why don't any of you use proper fins?

(yes i hate all of you)

:good: :)

Mikey - we would have loved to bring proper fins, but they are way too long for my dive bag! I haven't figured out a good way to travel with long fins yet...

You guys made it into one of the UK tabloids today. Well done and thanks for all the great daily videos - photos and reports.

Stew - very cool! In print? We've seen the online versions, but not the print versions.

We had a nice farewell dinner last night:

Besides the limited baggage on American Eagle from Dominica at least you have free WiFi at the airport.

But you should beware of TSA in San Juan, they will make you empty your camera bag so that your housing, camera get x-rayed separately. Allow time to repack.

Thanks, Stew! I love that Andrew has become a Japanese woman in most of the articles.

Thanks for uploading the scan. We're sitting in the airport in Dominica, all typing madly away on our laptops

Managed to upload a cute story about Scar and a couple of juvenile whales to my blog just before leaving the hotel.

Eric & Tony

These are amazing pics. What are the permit requirement to interact with the whales in-water?

Regards
