This site contains plenty of comments, stories, reports, and opinions. Be careful, responsible, and mature, both in your posts and how you use anything you read here. Moderators do not monitor the accuracy of the content of threads posted here, and the opinions posted herein are personal opinions, and as such can be misleading and/or inaccurate.

    An amazing place to swim!

    A while back they had a post on the top 10 dive sites and one of them was a cavern/cave dive. I found the author's web page and sent an email, but never got a response.

    I wouldn't mind doing the extra deco time if I knew it saved someone's life... I would expect a note or at minimum the courtesy of them telling someone there what happened. Maybe it's time to start...

    Al -- exactly where did you leave the bottle? Just curious as I usually clip mine to the sign at the ear/gallery but might have to hide it now like I do at LR. Maybe MA can make up some camo/sand...

    Picked up and dropped off at CUN. Booked about 6 weeks ahead of time. Just priced out the last week of June and it's $98 for an intermediate, before any coupon you might find.
