    St Thomas diving

    I've dove with Admiralty and Red Hook, both were good experiences. When I dove with Admiralty we actually loaded the dive boat at the Marina and then motored over the the Marriott to met the other divers at the Marriott pier. I don't think it could get more convenient than that.

    Dive Ops near Marriott? Rent a Car?

    We stayed at the Marriott Beach Resort on 7 mile a couple of years ago. Red Sail Sports had a small shop there. I f think their bigger shop was located at another hotel. I was happy with their operation and would use them again.

    Lost weight belt during rescue class at Millbrook

    Do you have any better idea where it went in relative to the boat? I'll be out that way tomorrow teaching and will take a look. Belts do tend to dig deep into the slit though.

    Fins Found at Millbrook 8-16-09

    Ted, you really need a life. Hanging out on the Winnebago all day Saturday on your doubles isn't healthy. At least you should have gone over to the speedboat for a change of scenario.

    Suggestions for Dive Op please!

    Red Sail Sports is the dive shop at the Marriott. I dove with them three years ago and found them to be professional with excellent rental equipment, dm's, and boats. They kept the size of the diving group small and didn't combine cruise divers with people staying on the island. Just another...
