    Cozumel Dive Trip, 4 Feb to 10 Feb My wife and I were exactly one year from our last trip to Cozumel. Last February we stayed at the Cozumel Palace and dove with Salty Endeavors. The pandemic canceled our next two planned trips, so we were excited to return to Cozumel to dive again. We were...

    Just Returned from Cozumel; Blacktip and Hammerhead Sighting

    We just returned from our trip to Cozumel and it was a great experience. I will probably do a trip report, but for now just wanted to mention that we saw a blacktip at Punta Sur, and the next day a hammerhead cruised by us at the end of Palencar Horseshoe out in the blue. The hammerhead was...

    Dive Trip Insurance: Dive Assure, DAN? Necessary?

    My wife and I are (hopefully) going back to Cozumel the first week of Feb. We are members of DAN, but have never purchased their dive trip insurance. When we book with Delta Vacations or United Vacations we usually get their cancel for any reason insurance, which usually runs $125 or so. We...

    Scheduled for Cozumel early Feb, Possible Re-Route to Florida. Suggestions?

    As the thread title states, we were very excited to return to Cozumel but the new quarantine requirements may lead us to re-route to a different location, or cancel. My wife and I are both advanced, and typically dive Coz 3 times a year. We have never been to south Florida to dive, so not sure...

    My wife and I have been going to Cozumel 2 to 3 times a year for the last 5 years. We change hotels, but typically dive with Salty Endeavors.

    Sea and Sea YS-01 Flooded

    Hello. I have been using a TG-5 and housing with two video lights for a few years and I wanted to get a strobe to further improve my photos. After speaking to several knowledgeable people I decided to go with one YS-01 first, and then get another strobe later on. I went to Cozumel this past...

    Thoughts on Aqua Safari Dive Op?

    We usually dive with a small dive operator every time we go to Cozumel, but this trip we are staying at Cozumel Palace with friends. Part of the Palace amenities is $1500 of resort credit, and you can use it for diving with Aqua Safari. You still pay the tax, but that makes a two tank dive...

    Are Atomic Regulators More Difficult to Rinse?

    I am still debating which reg set to get, and I have read that it is easy to introduce water into the Atomic set if you don't rinse with a tank attached and pressurized. As I typically dive in the Caribbean, and the operators are 'valet' style, I don't typically rinse my own gear until I get it...

    New Regs, Atomic Z3, Hog d3, Deep6 Scribble?

    I have two sets of regs for my wife and I, both are Aeris A400 with Atmos Sport seconds. We have around 100 dives on the sets, and am looking at getting them serviced. Now that Aeris has been discontinued, it isn't as easy to get serviced as it was previously. I have found a shop that has the...

    TG-5 Strobe Settings

    I just ordered my first strobe. I was going to order the Sea and Sea YS-2DJ, but after seeing the size I decided to get the YS-01. I am not sure I want to carry a strobe that large, it will dwarf the camera and housing. I know the performance is better, but I figured the YS-01 should be a...

    General Housing Storage Question: Remove O Ring When Not Diving?

    Hello. I just returned from Cozumel and had a great trip. I did lose one day with the camera as the O ring on my Olympus PT-058 Housing for my TG-5 was stretched and didn't want to seal correctly. I wasn't able to get another O ring in Coz, but through patience and delicate use of toothpicks...

    New Old Stock, Any Concerns?

    I am looking at either getting my regs serviced after my next trip in February, or replacing with new regs. I have come across a vendor who has some new Aeris regs on sale for a really low price. They have to be a couple of years old since Oceanic took over Aeris a few years ago and no longer...

    Isla Mujeres: Worth the trip?

    My wife and I have been diving for a couple of years, and have done 6 trips to Cozumel, 1 to Roatan, 1 to Puerto Vallarta, and a bit in California. We are thinking of taking a short trip to Isla Mujeres in September, in hopes of seeing the end of the whale shark migration. I know they only let...

    Suggestions for new Computer

    I am in the market for a new computer. I went from a puck style computer to a Deepblu Cosmiq+, and then a Suunto DX with air transmitter. I like the Suunto but I am now selling because I find it difficult to read the small numbers with my aging eyes. I don't use any of the tec features of the...

    Recommendations for first time trip to Belize

    My wife and I are looking at going to Belize. We have been to Cozumel probably 7 or 8 times, dove Puerto Vallarta, and went to Anthony's Key in Roatan last October. We had a great time in Roatan, but would probably still give the edge to the reef in Cozumel. We are looking at Belize as our...

    For Sale SUUNTO DX with Air Transmitter $550

    I purchased a Suunto DX with air transmitter last year from an SB member. It has been great and I have used it on 3 trips, with approx. 30 to 40 dives in that time. The watch was sent to me after being sent back to Suunto for a recall service I believe, and they ended up just replacing the...
