Re: South Baja 2018

We would be delighted!

I've been to Cabo Pulmo in August, can confirm it's hot. It wasn't outrageously so IMO for general living, but I wouldn't go hiking at noon in the summer or anything like that. It's not hot in the ocean!

Re: Mexico diving/snorkeling?

Snorkeling is great there too! There's a reef just off the beach that runs sorta parallel to the shore, with a bit of reef, a bit of sand, another reef a little farther out. We saw morays, occasional turtles, and even a small reef shark. Bonus is that it's relatively inexpensive and easy to get ther...

Re: South Baja 2018

Lovely shots Bob!

Both the Socorro and Loreto are high on my list. I hope to be traveling to one or the other next year.

Re: Hello Club!

Welcome to the board, and welcome back to the addiction! Cold water is a bit different than warm, but it has its own unique appeal and beauty. The best thing for your daughter would be to get a mask and gear that fits well. It's challenging to do with a small face and feet, and at some point she wil...

Re: Sund Rock changes

Every time the price has gone up, a large percentage of divers have said "That's it! I'm not going any more!", and then some do, some don't. Perhaps the price has reached the tipping point? It's the shop that takes the brunt of the anger and frustration, I don't blame them at all for not w...

Re: Belize 2018

Great report and photos! I'm glad you liked Belize! I really enjoyed it there. We went to a restaurant there that specialized in lionfish. It's delicious. When I think of all the other fish whose populations got wiped out due to their tastiness, I never thought I'd hope for that to happen to another...

Re: Why isn't there diving near Bellingham?

Multiple rivers and creeks drain into the bay. It's got a muddy bottom and lots of sediment, which tends to make viz really bad.

The rocks look cool though.

Re: Attached Drysuit Boots Cause Floaty Feet?

Carl, if you can make it to the club dive this weekend I can try to find you a less floaty pair of fins to dive with. Everyone here is correct, though, that it's mostly incremental adjustments to weight, technique, and practice over more gear.

Re: I-5 lane closures this weekend

Everybody wants nice roads, but nobody wants to pay for them or take the time to fix them. Not pointing fingers, mind you, that's just the way it is. Speaking of south end road work, Lacey is getting a diverging diamond interchange at Marvin Rd/I-5! They're really cool. https://www.youtube.com/watch...

I-5 lane closures this weekend

Give yourself extra time if you're traveling around the Sound for diving (or not diving) this weekend. There's a Sounders game on Sunday afternoon too.
