    Does Bonaire have similar sea life and less boats/jet skis than Curacao?

    Have been to Curacao 4 times and Bonaire twice over the past 5 years. Love both islands. They are very different. Bonaire is a divers island. No other island in the Caribbean is a diver's island. Sea life is pretty well the same on both Bonaire and Curacao, IMO. Significantly more shores...

    Priority of skills to master for new divers

    Many things to master and some take a very long time. Here are my top 5 and in no particular order. * Trim/Buoyancy > not focused on in the OW but definitely in the AOW; this gets better with experience * Breathing control > allows you to control your trim/buoyancy and usage; critical and will...

    Sarnia St. Clair River Dives

    Moved recently to west London. Does anyone dive the St Clair River in Sarnia these days. I've heard of the SUC but their Facebook page is over a year old.

    Centeen Park Brockville

    Yes. Water is in the 15-20 foot range. I was last there in August 2018. If there is a class or a lot of other divers, the water at Canteen gets murky and the viz is a few feet.

    New Diver, First Computer

    After a few years of renting a DW, and months of analyzing I finally went for a used Petrel 2. Love it. So much better than the basic Mares and Suuntos that you rent at the dive shop. Best scuba equipment investment I've made to-date. Knock on wood.

    Consumer Reports for scuba equipment?

    ScubaBoard is my version of Consumer Reports for scuba gear and dive vacations. Lots of personal opinions on here which is a good thing. My recommendation is to stick with the name brands. Consider used equipment from a friend or reputable person. Also rent gear and try it out. I have...
