Today we are expierencing large wave off the Atlantic here in the BVI, so I am not diving. We have been having great dives here on Jost Van Dyke. On one our sites, The Cathedral we swim with wild dolphins almost every dive. They will swim up to us and see what we are then wander away. If you want spend some time diving on a great tropical island come on down to Jost Van Dyke and we will make sure you have an out island vacation. Hughisland...

The reefs appear to be in great shape, lots of reef fish, turtles, eels and seahorses. The dive operation is weel set up with excellent 42` boats custom built for diving. Our dives went from...

Sat. we had a fantastic dive on the Oriskany 24 miles south of Pensacola. The photo is me standing on the flight deck, 136` down. It is a year now since it was sunk, and the fish are colecting. Amberjack, red snapper, mutton snapper, barracuda, and a host of tropicals. On this dive we even saw a large octopus tucked into a pipe. It is a great dive if your interested in setting up a trip contact Hugh at 251-948-1220 or call Down Under Dive Shop in Gulf Shores, 251-968-3483. Hugh...

We have been to Roatan 2 times and are going back in June to take our grandson to scuba camp. We ahve stayed at Fantasy Island and at Anthony`s Key. The diving at both is Fantastic. Anthony`s Key is a newer and I think nicer resort. It is somewhat pricier. Fantasy Island tends to draw a younger crowd. Where ever you stay, you will find great wall diving. Large numbers of marine life, and a laid back atmosphere. Have a great trip. Hughisland...
