    Yep, you can PM Ben here or send him an email at benrmooney@yahoo.co.uk. It's always great to run into some SBers down there.

    I was diving with six or seven of them one week. One or two knew others were going to be there, the others were a surprise. Awesome folks on here!

    Have a great time Guys!
    I really appreciate ya all sharing with regards to experiences w/dive charters on SB. Because of the wonderful things written, I have already pestered Ben into penciling two of us in for 3 dives in June 09. Initial email communication was great w/Ben. He returned answers to questions right away and had an awesome attitude! Can't Wait to Dive Cancun Waters!:grinbandit:

    The wife and I went in March. I had a great dive but she is still working on her propensity to sea sickness so did not enjoy it as much. Ben and crew are great to dive with. We saw some big cuda and a nurse shark. We only got to go for one day since the port was closed the rest of the week. Overall, M.A.D. is a great dive experience and Cancun is great.

    Hi, I just got back from Cancun 4/24, had a great time. I use a scopalamine patch for sea sickness and in stead of leaving it on for the 72 hours, I took 3 on this trip; put a patch on before I left the hotel, and removed and disposed of it after the dives. When I used to do live aboard dives in theChannel Islands I had to leave one patch on for the full time so I got the side effects like blurred vision. This way, with the patch on only for a few hours, I had no problems. I would have been in trouble without it because the water was rought 2 out of 3 days going on the boat out to the dive sites. Hope this helps for your wife
