    Do you need to be a diver to come on the trip?

    It depends on what trip you are looking at. Some trips are snorkel specific, some are dive. Please contact us, so we can further assist you.

     

    Do your tours include international airfare?

    Travelers arrive from all over the world to begin our tours and it is not possible to include international airfare in our prices

    Can you help arrange my travel visas?

    Requirements for travel visas vary widely depending on your nationality and your destination. We are unable to arrange visas on your behalf . If you do require a visa you can arrange them yourself or use the services of a travel agent or visa processing company.

     

    What are the age restrictions on your tours?

    To travel independently you must be at least 18 years of age. There are no upper age limits for most of our tours .

     

    I’m a single traveller, will I be charged a single supplement?

    Most of our trips do not have a single supplement. This means that the accommodation is on a twin share basis and, if you are traveling on your own, you will be sharing a room with another diver of the same sex.  Most of our tours have an optional single supplement, please ask us.

     

    Can I join a tour late or leave it early?

    It’s extremely difficult but not impossible to join a tour after it has begun. It is possible to leave a tour early however you will be responsible for your own arrangements from the moment you decide to leave the tour. You would also be responsible for all costs associated with joining a tour late or leaving one early. If you feel this may be necessary please contact us before you book your dive adventure. Your expedition cost will not change.

     

    Are airport transfers included?

    Most of our adventures do not include airport transfers and so we recommend you arrange a taxi on arrival (this is the most economical and efficient way of getting you to your hotel). If you would prefer a pre-arranged transfer these are usually available at an additional cost – please contact us for more information.

     

    Is tipping included and if not, how much should I budget?

    Tips are not included in the tour price and tipping is entirely at your discretion. We generally advise 10-15% of the trip price.
