    Places with minimal current

    Nor did I. My point is that saying “don’t swim into the current” is a gross oversimplification. It also pretty much implies someone doesn’t have the common sense to figure that out, which is just kind of rude.

    Places with minimal current

    If it’s totally up to the diver, yeah maybe just don’t swim against a current. And a slow drift might mean less swimming. But it’s not always that simple. Even if you are with an op that always does drift dives as you describe and executes perfectly, any kind of drift may require maneuvering...

    Expanding ScubaBoard to social media

    If “making it easier” means there’s a checkbox that says “share to facebook” or wherever and it’s someones choice, that’s one thing. Doing it for someone (whatever the TOS might say) is a very different thing.

    Hamanasi Resort to Turneffe

    I think it’s simple, just not direct. Assuming you are thinking of spending a week at each or something like that - you will simply return to Belize City between the stays. Drive or shuttle to Hamanasi from there. And take advantage of a resorts boat transfers to Turneffe (typically only...

    Places with minimal current

    Is the problem swimming against a current (something I’d prefer to avoid myself if there’s not a good reason), or any current at all even when going with it? What about mild drifts where they pick you up at the end? If current is a concern, I would not even consider going to the Maldives. You...

    Punta Sur/Devil's Throat

    The fact that some people don’t know what they are doing is not necessarily a reason to reduce everything to the lowest common denominator.

    Trip Report Dive trip from Dreams Resort, Curacao June 20-27th, 2021

    Sandals is at the other end of the island though. This is by Dreams and the Marriott and looks like another real thing. They seems to be lots of re/building going on there.

    Trip Report Dive trip from Dreams Resort, Curacao June 20-27th, 2021

    Sounds more like the place mentioned in this recent article - New Resort Management Deal for Zoetry Curacao Resort & Spa Maybe theres been some resort management churn. Looks like Zoetry and Secrets (and Dreams) are under the same umbrella -...

    Roatan & La Ceiba airports

    Just saw an article in Cayman news that La Ceiba airport was just downgraded and Cayman Air can’t fly their 737-8s there. It said Roatan was also recently downgraded temporarily until 12/7. Cayman Air is replacing with Saab flights. Any idea if this somehow only affecting Cayman Air, or other...

    Expanding ScubaBoard to social media

    I use facebook quite a bit, but very little for diving. There is a local dive group or 2 I might catch posts on, but the content is not really that useful to me since I don’t actually dive locally anymore and any travel discussions are of limited use. The rest of the platforms not so much. If...

    Beaches to open on St Vincent

    I was curious what was going on with the volcano and Beaches St Vincent and hunted around. Only thing I can find was a June 2021ish quote from a non official facebook page someone created- “We've got boots on the ground in Curacao for our Sandals resort there, slated to open in 2022, and in St...

    Backup regulators on dive trips?

    I have an extra reg setup that could be used as is or to steal parts. But I fly to dive and as luggage restrictions got tougher I got away from bringing it. I might if going someplace I thought getting a rental or loan would be a problem but that rarely happens.

    I have the same problem on iPhone 8 for a few days at least. Working around it by turning phone sideways. Ok on my larger android tablet. Seems to be struggling when it has limited screen real estate.

    Travel to Indonesia

    I imagine the idea was to trust a government info website over other things on the web? Neither necessarily "printed."

    Land-Based Palau or N. Red Sea LoB?

    Just to play devils advocate - while I myself would do LOB in Palau (have twice), I’ve seen comments from a decent number of folks who like the land based option and enjoy the pretty boat rides.
