    Man I will miss heading to the pier and hopping on Shamu or Bandita and seeing Pedro. I wish you all the luck in the world on your next steps. Thank to you and the crew for teaching me to be a better diver, the great world of backplates, the many friends I have made on your boats and for more than 150 dives with you.

    Thanks for the great times & like Brian I'll miss being with Pedro. Wish him the absolute best of times should he actually find a way to retire. If he can't hack that lifestyle I'm sure I'll bump into him & get all caught up. It's a sad day & I'm truly glad I wasn't in your shoes making this decision. Businesses world wide have had to do it & it's not over yet from the sound of things. May the future hold better times & new ventures that both challenge & invigorate you. Stay safe & best of luck in wherever this leads you.

    Christi, your noted commitment to your employees and the sport is truly admirable. BlueXT might not physically exist any longer, but what you’ve done, experienced and shared with others and the way you did it, will live on in the minds and hearts of those who you’ve touched and never forgotten. IMHO, a valued return on your investment. Thanks for what you’ve done!!

    Christi, Meeting you for the first time, 18 years ago, at the Caleta with your Scooter and Metal Cash Box, Diving and Learning valuable dive skills from Pedro, enjoying the sandwiches and homemade baked goods for surface intervals and all of the wonderful times we all had together, are just a few of the Very Good Memories we have of diving with Blue XTSea. We will always remember the good times. We wish you, Pedro and the entire staff the Very Best! Your involvement and accomplishments in the Diving Community of Cozumel have been and will continue to benefit Cozumel Diving. Onward and Forward, Mike and Sue Behm

    So sorry, Christ, but I can completely understand. My 50+ dives with BlueXTSea were all very memorable. Hoping that you and Pedro have happiness and success in whatever you do next.

    And this:
