    A700 Second Stage 'Clicking'

    I see the same thing every day. Occassionally I'll get a well worn set that comes in reasonably clean, but not often. Had a customer come in the other day with MK25/S600 combo. LP inflator hose was virtually stuck to the power inflator, corrosion on every connection, and green filter. He was...

    Some divers don't like river and lake dives

    Like most, I prefer the beautiful scenery found in the blue water; however, it would be very difficult for me to dive as often as I do if it weren't for jumping in my local lakes and rivers. I love to dive and will find things to enjoy about almost any location.

    I purchased my crewpak and began studying about three months before beginning the classes. Work your way through the DM manual and Encyclopedia. The biggest portions to study are the Physiology and Physics. Also take some time reading through the Instructor Manual to get a feel for where each...

    Favorite LDS?

    Who is your favorite LDS(s) and what is it you like about them? My "Local" DSs are in San Antonio and after the experiences I've had with each I choose to take my business to the furthest from me, which is Duggan Diving. I think their prices are fair and the people are friendly. John, the...

    hydro testing

    I took my tanks to Duggan Diving who charged me $30 (each) which included the Hydro, VIP (w/ visual eddy), and air fill. Not a bad price in my opinion.

    Eagle Ray Divers, Cozumel......Review

    LSU, Unfortunately my wife had a similar negative experience while doing a Discover Scuba with them. My dives went fine, but Antonio took her on her first dive over 50' of water. She had never worn scuba equipment and was nervous to begin with. I won't go into detail, but he was less than...

    Typical cost of DM course

    Thank you for all the feedback. It sounds like the ballpark in this area will range $400-600. Thank you for explaining the Pre-Application, it makes sense. A lawsuit happens and regulations are put in place to "fix" the problem, gotta love government.

    Typical cost of DM course

    I am considering beginning the PADI Divemaster course. From the research I've done already, I've found only a few LDS which post their prices for the course. Of the ones I've seen, it sounds as if $600 is an average price range for the course. 1. Is this a fairly standard cost for the this...
