    You may not care, but if you do -I just finished my blog post on why I ended up choosing Grand Cayman over Roatan (as well as The Red Sea and The Philippines). It probably won't apply to many here since we are tech divers and our needs differ from recreational divers who typically love Roatan. But since I started this thread, I figured I would tell you what I decided and why.

    So...the overarching criteria was "TEC" diving and the support for real-deal mixed gas.

    In 101 posts, I think I saw you mention, in passing, the word "TriMix" just once in this thread.

    You can deep dive in any number of places, maybe even Alaska. it's just a matter of getting Helium. Many islands have flower shops or places that sell birthday balloons. I'd go that way. Side mount it.

    Enjoy watching your gauges in the dark while in paradise.

    (We should start a TEC Forum)

    When they do, title it "which dive ops will support TEC in Caribbean, Red Sea, ______, ______, or ________, somewhere on the Ocean
