The Nekton has awesome deals on their weekly trips to St. Croix, PR in February. All inclusive, showers in the cabin, room service and you can get about 5 or 6 dives a day for a whole week! Any takers?

Sounds interesting, does the trip include any time on land? I actually have an aunt and uncle on the island, I visited about 4 years ago, would def like to go back.

If we get a group together, then we would decide on the date that is best for the majority of the group. That’s how we’ve always done it. I’m saying February because I might go to Roatan by the end of the year. If I don’t do that, then January is doable. What do you guys think about Nesher’s window, Jan 24th through the 31st? Is it not enough time to plan? When I went to the Bahamas with the Nekton we anchored in Bimini for a night and hung out on the island. They might do the same at St. Croix. Check out their site: http://www.nektoncruises.com/. You can always call them directly too if you have any more questions. Sandra

I realize that this is outside of my window of opportunity but there are special promotions by Nekton which indicate $300.00 off the charter fare for the following weeks. 1/31/09 $ 1695 2/14/09 $ 1795 2/21/09 $ 1795 Just subtract $300.00 from these fares and you’ll have a more accurate picture. I’m not trying to promote Nekton but give them a call and confirm what the website published. Look under Specials. Have a good time guys and let me know ALL about it when you return. Nesher

Okay, I’m considering the following: 1. Mona Island, Puerto Rico (the Gallapagos of the Caribbean), 12/6 - 12/13 or 12/13 - 12/20, cost $1,295 (that’s $400 off regular price) 2. St. Croix, PR on 2/14 - 2/21, cost $1,345 that’s $350 off regular price if we go with singledivers.com (or something like that). The Nekton have huge boats, week long trips, all inclusive, private cabins with hot showers, sun deck on top and diving deck below. The crew are awesome and the food is quite good actually. I’ve heard such great things about Mona Island and really want to do it. Besides, it’s such a great deal! I’ll probably end up doing both. What do you guys think?

well I’m out, but I hope you guys have a really nice trip. Maybe next year at some time. I’m going to dive either Belize, Utila or Cayman on the Aggressor. Dive Safe
