READY TO START?

TRAVELLING WITH FRIENDS?

 

If you have friends who are certified divers they will be diving on the same boat. Also non-Divers can join our trips for 1500p.

 

IMPORTANT TO KNOW

 

We provide all you need for a safe and unforgettable experience. Beside being 12 years or older, being a motivated student and a reasonable good swimmer you only have to bring swim-wear, sun- and rain-protection. Water, snacks and lunch on board are provided. Let us know if you have a special diet or allergies. Don't bring valuables to a dive boat.  Diving with contact lenses is no problem. Find more FAQs here.

 

To check your fitness for diving you have to fill out a medical questionnaire. This will indicate if you have to see a physician prior taking a recreational scuba diving course.

 

No surprise: weather can effect our schedule. Do not make too tight travel plans: an extra day or two after your OW course can be very useful. Also keep in mind that you can not take a commercial flight for at least 18hours after your last dive. Flying prior diving is no risk.

 

If we have to cancel a trip due to weather conditions we will grant a refund accordingly.

Please check our Terms and conditions.
