Yes Bill is still going for sure...it is still a go and we need 7 for the tech option. I am doing a blast nation wide to shops and clubs for both this and the Sea of Cortez trip so we hope to fill it out soon.

I hope you and your friend can join us! -ww


So I am seeing air fare in the $480 range, and it doesn't seem that you can get into Grenada until 8pm Saturday. But I guess I will book it sometime tonight put me down for the Check's in the Mail.

Excellent!

I'll add you to the 'checks in the mail' list...I've heard great things about diving in Grenada so I know you will have a blast :teeth:

Will the shop allow you to bring bands and a manifold to double up the AL 80s? Not too sure if I like the idea of independant doubles. Thanks.



For liability reasons we can not bring our own manifolds. We must dive independent doubles if diving doubles.


So do we need to bring bands to attach to the tanks, or do they already have banded doubles?

So, if my computer is flashing 212 .. 212 .. 212 does that mean I can't go any deeper?

You will need to bring your own bands. They do not offer them to my knowledge but I will verify that.

FYI, I want the tech option, so I am going to have to bring 7.25" hard bands is that correct?
Should I bring mounting hardware for staging bottles as well?

Bill you know what overall plan here is?

Hey Brian...yes the 7.25 bands is correct for alum 80's. As for hardware for the stage bottles we'll need to check on this but OTWDiver's answer is always bring your own for redundancy and to ensure you have what you need.

Hey gang, hope everyone is blowin' bubbles and doin' great!

Last year's trip was absolutely awesome!!!!! I really wish I could make this trip with y'all again, but September is way too busy with hunting seasons, so I'll have to catch the next one instead. The people in Grenada are wonderful and the diving is fantastic! This is definitely one of the best islands in the Caribbean by my standards. Make sure you say hello to all my buddies at the resort and the gang at Aquanauts!

I'll say a good word on your behalf to all the dive shop people.

Its not to late to join this trip, but you might be cutting it close booking your flights ( I hope not)
I talked to Desert Diver the other day and he is looking forward to this trip as well. this trip is going to be for Rec divers as well as Tec divers :)

Maybe we need to take a roll call?

I have early flights and now a bed close to the airport for tomorrow night. I am almost packed. Is there anything I can help with. I can be a mule. Any supplies for the orphanage or other cause?

HeyStan, is there anything you have run out of or forgotten. I will be glad to pack for you as well. I do owe you !!! :twist:

While this has turned out to be a very small trip...we will more than make up for it with our annual visit to the orphanage to deliver school supplies, see the spice factories, chocolate factory, find the monkeys and of course all the world class diving!

We leave tomorrow...see you there! -ww
