Dive Policy

Dive own profile yes
Enforced diving restrictions The crew asked that you not go deeper than 110ft (except the Blue Hole - 130ft). They stress buddy diving and expect it. They are good stewards of the reef and help you to learn how to stay off of it if you need help. I never felt limited or prevented from diving the way I wanted to.
Liveaboard? yes Nitrox Available? yes

At first I thought I didn't want anything to do with it, but after you get into the grove, it's very nice to have someone put on your fins and then take them off before you get out of the water. The crew accommodated several of the passengers request to ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here
