    Dive Buddy for Casino Point in Catalina this Sunday, Sept 19th?

    My husband and I are heading to Catalina this weekend to finally try our first cold-water dives. We have over 100 in warm water, but have never dove our home waters so now is the time! We have our own gear and thought about diving alone, but it would be lovely if there was a local who wanted...

    Using a "travel reward" credit card for free dive trips, resorts, liveaboards, etc...

    Does anyone happen to know what LiveAboard.com comes through as on a credit card statement? E.g. is it a cruise or other travel? If so it qualifies for extra cash back for me.

    How bad are the jellyfish/cyclones on the Great Barrier Reef in March?

    We've set up a 7 day liveaboard on Spoilsport (Coral Sea, Ribbon Reefs, Lizard Island, Bougainville Reef & Osprey Reef) for mid-March. I've read that this is both jellyfish and cyclone season. What precautions would you expect to have to take against jellyfish at this time of year? How bad are...

    Diving in Australia in March

    Hi there, We're planning the 7 day Spoilsport "Coral Sea Safari" that goes to Cod Hole, Lizard Island, Ribbon Reefs, Osprey Reef & Bougainville Reef. We have 60+ dives over the past 12 years or so, but it will be our first live-aboard so I hope a 7 day trip isn't too ambitious. I've also...

    Any Cyber Monday Deals?

    I was thinking of buying a computer with a transmitter function, but perhaps not buying the transmitter itself yet. We need a dive computer so why not buy one that we can upgrade later? The only thing we lose without the transmitter is info on the air left, right?

    Here's an even better deal on that GoPro ($349.95) as there are no tax or shipping charges and you get a couple diving accessories: Buy scuba equipment and dive gear from Scubatoys.com - GoPro Bunle Just picked it up myself! :)

    Any Cyber Monday Deals?

    I don't have my own gear right now, but like the idea of buying a watch that can be used with with my own gear eventually. Two questions: 1) Would it be easy to insert the transmitter into gear I'm renting from a dive shop? 2) Could I use the dive computer without the transmitter?

    Wow, sounds amazing Fred!! I'm so sad to say my husband wasn't able to get off work so our perfectly planned trip was scrapped and I'm headed to Oahu to spend some time with a friend. We're diving with the highly recommended (on Scubaboard & elsewhere) Kaimana Divers (Scuba Diving Oahu with...

    Diving in Belize in early July?

    Yep, it's looking like we'll be doing Turneffe Island Resort with the 20% off from July 12 (full moon!) - July 19th. I kinda wanted to do Turneffe Flats or Blackbird as they always do 3 dives a day and there are a couple of days TIR only does two, but they didn't have the right availability...

    Diving in Belize in early July?

    We are thinking a week. After doing some research I think we'll probably focus on diving and not worry too much about the mainland jungle/ruins stuff. After doing some research I'm considering these places: - Glover's Atoll Resort, Belize - Isla Marisol Resort Belize - Seven In Heaven |...

I'm looking at the weather forecasts and there are lots of thunderstorms forecast for the next couple weeks. Is this just normal July weather in Belize or...
