    A Google Search will give you lots of hits, and a Search here on SB will give you a few.

    So, tell us more about your plans...?
    You can test the tanks you breathe or - dive on hope.
    Testing is safer...


    Great news for vacation divers who cannot talk themselves into buying a personal CO tank tester!

    >> Rent one for a week or longer here <<

    Yeah it's just the air we breath - at depth!

    I've looked at info about Swan Island, which until last year I didn't know that it existed.
    Swan is a ways below the Caymans and looks that they are not currently much of any inhabitants. Swan used to be a military post, but it has fizzled out. I saw a picture of what looks like a beach but upon research there doesn't appear to be much of anything other than rock or old coral cliffs similar to the bluff on the Brac. There was a liveaboard reported to maybe go there, but I heard that the seas are quite rough year around. Now you know everything that I've learned so far about the Swan Islands.

    Hi Don, We're taking the aggressor out of roatan and diving the island for a week and then returning to roatan and diving for a couple of days. Want to go?

    Flatwood hasn't logged in for over a month. You may do better to Search and post questions in the Central America forum.

    DandyDon is right, but I gotta ask...

    How do you plan on getting there and how you going to dive?

    It's a good thing to do, but when I last looked, no dive op infrastructure whatsoever. I did it aboard a small ship (aka a large boat)


    P.S.- It's alive!

    Could this be a revival of the oldest previously considered dead thread? Where do you report-in with this kind of three year old stuff?

    No I didn't, they pulled our permit. How are you going there? This place is very high on my places to go.
