    December roll call

    I appreciate it - the tank is no problem, anytime a valve comes off a "clean" tank, they need recleaned. I'm guessing the valve is loose in the tank when it's shipped (hoping) from DAN. I'll try and call DAN on Friday or worse case Monday and get the weight and what it is kinda thing. - Thank...

    December roll call

    Anyone coming first week of December that might be traveling light and be willing to bring a DAN emergency O2 kit? I need to call the airlines and find out the exact rules - as far as I know, the valve just has to be out of the tank.

    Both Ferry Companies Running Daily

    You are exactly correct - for the folks cheering that both companies are running, read the fine print - it added two or three trips in the middle of the day when they are slow anyways..... The change is acually about a loss for the folks having to wait in line for two hours...

    Punta Sur/Devil's Throat

    DM's dive these sites what 50-100 times per year? Heck, diving within one company a whole lotta times, with the same person - it was still difficult to learn sites because one person would not dive the site the same way twice in a row - and that was a leader among leaders of DM's..... I hear it...

    ATM vagaries

    It's crazy how the banks hold onto your money and how they get paid in both directions with the conversion rate..... I should have opened a cash exchange place instead of buying a boat jajajaj - but no where near the fun...

    ATM vagaries

    I haven't been in and around all those stores down in that area so I really don't know but, if you are taking a private shuttle to the hotel, ask the driver to detour past the bank in town. As much as you live here - you should have a stash of pesos somewhere jajajaja

    Scooter Rental-LONG term

    A Honda Dio is 31k pesos new. Sometimes the rental scooters can be a little shady - I rent them every now and then from a friend and $300 per month is a pretty good rate but it's lots of money for 3 months in one way. Message me if you want, maybe I could just buy one and sell one for you -...

    Looking for a dive shop offering 4 dives a day

    The Air / Nitrox thing is all profile related - you can't compare diving one place to another without looking at the profiles and SI. One shop here does long lazy SI's - why? Because when you look at their dive profiles, they have an average depth 10' deeper and 20 minutes longer then most...

    Looking for a dive shop offering 4 dives a day

    One thing you will see, on a 3 tank trip with a full boat, they might come back to the marina to off load tanks as there isn't enough room in the boat for the extra tanks - that is if the boat is full or near full. And coming back isn't that bad as it's your SI time, sucks for the fuel used...

    Looking for a dive shop offering 4 dives a day

    I understand the quest for 4 dives a day but I want you to think some about your safety. Some shops will do three tank days, some shops have steel tanks and just do longer dives and 2 a day. I can't say for a fact but the larger boats, the big operations generally work on a schedule, the dives...

    Best place on island to purchase a dive mask

    Cozumel Scuba Repair, he has a lot of masks there... Not the easiest place to get to but it is on Google maps, cab drivers might notknow where it is at..

    Latest entry requirement to Thailand

    There is a point where I think we need to live with Covid - 3 people arrive in Phuket and test positive for Covid? You have to be fully vaccinated and test 72 hours before getting there but yet you can still get Covid in those few days before testing and the travel days - how can you see this...

    Tropical Storm Grace

    Yes - the more you read about things, Charlie is right. Someone is saying Residence Reef is without water for two weeks but they do not say why - lack of their pump power or CAPA power.... They are saying three days for power to be restored but...... @DeltaWardog - don't want to steer you...

    Tropical Storm Grace

    In town, Casa Mexicana area, the marina is fine, just branches and few random trees. Still raining and blowing so not sure how much real cleanup will happen today. CFE is out working - seen guys up on poles in the driving rain.

    Resort Class policies

    You are absolutely right - students have no idea what they don't know and if they ever do know, it's way too late. The comment a few posts above is a shining example.
