    Snuba in Cozumel?

    You are correct, sir, but you know what I meant :) Thank you making my point much clearer for the nit-pickers :) If you're truly a Padi Pro, you might want to rethink your career choice before you get someone killed. You're obviously not qualified for your chosen field, as this statement is...

    Snuba in Cozumel?

    Bolding and Italics mine. You work at a dive center and this is the information you're dispensing? Are you even certified? Even Basic OW knows that the greatest pressure changes occur closer to the surface....

    Best meal by Restaurant in Cozumel - updated

    I gave this a shot this past Saturday night, and all I can say is WOW! One of the best meals I've ever had in Cozumel, and the price was fantastic. Total bill for a LOT of tender, tasty food and a beer was less than $13 dollars US. Staying at Suites Bahia makes this restaurant very convenient as...

    Travel BC vs. BP/W

    All of this. I do exactly as Lorenzoid describes and I manage to fit ALL my dive gear into a regulation sized American Tourister carry-on. I pack my clothes for a week into a backpack which fits under the seat in front of me and I'm good to go with no checked baggage and all my dive gear intact...

    Currents in Cozumel?

    I've done that same night dive on Paradise with Jorge. We spent an hour going over the same 4 or 5 coral heads, it was just a giant, slow eddy. After the third pass over the same corals, I looked at my compass and it was continually spinning.... We surfaced after an hour within 100 yards of...

    Trip Report, Villa Blanca & Paradise Divers 6/12-19/2015

    There's nothing wrong with your trim if you're aware of where you are and intended to be there. For relatively new divers I thought you pretty much had your act together. As far as the fins go, that could happen to anybody. I'd wager that there's not many people in this forum that hasn't rolled...

    Trip Report, Villa Blanca & Paradise Divers 6/12-19/2015

    This is me, plus the fact that I watch how they dive, i.e. attitude, trim, positioning, etc. I can pick my DM out of a crowd 100 feet away just from his gear and positioning in the water. ---------- Post added June 23rd, 2015 at 10:20 AM ---------- That wing is a definite standout. It made...

    BP/W configuration question

    I dive your same setup, including wetsuit, at Clear Springs and have no problems. This. Take Tobin's advice (the guy knows his stuff) and practice. You'll get used to it and love it, especially when you get to salt water.

    Trip Report - Solo trip to Scuba Club Cozumel

    it is not uncommon for divers to surface alone with no marker, for reasons others have mentioned in their replies: This being one of the main reasons... I agree. I see this done on a fairly regular basis. For the most part, in my experience, yes. If they are cruising at higher speeds...

    Trip Report - Solo trip to Scuba Club Cozumel

    I've done a lot of dives where the DM did not send a marker up, it's not all that uncommon. I carry one of my own and will send it up myself if we're not close together....

    Traveling With Regulator

    I pack my entire rig, including a Stainless Steel backplate, STA, wing, regulators, computer, compass, DAN SMB, fins, i.e. everything ​into a regulation size carryon. Never had an issue.

    Direct flights

    DFW has American and Sun Country non-stop. The only problem would be getting from Dallas Love Field (where Southwest flies into) to DFW to catch a non-stop. You would either pay a fortune for a cab ride or spend a long time on public transit to move between airports. There are no non-stops that...

    Verizon finally brings back discount Mexico roaming packages...!!

    You do realize that Sprint is CDMA and T-Mobile is GSM, correct? And that those are the two types of networks, right? Therefore, if Fi is partnered with both, it works with any type of network. The Nexus 6, which is the only phone it currently works with, works on either network. Sprint and...

    Verizon finally brings back discount Mexico roaming packages...!!

    Google Fi uses WiFi where available. If WiFi is not available, it uses cell coverage. It will switch between GSM and CDMA depending on what network is available, so it's actually better than other phones because it will work on any type of network.
