    Did you invest in more scuba gear? 10 tanks and 4 rigs sound little. What about O2? Is it available in Tonga and carried onboard?

    LMAO..People actually do this?
    I could maybe understand working in exchange for food, room and board, but why would anyone pay to work for someone else?....that's some racket you have going there, I must admit, I'm a bit jealous...:)

    Love the comments....I have not been on SB for some time, having too much fun! in Tonga...LOL?? Our 2013 crew in their words had the best time of their lives...living the life living and diving from their own uninhabited tropical island , hunting wrecks, surveying sites, swimming with whales,etc...NOT what you would call working.....it surely is not for everyone, but if you are up for an adventure in an amazing place, that is NOT a packaged dive holiday..this is different...don't worry, if we find anything the Govt. get plenty and the locals get plenty and we get a bit, so our crew will be looked after....but we are all here for the fun of it, not the GOLD!..nothing like it anywhere in the world!...eight crew spots are open for "Blue Base" July to October, or "ICE" May to October in 2015....all the details/pics are on our web site...or check my profile and PM me....thanks...hope to see you in the team....$400 a week (10 week minimum) is less than most people pay for rent!..and we make no profit from that...But you may be pleased to know that in 2015 we are having only two 'Paying customers" on the island at any one time..to live the life and help...for those who just have 'holidays" and need to get back to real work. They will pay $150 a day and $50 a dive....look forward to hearing from you...thanks...
