    I'll second that Tavernier isn't that much of a drive from Key Largo. However, the boat ride is longer from Tavernier to the Key Largo dive sites. My wife and I dove with Conch Republic over...

    I've got a Manta (GEO) and a Tusa. I prefer the Tusa (dive with both), but, it is definitely more conservative than the Manta. I find the Tusa much more intuitive and the buttons are much easier to...

    Soak it in water for an hour or two and push the button a few times while submerged. It may be some built up gunk on the outside. If that doesn't work, get it replaced or serviced.

    Thanks. It sounds like a similar type setup to the older Aeris wrist computer scratch guards. I think I like it better than the TUSA setup since I hate the bubbles right after entry. I'll have to...

    Question was "Is it worth it". That is a subjective question that depends on the cost of the nitrox, how much you value money, and your perceived benefits from diving nitrox. The only way you'll...
