To all our valued guests:
For your safety and the safety of our crew, these are some of the measures we have implemented on our vessel.
We’ve increased the frequency of disinfecting surfaces and high traffic areas between each dive, and hand sanitizer will be available to all of our guests.
Employees receive daily wellness checks, including temperature checks, to ensure they are healthy and symptom-free. If you or anyone in your group is experiencing symptoms, we will work directly with you to cancel or reschedule your charter.
Guests will have their temperature checked prior to boarding.
The Crew and guests are required to wear face coverings when above water.
The Crew will be wearing gloves when possible/appropriate.
Guests will stay at a safe 6-foot distance while waiting to board, boarding the vessel, on deck, entering the water, exiting the water, and departing the vessel.
After each trip the vessel is cleaned again and sanitized
Rental equipment will be disinfected with a CDC recommended and EPA-N list approved solution.
Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness and should stay at home.

Additionally, All employees have been given guidelines from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention which include; wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. For more info, please visit https://covid19info.ocgov.com/.
Capacity is currently limited to 8 guests on our 46ft Newton Dive Special.
This provides plenty of area for social distancing.
For now, we will only be taking certified divers.
Our diver to dive guide ratio will be 8:1, for the time being
The level of personal and hands-on service you've come to expect from us will be diverted in a new direction and focused on keeping you healthy above water. We've always focused on keeping you safe and showing you a good time while underwater - that will never change - we’ll just be doing things a bit different on the surface.
Guests will now set up their own personal equipment. We encourage guests that have not yet purchased their own equipment to take the plunge and use Covid19 as your excuse to complete your dive kit! Click here to find more reasons to take the plunge!
We are no longer able to store personal equipment. A complimentary tote will be provided for transport of your equipment to and from the boat when you are diving with us for multiple days.
We will set up the gear of those guests using our rental regulators and bcd's. The crew will wear gloves during this process.
Rental masks are not available. Divers must use own their own mask
Waivers are to be signed prior to arriving at the boat. Guests will use their personal devices to complete waivers. You must be able to present your dive card prior to boarding the vessel - physical or ecard.
Guests need to bring their own REUSABLE and full water bottle to limit your risk of using the communal water refill station.
