    TSandM -- Lynne Flaherty

    I am in total shock over this loss. My sincere condolences to Peter, I am so sorry. And to her friends and family. And to this board, who has suffered a tremendous loss and a voice silenced far too soon. Rest in peace, Lynn, and know you touched so many people.

    A sun Sentinel Reporter Tells of his near miss.

    I think it sounds like he should have dropped his weights and done a safe ascent. I don't see any life threatening event here and his description sounds like typical newspaper melodrama to me. For the amount of time he says he's been diving, this should have been a non-event and if it seemed...

    Reefmaster Mini impressions

    I have the brand new model. I agree about the purple cast although it's easier for me to deal with that than the deep blues and greens of the olympus I was shooting. You'll have some sort of compromise on color at this price point and minus the strobe, which I accept and can work with.

    SeaLife Mini II

    I started a thread with a review, but thought I'd share a few photos here if anyone is interested. I tried mine out today for the first time and it took great photos. I could see my screen just fine (it's a bit dimmer than my Olympus 1030SW but I could still see it fine to line up shots) and...

    Reefmaster Mini impressions

    Hello- I saw there were a few people asking about the Reefmaster Mini and what kind of results to expect, so I wanted to post here and give my first impressions for anyone who finds it useful. I've been diving for a few years and have been shooting with an Olympus 1030SW in that time. I got...

    Being left to dive solo

    Our dive shop provides a group DM/guide in the water but I make sure when people make their reservations that they understand it is a GROUP guide, not a private guide. If you don't have a buddy with you and need/want a guide, I suggest hiring a private guide, as you can get away from the group...

    British Instructor feared drowned in Thai scuba-diving incident

    80 meters? Is that a typo or was it a tech dive of some sort?

    Key Largo weather tomorrow and Friday

    Hi Brian! Hope you're well. If it were me, I'd honestly stay away tomorrow. I think it's going to be nasty out there, I really do. If you have the option of coming another weekend, I would. Take care! Suzette RRDC

    Key Largo Water Temperature and Wetsuit Thickness

    Agreed- I work at a local shop and dive year round- the most I usually wear is a full 3, especially for late October- the water should still be quite nice then. Happy diving! Maybe I'll see you out there :)

    Diving in the Keys since the oil spill

    In the interest of disclosure, I work for Rainbow Reef. The diving here has been nothing short of spectacular this summer. I logged about 40 dives (in between work shifts!) and saw some seriously amazing things. No oil effects whatsoever here, thankfully. November is a nice time to dive...

    Diving Speigel Grove without Nitrox...

    Agreed- from a planning perspective you're assuming you'll be at 120', when in reality that's very nearly to the sand and you won't see anything there. I did the Spiegel last week and really watched my computer- I was at 90' to 100' the entire time. We (my buddy and I) did a 3 minute stop at...
