    I'm no good sleeping on planes, and I suffer horribly from jet lag. But what is really interesting to me is that diving seems to fix my jet lag really fast. If I stay on land, it usually takes me...

    Hi Dee. That's quite an itinerary! In some cases it would probably be easiest for you to book directly through the excursion desk of your cruise ship (ease of payment, etc.), but here's my take on...

    This board eats posts?

    This is why I'm not a fan of console-mounted computers. It might be worth investing in a wrist-mount boot for the computer for trips like this. (Pop it out of the console...

    I'm confused. Your SOLO website states that the 2012 expedition was the last one except as private charters. Is this 2013 trip a private charter cruise?

    I'm guessing you booked your personal trips with ScubaJunkies, as they are the ones who most frequently schedule their divers. A couple of other budget places follow that process as well, but most...

    The Visayas gets my vote for the most diversity, and for that the easiest international airport is Cebu. If you're flying into Manila, I'd say Anilao is my fave and Puerto Galera a distant second....

    The resorts can't promise 100% that you will dive Sipadan because they are not in control of the permits. Only Sabah Parks can issue permits, and therefore all resorts have to give you a conditional...
