A jet boat whisking divers 60 miles out to sea to dive, where one fins with swordfish, mola molas and loggerhead turtles. A private island with the world's top chefs developing dishes, and Sir Richard Branson subsidizing your stay.

I sure had fun writing the special April 1 issue of Undercurrent, and most of our readers (not all, mind you) had just as much fun reading it. A few even remembered a similar mind-heist I pulled off a few years back. Here is what a few had to say about this year's missive.

"Congratulations on the Petit Mustique article. You almost had me until I realized it was April 1 and you never travel as Mr. Davison. I have been a subscriber for 30 years. Keep up the great work!" -- William King

"My bags were packed. That was going to be my retirement trip!" -- Bob Gerzoff

"Davison, you are SO off my Christmas card list!" -- Mark Kimmey

"That was a cruel joke. I had my phone in my hand ready to call and make a reservation. Shame on you for playing with our diver minds like that. It sounded like the Oasis of diving!" -- Jeremy Anschel...
