  1. Panama City/Pedasi/Isla Iguana/Isla Frailes/Isla Coiba/El Valle

    We must have just missed each other, Jake. I couldn't agree more on the visit to Casco Viejo and Cafe Rene (home style meal for $8.50pp w/ inexpensive wine and beer). We also took a boat through the MiraFlores locks and then watched from the overlook above. Truly awe inspiring! We left Panama City and dove two days (March 19-20) from Pedasi Sports Club--owner Bobby, DM Cari very friendly, and a very nice place to stay and dive. Our favoirite restaurant "Smiley's" we returned to several ...
  2. PADI IDC - What it's really like to Go Pro in Costa Rica - A review...

    If you are reading these reviews, you have at least thought about GOING PRO! And if you are like me, you haven’t stopped thinking about the possibility of being a dive professional since the first time you blew bubbles beneath the waves. You may have asked yourself…How do I make the leap? Where is the best place to go? How do I know I am getting the best deal for my money? How good is the education? Are there things to do other than diving where I do my training? I know because I asked all these ...

I can say from a purely un-scientific perspective that argon is an effective tool for

We run a dive charter boat in Resurrection Bay, Alaska. The shore side town is called Seward, and it has all the modern conveniences you could ask for from great restaurants to nice hotels. Our charter boat operates mostly on weekends, but occasionally we'll put together a trip mid-week if we get enough demand. Our rates are $150 per person/ per day. Our shop

  5. The green monster

    We descend to -45m, as planned. The light from the surface is fading quickly in this endless gradient of green.
    Sometimes the ocean is a bit like space, only it's filled with water. And technical divers are like astronauts, only they like to wear black. Underwater, like in space, you give up the ability to walk and breathe freely, but you fly and explore a new world. And that is the beauty of it. And as much as NASA does not fly to Mars just shake E.T.'s hand, technical divers don't necessarily ...
