Re: Searching for a Caribbean volunteer dive experience

I have not done any personally, but there is a TON of Coral Restoration going on in Bonaire that is pretty impressive. A google search might turn up some leads of folks to talk to.

YMMV You might one to put the canopy up behind the 1st couple of parking spots and that way there's still plenty of Room for everybody to get...

Re: best beginner camera? (looking @ G7x iii vs TG6)

Beginner camera TG-6 hands down. And you can take it to the stratosphere. Throw in a tray and at least one strobe and you've got a really good rig.

Re: Bonaire, December 2019

Nice report and pictures! Thank you so much for posting! Bonaire is my happy place, and I'll be leaving for my 14th trip in just 30 days, but hey, who's counting?!

Re: Neah Bay water temps.

My guess is that since you were relatively shallow that accounted for the warmer temps. 10 degrees colder than what you experienced is not uncommon. Two great dives!

Very nice!

Perhaps more than you're "signing up for" but this format would be fabulous as a "guide" to local dive sites and beyond.

Re: Monterey, CA weekend

Do I understand your post correctly that you went out on a charter, AND you specifically hired a guide to come along on the dive?

Sometimes both are provided, just wanted to check.

Re: Octopus Hole?

Very often visibility in the Hood Canal is crap above 30-40 fsw. It often opens up quite nicely below that. The rare days when it is crystal clear in the top 30' are wonderful - because so much life is in that top 30-40'. So... Octopus Hole. Great dive. But if I remember correctly the wall starts at...
