Boracay, Here I Come

Next Wednesday, I am off to Boracay. We are staying here:

Of course, I can't go to the beach without diving. I have been in touch with Blue Mango about doing some diving. I was attracted to their site by this page, which talks about DIR diving. I spoke to Dustin at Blue Mango, who told me that they dive to 50m using 50% and 100% for deco. However, helium can't be found on the island so I guess they use air for backgas.

I'd love to do some tech diving but I'm not doing deep air. Instead, I am sticking strictly to recreational depths. In fact, I am bringing only my single tank reg set, wetsuit and other personal items as they rent backplates and wings.

Actually, they do pretty well in the tecrec courses and Dustin is just about the safest dive instructor I've run across out here. I need to get off my own rump and get those courses done myself.

Either way, he'll certainly take care of ya when you arrive.
