A variety of different websites can help you with multi-city and stopover itineraries; my personal favourite is Skyscanner, as it also indexes "low cost airlines", and has many different search options.
This past Sunday we had a visit from Michael Barnette, founder of the Association of Underwater Explorers and prolific cave and wreck diver and writer to check out the Josie J. Marco, who was Tec certified by Monty earlier in the year, served as his guide and dive buddy on their 190ft profile. Here are a few highlights from the trip - taken and generously provided by Michael.

For Michael's article on Roatan Wrecks (he will be checking out El Aguila on Saturday), we have managed to secure the original footage of when the Josie J sank, courtesy of Mickey Charteris, author and photographer of the brand-new Caribbean Reef Life fish/creature ID book (more details on that as they come). We hope to be able to extract some viable stills from that footage for the article!
In other shop news, Marco (instructor) and Marco (DMT) had a slow day in the shop, so they decided to do an underwater cleanup of Half Moon Bay. On their expedition, they had a Spotted Sea Hare En. Great job, guys!
