One boat dive trip, half a day, two anchored and a drift, 145 dollars per diver.
No thanks

The only dive shop in town, fine there are other things to do there.

Guess I am confused??? $145.00 for 3 dives sounds like a good deal to me????

really dweller?
Well, last year in Guam, a 2 tank boat dive was twenty five bucks.
Did five two tank boat dives in Curacao and the total was 200 dollars..
It's too much for me. Plus, Puerto Penasca isn't really a dive mecca.

Guess I should have went to Guam for vacation last year instead of Florida...
I paid $120.00 per two tank dive for 3 days.:smiley13:

When I went to Puerto Penasca I got on the Rocio Del Mar and went diving for a week. I got a last minute deal so the trip was very cheap compared to most live aboards.

LOL China, is there anywhere you haven't dived? (doved, dove,..divededed?) :smiley20:

I am leaving for Rocky Point in a couple hours, I'll bring my gear just in case.

I can think of quite a few. Solomon Islands, Cocos Island, Sipidan, Tahiti and the Red Sea come to mind right off the bat.

Well! turned out to be a really nice little vacation/getaway...
The wife kid and I hopped on a dive boat to Bird Island and did some snorkling.
It was fanastic! The Sealions played with us all day, and now the kid is really really wanting to get his certification.
He saw the divers surfacing and talking and laughing and decided he wants to get cert. right away.
Plan is to get the class and pool stuff done here and visit big brother in Curacao for the OW classes.
The parinoia about Mexico is really hitting this town hard, it is Spring Break and this resort is only about 1/2 full.
We leave for home today. I will download some pics, maybe do a little editing of our sealion encounter when I get home.

That does sound high, especially when in Florida the rates are much lower, from a dive shop in Pompano:
Boat Rates for 2 dives on different locations (half day trip)
West Palm Beach, Riviera Beach and Palm Beach $70.00
Boynton Beach and Lantana $65.00
Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach $55.00
Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale $55.00

OK Navy.
I included a cool song (well I like it) so as not to be quite as boring.
