I've got to look at my schedule but I'm going to try to do this trip. I think Scott is right, do this before it gets discovered and possibly ruined.

I'm going to look at flights and I'll let you know.


Excellent!!

I think Scott is right, too..we should enjoy Mother Earth as long as we can, but who knows how long that is

let us know what we can help you with!

Hi Kim,

Okay I'm in for the Holbox portion only (gotta be back at work on the 17th) but I want to come 3 or 4 days earlier before the trip either to Cozymel or Holbox and meet y'all there for the week-end.

Try to act as old as your shoe size once a day...it will keep you young and happy (my shoe size is 6&1/2)

Love like you haven't been hurt before.

Sign me up!!

I've checked air fare and it looks good. I'm going for both Holbox and Cozumel. I'll get a check in the mail.

I don't want to miss this one.

There is also an island near Holbox that is inhabited by flamingos, got to go see that also.

:-D

Carla I would expect we can get one of the boat drivers to take us to that Island especially during lunch break....that would be cool to see....sometimes they go out an hour to find the Whalesharks...but when they find them...they are all over the place :D

Now we have to get fingrabber to go on this. trip...she made the following quote a while back

I personally want to do the Cozumel/Holbox trip...WHALESHARKS!!!


So Kim if anything come and do the Holbox portion of this trip :lmao: :P :lmao:

Swimming with the Whalesharks and most likely Mantas...Diving in Cozumel....The vis in Holbox will only be 15' to 20' because of all the food in the water...that is why we will have the opportunity to see so many in one place!

Please reserve me a spot on both the Holbox and Cozumel diving adventures. Tentative arrangements pending for flights into Cancun on the 14th and out of Cozumel on the 23rd. I will contact Kamala upon her return from the Bahamas trip to work out the final details. Airline rates from Charlotte are great for round trips...but one way flights are quite pricey these days.

As long as you have faith, there is hope.

Kim,

I think you will come down with a malady on those days and the only cure is snorkling with whalesharks. We could also arrange for doctor excuses on those days to be faxed in while we're gone if we want to stay longer.

Que :fish:



Jerry and Carla,

Can't wait to see y'all again.

Sign me up for both. tj (aka "She who will be obeyed") is on for just the Holbox leg. d/o for both legs, just try to get tj and me in the same double room (unless someone makes her a better offer :diver:)


I'm on my way to Key West, will drop a deposit check when I return - the way I read it, I need $200 for tj, $300 for me.
No aquarium, no tank in a marine land, however spacious it may be, can begin to duplicate the conditions of the sea. And no dolphin who inhabits one of those aquariums or one of those marine lands can be considered normal.

:fish: Lets hope that Carla's luggage does not get lost again :diver: .....Carla...please do not fly Continental... :lmao:

I cannot believe how fast this trip is filling up for Holbox :cool2: ....If anybody is thinking about the Holbox portion of this trip do it sooner than later.....This is tough to expand as there are limited number of Hotel rooms with AC.....room in the Vans and Boats.....

From what I have read and a couple of people I have talked too...This is comparable to or better then Ningaloo Reef off Western Australia....and it has only been discovered in the last few years :lmao:
