    Cozumel Trip Report 1/28-2/4

    It took me almost four years before making my second trip to Cozumel. Boy, why did I wait so long. I stayed at Meson San Miguel as I was traveling solo. Rooms were simple and clean but suited me fine. As it was right at the square and the first several days of my trip coincided with carnaval, it...

    Chichen Itza from Coz

    I was just wondering which one is better. Book a Chichen Itza tour from here in the US or do it when I get to Cozumel? I was thinking a driving there myself but I've heard that it's a long drive and I don't really feel comfortable driving in the dark in a place I'm not familiar with. Thanks for...

    Finally going back after almost 4 years

    Reading some of the most recent posts here kinda made me realize that I haven't been back to Coz for almost 4 years. So, used some miles to fly to Cancun. Now, is it too much to ask for some tips on getting from Cancun to Coz? Never done that route before. Anyone else going to be there on...

    GBR in May?

    The family is thinking of taking a trip to visit relatives in Sydney this coming May (about 70% sure but something may come up). So, I just couldn't visit Australia without diving the GBR. I'll probably have 5 days to do diving (maybe a week at most if I can get away from the relatives). What...

    Airline Choice

    Just wondering. If you have a choice would you fly china airlines, cathay, or Korean Air? Never flew on either one. These are the cheapest from SFO.

    Photo developing dillema

    Need help. This is for a topside photo problem I have (but could easily apply to UW photo). I wanted to have this photo developed into an 8x10 size.... This is an uncropped image from a d70s. My problem is that I couldn't get the whole image if I wanted it developed. If I wanted the moon...

    ? for the HK based PPDers

    Just browsing through the cebu pacific air website and saw that airfare from MNL to HK is only 40$ one way. Wow! Now, I'm interested in making a side trip to HK. I've always wanted to go there, maybe for a week. When is chinese new year and is it feasible to go to HK at that time? Expensive? Is...

    Finally! I got my nitrox cert. Wasn't that hard really and I don't know why I waited so long. Now, I can't wait to dive on a PO2 of 1.9 at 165 feet :D just kidding. I'll keep it at 1.4

    Pre-Easter Monterey Dive

    Went for a pre-Easter dive in Monterey with Ben_ca today. This was only my second dive trip to Monterey and was looking forward to it as I was testing out a long hose set-up. Arrived about 0800 at the Breakwater in Monterey and was surprised to find a lot of empty parking spots. The water was...

    Bezel for sk7

    Just recently moved (again) and was going to hook up my sk7 to a dss boot but can't find the bezel. Don't know what I did and I've turned my apt upside down and still can't find it. Went to a dive shop today but their comp was down so can't find out whether I can order just the bezel. Anyone...

    March PI Trip

    Some pics from my recent trip to the PI. Didn't take too many pics and wasn't too happy with how they came out. My buoyancy/trim during this trip was so bad that I didn't take the cam underwater until I figured out what was wrong.

    Thanks, y'all

    Back in the US and miss the PI already. It's cooooold here and there's snow on the ground when I got to minneapolis. Thanks for the shirts and the rhum (I promise I'll put to good use :D ). It was great to finally meet the PPDers (local and foreign) and can't wait to come back in December.

    Pic out of focus with WAL

    I need help. I've been practicing using the WAL with the Ikelite housing for the a620. I don't have a picture right now but will hope to have one posted soon. I use center focus on the camera using manual settings. My problem is that the outer 1/6 of the pic on each side are out of focus but 2/3...
