The Haiti earthquake is a tragedy we can not ignore. We believe most of you have already contributed what you could, but if not please do so. Every penny you can spare will help those in need! And please remember that we also live in an area with earthquakes. Is your emergency plan ready if the big one hits us?

Luggage fees went up again.
In January and February most airlines raised their fees for luggage. A summary is on our Before the Trip page. Almost all the airline charge around $25 for the 1st bag and $35 for the 2nd bag within United States. However fees when flying to the Caribbean are different with each airline. Those flying to Asia still get 2 free checked bags. For European flights, airlines now charge for the 2nd checked bag. The airlines also charge additional fees if not checking in on line. It is time to think how you can cut down what you take unless you want to pay extra $$ on your luggage.

Aggressor Fleet and Peter Hughes' Buddy weeks
The Aggressor's "Bring your friend weeks" and Peter Hughes' "Buddy Week" both give 2nd person 50% off. Their dates for 2010 are posted on our Specials web page. These weeks will sell out fast; so please call us to book and take advantage of the great prices!

Please feel free to write a review on us or any resorts you have visited through us. Hopefully positive one, but your reviews are important for us to improve our business and will be a great resource for your fellow divers.

We are going to post the Last minute Specials on our Facebook as they come in. This will better inform you in timely manner. Hope you can take advantage on some of the great savings.
