Comments Pacific Adventures is a dive boat operation owned and operated by Don Coleman and his family. The name of the boat is the Down Time. Don takes groups of 2-6 out for 2-3 tank boat dives on Saturday and Sunday.
2 tank dives are $85 and 3 tanks are $105. The boat accommodates 6 divers comfortably. Don is very safety conscious and the boat has all requisite safety equipment. There is a toilet on board and warm fresh water for rinsing self and equipment. Hot chocolate, warm cider, coffee and tea and water are available at all times. 2 different soups and hot dogs or pulled pork sandwiches and chips are typically served during surface intervals.
Entry is a giant stride off the back of the boat and reentry is also at the back. Take off fins and hand them up and climb up a very sturdy ladder. Typically cruise on the surface ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here
