    Amazing weather predictions

    The new technology is quite often amazing. Here we see two weather maps, today’s and the predictions from 5 days previous. It doesn’t work 100%, but then again, what does? As recently as 1998 when Hurricane Mitch bashed the Bay Islands, Mexico and Florida, we had no idea what was happening nor...

    Liveaboards vs Land Based, marketing & digressions

    From another current thread in this forum, asking about liveaboard diving distinctions between Belize and Roatan, I expand on this, because I think it requires larger, wider view. It’s an ongoing and never ending question. I’ve been doing dive travel both ways since 1968, so if you’re clever...

    DC3 Aircraft wreck dive, Coco View in Roatan, 3D imaged

    The latest 3D modeling of “the Wrecks of Roatan” is of the placed SAHSA DC3 Aircraft out in front of Coco View Resort. The structure of wrecks attract various creatures. Too many people visit these wrecks, only to see what remains of the ship. There is so much more. Slow down, get close...

    Getting “economic stimulus relief” to our friends in Roatan

    Please post here any real-deal methods to get money directly into the hands of our “extended families” in Roatan. Beyond the already known and quite worthy but generic things like RMP, or “book your next trip now” posts....do you know of any “front line”, get-it-to-the people type funding set...

    Our World Underwater OWU 2020 is CANCELLED

    Our World Underwater OWU 2020 is CANCELLED This is way more than us losing a weekend of fun, fellowship, sparkly objects, bad hotdogs, education, cheap plastic crap (CPC) from displayers, and the chance to see Pat Hammer, Karina and a host of other still-stinky SCUBA gods. I met NetDoc, Howard...

    Our World Underwater OWU Chicago 2020 CANCELLED

    Bad news, way beyond not having 2.5 days of “dry diving fun”. The industry is undeniably in a bad place.

    Nora from Coco View (and RTB)

    Lovely and caring lady that she was, she has now left us. Hard to imagine that she could be in a happier place, but surely one of less pain. She made everyone’s arrival process so much more humane. What a kind and gentle soul, we will all miss her.

    Seahorses, Pipefish and Mantas... oh my!

    Last week at Coco View, 4/13-20, the two of us did 27 dives each, my wife did 21, her sister did 0. All had a great week. The mid April, Full Moon week brought pleasant weather and conditions. With CCV located South side mid-island, we only caught a one hour long whiff of the month-long burning...

    Blue Hole Belize, Cousteau Redux- they did find something

    Found this 04-02-19 amid the clickbait newsdfeeds, Newsweek...seems like it's new info here on SB, not really an accident, not really Belize, so: “There were...these odd tracks, crisscrossing circles right around the center of the hole with no indication of what had made them,” she said...
