    Cayman possible border reopening without quarantine by April or May!

    How about the dive equipment disinfection processes cited here to address the SCTLD spread? Are these procedures actually in effect/mandatory and required? It could make multiple dives in one day or multi tank boat trips pretty difficult to actually do? SCTLD – Cayman Islands Department of...

    Reminder of boat etiquette as we emerge from covid

    As someone who has stated they never have or will dive in warm water, why would you think that bringing big roller bags on boats is a warm water diver thing? I’m a warm water diver and I’ve never seen anyone bring a big roller bag on a boat. Not a lot of gear needed for warm water diving vs...

    Cayman possible border reopening without quarantine by April or May!

    Good luck - but no way I’d consider Cayman as a destination while the application and periodic testing after arrival are still in effect! To me, it’s just not worth the hassle and risk given what other destinations require at this point!

    Cayman possible border reopening without quarantine by April or May!

    Though it was my most frequently visited and dived tropical destination, I’m in no rush to get back to Cayman given the uncertainty and lack of clarity around their re-opening plans. Just got back from 10 days in Aruba (after a 10 day trip there in July) - perfect weather, great...

    Cayman possible border reopening without quarantine by April or May!

    I'm not convinced they'll actually open this year at all, given the latest trends there and how crazily conservative they've been. I've moved on and booked to other places for 2022. GCM is off my list for the foreseeable future - maybe 2023? Active cases now 320, majority showing symptomatic signs

    Why not download the Petrel manual from the Sheawater website and see if that answers your questions?

    Shearwater Teric extended storage

    I never let mine get below 40% before topping it off.

    Shearwater Teric extended storage

    I charged my Teric to 100% on Sept 13 - just checked it today and it’s at 74%. That seems much higher drain than what I had seen before I used it on my last dive trip in early July. I’ll have to keep any eye on it to see if it gets worse. This unit was previously rebuilt at DiveTronix for...

    Shark diving

    Not me - I’ll be in Fiji in August (hopefully) and steered clear of hitting this area as I’m not a fan of baited dives, but have fun… and keep your head on a swivel.

    Great… but, unfortunately, others have had much a different experience. Take this guy, for one example:

    Shearwater Teric extended storage

    Very bad! Many of us have had Teric batteries replaced (and other related electronics) - some more than once. Your Teric appears to have a severe case of this battery drain issue. Call Shearwater and they’ll have you send it to the US service center (Dive-Tronix) and they’ll get this fixed...

    Shearwater Teric extended storage

    If your Teric needs be recharged every few days or it will drain completely, you have a battery issue and need to send it back to Shearwater for repair.

    Alternative to pseudoephedrine?

    I use a NeilMed neti pot with their saline rinse before every dive trip - I think it helps as well.

    Cayman possible border reopening without quarantine by April or May!

    Agreed - April 2022 trip was a reschedule from something booked pre-Covid and moved twice already. I definitely wouldn’t book anything new there now!

    Cayman possible border reopening without quarantine by April or May!

    As many expected… It seems like it may be time to just write off Cayman as a dive destination as I have no confidence in any opening date at this point. I may just go ahead and proactively cancel my April 2022 trip and book something somewhere else.

    Extremely BAD News: Dutch Springs likely closing permanently ...

    Yu Yup - but it’s the first time I saw anything about anybody trying to preserve the diving there. As it’s a major training site for the area, I’m sure it’s closure could impact new PADI dive certs as I’m not aware of any other place in the area that is convenient. Time will tell.
