Darn, I was getting my double hose regulator out and then watch out for someone to come cut it with their knife
That fighting technique seemed OK until I learned about diving. The way they showed it it was just a way to end the fight and force the diver to surface, but now that I know about DCS and pulmonary embolism, it doesn't appear to be quite as humane.

My wife and I just got back from a week stay at Allegro. The resort had maybe 10% occupancy so you could easily find pool deck chairs. The room was clean, but a bit dated. Found out they were pretty much closed from 4/1 to 11/1. They had several crews around all week fixing all kinds of damage from the storms that hit the island. The food was pretty decent. Most meals were buffet only due to the low number of guests. About mid-week they finally opened the Premium lounge that we got to use with the UDE package. We got a deal for the UDE package for the week thru Liquid Diving Adventures for $630 pp that included 6 tanks with Pro Dive. Due to the weather last week with the port being closed we only got to use 3 of those tanks. We got 5 dives in total due to the weather. ProDive staff did a good job. They use the big cattle boats but it was usually only about a 15-20 min ride to the dive sites we did. We normally dive in Belize off Ambergris Caye. So the current in Cozumel took a bit to get use to while diving. Not sure how anyone can get good pictures there.

Thanks for the info. Great to know! I just got back from PDC at Blue Bay yesterday also. I ended up booking last minute the thursday before and no direct CZM flight was available. The ferry and the port were close most of last week and the current was too strong even on the PDC side. I am 80% sure I will go back to CZM during xmas and end up with a few dives in the cenotes to wash my gears.:)
