    Sudafed in Roatan?

    I did a search here as well as Google and can't find out if Sudafed is allowed to be brought into Roatan? Honduran jail does not sound like much fun, but sudafed works best for my allergies. Anyone know? Thanks, Jay

    Favorite wreck in Southern Lake Michigan?

    Looks like I'm going to put together another trip to Lake Michigan for a group of old, fat, smelly, and grumpy, but experienced, divers from OK. One of the group would like to dive one of the mostly intact clipper ships if possible. We can dive out of Hammond, Chicago, or Milwaukee...

    Trip Report Sunscape Curacao, Ocean Encounters Diving A++++++

    Wow, it actually sucks to be home and I have never said that after ANY vacation...ever. I go into any vacation somewhat jaded because we love Cozumel. We love everything about Cozumel, so even after a few days of being somewhere else, I always say, "It's nice...but it's not Cozumel" Spoiler...

I've read the posts here and the we will be doing the river, the snorkel with Manatees...

    CUBA-TRIP REPORT- Havana and Veradero August/September 2019

    This may turn into a longer than usual report because the trip was nothing like anything we had done before. It was not the typical dive vacation I had hoped for, bur more of a Cuban vacation with some diving thrown in. This was our first trip to Cuba so I'm no expert. Also, I don't care about...

    What happens to a submarine sunk by depth charges?

    This is hardly underwater treasure but maybe I can find some information about a US submarine lost in WWII off of the Northeast coast of Japan. I have a case that has taken a more personal impact than most. The case details are not important for this post, but it involves a WWII veteran whose...

    Deep 6 Wetsuit Review

    I had been looking at the 3mm wetsuit for a while. My 5 year old $89 Neosport 3mm with a glued on pocket had seen its better days and even with lots of flushing while diving smelled like a biohazard worthy of a lifetime supply of Odoban. When Deep 6 put their 3mm on special for $299 with a...
