- Divers must be able to speak, read, and understand English. Due to the important information given by the crew, this is necessary for safety.
- Divers with a rating below OW level such as scuba divers or JR open water divers limited to a 40′ dive depth are welcome to join the charter at the price listed for their level. The higher price is to ensure proper crew with more strict guiding limits.
- Certified divers who have not dived in over a year are strongly encouraged to take a refresher course in the pool before their dive day. We also offer an option of a private guide, which can serve as a great refresher option.

Age Requirements for PADI Students
Discover scuba students
Age 10 and up (Ages 10-14 require a private instructor)
JUNIOR open water divers
Kids 10-11 years old enrolled in an open water course require a bit more attention and we love to give them the attention they deserve. Our class for 10-11 year old divers will keep their depth restrictions in mind and allow the instructors to focus on their special needs and pace. Certified diver parents can dive with the student group if desired.
