Trish and I were in the Society Islands (Tahiti, Raiatea, Taha’a, Bora Bora and Moorea) for a seven day cruise (July, 13-20, 2013) on the Paul Gauguin. This is a smaller ship (about 300 passengers). The cool part is that there is an opening on the stern that is used for water sports. For diving, you just jump in the Zodiac and the dive site is about 10-15 minutes away. The two guys in the photograph are crew members. There is an abundance of fish. The most remarkable were the eagle rays and the ...

The first week of November Trish and I went to Grand Cayman. It is a relatively easy trip from Denver through Houston all in one day.

For comparison, I stayed at Sunset House in 2010 which was less expensive but more ...

Checking bags (we brought all our own gear) and boarding went very smoothly. San Salvador International is basically a single building, two room affair at the side of the runway. Club Med is...
Cozumel September 2009

I spent at week in Cozumel (Sept 26 to Oct 3). I stayed at the Scuba Club Cozumel and had a great time. It was so off season that there was only me and two other couples for most of the week. We just hung out together. It made for a very uncrowded dive boat. For me the diving was some of the best I have every done. The group even did the C-53 wreck; a new experience for me going inside. I know that Cozumel has been reviewed before but I want to say that the boat crew, dive masters (Ariel in part...
