    ... to swim in to the beach at this point, and start worrying about where Sam and Catherine were. Pablo instructed the rest of us to swim in to the beach and he'd find Sam and Catherine. We were obedient students, but only one of us managed to emerge out of the water with a shred of dignity (Dan). I swam fastest, and found myself stuck like a billowing seaweed, caught in the lapping waves at the shore's incline. With all the scuba equipment, I was too ungainly to gracefully stand ...

    Jeff said he needed to stop and get some cash, so we pulled into a ...

    ... 5 devil rays Martin saw together under the water. But if I thought this was going to be the worst dive I was about to be very mistaken. I was already slightly apprehensive about this dive because there was so much to remember. I had to tie all three of the knots I had been desperately practicing, do a circular search pattern, do a u pattern using a compass, tie an object to a lift bag, inflate the lift bag and then swim it to the surface. Did I mention this is all going to be ...
