    TDF dive trip reports - a researchable facility - Discussion Thread

    Some very informative travel reports on here. It is my idea that I go through the reports over the winter and collate them into researchable country groups in separate threads. Discussed this with Mal and he agrees. Maybe make them sticky at the top of this Trip report forum. Watch this space :-)

    Reports 'written by divers for divers' . Now where have I heard that?

    FWIW, I suggest you break it up a little more - rest of the world would classify the Caribbean in the same group as Indonesia! So perhaps add Caribbean Sea, Coral Triangle and Australia, and Pacific instead of Rest Of The World? Maybe change Maldives to Indian Ocean too?

    Many thanks, Will do.

    Am working my way through UK and the Med at the moment. With Mal's permission hope they will be online sometime next week.

    Then start working on the rest which are now:

    Atlantic
    Middle East
    Maldives
    Caribbean
    Coral Triangle and Australia
    Pacific


    maybe add Americas?

    Re "Americas", they should be already included in the above? That said, do you have any reports that don't fit into the above categories or are in places that people wouldn't think belong to the categories (California springs to mind)?

    Sounds like a really good idea - thanks for doing this. As you say "by divers for divers"! Just one thought - maybe the Galapagos would deserve a special section too as it is on so many folks' bucket list. Not sure if there would be enough posts yet tho' Also Southern Africa - picking up the sardine run etc and Mozambique

    It's a shame that Photobucket went stupid. Took the guts out of a lot of trip reports.

    I could be biased but I think Ireland should be included, after all it is the home of some world class diving

    Don't know if it is feasible, but it would be cool to have other useful links on the stickies - such as info on good/bad times of year to go (I seem to spend half my planning for dive holidays looking at that!)

    Attempting to keep this simple so I am working on a UK page United Kingdom including Southern Ireland. Hope this is acceptable.

    Remember all I am working on reports to TDF and only them.

    Really appreciate the feed back. Very keen to get the UK page online first.

    Many thanks all.
