Just returned from AC (last night) Did two dives a day for the week and pica pica was DEFINITELY a problem. Many o fthe divers we spoke to or dove with had numerous stings. I was only hit two or three times, and that was with a full wet suit, hood and all exposed areas covered with Safe Sea lotion. The divemaster who owns the dive operation we were with refused to dive until they are gone. Good news is that the "Sea lice season" is only about 6 weeks long, and should be ending soon. Wear Safe Sea!

We are going to AC forn the first time on 6/12. Is pica pica still a factor at this time and if so what can you do to prevent it? Same thing with mosquitos are they always and everywhere a nuisance? Any info will be appreciated! Thanks!
