    Question What do you think of the Teric as a dive computer AND wearing it as a watch?

    shearwater’s comparison chart shows “vibration and audible beeps” for Teric—is the difference in how configurable it is?

    Mounting Dive Computer on Camera Tray?

    I sometimes strap my primary computer to a float arm, putting it in front of my face without changing camera or body position. The obvious risk is dropping the camera, e.g. if I have or another diver has an emergency. I once saw a photographer leave a boat with two SLR rigs, head off on his...

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    No quarantine for unvaccinated travelers, entry with just an antigen test for the first time since reopening in June—looks like they’re watching the world accept Omicron being uncontrollable but quick, together with a raft of cancellations hurting the industry (good stuff on VRBO these days)...

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    I don't see this change as Bonaire's having given in--just adjusting to the facts. The numbers of positives among "visitors to Bonaire" have been fairly low -- eight Wednesday out of 158 positives, although it was 25/96 on Tuesday (compared with 30/59 on January 2). It makes sense to me that...

    East coast currents

    My bride has two knee replacements. She loves diving with East Coast Divers. There is surge and can be some significant wave action, but not much by way of current in our experience. It might be worth driving out to the dock to talk to the crew about conditions and get their recommendation...

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    FWIW, I received this advice from someone in the tourist sector this afternoon: "To give you guys good idea of how everything is on the island right now. All businesses are open and masks are required in grocery stores, etc. The relatively high numbers for Bonaire are mostly young people who...

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    Reason for optimism, perhaps . . . positivity rate still high @ 56%, but active cases actually down, presumably based on recoveries exceeding new positives by a considerable amount; one death--the first in a long time--but hospitalization down to three. A tragedy for the person who succumbed...

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    Snoweman, Bonaire doesn’t care about your departure test—that’s between you, the airline, and U.S. Customs. you can get it several places (across from Eddy’s, across from the airport, maybe others)—easy.

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    Numbers today: 115/184 positive; 783 active (up 63); five hospitalized. It's reported that of the 115 new positive people, 26 are "visitors of Bonaire." It's my understanding that the "184 tested" number does not include any of the visitors who tested negative, as those results are not...

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    Sure, and surely not my intent; but is that not your understanding of what is done when one tests positive?

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    Meaning, as I understand it, full quarantine. Meals brought to the room, both of which at the expense of the person/s under quarantine.

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    50% increase in active cases since Sunday; fortunately, hospitalizations increased by just one. If the doubling time is 1-2 days (and I've read that the reporting is a couple of days behind) I'd think there are going to be a lot of people sitting in Bonaire hotel rooms for a good many days to come.

    Shark Feeding Dives...Yes or No

    We had this experience in St Croix last year. The DMs speared lionfish and left them on rocks and the blacktips circled in for them. Usually fairly solitary in our experience, there were 2-3 at a time, and never far from the divers. Different strokes, I guess, but in addition to the question...
