  • If you need us to fill your tanks prior to the first dive please advise of this at least 24 hours prior to your arrival so that we can plan our departure accordingly.
  • If you choose to bring your own tanks, please bring any adapters and o-rings needed to fill the tanks as we do not supply adapters.
  • All divers will be required to sign a release of liability form without modification(s). No divers will be taken offshore without an original signed release.

Medical conditions MUST have an original Doctor’s clearance in writing on the letterhead stating that the Doctor understands the consequences of diving with the diver’s specific medical condition, and that the diver is medically fit to dive.
