    Hi
    Hi
    Most decent camera underwater housings are rated to a depth of at least 40 metres (130 feet). This provides some level of redundancy on shallower dives.

    Hi
    There is the potential for choppy waters (dives being cancelled) and reduced visibilty at any time of year. Having said that - we always visit out of hurricane season as we like to dive every...

    Hi
    I'm bringing the hood as last year I was stung on the head. I'm as bald as Kojak so an easy target for those pesky stinging critters.

    Hi
    Everyone has different shape and size heads /features. If you buy your own gear (and ensure it fits correctly), you wont have the issue of a constantly leaking mask.

    Ouch - That really hurts

    We were last at CN in March 2011. As usual every day was spent in the sea, however on that trip many people including myself were getting jellyfish / hydroid stings. Some people had little / no...

    The sea conditions here make it one of the easiest places for someone learning to dive. Warm and clear water with very little current. There's sandy bottoms and no drop offs. Almost like a deep...

    Hi Betty In Toronto,
    Agreed - it's a shame to have to choose between diving and a nice meal. We are both divers (but we also met golfers who were disappointed to miss their cooked breakfasts).

    One comment that I heard several times and agreed with. Cooked breakfasts starting at 7.00a.m. would be a great idea. There's always a mad rush by golfers, divers and people going out for the...

    Hi
    Most straight men (myself included) secretly think Lesbians are fantastic.
    So I can't imagine them having any issues, however I'm not sure whether Couples may have occupancy rules on this.

    We meet lots of people each day at Couples especially other divers, however we don't get asked to join them for dinner.
    The reason I'm sure is my personality. I'm always "playing the fool" - it...

  22. Are Couples Negril Dive Staff Fantastic ?

    We think they definitely are - they really do go that "extra mile" to look after the diving guests.
    We got back from CN yesterday, having done 23 dives each over the 14 days we were there.

    There's another at CN, however I understand that it is only for scuba divers as they need to warm up after the dives.
