    And, another site to add to my list! Thanks, guys!
    I do have a question for you, though. What size tanks are you using in this video? They look smallish to me but it could just be a trick of the camera.

    They're 80cu (or something close to it), but steel instead of aluminum. Tropical Divers has both steel 80 and steel 100 tanks, which is one of the main reasons they're my "go to" shop on Bonaire.

    We just uploaded a new video! We're on land this week, and doing a little grocery shopping.

    The steel 80s hold 80 cf, an AL 80 holds about 77.4 cf. The buoyancy characteristics are much different. From the DGX website:

    Very helpful information as always. Thanks for posting!

    Although, it's looking less and less likely that we'll be going as scheduled at the end of July, now. I just don't see it happening at this point. :(
