One of the biggest decisions you’ll make in planning a dive trip is who to dive with. This one choice can make or break your trip. If you dive every day like we did you’ll be spending a lot of time with your choice, 5-6 hours a day, so you really need to get this right. There are, Read More

We had an amazing week in Cozumel! We learned everything we needed to while fitting in plenty of diving and relaxation. The diving was tremendous! We just don’t have diving like that in the keys. I loved the topography, depths (the keys are very shallow) and the option for a fast drift.

The diving in Cozumel was spectacular! Every site we visited was in great condition with visibility well over 100ft every day. I loved the topography there too. I’ll never get tired of the swim throughs, sweeping walls & gorgeous pinnacles all covered in colorful life. We live in the Florida Keys and we just don’t have diving like that here., Read More

I always say “everywhere has something and no where has everything” and it’s remained true so far in my life. I miss something about everywhere I’ve lived. When I left New England for coastal Virginia I missed mountains, hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing (although not winter) and the sound of natural running water. In, Read More

Season 3 of Bloodline will be out this Friday and we can’t wait to see what the Rayburn family will get into next! We’ve been rewatching seasons 1 & 2 to get ready for it and now that we’ve been here a while we recognize just about everywhere they’re filming. I guess that’s what happens when, Read More

Could we be happy living in Cozumel? I think the answer is yes and that’s what we’ll be trying to figure out while we’re there. We’re leaving for Cozumel in just a few days so of course we have a hit list of things we want to accomplish there. It’s also our first vacation in a, Read More

We haven’t been on an exploratory trip in a long time, 18 months to be exact. It turns out that selling all of your stuff and moving to the Florida Keys eats up a lot of vacation time. We’re both itching to go on an adventure, get away for a bit, and check out, Read More

There are times in life when seemingly unimportant decisions lead to huge life changes, changes you couldn’t have anticipated in a million years. Changes that are totally disconnected from the event that started the ball rolling. Our move to the Keys is a great example of this…

One of the things I love most about living in the Keys is how everything revolves around the water. Diving, paddling, snorkeling, boating or fishing – almost everyone here has something to do with the water. I also love being surrounded by like-minded people & the opportunity to get involved in so many diving, Read More

There are no beaches in the Keys! People are always surprised when I tell them this but the Keys are made of coral and rock, hence the great diving and complete lack of beaches. There are a few man-made ones and a few small natural ones but I guarantee you they’re not what you, Read More
