Frequently Asked QuestionsBefore contacting us, please browse our FAQ.
How old do you have to be in order to dive?
You have to be at least 10 years old to dive, be comfortable in the water, and be able to carry 30 pounds on your back.
Will I experience motion sickness on the boat?
Seasickness affects everyone differently. If you’ve never been on the ocean, it’s probably a good idea to take some form of motion sickness remedy such as Dramamine or Bonine the night before and morning of your dive trip. Be sure to talk to the Staff to get more information or your doctor before you go diving if you have trouble with motion sickness.
What are the rules for flying on a commercial airline and scuba diving?
You cannot not fly for at least 18 hours after your last dive however the recommended time is 24 hours. After you get off the plane, you can dive immediately.
Can non-divers come along for the ride on the boat?
A seat on the boat is $55.00. If someone would like to snorkel or just come along for the ride, all gear is included in that price.
How far in advance should I make a reservation?
Ideally, dive reservations should be made at least THREE days in advance, however we do take reservations as short as 12 hours prior to the dive charter and if space is available, we are more than happy to accommodate your diving needs.
Can I cancel my reservation?
We have a 24 hour cancellation policy for a full refund. Please plan and reserve your dive schedules accordingly. Cancellation or changes made less than 24 hours in advance will incur all charges.
How many divers are on the dive boat?
Our custom 25′ Force dive boat “Submariner” is Coast Guard Certified to safely transport 12 divers per trip however we usually take no more than 10. Our custom 39′ Force the “Snoopy V” is Coast Guard Certified for up to 28 people, but no more than 16 divers are typically on board. We limit our dive groups to 6 certified divers or 4 beginners per instructor and specialize in small groups and personal attention.
