    T2 in San Pedro

    Thank you J. We have returned to Houston. The plan was to do 7 days of diving but that got waylaid by TD2 and only 5 days were completed. Wind blew and s*** flew. I have noticed some changes in San Pedro. The streets in town are now paved and there are a lot more vehicles. Gasoline engine...

    T2 in San Pedro

    Island divers gives good service and does not make stupid mistakes. They run small boats with 6 divers. I was very happy with them. I cant say that eating out here was as good as the diving. I have been eating at Carambas for 14 years, and regularly on this trip. On Monday evening we...

    T2 in San Pedro

    Hi everybody. I am sitting in a rented condo at Paradise Villas in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. We didn't do too much today because TD2 blew through. We had 5 very good days of diving with Rudy of Island Divers. I was going to take today off anyway because all the activity was making me a...

    McAfee Wanted For Murder in Belize

    The story is ongoing. He is quoted today as saying that he feared for his life if taken into government custody. He is probably correct, but that applies to everyone down there. As for drugs on AC, I heard of quite a few folks down there who were visiting with the "little people".

    Philippine Diving Rocks

    Doc, that first image is kind of how I remember it. As far as the airlines go, whenever something goes wrong the flight attendants smile and say, don't worry, we are United now, LOL. Tickets from Houston to the Caribbean are insanely expensive right now. Since I have the time, I might as well...

    Philippine Diving Rocks

    fisheater, sorry about the cancellation and cost to change your ticket back to the US. They probably declined the pilot's credit card when he wanted to fuel up the aircraft, no dough, no go, LOL. Luck is so relative.

    Philippine Diving Rocks

    I just checked my log and on Nov 5th we dove Beatrice. As I recall the current was strong and all the swimming gave me a backache. Our trip home was a major malfunction. The Continental flight out of Manila was late. About half an hour from Guam they said the United flight to Hawaii would be...

    I can only say the Quantas pilot is a young guy who is very enthusiastic about diving.

    Philippine Diving Rocks

    I did some diving around Sombrero while at Arthur's. All I can remember is extremely lush coral gardens in shallow water. On this trip I completed 20 dives. At Sabang I felt totally dialed in. I actually switched my computer to metric to take advantage of the depth 10cm calibration and spare...

    Philippine Diving Rocks

    We are midway through our first Philippine dive trip. Last week was at Arthur's and now at La Laguna Beach Club on Sabang. My overall reaction is the soft coral is beautiful and small tropical fish are available by the thousands. I am hooked, and will start planning another trip soon. It's...

    Anilao Trip, Sep 9~13 - some words and pics

    I have an email from Lita that they are now accepting Visa and Mastercard. If they change their mind, they will have to take me to an ATM every day until I have enough pesos to pay them, LOL. The Mermaid and I will be getting wet there soon.

    Anilao Trip, Sep 9~13 - some words and pics

    Wantonmien, your comments are right on target in terms of what I am thinking about doing. Sounds like a real international place. I don't want to go anywhere where there are too many guests from the States.

    PG in November

    I am thinking of going to PG this November, also the Mermaid is coming along. Airfares look darn reasonable, especially considering the distance. 1. Is there any sort of a major weather problem in November? 2. Are there still no ATM's in PG? Going to someplace to get a cash advance...

    Airfares to the Caribbean

    Actually, it's called what ever the market will bear. As for Bali, there is great diving there and $1300 is a deal.

    Airfares to the Caribbean

    I have been checking airfares to the Caribbean from Houston. I can't believe how much they are. It's the same distance from Houston to Belize or Chicago, but Chicago is $290 and Beize City is $650. Some of that might be taxes and fees, but if they taxes and fees are than high, then they are...

    Roatan Airfares

    Making predictions is always risky, but oil prices have dropped in the wake of the catastrophe in Japan. We may have seen a short term peak in all airline ticket prices. As for Roatan, the high season in the Caribbean ends around April 15th.
