Reef House or Coco View in Roatan???

07 November 2015 - 04:53 AM

Going in Jan-Feb 2016. Trying to decide between the two. Know that both have great reps. Reef House sounds a little rougher on meals with not much choice, but a wider variety of dive sites. CCV: I'm concerned about the number of dives that we'd do on the house reef. Appears that they dump you off for the second dive every AM and possibly in the PM. Would end up doing up to 50% of dives on the house reef. Is it THAT good? I prefer macro/super but will carry WA/dome stuff.


Any other comments are welcome. I'll be traveling solo.


Background. D7000/Aquatica with YS-D1 strobes. Have dove all over the world, many trips to Indo, Phily, Fiji, etc. plus most places in the Caribbean. Due to back problem, no longer doing long haul flights. Staying in the western hemisphere for now.





FS: Ikelite TTL Adapter for Nikon # 4302

02 March 2015 - 05:45 PM

Selling the last of my Ikelite strobe gear. This is used to obtain TTL using Ikelite strobes with non-Ikelite housings. It has both TTL and Manual settings so you can go either way. IT IS ONLY FOR NIKON CAMERAS (i-TTL). I used it with it with an Aquatica housing. The housing end goes into a 5 pin Nikonos bulkhead and the other end mates to a Ikelite sync cord. As you can see from the pics, both connections are in good shape.


I used it for about a year (60-70 dives), then went to a straight manual config. eliminating the adapter.


It is listed on Backscatter for $350.00. I'm asking $240.00/BO. Shipping to the lower 48 included.


Payment via PP.

FS: Ikelite DS-51 strobes (2X)

19 February 2015 - 06:23 AM

I am selling a pair of Ikelite DS-51s that have been lightly used. I purchased them new, used for 2 dive trips, about 30 dives. Then I found a great deal on DS-125s which became my primary strobes. Included are diffusors and five spare battery compartment covers. On these strobes, the battery compartment o-ring is integral with the cover, so you must replace the cover to replace the o-ring. At least that's what Ikelite says to do.


These strobes are light weight, great for travel and for ease in use UW. Works in TTL or manual modes.


Looking for $275.00 each/OBO. I will ship to the lower 48 at no additional cost.


PP only.


More pics available on request.
