Comments The team on the dive boat is extremely attentive to your needs. Your gear is brought aboard and set up for you. Travel time to the dive sites is minimal (most within 20 minutes). Dive masters are in the water with you unless you prefer to go off on your own. There are wreck/ deep dives in the morning and more shallow dives in the afternoon. Spearfishing is permitted (if you are properly trained) but non-"speros" should not be fearful as they are not grouped with those with spear guns.
