Diving in PDC

As some of you already know Softy and I are going to be I PDC,from next Saturday til Tuesday the 25th.

Anways I am planning on doing at least three dives three. One in Cozumel, one in Puerto Morelos and maybe another in Cozumel. And from what I've heard and read that diving from Puerto Morelos all the way through PDC is just as good as Cozumel specially if you are interested in animal life etc.

Accept for Cozumel the other locations of the dives are subject to change. Anyways since Softy doesn't dive, I am looking for at least one other person to go diving with.

If there are any takers you may list here on this thread, or by pm.

Stogey - We'll be there from Jan. 19-25. I dive, but my SO does not, so I am always on the lookout for dive buddies. We are staying at the Tank-ha Hotel (formerly the Maya Bric) because we got an excellent dive/room package. So I know I'll be doing at least three dives with them, but would definitely consider doing some others as well - especially Cozumel.

What days are you planning on diving? As I stated before my sig other doesn't dive either. As far as Cozumel goes you can either dive from a boat or right off the beach at Chakanaab Park.

I'll probably dive with Tank-ha on Thurs., Fri. and Sat. (Jan. 20, 21, 22). Beyond that, need to check with my better half on other activities/plans but will keep you posted.

I have the Tank Ha site on hand, so maybe I'll just check it out the Friday that I'm there. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to hook up with ya.

Their dive profiles are pretty good. The one thing I like about it is that you start by 830 and done by noon. So there is plenty of time to do other stuff or just relax or what ever.

Looking forward to it! I really want to do a Cozumel dive, and that's not part of my Tank-ha package so if you make Cozumel plans keep me in mind.

Also, looks like we've got a Playa Info happy hour going on Friday night (1/21). I was planning to dive Sat. a.m., but that might depend on just how happy we get on Friday!

Hi E, Stogey is actually in D.C. tonight at work,but will be back here tomorrow night for a few hours. He really doesn't have much time off till next Fri-14th & we leave Sat. The best days to dive Coz are when the least huge ships are in-ie. Sun. or Mon. We're hoping to go on Mon. 17th,we have Coba booked with James & Anna on Wed 19th and I plan to try to scedule my skydive for Sun 23rd or Mon 24th,but that will be over early in the day,I believe.Mike is going to check into going on a Tank-ha dive the Fri[21st] that you do.Funny thing is-he's in D.C. more than home till thurs 13th. He'll get back to ya tomorrow. Gail

How funny! We could have tried to arrange a pre-vacation Playa Info happy hour in DC, had we known!!

We really want to go to Coba, too. But Wednesday is the only day that doesn't work (as we arrive on a Wednesday and depart the following Tuesday evening). And, unfortunately, it's the only day for the Anna and James tour. So I am still debating an Alltournative tour or doing it on our own via bus . . . we'll see.

Regardless, it looks like we will have opportunities to dive, drink, etc. when we are all in PDC. I simply cannot wait!!!!

From what I've read with your replies is that, that following Sunday could be a good day to take a dive in Cozumel. I do plan to do a dive in Cozumel the first Sunday or Monday that we're there, but that will only be at Chakanaab Park for a beach dive.

So hopefully by Friday I can give you a little heads up on what the diving is like there.
