How about the necessary equipment & boat transport during the course?

By now we expect our students to have their basic SCUBA diving equipment. In case you lack equipment for a particular specialty dive, we can lend it to you.

Boat transport is included in the course fee, however, some specialty dives of your choosing may require distant travels that will need additional transport fee (example: wreck diving).

All courses are taught in strict adherence to PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) standards and prices. We keep group sizes small to ensure you receive maximum benefit from your tuition. This also minimizes negative impact on the reefs. Our emphasis is on safety, fun and personal service within a relaxed and stress-free environment.

When planning activities, allow 18 hours after SCUBA diving before flying at 1000+ feet of altitude.
