did anyone get in on that one day sale from Continental @ $105 from Houston?

any one going to be on AC July 22 to 25 that needs a dive buddy, give me a shout. I am a new diver, so that needs to be taken into consideration.

Hey Pete
Too bad you are not going this week. I would be happy to buddy up (That is once I learn what the heck I'm doing). Watch this board over the next few weeks and you are sure to find someone posing the same question for the same time period. I say watch the board because there are so many posts (Read every one-they contain wonderful and invaluable information), that a week old thread could easily be lost or forgotten. I think three new pages of posts have been generated just since I began lurking around the board a few weeks ago.

Have a great trip!

Well maybe we can buddy up in Hyannis.

Don't forget an underwater camera, you can get them for about 12 bucks. Probably more expensive in SP.

By the time you get to your 4th open water dive you will be comfortable enough to use it.

If the bars were out side security at DFW, I would join the gang of you there tomorrow, but alas , you need a ticket to get through.

Saw you guys mention underwater cameras. Just an FYI - the one's at Walmart/KMart work great for snorkeling and down to 10 feet but will crush under the pressure at depth greater than that.

Blue Hole Dive center (they have a link under goods & services on the home page of the board) will rent a real dive camera (a See and Sea MX 10) for a reasonable cost including film.

Kent and Laurie will fix you up there. They load and unload the film and set everything up so you cannot screw it up. Plus they are real friendly. I would hate for you to miss a great shot because the inexpensive camera pooped out.

Elly, just my opinion but i got certified in AC last year with Billy Leslie at Hustler dive shop. Went back and dove with him again last November and he is great, easy going and extremely funny plus a great safety concscious instructor. Most importantly, don't worry and have fun.

Thanks for the advice Robert. I had heard about renting cameras for the dives, and I think that is just what I will do. Will also add your reccomendation to my list of instuctors to visit.


Funny you should mention Hyannis. Will be flying in there in August. Small, small world!
