    I think we found the best shore dive in Coz

    Sorry for not telling you all about this earlier, cuz it seems either a secret (most resorts and shops know about this place, but won't make money telling people about it), or maybe folks just don't know about it (or both). Anyway, my wife and I have shore dived plenty in Coz, just not in...

    Need snorkel buddy (female) for "Point of Rocks"

    HI all, My wife and I visited her sister Karen in Clearwater a month or so ago, and we went to Point of Rocks off of Crescent Beach in Siesta Key, and had a blast. It was pretty much the best shore snorkeling we have found in the Tampa area (although Siesta Key is quite a bit south of St...

    Dreams influenced by SCUBA

    Anyone else here see significant differences in their dreams after being certified? One major aspect that I love, is hovering over land, then I inhale and I float above the treetops. After several of these dreams, I realized that this floating ability in my dreams was a result of my brain...

    Can you dive @ Point of Rocks?

    Hi all, My wife and I will be visiting her sister in Tampa, end of May, and I want to find some more dive options than last time I went (went out with Tanks-a-lot, and had a great dive, and dived the Regina from Sea Trek divers front shore @ Anna Maria Island). From my research, and here on...

    Beam shot comparison photos

    I've seen quite a few misleading photos of light beams on this sub forum that are meant to show the advantage of one light over another (or whatever the purpose), and if the photos are separately photographed, it proves nothing due to the auto-irising of most cameras to regulate the exposure...

    "The Perfect Dive"

    I posted a thread about big tank availability in the Bonaire forum and some friendly banter about the physical "work" involved in shore diving vs boat diving got me dreaming a little about the easiest diving imagineable, so I thought y'all might want to fantasize a bit with the premise: "The...

    Big tank availability in Bonaire?

    Of all the resorts in Bonaire (leaning toward Buddy's or GRI), do some offer tanks like 100's to 120's? Please don't lecture me on air consumption - done all the tricks - I just have big lungs, and like to really get around UW rather than float fifteen feet above everyone else doing nothing...

    Which editing software for 1200HD?

    Ok, you have to admit that the Arcsoft MediaImpression that came with my 1200HD is horribly inadequate, but what do I expect for free - can't complain, except that it wasted a lot of my time - doesn't create HD videos, not even simple text overlays, but it does allow stupid YouTube uploading...

    I've been struggling to find the best diffuser for my 24 watt HID, because I lost the frosted diffuser (matte finished lexan film) it came with, and my homemade diffusers (suede textured lexan film, and heavy textured flurescent light fixture diffuser) all seem to wet-out under water, still...

    Spotted Eagle Ray that actually changes colors!

    I have a contract to make a mobile of tropical fish for Children's Hospital in Honolulu from the color-changing material that I manufacture, and realized that rays are perfect subjects for thermoforming (acrylic), then my wife suggested I put spots on them (one of my product line patterns called...

    Fresh fish markets near Kihei, Maui?

    I've been planning my trip in May, and would love to avoid the expensive restaraunts to some degree, and grill right at our condo on Keawapaku beach (Hale Hui Kai), so I was kicking around my fish dinner options. Easiest option, is to see if there are any fish markets near Kihei? Another...
