Re: WTB - Canon Powershot S100 Housing

The need has passed....I was leaving on a trip with the intent of doing REEF surveys, and I thought a point and shoot would help with identification of the fish I didn't recognize. Thanks everyone!

Re: Club Dive Cove 2 07-22-18

I love the underwater selfie!

And what a glorious day to be under and next to the water! Thank you everyone for help with setting up, breaking down, cooking food, eating food, and being buddies. Y'all are the bestest. :luv:

Unless it's claimed by the time I get there, I'll be setting up near the picnic table on the southeast side of Cove 2. Look for the crowd of NWDC shirts!

Calvin's Crack

Calvin's Crack is both our Glorious Leader's, uh, bottom parts, and a great dive site in Roatan. Dark, narrow, crusted with growth, filled with hidden critters, you enter at the top, make your way down, and exit out of the wall at about 90 feet or so. Make your way back up the wall, peeking into hol...

Re: Club Dive! Club Dive! Club Dive! SUNDAY July 22!

Most likely it will be on the area between Coves 1 & 2, but it will depend on who is set up where when we get there. I'll hang a NWDC shirt from my canopy.

Re: Quadra Island Adventures!

Y'all got some great photos even with the challenges! I loved the tube worm site too! It's amazing how they soak up the light. I went up there several years ago on a weekend with the currents were relatively mild, and diving could still be a bit challenging. It is an absolutely lovely place to dive ...

Re: WTB - Canon Powershot S100 Housing

Eh, it's more of a "I'm about to do a bunch of REEF surveys...hey, a camera would help! And I have a Powershot already!" kind of thing. I'm not that invested in it, but I might order one for the next time.

Thanks guys!

Salt Creek is the only site where I've seriously considered wearing a wetsuit. The entry/exit can be brutal!

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...

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.

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...
