    Trip Report Trip Report - Turks & Caicos Explorer II July 17-24, 2021

    I did this trip January 2020. Our last day was cut to one early morning dive as well. The Captain said he needed to get into the harbour early due to the tides. I wonder how often this happens. We were able to make it to French Cay. The night dive there was probably the best dive with reef...

    Do experienced divers need to carry less weight?

    I am not as bouyant as I look. I was certified on a whim after a dicovery dive in Roatan. It took me a while to get my weighting right since I started off quite higher than I need to be. Last year I found a weight pocket burried in the mud durring a dive. I pulled it out, shot some air in my...

    Day 12 - Columbia Deep and Caracalillo

    Funny it is not common to see sharks other than nurse sharks in Cozumel. I have seen reef sharks a few times times but, a quitar fish once but that is about it. I am always on the wrong site when a hammerhead is sighted.

    Trip Report Why I Won't Be Returning to Cozumel-Part 1,2&3

    In South Tx during highschool during 2 a -days they would not have water for us, they would give us crushed ice and we would need to suck on it, so we would not drink too fast. We also had a salt tablet dispensor by the water fountain in the locker room. I worked for the highway department as...

    Ambergris Caye fatality - Belize

    I was impressed how the captain and crew were able to handle the conditions. Everyone had to remove their BCD and they got each diver on the boat one at a time. The reason I commented was to express that conditions are not always that same.

    backplate and wing weight systems

    I have a couple set of the Hollis weight systems that I took of some gear I bought to resale. In my opinion if you are using these with a BPW you might as well just be using a regular BCD, they are kind of bulky. How much total weight are you using now? You could always distribute your weight...

    Cozumel reef health

    If there was not a reason or demand to have a marine park I wonder what it would be like. The few times I have had a chance to dive outside of the marine park, where fishing is permitted, I really noticed the lack of marine life.

    New (and yet kinda old) guy from Texas

    Scuba Ranch in Terrell. It is not the Carribean but I really enjoyed diving there this Summer, I probably had 70 dives there over the Summer. Many of the dive shops use it to certify students. There are quit a few people that will camp out over the weekends. It is a good place to work on your...

    I talked to a family today from Mexico City that had flown into DFW to get vaccinated. Someone else had told me they had talked to Mexican's that had come for the vaccine as well. I didn't get into the details of how they were able to get here but they told me they drove to Gainsville to get...
