Is there a dive operator that has a fast boat and goes to Turneffe Elbow? We have a member of our group that does not do well on long boat rides.....

Amigos Del Mar - but it is a two hour boat ride any way you cut it. Get some pressure bands or drugs for the ride. Is is really nice out there and Amigos has the nicest boat to get you there. Alot of dive shops will sell you a Turneffe trip and you end up going with Amigos as they have one of the bigger boats.

We stayed at Turneffe last year and dove the Elbow every day for a week! It is the most amazing dive site and well worth the travel. If you are concerned about seasickness, contact your physician and ask them about oral Zofran. This is a medication that can really help with the nausea and doesn't make you feel weird like Scopolamine patches do. You can take Zofran and still be OK to dive.

Happy diving!
