    Treasure By The Sea in Bonaire

    I had a similar situation but had paid with PayPal. Submitted a claim and got every penny back.

    GoPro Green Water Footage no Blue on Histogram

    You can get the thin film filter material on Amazon - sets of 4-6 colors - for under $10. Red for salt, magenta for fresh, blue for your light and yellow for the camera and your mask for fluorescent night dives in salt. I forget what other colors are included but I don't think they were useful...

    Any thoughts or insight as to when Bonaire may reopen?

    Not a WAG. Fact. The Bonaire Reporter, if you read it, is a source of actual information about their ongoing governmental policy. Especially about CV-19 and who they are going to allow in and when. As far as a political jab. No jab, it's fact. There ain't no effing miracle coming.

    Any thoughts or insight as to when Bonaire may reopen?

    Forget about Bon until CV-19 is under complete control in the US. In other words - not untill a long time after Jan 20, 2021 - and only if we are lucky and get someone who will deal with the pandemic. There ain't no miracle comming.

    GoPro Green Water Footage no Blue on Histogram

    Buy a magenta thin film sheet and put it inside the case in front of the lens. Or you can probably get a magenta filter to fit the outside of the case.

    Whale sharks 2020

    I would never go to Belize (Placencia) again for any diving, especially not for whale sharks. I plan on going to Isla Mujeres in 2021 if CV-19 is under control by then, and I can get a vacination. I'll be 74 and can't take any chances. PM me if you want an account of my trip to Placencia.

    Any thoughts or insight as to when Bonaire may reopen?

    Latest Bonaire Insider - USA ain't gettin' in anytime soon. Going to be a long, long time till we get this CV-19 under control and even after we do they are planning to wait to make sure it stays under control. Watching the current goat #&%@ thay ain't going to believe it's gone till it's been...

    Cancelled/postponed trips due to COVID - please share your outcomes

    One thing I learned with this experience is to pay using PayPal and spend the money on real trip insurance. It was overkill, but if PayPal had ruled against me I'm pretty sure the full bore travel insurance would have come through. Even if I wanted to re-book with WetPixel I doubt I'd be...

    Cancelled/postponed trips due to COVID - please share your outcomes

    Booked a trip with WetPixel for July 21-27 2020 to snorkel with whalesharks for my daughter and myself. The package included all transfers, hotel on Isla Mujeres 7 days/6 nights, 5 full days snorkeling with whalesharks, and lunch on the boat. WetPixel cancelled (they said posponed) kept my $3000...

    Is bonaire open for US travelers August trip

    I consider this country to be the prime example of an asshat country. Ignorant morons exposing themselves and everyone they come into contact with by making a very serious public health crisis into a political statement. If that isn't asshat I don't know what is. And as far as offending people -...

    LDS Won't + 10% Fill Plus Rated Tank?

    He's blowing smoke. Steel tanks can be plus rated on any hydro as long as the tank had a plus rating on manufacture and the plus test is done. And you also are blowing smoke. If the tank had a plus rating on manufacture it can be plus tested at any point and if it passes the plus test will...

    Is bonaire open for US travelers August trip

    Mexico is not locked down and (IMO) never was. Their rates are spiking. Bonaire shut down and got control and has no reason to allow people from asshat countries to bring Covid in. Mexico has nothing to lose. They are already screwed.

    Rec Diving a Pony

    Exactly what is your basis for stating this. You got data? Or are you just blowing smoke out your butt and expecting everyone to just accept it. I have never, ever heard of a LP hose blow out and only one reg freeflow. It happened in 42°F water at 106 feet. He was my buddy diving the Radeau...
