    Suggestions to kill 2 days in Grand Cayman?

    Thanks all - I just booked Sunshine - it is cheaper if you book directly on their website instead of through Expedia/Travelocity (I saved $44 for two nights by direct booking). Also I got a mid sized car from Avis for $84 with all taxes etc. for the 2 days. Not that bad considering a taxi from...

    Suggestions to kill 2 days in Grand Cayman?

    I am going to Little Cayman for 7 days, then will be spending two days on Grand Cayman before returning home. That means one day of diving and one day of land/snorkeling activities. Any suggestions on the best places to kill a day or two? And, does anyone have any ideas on where to stay that...

    In Seattle area 9/29 and 9/30 - where should I go?

    I am an intermediate diver and am looking for recommendations on some good dive sites. I am not looking for a super long swim or fighting strong currents - just an easy dive with some interesting things to see. Can anyone suggest somewhere nice? Thanks

    Mares Interface for Puck

    One more thing you need to download the DRAK.150.patch.A430.zip file, then copy the ScubaLinker.dll over the original file (in c:\program files\mares\Drak) or all of your data looks wrong. And, you have to change the Settings->metrics to Imperial unless you like meters instead of feet. Now the...

    Mares Interface for Puck

    Windows XP mode to the rescue! I also had Win7 x64 issues and tried every driver I could find with no success. So I started XP mode, attached the cable to the usb and Puck, then in XP mode go to the USB tab and attach the device CP2102 USB to UART bridge. XP detects the new device - I told it...

    Wisdom 1 & Windows 7 'USB Interface Not Found'

    In case anyone else runs into this problem, when you install the 64-bit driver in Windows 7 do NOT have the cable plugged in to the PC/computer in any way. Just having the cable plugged into the USB port prevented the driver install from working. Just unplug, install the driver, and then...

    Bonaire - Christmas and New-years Eve dining recommendations

    Thanks all - Buddy's on New years may work well. As for leaving the next morning, I no longer have a way off the island since DAE stopped operating from Bonaire! Looks like I have a more pressing concern than nursing a hangover that day...

    Bonaire - Christmas and New-years Eve dining recommendations

    The family and I will be in Bonaire for the whole week starting Christmas day and returning home on New Years day. I am guessing that some places will be closed on Christmas day so I am looking for recommendations for a nice meal for the fam. Since New Years Eve is our last night on the...

    Delete Dives from logbook on Mares Puck

    So I dove this weekend and used my new computer. After the 1st dive, I took the computer off to pull down my wet suit and dry off. Later I put the computer back on and noticed that the buckle "tab" was missing. The steel rod on the band had worked itself loose somehow and the tounge was gone...

    Delete Dives from logbook on Mares Puck

    The Puck manual says it holds 50 dives, but I get your point - I just have to dive more until this becomes a non-issue. Living in Chicago does not help hurry this along... I am coming down to the Keys in a few weeks so that will help.

    Delete Dives from logbook on Mares Puck

    I just purchased a new Puck and it came with two dives already in the log book. I was told by the retailer (ScubaToys) that this was normal and just the checkout dives. Is this true? If so, how do I get rid of those dives from the logbook? Thr 1st dive shows 11' for 0 minutes, the second...

    Maui on New Year's Eve

    Thanks to all that replied to this thread. We are back in Chicago again, already missing the diving and snorkeling on Maui. KrisB, thanks for the airport beach recommendation - you were correct that it was a much better area than the south shores at the time we went. Ulua beach was good, but...

    Maui on New Year's Eve

    Just a few hours left before we get on the plane. It is raining so hard that for the first time ever, my house is leaking in a little water. I see that Honolulu lost power so I guess the weather in paradise is not always prefect either, but certainly better than here. When I get to Maui I...

    Maui on New Year's Eve

    The family and I are heading to Maui from snowy Chicago this week. The wind chill a week ago was -49F and actual temps were -9F. It warmed up a bit and dumped 20" of snow on us, followed by an ice storm last night. Tomorrow the forcast calls for 4-5inches of rain and flash flooding - I need...
