  Dive & Snorkel Trips: GENERAL INFORMATION

Snorkeling:
Our one day snorkel trips costs $95.00 per person which includes all rental gear snorkeling from a boat in the John Pennekamp Marine Sanctuary.  You will get to snorkel at two different reef locations on the one trip. There is a captain and crew on board at all times to supervise the diving and snorkeling activities from the boat.  Wet suits, when needed, are $12 additional. We recommend wet suits from October 1st until May 15th.

Children 6-15 are welcome when accompanied by a parent or guardian.  Children 16-18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian OR obtain written permission prior to the trip.  Sorry, no children under 6 are allowed on any of the boats.  Total trip duration including ground transportation to and from Key Largo is 10:30am to 7pm


Scuba Diving (for certified divers):
Two tank / two location dives including tanks and weights are $90 in Miami / $110 in Key Largo. We offer a full line of rental gear which can be added to your reservation when booking.  Spiegel Grove trips and night dives are $5 additional.  Children 10 to 15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  Children 16-17 must be accompanied by a parent/ guardian OR obtain written permission.

Guides:
All of our dive trips are self led.  Group guides and private guides are available for a fee on almost every trip that we offer.  If you are a solo diver you will be buddied up with another diver(s) unless you hire a guide.  On all dives that are deeper than 100', you either need to sign up with a buddy or call to check with us that there will be a buddy available to dive with you prior to booking. You will also be required to have or rent a dive computer on all dives deeper than 100'. We do not allow solo diving.

Transportation: Key Largo
We offer free round trip transportation from our store in South Beach to the boat location in Key Largo. Transportation is first come first served and must be requested at the time of your reservation. Many people choose to drive themselves as not to be in a rush coming back home. There are many great bars and restaurants in the area where the boats come back in.  We will provide you with directions at check in.  Drive time to Key Largo is approx. 1hr 20min. 

Transportation: Miami Beach:
We will provide transportation to the boat at the Miami Beach Marina for most trips when marked available. We do not offer transportation to dive trips that are marked "check in at boat."  On those trips we will arrange to have your equipment on the boat or you can pick it up at the shop the day before.  The boat in Miami Beach is located only 10 blocks from the dive shop.

Food/Beverages:
All our boats have a large cooler with ice for you to store your food and drinks in and fresh drinking water. Most the boats have pretzels or fresh fruit but it is best to bring your own food to be sure.  When you ride with us to Key Largo, we stop at a Subway sandwich shop to grab lunch.  Next door to this Subway is a Dunkin Donuts, a mini mart and Mc Donald's if your prefer.  Most customers tend to get a large sandwich and eat half there and take the other half to the boat for later.

You may bring and consume alcoholic beverages if you are over 21 and have finished diving or snorkeling for the day.  You will not be allowed back in the water after drinking alcohol.

Multiple Dive Discounts:
Pre-pay for 5 trips (10 dives) and save 15% or 10 trips (20 dives) and save 20%.  Multiple dive packages are non refundable or transferable and must be used in one year.  Florida sales tax is 7% and will be added to all charters, classes and sales.  Night Dives and Spiegel Grove trips have a $10 supplement. These discounts are not in conjunction with the 5% on line discount and must be reserved by calling the store.

Private Charters:
Private charters are available 7 days a week.  A half day (4 hours) private charter includes your own boat, captain and crew.  Gear, guides and instruction if needed are additional.  Charters range from $950 to $1,500 plus gear and equipment depending on the day of the week and size of the boat.


 Cancellation Policy
