TRIPS

Some of us are strictly warm water divers. Some love the cold. Most are water temperature-agnostic. Whatever you prefer, the Marin Scuba Club promotes safe diving. Remember to plan your dive based on the conditions, be aware of your skills and equipment and stay with your buddy.

Banco Chinchorro Dive Trip, Mexican Mayan Riviera near the Belize border.  blwambach@comcast.net said:
“Fourteen club members visited Banco Chinchorro for the first time in October. The most exciting diving was the banc, a one-hour ride from Mahaual, Mexico. The wrecks on the outer side of the reef were the best that Barb Wambach has ever visited –– laying in 25-35 feet of clear water, abundant with sea live and extremely colorful. The banc also featured large animals including leatherback turtle, eagle rays, stingrays, nurse sharks and a few reef sharks.

“Near the center of the banc, lies a mangrove which is home to approximately 500 American crocodiles. While we did not swim with them, we did get very close. The coral reef was very healthy and we enjoyed large schools of sardines, blue fish and a small school of tuna. We do plan to go back.”
