Review: SeaLife DC800
If you want a reasonably priced underwater camera from one of the experts in the field, try the SeaLife DC800. It is a sleek, modern 8-megapixel camera that comes with a tough underwater case good for depths to 200 feet. SeaLife also offers single and dual external flashes. What sets SeaLife cameras apart is special underwater modes and settings that really bring out the beauty of that wonderful world down there. Read our comprehensive review of the DC800 and see many sample shots from a trip to Roatan, Honduras. -- Posted Tuesday, September 16, 2008 by chb

Reports from CoCo View resort on Roatan, Honduras
We're back from an awesome week of diving at CoCo View resort on the Honduran island of Roatan. Read all about it at Dive trip to Honduras!, First Ocean Dive, Prince Albert and green blood, Contemplations on a day off, Waves, surge, sharks and night dives, and Mary's Place. This was all written from the perspective of a fairly new diver, but CoCo View offers both shore and boat diving for all levels of scuba diving. You can reach fantastic walls and coral reefs from the resort's beach, and there's even a 140-foot wreck to peruse in 45-65 feet of water. And a DC3 right next to it. The picture to the left shows a swim-through of "Mary's Place," a wonderfully picturesque dive site. -- Posted Tuesday, September 9, 2008 by chb
