PADI Boat Diver

Boat Diving is so easy and fun, once you start diving from a boat you will want to do it again and again. Divers will participate in our charter boat trips that we offer throughout the year just for this exact reason....EASY and FUN. Most of the BEST DIVE SITES are reached by boat, less energy expanded, live boat pick-up. Many great dives start from the deck of a boat.

Why dive from a boat?

  1. Dive in areas you cannot dive from shore.
  2. Dive in clearer and calmer waters.
  3. Easier than shore diving.
  4. Less wear and tear on your equipment.
