President's Day Afternoon Dive? [Redondo]

Monday Fed 18 is a holiday for many folks, so how about spending the afternoon diving at Redondo?

High tide is about 3:11pm, so maybe meet at 2pm and splash around 2:30 ish?

Let me know if you're interested!

Re: How do you secure and protect your camera?

I don't think this is a real world problem. Bolt snaps are used the world over for securing Stage Bottles, Cameras, etc. If cave divers are okay with it then so am I. A good steel or brass bolt snap is going to be very secure and i've not had one fall of randomly in a Dozen years and 1,000 dives wit...

Re: ThThTh 12/13

The forecast at 7pm in Redondo is about 9-10 mph WSW. I'd be happy to dive ThreeTree if that works better.

Re: Hello from Roatan!

Glad you made it! I'm curious why it was such a challenging flight. I went there a few times, years ago, and I recall something like a 4 hour flight to Houston and another few hours to Roatan. There was the time I got food poisoning eating in the Houston airport on the way home, but better the less ...

Re: Sixgill @ Redondo 8/2

Amazing experience Derek! Great pictures. I didn't see the shark but I did get a consolation prize of a Giant Skate!! It was at least 4 feet long and 3 feeet wide. Biggest one I've ever seen. It buzzed past me as I hung out at 90 - 100 feet waiting for the SixGill. Redondo Aug 2 2018 (9 of 61).jpg R...

Re: Local flight with a scuba tank - is it doable?

If you are traveling domestically you can save a lot of hassle mailing gear. Check online for rate comparison, I found that USPS is generally cheaper for bulky and heavy items.

Re: Local flight with a scuba tank - is it doable?

USPS will ship anything if you pack it right. I shipped 70 lbs of dive gear back to Seattle from Santa Barbara once for about $50. I shipped gear to and from Hawaii once as well. As long and you empty the tanks and remove the valves you should not have a problem. Ship them to a hotel or other busine...
