  1. I have been told that it is not ideal to dive the Red Sea during the winter, so I need a recommendation outside the Caribbean for a dive vacation over the New Years holiday. After diving in Sharm this past summer I don't want to return to the Caribbean. The Red Sea was marvelous. Is there a place comparable to the Red Sea that has great diving during late December? Is the winter a good time to go to Wakatobi? Can you recommend a specific resort or liveaboard? Price does not play an important role in my choice. Thanks, John
  2. Some Sharm resorts boast of a "house reef." I am planning my first dive vacation to Sharm in 20 days and I am looking for the right resort. Are any of these house reefs similar in access as is the mainstay in Bonaire? I am in search of a luxury resort in Sharm, and I am overwhelmed by the number of choices. John
  3. I’ll be in Israel for a month starting mid-August and I am planning to spend a couple of weeks diving in Sharm. Is there a competent Israeli travel agent thoroughly familiar with Sharm hotels and dive operators who can get me there in one piece? I am a US citizen and I am getting my Egyptian visa in the next couple of days. Thanks.
  4. I have the Canon 20D with an Aquatica housing, along with a Canon 10-22 and 60 Macro. I am thinking about purchasing a fisheye. Will the Canon make a significant difference in my wide angel shots? Tom
  5. In the past I stayed at Captain Don's on two trips, and I am planning to go back to Bonaire in mid-July. Is there a better house reef or resort in Bonaire than Captain Don's? I thoroughly enjoyed the freedom and ease of diving at Captain Don's (and loved the pizzia), yet I am not sure there isn't something even better. Any suggestions? Tov
  6. I dove just about everywhere I could think of in the Caribbean, but I have never been to Costa Rica. How is the diving in Costa Rica different from places like Belize or Bonaire? Can you recommend a great dive resort in Costa Rica? How do I find which is best? Thanks, T
  7. Are there any reliable online dive travel companies with great dive packages? I just got off for a couple of week in July and I don't know where to go. Any with last minute deals? I’ve dived in the Caribbean extensively, but that’s it. I never dived anywhere else. Thanks! Tov
  8. Arnon, thank you so much for you help. Also, is there a top dive resort in Eilat that you recommend that combines a nice hotel and dive facilities? I checked out your photos on your site and they are amazing. Any info on the livaboard that you recommended and flights to get there would be very helpful. Thanks, Tov
  9. Can you recommend a really nice livaboard in the Red Sea? I plan to go to Israel in mid-August and I would like to hop over to the Sinai for a once-in-a-lifetime livaboard trip. It has to be really comfortable or my girlfriend will not get on. Any suggestions? Tovy
  10. Just don't stay at Beaches!
  11. Can anyone recomend a good dive resort in Israel? I'll be in the Holy Land for a few weeks. Do you have any recomendations? Tov
  12. I just bought a Canon 17-40 F4.0L to use with my Canon 20D. I have an Aquatica housing. Which port am I supposed to use? thanks, Tov
  13. Bonaire is the easiest diving in the world. Personally, I love Catain Don's. However, Romon's Villiage in Belize is fantastic. Bear in mind that the fish are much bigger in Belize, and dive boats often chum the water for great fishy pictures.
  14. I'm going to be in south Florida for 5 days; does anyone know of a great place to spend my time diving?
  15. I am considering to staying at the Palau Pacific Hotel? Is that the best place to stay in Micronesia for diving? What are the currents like? Do you have to hang on to a rope or anchor in order to not be swept away?
