According to guests, the dive boat sank overnight in rough seas.

I've seen pictures. I think they converted the dive boat into a submarine ride.

I have asked resort management for information. Still waiting on a reply.

Thanks Denny, let us know if we should even bother packing dive gear or not.

It's supposed to be going out tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. I didn't hear that from management, but from someone there now. They will report back tomorrow.

Maybe they're renaming her the Jolly Mermaid....? In all seriousness, that aged boat is a pig. Like pushing a brick thru the water. The Performance boat was less convenient for us divers, but a whole lot more sleek.

People at Hedo are still diving--they used another boat.

The Jolly Mermaid. The catamaran that got wrecked onshore at Point Village.

Doug, I remember that! Wow that was a minute ago.

We have been going out on the Snorkel boat. 85 hp motor, and it won't take rough seas well. Limiting capacity to 8-10 divers per dive.

However, we are thrilled to be diving, so we'll do what we gotta do.
