    My bucket list:
    Chuuk
    Galapagos
    Palau

    What you should put on yours:
    Morehead City, NC WWII wrecks and an abundance of sand tiger sharks. Most know about U-352, it's a cool dive no doubt, but in my opinion there are better dives in the area

    Cocos and Galapagos are on my list, as is the Sardine Run.

    Raja Ampat and Komodo are my favorites so far and I keep going back to those two. The SS Yongala in Australia is also incredible. Almost all of my top favorite dive sites ever are in these places.

    So, come & join me in September 2020. You two can share a cabin together for $795 / diver group discount and have a lifetime chance to go down to 1000' depth on a 3-person submarine. :D

    Gathering a group for Cocos with Argo on 10-20 September 2020

    It’s not in the stars, budget, or plan in the immediate future. :(

    Dan, PM me some info if you would. I'd love to head back to Cocos. I was there Aug 2017, and it was spectacular. I dove with a 2mm skin the whole week on Agressor II

    I tried to PM you but the system is not allowing it for some reason.

    Anyway, I set this trip up including group discount with Tim Yeo of Bluewater Travel. I think we still have a couple spots available. You can see more detail info here: 2020 September Cocos Trip

    Just my opinion, but I think this is a pretty stupid goal

    Just dove thru the legendary Arch at the Blue Hole in Dahab Egypt, last month. AKA, the Divers Graveyard. Look on YouTube for Monty Halls Blue Hole. There are many other videos on the arch as well. You can reach 300-600 feet 50 feet right from the shore.

    We did a total of five spectacular diives at the Blue Hole as part of a PADI Trimix certification course. It was much more interesting than Bonaire where I did my trimix training.

    We are going again August 2020, if anyone is interested.

    Loved Malapascua Philippines...however...because I spent so much time in Hawaii...Ni'ihau is by far a must. I know....people don't put Hawaii on their bucket list...but if you get with local divers you will see amazing things. Dragon Moray...humpback whale came up to us...three giant frogfish sitting there smiling. And let's not forget all the nudibranchs.
