We meet at the dive shop at 8am for the morning trip and 1pm for the afternoon trip to complete necessary paperwork, equipment set up and leave by 9AM. The boat is back by 1pm, and heads back out at 2pm for the second trip.
A few things that would be handy to have on the boat are:

If you don’t have these items we do sell them in the shop.
All dive trips include a complimentary hot snack, cold juice, coffee, drinking water and a hot towel to refresh after each dive.

We have over 25 sets of AQUALUNG/APEKS/SUUNTO rental equipment meaning we can also accommodate larger groups. We also cater for the smallest and largest of divers.
What we do very well is customer service. We take extra care to ensure all our guests enjoy their stay with us.
