    Tropical Storm Grace

    Boats at the southern marina look fine. Jorge (Cubano) posted some photos on Facebook showing his & one of ScubaTony's . Both were Blue XT Sea boats a few months ago.

    Punta Sur/Devil's Throat

    That's a "conditions need to be good" dive & it requires a boat load of skilled divers, not 1 or 2 of a boat load. It's (Devil's Throat) not a very good dive for the price paid for 1 dive on a 2 tank trip. That of course is my opinion based on having done it to please others on the boat.

    What thickness wetsuit for Coz in January?

    That temp info is pretty close to what you'll get. That may be a clue to use on what makes you go swimming in a pool or lake in NY. I'm not that much further north than you & my pool rarely gets warmer than the waters of Cozumel so I just use my Canadian Skin as a wetsuit. You on the otherhand...

    The divemaster Pedro Pablo is now diving with Blue Project

    My point is that you can't buy skill. No matter how big the box skill isn't inside it.

    The divemaster Pedro Pablo is now diving with Blue Project

    He's one of the best. I guess retirement wasn't for him and I'm not surprised by that.

    Looking to take an Underwater Photo Class

    I've been a member here for several years & the only thing I've seen over the years was a once or maybe twice a year week course / seminar offered at Scuba Club. I can't say I've seen it mentioned in a while.

    Lost my camera on Paradise!

    I took the time to look up the life expectancy of images on memory cards or Jump drives. Seems like 10 years or so is what the internet seems is for those left alone but IF you copy them to another device, format the card or jump drive, then put them back on you may get another 10 years of safe...

    Lost my camera on Paradise!

    We all use our cameras differently & some try to use 1 card only while others own lots of cards. I happen to have lots but after an event or trip I usually re format them on my computer once all the back ups are done. 4 of my cameras (all considered old & mostly obsolete because of newer models)...

    Lost my camera on Paradise!

    Maybe you got that wrong but A very long time ago I attended a 2 day seminar put on by Olympus when digital was relatively new. The recommendation to format often or after every download "had' a real purpose back then but it far less important now. Memory cards were small but expensive & we...

    Wyndham as a Dive Operator?

    Thanks re enjoying the photo tour & as crazy as it seems my regular room is 1234 which has 2 Queen sized beds & a pretty nice pool view. That said if it were up to me now I'd ask for rooms in the east wing, specifically numbers 1256, 1257 or 1260 which have a better view now that some trees have...

    Wyndham as a Dive Operator?

    Dive Paradise operates there & has a few other locations too. Several big boats & some fast boats too but they don't have shade. They cater to all levels of divers & there's usually several boat loads of divers each morning when I stay at Hotel Cozumel, which is in Feb. As for the hotel I've...

    Lost my camera on Paradise!

    oddly enough I remembered seeing those photos BUT added a link there ONLY for someone to point out your thread. Anyway too big an effort to get it back is not a bad thing. Re clearing my cards I don't do that until I'm home & the photos are on at least 2 hard drives. I have LOTS & LOTS of cards...

    Lost my camera on Paradise!

    I've poster this several times & it's still the best thing I know of. Besides having a sticker inside my housing my memory card gets labelled (create a volume label) by my computer as my Email address. Pop that card into a card reader & it comes up as a drive letter & with my email. I also...

    Lost my camera on Paradise!

    If you use Facebook there is a group called Cozumel for Divers which seems active with a few camera finds. It's a private group you need to join to use it. I am watching it though & can pass info along.

    Thank you for 19 years!!!!

    Nobody could have predicted where Covid would be taking us. Large & small businesses including famous ones are closing or have already closed here in Canada & right now we're in more trouble than ever before with the spread of Covid. To go back to the beginning I heard on the local news to stock...
