    For those of you there this week, what's the water temp been like?

    Casa Mexicana Breakfast Question

    Following up on my prior post, does anyone know if there are still long lines until about 7:15 (as stated in this prior post and the few after it), or if it is running faster now?

    Question Overwhelmed by choice of diving operators—any advice?

    Is that the same Aqua Safari pier that Aldora uses, or a different pier?

    I'm being referred to a different SDI training facility.

    ^^^This. Plus it should be in your book/written materials also I would think. There are also helpful videos on YouTube -- here's one that goes over every skill for PADI: I think the switch from back inflate to jacket BCD may make you more comfortable -- I prefer jacket BCDs myself. I will...

    Dive Group in/near Savannah, GA (GUE?)

    That is a hike, and it is expensive, but almost 12 hours less driving round-trip for me than Lauderdale. Have you been to Gray Reef NMS? The diving looks pretty good from what I see on the web, but would like to hear from those who have been.

    Dive Group in/near Savannah, GA (GUE?)

    Do not many people dive the Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary near there? I checked into it a while back, and seems like there was only 1 or 2 shops that went there (Latitude 31 Dive Company SCUBA Diving Charter Fishing), but it seemed that even they may not go there on a regular basis.

    Casa Mexicana Breakfast Question

    Thanks -- now that they are serving at the buffet, is there still a long line/wait to get breakfast, or is it moving fairly quickly now? Wondering if we can show up at 7 and get breakfast (and have time to eat it) before we need to leave at 7:30 to go diving.

    Are reef hooks allowed in Cozumel?

    No. Not wanting any contact with the reefs is also the stated reason why both dive knives and gloves are prohibited in the Marine Park. EDIT: You can certainly get some practice deploying a DSMB in currents in Cozumel.

    Islanders Protest Approval of 4th Cruise Ship Dock

    I think it is worth stating that the 4th pier would destroy some of the best/only shore diving on the island -- which is definitely a consideration for people (like me) considering the possibility of retiring on Cozumel, and others as well. The effect may be hard to quantify, but it should...

    Shark Feeding Dives...Yes or No

    If more divers in Jupiter is the goal, it seems to me that it would be good if more people generally understood how blue and clear the water was, and how many critters there are to see even without baiting. It's not something that is obvious to those of us outside of the area. But only after...

    Shark Feeding Dives...Yes or No

    Over time I've decided that I would generally rather not participate in feeding dives -- especially those where a scuba diver is directly (by hand, pole, etc.) feeding the sharks. I don't like the idea of sharks associating divers with being fed. When we were on a liveaboard in the Bahamas, I...

    Trip Report Trip Report: Tres Pelicanos in Decemeber

    In addition to the good info above, I'll add that once all divers are back on board it is not unusual during the surface interval for people to tell the DM that they need to jump back in the water for a minute (without gear). Then that person tries to look casual while taking care of business.

    Got my Sudafed stolen. :( Help?

    Yeah, we may or may not have thrown out a bunch of Sudafed that we had brought down (without knowing it was illegal) right before our return flight. The doctor said they do occasionally take people to jail for it in order to send a message.
