As is standard in the travel and scuba industries, we most often receive either complimentary or reduced rates on products, travel, hotels, resorts and attractions. We make every attempt to be sure our posts are not influenced by this practice and that we remain objective. So unless we say, “I’ve had these fins for years” or “My sister sent me this camera for my birthday,” you can assume the product has been given to us at no cost. We are pleased that you take time to read our articles and reviews , but we cannot be responsible if you don’t have the same experience with a hotel, destination, attraction or piece of gear.
Disclosure of Material Connection: Some of the links on our pages or blog posts are “affiliate links.” This means that we will receive or have received some sort of compensation if you click on the link and/or purchase the item. Nevertheless we try very hard to only recommend products, services or destinations we personally use, have been to or fully believe will benefit our readers. We are disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
