    Nice, I saw someone was staying at Denlaman, our normal place Captain Don's was booked so we are going down sunday the 30th coming back the next Saturday - don't ask the wife cant handle 7 days. 6 is okay. I was going to hook up with WWguy last year but forgot all my computer stuff and chased a wife and kid around. They are good now, would love to hook up with some folks from the board.

    Sure. I invited you to the private conversation, where we've given our contact details. Probably best to discuss specifics there as well.

    Homerdoc, I’m staying at Den Laman 12/29 - 1/5. Have some dives scheduled with gajahduduk, in touch with darook. Definitely happy to dive with you. I’m chasing macro photo opportunities mostly. I’ll stand you ideas via PM. Looking for an evening buddy at Salt Pier. (Bruce, will Also reconnect with you.)

    My wife and I start our journey today. We are getting out of MSP a day early due to an inbound snow storm and didn't want to take any chances. Will be cooling our heels in ATL for two nights then down to the island on Friday. It's getting close now!

    A wise move, and one which will make the warm air and water feel that much sweeter.

    I’ll PM you and the group on my/our schedule so far. I’m particularly interested in joining you and your wife for a Salt Pier afternoon or evening dive.

    Look forward to meeting!

    Happy New Years Eve everyone. Not even 8:00pm on Bonaire and I need toothpicks to keep my eyes open! Did the East Coast diving this morning and then wifey and I did Weber's Joy this afternoon. All three great dives. The number of turtles on the east side is insane. We did Funchi's Reef and then Turtle City. Had to have seen 40-50 turtles each dive, often with 3-4 in view at any time. We had a special treat on dive two at Turtle city when a pod of 8-9 Bottlenose dolphin went right by us. I have never seen that and the DMs said it is like a once per year sighting. Currents were really running and we shot through both Turtle City and Fingers in 45 minutes. Fingers has easily the prettiest hard corals I have seen here. Current was running strong at Weber's Joy too this afternoon. That is one really nice dive!

    I'll restart this thread with an eye towards the end of 2019. My wife and I arrive on December 21st and fly out the 28th. Anyone planning trips for then and want to meet up for dives and/or social activities?
