Hey Dr_Kim!! We are recreational divers (~110 dives) but mostly in the Caribbean. I am admittedly a water temperature wimp. Do you know if the dive company has wetsuits available? Looks like the water temp next month is mid-70s, which is a bit chillier than I could dive without a wetsuit. We'd be interested in diving one day but don't want to pack a wetsuit in the luggage just for that. We've been on all lesbian dive trips before, and yes! it will be a blast.
On a related note, I need to do some more looking into Hard Rock to see if there is any good shore-snorkeling. That would make hauling some mask and fins worthwhile. Look forward to more planning. Jan and Sharon
