Scuba Diving With Stuart Cove’s // Second Time Around // Lessons Learned // Dive Operator Review

A NAS Jax Skin and Scuba Dive Club member friend of ours says he won’t dive with Stuart Cove’s anymore. He said boat dive trip experiences are like eating at a restaurant. We might go to the same restaurant, we might even get the same waiter. The waiter might spill water on me, but not you. And so, he says dives with the same operator may be a completely different experience. Well, we’ve dove with Stuart Cove’s twice, and both times had the same experience times four with empty tanks, half-filled tanks, and O-ring failures. A lot of the dive experience centers around those simple items.

Best Dive Towel // Light Compact Fast-Drying // Deep Water Happy

On a trip last weekend to the Bahamas, we realized we really needed compact, efficient towels.

We thought of the courtesy towels by Shark that we used in Cozumel with Blue XtSea Diving, could not find those offered on Amazon, so Bill found what Kara and Nate recommended.

Pack Towl is the brand, and we ordered the beach towel size. They come in four sizes; face, hand, bath and beach. We wanted to be able to use these in a variety of situations, so we ordered the largest; beach.

They come in a variety of sizes and patterns; different colors are different prices! https://amzn.to/2WiBmiX

Why You Should Join a Dive Club // Dive Club Benefits // Safety in Numbers

Why people would want to join a dive club came up in conversation over dinner with our NAS JAX Skin and Scuba Dive Club president this weekend. Our dive club welcomes new members enthusiastically, and we need their fresh perspective, enthusiasm for diving, and . We think the dive club is great, so I decided to examine just all the ways a dive club is beneficial to its members. We pondered if Gen X, Y, and Z don’t join service or even social clubs, and why an in-person, live event is more valuable than an online social group.

How to Use a Dry Bag for Scuba Diving // Heavy vs. Light Dry Bags

Somehow, when I began diving, I had it completely backwards of what was the purpose for a dry bag when you are traveling, so I wonder who else has it all wrong too. I thought that the dry bag was to keep your wet gear from dripping onto your dry clothes. Bwahahahaha! (I was wrong!) Turns out it is exactly the opposite; you put your dry clothes into the dry bag, and let your wet gear inhabit the rest of the bag! Who knew? You probably did!

Packing a Seven-Night Cruise Into Three-Nights // Cruise Ship Dive Trip

The three night cruise ship dive trip is a quick, easy, affordable and satisfying Dive Cruise. Consider the three-nighter to Nassau and CocoCay on Royal Caribbean. We get to cruise, we get to dive, and we feel like we’ve cheated by logging three dives on a three-day weekend! It feels like a seven-night vacation. Royal Caribbean offers a three-nighter out of Port Canaveral nearly every weekend of the year. It’s a perfect trip for a fast taste of diving in the beautiful Bahamas!

How to Carry Your Scuba Dive Mask When Traveling // Should You Keep Your Dive Mask in the Original Box

Should you keep your scuba dive mask in the original hard case for travel, or should you remove the mask and pack it inside your bcd? This probably is as widely disputed as whether the bathroom tissue should lead from the top or bottom. While we are on dive boats, at dive shops, and even on shore dives, I tend to watch to observe how other people deal with the piles of gear that scuba diving requires. Always, I’m looking to streamline our systems and learn the best tips from “the pro’s.”
