As past satisfied customers Patrice and Rob are available to help you with any question you might have. [Zoom will stay open - but it might appear "dormant" between the two major topics]

    The meeting is preferably in person - for vaccinated members and guests. If you can - please show our guest the courtesy and show up in person

    I will post all details, signup forms and payment schedules on the trip pages - when ready - https://usadiveclub.org/event-4550899

    Normal Newsletter Entry (Nov 2021): It is time to go diving again

    At this time we have successfully completed our rescheduled 2021 program, the Belize Aggressor IV trip and the trip with Reef Divers/Clearly Cayman to Turks and Caicos Islands (originally LCBR) - a total of 41 divers. The next 3 (4) trips - 2022 and 2023 - are all very likely to take place as currently scheduled. First 3 trips are advertised in detail on the travel pages (details on Damai 1 will be available by 11/4 - please check occasionally or drop me an email and I will tell you when)

          https://usadiveclub.org/Overseas

    If you are part of the growing number of divers anxious to get out diving again please act fast. Because all the trips are on their second or third date the club do not hold any spots – so you can chose to buy later – before a cutoff deadline. That deadline is already in the past. We add spots - if or when we can - only after we sell them. Our operators have suffered a lot of lost business and are eager to ensure that when activities open up their boats and resorts are as full as possible. Hence they do not wait for us – all spot are open for sale to anybody who wants to buy on a first come basis.

    Questions – please reach out to me or the trip leads:

    Upcoming trips 2022:

    • Fiji, Volivoli, May 10-17, 2022 – Fiji’s newest land based resort –– There are spots available at different prices - Because of Covid-19 we are still selling at 2020 prices

    • Cayman Aggressor V, July 9-16, 2022  - Sold out - waitlist only

    ================

    Upcoming trips 2023:

    • Potential Land based trip, 2022H2 (say August or October). We will likely go to DEMA, buy a "cheap" trip - with direct airfare from FLL (or MIA) - advertise for sale in January or February. If you have a place in mind where you want to go diving please reach out to me

    • Belize Aggressor, July 24-31, 2021  - Sold out - wait list only  
    • Little Cayman Beach Resort, Sep 11-18, 2021 (Trip Lead: Ronnie) - see details below*
    • Fiji, Volivoli, May 10-17, 2022 – Fiji – is the topic of the presentation for June 3!
      • Fiji’s newest land based resort –– There are spots available at different prices
    • Solomon Islands: Bilikiki live aboard, May 17-27, 2022 – please act fast – there might be one last (male) spot left…

    Little Cayman Beach Resort, Sep 11-18:

    At this time we are holding three Ocean View rooms with King beds – good for couples or close friends - or it could be a Single Supplement (a little pricey, though).

    Option – Early June – is commitment time – holding unsold rooms or airfare after that date will now trigger cancellation fees. We will drop the two rooms if not sold, as well as any excess airfare. Anyway when other groups drop their excess inventory there is a chance that we can get other rooms that are a better fit for what you want… If you are interested, please talk to Ronnie about getting on a waitlist. If you use Zelle-pay, no action required. If you rely on paper checks please mail Ronnie a $400 retainer. We promise we will not cash the checks unless you get something you want
