    Return to Cozumel after 6 year absence

    Most of the DM's know how to spot them from the surface. But, it's a little scary to swim away from the wall and over the deep to escape one. Never been my experience, but I'm aware of how to do it. Swimming around sand tornadoes is a little weird though.

    The Biology of the Lionfish Invasion

    There's a great video of a Bobbitt worm taking a lion fish in the blink of an eye. I think that's where the idea for the movie "Tremors' came from.

    Wondering where your stuff from overseas is? Shipaggedon!

    Till when?? (I called FedEx to complain today. It was delivered at the end of the day.)

    Wondering where your stuff from overseas is? Shipaggedon!

    Overseas isn't the only shipping problem. FedEx was supposed to deliver a wheel to me from NJ last Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and yesterday. It's still not delivered.

    Recommendations for Nautilus/lifeline?

    I have the original Nautilus. Fortunately, I have never had to use it. I bought a nylon dive belt to keep it strapped around my chest. The main thing is making sure it's charged before each use.

    Has anyone taken an Apple Watch to depth?

    Mine, with all that jazz, is only rated to 100 meters.

    Has anyone taken an Apple Watch to depth?

    I hope you don't have a pin break on your band. That would be an expensive loss.

    dive shop recommendation

    The next time I go, I will dive with Julio Kin. I have dived with him when he would sub himself to Tres Pelicanos. Great dive master, and fun guy to be around.

    Diving watches

    I have two Rolexes, neither is a dive watch. Unless I had hundreds of millions of dollars, I would feel like crap if I lost a Rolex on a dive. My current dive watch is a Luminox. It keeps better time than an automatic watch, as any quartz watch would.

    Thanks. I'm really looking at an airbnb house.

    St. Croix dive op

    I'm looking to go to St. Croix in October. I haven't chosen a place to stay, yet. I did notice that a couple of dive ops include rental gear in their price. I only need tanks and weights. I prefer mainly boat dives, but want to do a couple of dives (at least) at the pier. What shop is the best...

    Casa Mexicana Breakfast Question

    Try and get a south facing room on the top floor without an adjoining room. But, by all means, stay at Casa Mexicana. It's top notch.

    Where to go????

    Curacao is now on a Do Not Travel list with the CDC. I would love to go there as it has more boat diving options and has more to do for the non-diving wife. Sadly, Delta doesn't offer flights to CUR.
