We were lucky enough to make two trips to Grand Turk in 2008. Unfortunately, the second one was only one month after Hurricane Ike, which pretty much devastated the island. We were some of the first tourists back to the island, and the first ones to go out diving with Oasis Divers. The really big plus was that for the entire week, my son and I had Mackie all to ourselves!

We stayed at the Osprey Beach Hotel, which had definitely felt the effects of the hurricane, but did everything they could to make it a pleasant experience. When (not if) I go back again, I’ll be staying at Osprey, and diving with Oasis.

Pictures are available on Flickr here, and slideshow is below.

Cuba Diving

This will be the first of several dive photo postings as I get my photos organized. The family was in Cayo Guillermo Cuba in this past March, and as usual, I managed to sneak off diving most every morning. The diving itself was better than I expected, but the operation left quite a bit to be desired (which I did expect…).  Don’t get me wrong, the staff themselves were good, but there’s only so much you can do with that equipment and those business rules.
