    So, the rumor is that you shouldn't eat, drink, or smoke within 3 hours before taking the test or you might come back with a false negative, even if you are infected. This is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as a possible solution to potential travel buggery.

    Thank you! I did receive a PDF with some info, but I'm guessing more will be forthcoming. I'll definitely re-read what was sent. I always arrive with a good attitude....just happy to be able to travel and dive right now and be in the company of others.

    Yes. We were told that in Mexico before testing for our return to the US last month. We weren't told why, but were were told not to eat for 4 hours and not to drink alcohol for 8 hours before the test. Funny though...some people we became friendly with at the resort (which arranged on-site testing) were told not to eat for 8 hours or drink for 12 hours. No mention of smoking, but we don't smoke.

    Perfect! You might want to log in to your account and go into your GIS or just click on the Know Before You Go. There are also some new local instructions with Covid procedures.

    You're going to have a great time! Jerome is your captain for the trip?

    I found the covid instructions. Easy! I'm going to see if I can get the vaccine soon as it's moving fairly quickly here in Oklahoma, but testing is easy enough.

    I'm not sure who the captain is. I'll need to dig a bit deeper for information.

    Jerome was captaining the BA III when we were there three weeks ago.

    Yes, I know Jerome. He took over for Chris when he went to the Kona Aggressor. Jermone, Ferman and the crew are top notch. I think you said you were going on the IV (Sun Dancer). I think Dennis will be the captain for that boat. If so, you will be quite happy. He is a great guy and really knows Light House Atoll.

    Yes. We're on the Aggressor IV (Sun Dancer). Getting excited for this trip...sounds like we'll have a great crew!

    No to both.

    My pro tip: take your mask easily accessible and claim your spot on the dive deck 1st thing by hanging it on the tank valve you want.

    I usually pick a spot where I will be out of the wind bc I get cold when I get back from a dive. Plus I don't want to sit where the wetsuits are hanging and people reaching over you to access them.

    If you're a real cold-phobe (like I am), the forward-most position on the port side has warm air from the compressors blowing down on you...
