Dive Log: Roatan July 2017

Turquoise Bay Dive Resort is located in the East End on Roatan's north shore and it is the only dive resort in this lush and remote area of the island.  This location provides divers with the opportunity to dive uncrowded and pristine sites.  We arrived at this secluded and quiet resort down a long driveway and got our first glimpse of the hotel set in its own protected bay with a spectacular view. The first few things we noticed included the lush tropical foliage and smell of flowers.  Soon after that our eyes were drawn to the view of the beautiful turquoise bay just steps away.  The wa...

Dive Log: Indonesia June 2017

Our long awaited “Passport to Paradise” was a unique diving experience which allowed our group of 16 Lone Star Scuba divers to explore three distinct Indonesian diving destinations. All in one trip -- Manado Bay/Bunaken Marine Park, Lembeh Strait and Bangka Island. Our travels took us to North Sulawesi, Indonesia, which is a diver’s paradise situated in the heart of the coral triangle. This area contains 500 species of coral and more than 3,000 species of fish many of which are not found in the Caribbean. Manado, Bunaken, Lembeh and Bangka are home to some of the best dive sites and ...

Dive Log: Cozumel November 2016

The Anita Dive Boat in Cozumel
One of the greatest things available to divers that live in the DFW area is the close proximity to an International airport. Most of the Caribbean islands and the Gulf of Mexico are just a few hours of flight time. An amazing example of this is the Island of Cozumel. There are myriad dive locations with plenty of capable dive boats willing to take your group on adventure once you get there. As soon as your flight begins the final decent over the island it is easy to become engrossed in the relaxing atmosphere. The light and dark blue waters collide as you begin to settle between t...

Dive Log: Flower Gardens September 2015

Manta Flower Gardens
On our very first dive from the M/V Fling, one hundred miles out at sea, we were greeted by this manta. It stuck around, circling and swimming up to us through the dive into our second dive after hanging out by the boat during our surface interval. Throughout the seven dives we also saw sharks, turtles, eels and an abundance of fish. The first day of diving started at sunrise at the Flower Gardens East Bank with two dives there. Then we ventured over to an oil rig to dive under the platform. At the rig the coral grows over the supports and is teeming with tiny little creatures. Dive f...

Dive Log Experience Coming Soon

One of the questions we hear the most at Lone Star Scuba is "Have you been to...?", followed by "What dive operator did you like?", "Where did you stay?", "Know any good restaurants?" and "How was the diving?". So we decided to add a section to our website where our staff and instructors can provide information about our dive journeys to help answer some of these questions. As we travel and gather information we will share it here.
