    New fin recommendations?

    I decided to get the Mares Avanti Quattro Pros. They're neutrally buoyant - and actually about a half inch longer than my Novas. I put them in the tub and they did not float. My Novas floated - when I added the 5mil boots they really floated. I don't want to change too much in one shot, so if I...

    OMG - the toadfish pic is stellar!!! Thanks for the update - headed there in a little over 2 weeks. Where did you see the blacktips?

    Current water temp?

    I have found this website to be consistently within a degree of what my dive computer has shown over the past three years, in different seasons. It currently says 85.3, and @Maxwell@3 shows 86 - so that's pretty darned close!

    Cozumel what to expect now

    I've got pictures of it stored all over the place, but only one original and no email or other back up. As far as I know, Missouri doesn't offer such a thing. But maybe the hospital system where I got it has it. Roger was able to get record of his shot from Walmart though. Hmmm. EDIT: I went...

    Cozumel what to expect now

    From what I understand, that's what they were doing in Hawaii for a while.

    Cozumel what to expect now

    "Starting Nov. 8, unvaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents will need to take a test one day before departure and test again upon arrival in the U.S. Entry requirements will not change for vaccinated Americans. They will still need to show proof of a negative coronavirus test taken no...

    Cozumel what to expect now

    When we completed the VeriFly app for American it asked if we had a printed copy of our results. We couldn't complete the app without saying "yes", but nobody ever asked for that printed copy. That was in July. We did go back to the International Hospital the next day for a printed copy, just in...

    Cozumel what to expect now

    The fact is we won't know what this means until a .gov website explains it, and makes it as crystal clear as any .gov website can! I don't trust the media to get it correct the first time. The link the Reuters article references is to Kevin Munoz' tweet that says both international air and land...

    Cozumel what to expect now

    That remains a question until we can find the info on a .gov website for clarification. Mexicans and Canadians will be able to travel here with just a vaccination and no test ... but not so sure about us icky Muricans.

    Cozumel what to expect now

    I don't mind the test - been to Cozumel a few times this year - last test was at the International Hospital (where they are QUITE thorough!). But if it's not required I won't get a test. If I'm symptomatic - at home or in Cozumel - I will get a test. Otherwise, no.

    Cozumel what to expect now

    Waiting for a document to show up on a .gov website to confirm this, but FYI. Within this article it says the following has changed: "All foreign visitors must be vaccinated against COVID-19, and must show proof of vaccination before boarding a U.S.-bound airline. They must also provide a...

    To go or no? (covid)

    @Christi, it's been a while since this has been discussed and I'm wondering what locals are saying? I saw something yesterday (can't remember where) that indicated Cozumel might be in the 'green' again. But I trust what locals say more. If you have anything to share I'd love to hear it. We're...

    Cozumel what to expect now

    Is there a place to find the dive site rotation schedule for what's closed for what dates? I understand they're rotating - and it won't make much of a difference as we're already booked - but I'm curious. Thanks!

    New fin recommendations?

    Because I'm short (5' 1") I've always had my tank low so my head doesn't bump into the first stage. My top cam band is generally as high as it can get without slipping off. Sometimes it's a close call, making my buddy uncomfortable, but if it rides higher my head bumps.

    And there is that, too!!

    New fin recommendations?

    Yes, my knees are bent. If I tuck myself into a ball I end up upside down! (I've been experimenting with this for a while.)

    New fin recommendations?

    I guess I'm not doing a good job of explaining my issue. I am staying horizontal, but my fins float a bit higher than my body and if I try to compensate and bring them down, my body shifts and my head comes up. If all I needed to do was stay horizontal I'd be fine. I'd like to be able to be...

    New fin recommendations?

    While diving a Zena the weight pouches are at or slightly below my natural waistline (and doesn't shift with a crotch strap), so adding weight onto a belt wouldn't change anything. But thanks for the idea.

    New fin recommendations?

    I don't necessarily want to be vertical (like all the cool kids), but when horizontal on a safety stop my fin tips end up above my head and I begin to ascend, so I end up swimming down again.

    New fin recommendations?

    They're super heavy - not great for travel, and my feet felt way too heavy when I wore them before. Even with my 5mil floaty boots in them, they sink like a rock.
