    Lionfish numbers

    I have been on 4 dives so far this trip have yet to see one. Palancar Caves, Dalalia, Colombia Deep, and Paso de Cedral and not one single sighting. Seems like just a couple of years ago they were everywhere. Sent from my SCH-I535 using Tapatalk 2

    A Short Dive Report From Lake Huron

    Went with a couple of dive buddies out to the Col. A.B. Williams wreck located in southern Lake Huron. I got to do 2 dives on her. She is a 110' schooner that sank way back in 1864. The lake was a bit choppy which made for a slow and splashy ride out and back. Vis was about 40 to 50 feet and...

    Cozumel Humane Society

    During our last trip to Cozumel, we took part in the Humane Society's Pet Escort thing. I just wanted to say how easy it was. Teresa, from the HS, picked us up at our hotel and took us to the airport along with the dog we escorted back. She stayed with us during the check in process to ensure...

    Gilboa dive 7-3-11

    Did a couple of dives at Gilboa today. The place was deserted - kinda surprising for a holiday weekend. Made for some terrific vis. Here's a video of SB member Davemohio feeding the fish at the schoolbus (hit the play button, then hit the pause button and wait for the video to finish loading...

    Right sided tank valve, left sided tank valve

    I am looking into side mount and am wondering how important, if at all, it is to have "mirror image" tank valves. :dontknow:

    wondering about side-mount instruction in SE Michigan

    I have a couple of dive buddies that are tech divers and they are trying to get me to head in the direction of diving doubles, But I gotta tell you, just watching those guys lug their double steels around makes my back hurt. I do like the idea of redundant first stages, and I also like the idea...

    Trip report Casa Del Mar/Aldora Divers

    Flew in via US Airways. I should have figured in the baggage cost because when that is added on, US Airways was not the cheapest way to go. Second time ever on Cozumel (first was in February) and first time at Casa Del Mar. Our room looked out at the sea and the pool and was very adequate -...

    Diving in larger groups than pairs

    In the past I have made some dives with a group. Instead of being assigned a specific buddy, we just stuck together as a group. It seemed like an OK idea at the time but looking back I recall several times when I had to put up my arms to defend myself from being kicked in the head, not...

    Casa Del Mar shore diving question

    If I'm staying at CDM, which, in fact, I am, Am I limited to Del Mar Aquatics to take advantage of the free shore diving? Or would it be possible to dive with someone else, who could maybe drop me off at CDM after the 2 tank morning boat dives with a coupla tanks to use for shore diving...

    Rock Trivia - What's the next line game

    Goes like this - give a line from a classic rock song and the next person has to come up with the next line. Here's an example: "When I was a child I had a fever My hands felt just like two balloons" next line: Now I've got that feeling once again I can't explain you would not understand...

    I'm not feelin' the love..........yet

    I'm heading to Tobermory for the long holiday weekend for some wreck diving. Only about 1/4 of my 30 something dives have been cold water, the rest have been carribean reef dives (Cayman, Roatan, Cozumel). I'll be diving with a couple buddies that are hard core GL wreck divers - steel doubles...
