Dive with a Best-Selling Author. John Chatterton, the main diver in that best-selling book, Shadow Divers, frequently teaches advanced wreck diving at the South Florida Dive Headquarters in Pompano Beach, FL, and Larry A. Malato (Woodinville, WA) and his wife took the classes there in October. "The captains are very competent, and the crew was helpful and respectful. They are tech-savvy and put us on good wrecks despite some brisk currents. Timing currents was not an option, as this is an advanced course and negotiation of currents is inherent in technical wreck diving. This area is rich in wrecks at recreational, as well as technical, depths, and to have a tech-savvy boat operation is a real find." ( www.johnchatterton.com; www.southfloridadiving.com )

Stop the Music! Nothing spoils a good dive vacation more than a little unwanted night music, as Marilyn Walker (Castro Valley, CA) reports of her trip last month to Kasawari Lembeh Lodge in Indonesia. She says she was disturbed by at all hours by loud music emanating from fishermen's homes separated from the small resort only by a cinder block wall. "The fishermen have concert-sized speakers that blast music at all hours of the day and night. The resort provides ear plugs . . . The resort itself generates noise, too, from the air compressor and the power generator. Most resorts keep these noisemakers some distance from the sleeping rooms, but this one is too small for that. The whole package was intolerable. Unfortunately, having pre-paid for the room and the diving, I lost my money. There are no refunds for cancellations. I moved to Kungkungan Bay Resort, which is distant from the local village, and where I enjoyed the peaceful environment and good diving." ( http://divekbr.com )...
