they held the scanner to your wrist. My wife is a nurse, so she really got a kick out of that. Not exactly the desired placement of the scanner.

    Thanks. I have a TG-5 with Sea and Sea YS-01 and a video light. I also had the Backscatter wet wide angle on for the whole trip. I think I will try to do some macro next trip. This is also the first time to try to use the strobe and it was frustrating. Some photos came out good, a lot were...
