Previous Destinations:

2018 - St. Lucia - The island was as beautiful above the water as it was below the water and we got to enjoy it all.  Tucked away in the secluded Marigot Bay we enjoyed the serenity of island life at the Marigot Beach Club and Dive Resort.  And the diving along the coast, in site of the Pitons, was spectacular. It is a place that we could return to and enjoy multiple times and hopefully we will do so.

2017 - Little Cayman - Had to make a trip back to one of our favorite locations and it did not disappoint.  Lots of healthy corals with lots of fish life - turtles, eagle rays, banded jawfish, spotted drumfish, file fish, channel crabs and lobsters - and some fun swim throughs.  Bloody bay wall is a diver's paradise on the north side and some great shallow dives on the south side.  Enjoyed a presentation about the endemic rock iguanas that can be seen around the resort.  Little Cayman Beach Club is a great resort with great food and a phenomenal staff.  Thanks to Romel and Antony with the rest of the Reef Divers staff for a great week of diving.

2016 - St. Eustatius - We finished our tour of the "islands kissed by the clouds" in Statia and even participated in their annual Statia-America Day celebrations. The diving was great including lots of big anchors, lobsters, octopuses and many other things. The dive staff from Scubaqua were outstanding, the Gin House Hotel beautiful and comfortable and the food absolutely great. We may have to go back sometime soon.

2015 - Saba - Continuing the quest for new Caribbean Islands for the group to explore we moved up the island chain to the small mountianous island of Saba.  Some legendary diving here where the deep water pinnacles reach up close to the surface with their plentiful and large inhabitants.  Quite a change staying halfway up the mountain instead of down on the beach but spectacular views from there not to mention from the volcano crater rim.

2014 - St. Kitts - Headed the opposite direction from last year going east down the Caribbean chain of islands.  First stop, the island of St. Kitts. We had a couple of great adventures we don't often get to do on a Caribbean dive trip - hunt for lobsters (had them for lunch as soon as we got back from the morning dive) and killing lionfish (feeding them to eels and sharks).

2013 - Little Cayman - We've been planning to get to this destination for a long time.  It was well worth the wait.  Great diving, a beautiful resort and tremendous food.

2012 - St. Thomas, USVI - A Caribbean dive trip without leaving the US!  This unique trip allowed us to dive in the Atlantic Ocean as well as the Caribbean Sea with the added feature of sailing aboard Jamann.  Combine all of that with a stay at an all inclusive resort and you get one GREAT vacation.

2011 - Bonaire - There's a reason why we've gone back to Bonaire for our fourth time and the reason is that we always have a great time in Bonaire, especially at Captain Don's Habitat - this trip was certainly one of the best!  Great diving, beautiful accommodations, fantastic food and fantastic weather - indeed a great trip.

2010 - Utila - This time it was a race between us and Hurricane Richard but we made it to Utila literally just before the hurricane brushed by.  Lost one day of diving - just part of the adventure.  Some great diving but alas - no whale sharks!  But still a great week at the Laguna Beach Resort.

2009 - Cozumel - We had to dodge yet another hurricane but only lost one day of diving. Then the rest of the vacation exceeded expectations with some of our best dives at a really great resort. 

2008 - The British Virgin Islands - A unique and fabulous trip diving the reefs and sailing on Jamann (check out www.JamannSailingAdventures.com to find out what we are up to now).

2007 - Roatan - Another great trip to Coco View.

2006 - Fiji - The adventure of a lifetime!  It took us a while to get there but what a dream trip on  a secluded private island with the whole resort just for our group. Fijian hospitality is second to none and the diving was great, too!

2005 - Cayman Brac - In between the hurricanes a GREAT adventure!

2004 - Roatan - Best shore diving ever!!!!!  Staying at Coco View is the best way to experience Roatan.

2003 - Grand Turk - To the wall every time - even from the shore!

2002 - Belize - Turtles, rays, SHARKS and more!

2001 - Bonaire - Sorry!  Never got around to writing this one up - too busy planning Belize!

2000 - Cabo San Lucas - A trek to the land of Mr. Big - but where was he?  #$%&

            power boats!!

1999 - Dominica - The Nature Island and home of Kubuli Beer!!

          Cozumel - Drifting through the land of Coronas and Jose Cuervo!

1998 - Grand Cayman - Hold on to your hat and keep the beer cold!  Hurricane Mitch is coming to town.
