    Fantastic videos.

    Notice that bun freezing water temperature was not mentioned in any of the videos and everyone wearing drysuit. :)

    I absolutely love BC; but with all due respect, this is how you sell diving . . .

    It isn't freezing. It's probably 15-20 degrees (F) above freezing.:confused:

    Small price to pay for the best diving anywhere. Fortunately for me, I wear the same gear at home as I do during my dive vacations.

    Depends on your definition of the “best diving anywhere” - cold water and a dry suit don’t fit anywhere in my definition...

    Obviously I was exaggerating LOL. It's freezingly cold for this Indonesian buns (pointing to my skinny rear ends).

    The coldest I ever dived in was in Anchor Place, Wolf Island (Galapagos) at 100 fsw to see the red-lip batfish at 61F (16C). I wore 7mm wetsuit. I wouldn't want to dive below 60F since then and I have no desire to wear expensive drysuit with all the accessories (inflation valve, catheter, P-valve, etc.).

    Enjoy watching the above videos from my warm bed though. :)
