    SCUBA Diving...

    Who's done it? Where have you been? I've been to The Cook Islands, Belize, Cozumel, Bali (twice), and Puerto Rico.

    Anyone have any favorite dive destinations?

      Sharm el Sheik in Egypt, Roatan in Honduras.. Took my open water in Denmark, cold and murky!! Then i went to Roatan for three months and took my divemaster.. On a side note Roatan is a transit island for cocaine going from south america to the us, so if you're into that kind of thing, it is highly recommended!

        Same as superman, got the certs as a teen but haven't gone for years. Have only done the Keys for saltwater, most of my hours have been in freshwater lakes around mid-west. Got to hit those early in the year for clarity(think ice under the docks).Have swam with small schools of walleye and rock bass in the lakes. When diving behind dams have run into old forest areas(scary), wanted to dive the old town that is there but DNR watches it real good. Would love to go again, maybe some day.

                I always go to marsa shagra ecovillage in egypt

                Cool place to dive and to get stoned

                One time i toked some hash with an egyptian guy working there just before diving

                after that i made the mistake of taking the wrong bottle to go diving.

                I took an empty one with only 50 bars so i had to snorkle back all alone stoned while everyone was 40 meters below me

                since then i have never toked up before diving

                also went to the philippines once but underwater life was dull compared to egypt

                      Diver here. I've dove in Cozumel probably the most but also the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Bonaire, Aruba, Curacao, Little Cayman, Puerto Vallarta, Siint Maarten etc..

                      Imo it is hard to beat Cozumel diving, it is so consistently good and such a nice place to be.

                      This winter I'm headed to Australia/New Zealand and am going to be for sure diving the Poor Knights Islands on the North Island and also in Australia.

                      As far as Australia goes, how is the diving South of the Great Barrier reef? I will be in Sydney for four days and want to get up to the ss yongala but I think it's too far.


                      Anyway I love diving, the coolest thing I do, by far.

                        How's Bonaire? I really would like to do Bonaire.

                          Bonaire is also hard to beat. The entire island is a marine park and almost every dive site is on the leeward side and marked on the road. Most people rent a truck, head to the drive through air/nox fill up stations and then just park at any one of the sites and hop in.

                          Bonaire is especially well known for macro life, lot's of seahorses etc.. It isn't well known for bigger pelagic life which in my mind is the biggest (yet very small) drawback. It has been rated as one of the top dive destinations in the world for a long time and I think it deserves it.

                          I have yet to dive the red sea or the South Pacific. I would die to go to truk lagoon etc..

                            The Cooks were awesome. We got to dive w/ Humpback whales.
