We lead ocean-loving dive groups to exotic dive locations all over the planet. Our love of adventure travel has brought thousands of divers around the globe and provided bucket list diving experiences at the best diving locations in the world!

We offer dive adventures for everyone: from simple “getting your feet wet” locations such as Cozumel and Baja, to exotic locations for the experienced world traveler such as the Galapagos, Micronesia, South East Asia and Africa. Depending on the location, adventures may be on luxury live-aboard dive yachts or at beautiful island resorts. Rest assured, we plan our trips during the best time of year and with the best dive operators.
Great dive destinations often coincide with wonderful land-based and cultural experiences and we build-in optional side trips to maximize your time abroad. African safaris, Amazon river cruises, jungle treks in Borneo, or surfing side trips in Fiji are examples of extensions that we organize to keep the adventure going.

All life on our planet revolves around the ocean; whether you live on the coast or in the mountains. Oceans influence our lives through the weather and the air we breath: the oceans scrub carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, currents and upwelling events significantly affect global temperatures. They provide the basis of life on earth. 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water–so if you want to really explore our planet, you have to get certified and see whats under the surface!
The diversity that occurs across our planet provides the adventurer plenty of reasons to keep traveling around the world. Diverse ecosystems support many types of flora and fauna, and it is these interesting creatures and our interaction with them that can be so special. Diving, whether it is SCUBA or free-diving, gives people the opportunity to seek out these interactions and experience the treats our oceans offer.
Words alone cannot describe the feelings one has while swimming beside a whale shark, hearing a humpback whales song resonate in your chest, seeing sunlight filter amber through the kelp forest. As a large shark swims by, you have to see it and be with it underwater to make the hair on your neck stands on end; it’s not the same from the surface. Our passion is the ocean, and we want to help people experience all that our underwater world offers. Contact us with questions or to sign up for one of our exciting dive trips.

How do I reserve a space? When are payments due?
Either fill out our Contact Us Form or send an email to [email protected] with your request. Deposits can be made via personal check, Zelle, Venmo, or with a credit card.
A deposit is necessary to reserve your spot. Payments are made at varying intervals over the months before the trip. Each trip typically has a unique deposit and payment schedule.
Will I see sharks?
We hope so! Because sharks are beautiful, graceful animals many of our trips are designed to see sharks. Bill Finstad did his Master Thesis on the circadian rhythm of sharks, and has appeared in several documentaries during his studies on blue sharks. With a total of 370 species of shark, only seven are known to have attacked humans: Bull, Tiger, Oceanic White Tip, Great White, Blue, Galapagos and Mako. Of all reported attacks only 1% are fatal. Usually, a shark attack is the result of mistaken identity – the shark believing a swimmer, diver or surfer is natural prey, such as a turtle or seal – and that’s why, often after one bite, the victim is rejected by the shark. More people die every year from bee stings, dog bites, falling coconuts and lightening strikes.
Will I need any vaccinations for travel?
Recommended vaccines protect travelers from illnesses present in other parts of the world. Which vaccinations you need depends on a number of factors including your destination, whether you will be spending time in rural areas, the season of the year you are traveling, your age, health status, and previous immunizations. To find out which vaccinations are recommended, search the region you will visit on the website: http://www.cdc.gov/travel/destinat.htm
Do you do private charters or trips?
YES! We are only limited by our imagination. Would you like to do a private sailing catamaran charter with diving involved? Dan has a USCG 50Ton License with a sailing endorsement and over 20,000 nautical miles of ocean sailing experience. New Caledonia, French Polynesia, Baja or ?- Dan can be your private Captain and can arrange some incredible diving to supplement the adventure.
