  1. Hi, I'll be traveling to Mauii in January with some family. We will be staying on the North west side of Mauii by the Kapalua airport. Can anyone recommend some good dive operators? I have never been to Mauii/Hawaii. I see most of the operators tend to be in the south region of Mauii. I assume its best to get an operator that is close to your resort? Do some operators offer shuttle services? Any information is very much appreciated. Thanks, Brett

  4. Hi, I am moving to San Diego this week and looking for some good advice on Dive Operators in the region. I saw one lets you get a 1 year pass for $1000. Does any one have recommendations? Is the diving worth it? I am moving from the Midwest so the potential to dive most weekends of the year is very exciting for me! Any information is extremely appreciated. Thanks, Brett
  5. Hi, I will be over in the South Pacific/Asia in Late September/Early October and looking at the following locations for Scuba diving: Dumaguete, Phillipines vs Mabul/Sipidan Mainly looking at these areas as they seem to be good value. Want to keep it to about $1500 max for 7 nights accomidation + diving. I did however see that October is the end of the rainy season in the Phillipines. Has anyone been there in October? Would Mabul/Sipidan be any better weather wise? Its not too far from the Phillipines. I realize October may not be the optimal time in general for that region, but am kind of stuck around that time period and just looking for the best option. I don't mind a little shower here and there, but just don't want it rainy all day. I have been to Lembeh before and other dive locations (Komodo, Irian Jaya, Wakitobi) in Indonesia seem to be really expensive. Paticularily the Flights to the remote locations. I have found some discounted airlines in Asia that have cheap travel to Malaysia/Phillipines so they seem to be a more reasonable destination. Any input is appreciated. Thanks, Brett
  6. I am looking at planning my next dive trip and looking at the following locations: Philippines (Puerto Galera area) Mabu/Sipidan Indonesia (Wakitobi or Komodo) Possibly Caribbean if value is worth it. Philippines is cheap (under $2000 for 10 days), but how good is it. Plus I see there are travel advisories, more for the southern islands but does anyone know if there is anything to worry about? Mabul/Sipidan seems a little more expensive but still managable. Is Wakitobi worth the price? I am looking for a destination with great macro and photo ops. I have been to Lembeh, and loved it. I think I would love any of the destinations listed but just looking for more insight. As for time of travel, kind of looking at May but that is rushing it and may push it off to the fall time frame. Thanks, Brett
  7. Hi, I am going to Belize in late april with some friends and am looking for suggestions as to where to stay. We are looking for some place that is rather cheap, but still nice. Most importantly only a couple of us will be diving while the others may be more interested in mainland tours? We are definitely interested in night life too. Any suggestions on dive operators and/or resorts would be greatly appreciated. Also, what are "must" do top water adventures in Belize? Thanks, Brett
  8. Hi, I am thinking about going to Komodo for my next dive trip. When is the best time to go and who are good dive operators to go with (cheap if possible)? Is there any other destinations I should be considering? I have been to galapagos, Lembeh, Fiji, and Bali. Thanks, Brett
  9. Thanks, a lot for all the help. This gives me some things to try. Brett Yokom
  10. Hi, I have a Nikon D70s with an Ikelite housing (iTTL capability). I also have a Nikonos SB-105 strob that I am trying to use with it. I am trying to use the stobe on manual mode (full / 1/4 poswer). The strobe fires but the timing seems to be a bit off. Its too close to notice by listening, but the camera just isn't picking up the strobe. Does anyone have any experience with this? I have tried setting the D70s to rear curtain sync, but it doesnt seem to help. Thanks, Brett Yokom
  11. Hi, I am selling a Fisheye 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Diagonal Fisheye Autofocus Lens for Nikon AF. I originally picked this up some months ago on wetpixel as part of a package, but realize I need the money more than the lens itself. I have not used it at all. It is in perfect condition. The previous owner had it for 6 months. New it sells for $550. I ram asking was $300 + shipping. Price is not really negotiable since that is a very fair price. If interested email me at sharkbaitND@hotmail.com. Thanks, Brett Yokom
  12. Thanks everyone for the input, this helps alot. Brett
  13. Hi, I am looking to buy a Ikelite (non-TTL) housing for Nikon D70s. I am also looking for a couple of Nikonos Sb 105 strobes if anyone is looking to rid of some. You can email me at sharkbaitND@hotmail.com Thanks, Brett
