Frequently Asked Questions:
Is it necessary to make an advanced reservation?
It is absolutely necessary to make an advanced reservation. All of our training and dive trips are booked with advanced reservations. This will assure that the day that you select is available and will prevent disappointment.This is similiar to why you would make any reservation. During Holiday periods reservations are a must.
Are gratuities included?
Tips for excellent service are graciously accepted. Tips are additional, they are not included in the dive rates. Our certified and knowledgable dive guides are in the water with you on each dive to make sure that you see the best of every site. They will set up your gear and assist you if needed. Think of them as you would your wait staff. 20% is a standard gratuity given, cash is preferred.
How long is each dive?
Most dive times are 40-50 minutes depending upon individual air consumption. (Maximum 50 minutes)
What if it has been years since I last dove?
With any diving gap of over two years we recommend a refresher class for several reasons. We want you to be comfortable when you dive in and we want you to be safe in the water. We begin reviewing skills in the pool in the morning, and that afternoon we will make 2 scuba dives with the instructor. You will be back in the saddle again feeling very comfortable.
What if I can't find my certification card?
If you are a PADI certified diver, we can look up your certification online using your birthdate and name. Usually we are able to also verify SSI and NAUI certifications as well.

Single Dives: A minimum pre-flight surface interval of 12 hours is suggested.
