With much thanks to everyone who gave us input when I asked here on the Doxa board, we're heading off on our Caribbean cruise in a week.
We had to decide if we were going to go snorkeling in Grand Cayman (which would have included Stingray City) or if we were going to go all out with the "resort style" scuba diving.
We chose the scuba diving. My wife and 12 year old daughter are both very comfortable with snorkeling and we have a snorkel tour planned in Cozumel. But the first time scuba dive in a maximum of 40 feet with close supervision is just too much of a temptation to pass up. Everyone says the diving is terrific in the Cayman Islands and this will most probably be the only time in our lives that we're there.
I've always wanted to get certified in scuba but the timing was never right. If our daughter really enjoys it, maybe she'll want to get certified with me at a later time.
I'm very psyched about getting an underwater photo of me with a regular in my mouth, a tank on my back, and my Doxa Sub300T Professional re-issue on my wrist!
Is it crazy that I'm planning the whole thing just to get that photo? Of course, we'll all enjoy the diving too.
Our stops are Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Belize, and Isla Roatan. We have have excursions already planned for the first two stops, but we're going to wait until we are on the ship and can talk to the cruise director or others and get advise on what to do during the last two stops.
We're very excited. This is the second cruise for my wife and I (the first and only one was Royal Caribbean 14 years ago on our honeymoon) and it's the first for our daughter.
Here's what we'll be wearing, my wife's NOS Ernest Borel (Syncron owned) and my Doxa:
