Hey All! This is a couple that came from Baltimore to finish up their open water certification. Then we went onto dive cenotes. I love it when people get so excited with their experiences with us. It just reminds us why we do this business. Thanks to Amy & Matt for this great picture. You too can do your referral with us. Just do your bookwork, and pool exercises, then come to beautiful Cancun to do your open water dives. You won't regret this. Have a great week.

A month ago we went and dove with the bull sharks in Playa del Carmen. Wow, that was exciting. There were 8 of us and we descended to 80' and got in a tight circle and waited. Out of nowhere they appeared. They circled around us, and got pretty darn close at times. Jesus kept pushing me out of the circle so he could get the photo opportunity with sharks behind me. That was okay till one came a bit to close for my likings. It was a cool experience and if you want to go let me know and I'll set it up. The best part was shore to the dive site was 5 minutes. Here's some pictures for you to see. Happy New Year to everyone, and let's go diving.

This was such a super experience, and can't believe I didn't do this in the last 5 years. My friend Laura has been working for her university hours with the foundation that saves the turtles. She does everything from office work to gathering eggs in the middle of the night. She gave me an experience of a lifetime to free some of the little guys & gals. We went out to the Playa de Marlin and met up with around 70 people, most of them volunteers. A lot is educating young kids the importance of this, so I just stood beside them and learned. The 1st turtle I got to hold was the one I thought I got to free. I already named her Bertha.
Then Bertha went back into the bucket we walked down to the beach where I was given another little one. So, I named him Wilbur, I know you are all thinking where does she come up with these names? He was fiesty and ready to hit the waters, then they counted down and we released them to the ocean. Amazing fact only 1 of 100 make it to 3 years old. I'm sure Wilbur is going to be one of those, he was a fighter, and I gave him a kiss and said to come back to visit.
What a unique experience we get to have living in the beautiful Caribbean. I would have never had this pleasure as all the million of other treats I always talk about if I wouldn't have taken the chance to move here. My life is unique, full of surprises, and full of love from the great people around me, and I thank God to have let me have this opportunity.
Okay, next, whale sharks!!!! I'll keep you posted, Jesus is out doing a night dive right now, wish I was there, but got the admin side of the house to take care of...Take care until next time....

After 4 months of paperwork we finally have everything ready to start working off our boat. Jesus is out today with divers. We went harpooning a couple of days ago and got some nice fish for cerviche. We are going next week to snorkel with the whale sharks, I'll update with pictures. The guides are now charging $185 per person, pricy but well worth it. Take care, stay cool, and be back with more pictures.

You know the time is right to come down for summer vacation. Whale sharks are back in the area for snorkelers. We plan on taking our boat over to Isla Contoy and see what we find. Oh, we got a boat and is all ready for divers, so come on down, we will only take 4 people at a time to keep it personal and not too crowded. I'll post a photo in a day or 2 (promise Cynthia) so you can see what it looks like. We named it "Cha Cha Cha". Okay this fish was just hanging there, was ready to tell a tall tale, but it was somebody elses!
