    I could never get onto scuba. I was too old when I tried to learn. But I do enjoy snorkelling and can get down 12 or 15ft. Can't imagine going to 115ft. Kinda jealous. Love the ocean. Reply With Quote
    Mar 27, 2020 | 12:34 9 Brother in law just got certified on this trip at 63 !
    Did as good on first dive as I did after 50 dives !
    Never to late, i only started 11 years ago , cant imagine not doing it now , got 21 dives in plus took an advanced scuba course on this trip , course was amazing !
    I love snorkelling just as much , Roatan is the best I have saw since that amazing reef comes right to the shore in front of the hotel we were in
    You can snorkel there every day for hours and not see the same thing

    I couldn't do it. Can't swim a stroke. Spent summers behind a hay baler. Was told on a regular basis how people had drowned in various sloughs, ponds and lakes. Every time I hear the name Hughie all I can think is, "They dragged the lake for him in '59".

    Those pics are beautiful. I can enjoy the sea through your lens. Reply With Quote

    You might be surprise what you can do. I can't swim a stroke either and I sink like a rock in fresh water. Salt water is a little more dense so you float easier. I've snorkeled with a life vest. Its damn pleasant actually. Obviously I can't go underwater with the vest of but you can see a surprising amount from the surface. Reply With Quote

  • Mar 27, 2020 | 17:48 16 Thanks for the pics case. The reef sure looks healthy there. Similar to cozumel. The reef off caye caulker in Belize looks quite rough. Too many people out on the reef and the boats stir up too much silt. One guide we had carried a little broom and would clean coral while we explored.Started diving at 55 and recently sat with 3 guys that had been diving together for 40 years. They were now in their eighties Reply With Quote

    dived with a lady last spring in tobago that was 84 , had parkinson's so bad nearly had to be carried into the boat, needed help with her gear. when she got in the water you couldn't tell her from anyone else . she was a card , last thing she said on first dive was to tell instructor that she had a GPS, if they lost her and over the side she went .
    also 2 years ago in Roatan , dove with a father and his son who was autistic . he was hooked after first dive and got certified and dove all week , he was an excellent diver
    Roatan was really doing well with the reef preservation ,we paid a fee for that purpose while diving , money well spent from what i could see. hopefully this doesn't set things back to bad
    haven't got to belize yet , but not hearing a lot of good lately
    bonaire is on the list for sure , but i just can't seem to stay away from Roatan , lol.
    hope this passes quickly without too much economical damage , not to mention human lives that may be lost Reply With Quote
    Mar 27, 2020 | 19:03 20 [ATTACH]5811[/ATTACHThis is a very rare sighting . A sea horse at 114 ft depth and out in the open . Didnt know but learned on the deep dive portion of the advanced open water course, colours actually disappear at depth , as you can see in pic .I have never saw one out in the open and certainly not at that depth !
