Posted ImageOh My.... SINGLE'S WEEK Halloween in Cozumel... Don't Let the Holiday "SPOOK YA"...come DIVE & HAVE FUN! Join us for 3, 4, 5, or 7 days in Cozumel Oct 28 - Nov 1st, 2009 with the 28th and 1st as travel days…OR ANY OTHER DAYS...YOU CHOOSE...BUILD YOUR OWN 3, 4, 5, 7 Day Package!!!* <I>

*The base pkg is 4 Nites/ 3 Days for $744 (less than $60 more than 2008 and 2009 pricing AND includes 3 dives a day AND food AND all drinks) which SingleDivers.com guarantees a d/o same sex roommate for these days. If you add days to your custom pkg SD.com will help you find roommates for those extra days but can not guarantee a d/o rate nor a same gender roomie. As you sign up for the trip let us know the number of days you want so others can join for the same timeframes. This will facilitate d/o rates for as many people and days as possible!

Posted Image Join in all the Halloween fun in Cozumel for either 2, 3, or up to 5 full days of fabulous diving (or more if you want it). You asked for it...Casa Del Mar responded AGAIN with a FANTASTIC package and HALLOWEEN SINGLE'S WEEK so get ready for a great time!

Diving in Cozumel is truly recovering at an extremely fast rate. The soft sponges are coming back quickly and with all the changes to the terrain the animals are easier to see! The island is ready for tourists and Cozumel offers a good bargain for those wanting excellent Caribbean diving for a good price and relative ease of getting there! And the deeper sites have rebounded even quicker so Cozumel still is one of the Gem's of the Caribbean!

Halloween in Cozumel, All Inclusive, D/O, CREATE YOUR OWN PACKAGE for $744 (less than $60 over 2008 and 2009 pricing AND includes 3 dives a day AND meals AND all drinks!!!) d/o plus air to Cozumel and (see us for bulk and charter air rates via FunJet, etc) you'll have one last chance to dive world renown Cozumel and celebrate 'all hallow's eve aka Halloween in a rockin' Single's Week! The 'base' trip will be set up as a 4 nite 3 day pkg for $744 but you can build on that package adding days as desired. SingleDivers.com will guarantee a same sex roommate for the base pkg of 4nites/3days for $744 Oct 28th to Nov 1st and help you find roommates for any add'l days that you wish to stay. Non-Diver Pricing: SEE BELOW!
NOTE: Many of you will customize your trip the way YOU want it and each pkg will contain diving, hotel, be all inclusive and other free perks as listed. If you wish to add add'l dives let us help you make those arrangements. Price is $60 for each extra day of hotel in Cozumel d/o or $120 s/o and $60 for each extra day of 2 tank am diving. Extra third dive is $30 per day (minimum of 5 people) and Nitrox is $10 per tank. (See below for FULL pricing & What is Included and Not Included.) Posted Image

Build Your Own Package *: (Note the Official Base Package is 4 nites 3 days from Oct 28 to Nov 1 Diving Oct 29th, 30, 31st)

3 nites 2 days diving 3 dives a day + meals + drinks: $573 d/o $627 s/o - Non-Diver: $363
4 nites 3 days diving 3 dives a day + meals + drinks : $744 d/o $899 s/o - Official Base Pkg Oct 28 to Nov 1st (travel days 28th and 1st). This pkg will guarantee a same sex roommate and d/o for every night of the trip! Non-Diver: $414

7 nites 5 days diving 3 dives a day + meals + drinks: $1138 d/o $1439 s/o Non-Diver: $660
* See below for what is included and not included.

* Since people have different needs and wants for this trip i.e. some want a long weekend and others want a week to justify the airfare, I have worked a deal out with the resort where you can "Build Your Own Package" for this trip. We can use "PRIME DATES" as the base package and we will guarantee a same gender roommate for the base package of 4 nites 3 days diving and assist you to find a roommate for add'l days that you wish to stay or for less days if you opt for the 3 nites 2 day pkg. When you sign up for the trip please let us know which configuration you are choosing so others will know who may or may not be a possible rooming option for the extra days. SingleDivers.com will assist in helping you obtain a suitable roommate based upon our standard rooming survey but we just can't guarantee a roommate on any of the pkg options other than the 4 nite 3 day pkg. Due to other trip obligations I will arrive 1-2 days early to ensure that everything is set up and I will be officially doing the 4 nite 3 day pkg.


BASE PACKAGE of 4 nites 3 days INCLUDES:

SCHEDULED ITINERARY

Oct 28, 2010: Arrive in Cozumel or Cancun (and take the ferry to Cozumel) & Stay at Casa del Mar in Cozumel (You can arrive anytime, take a taxi/shuttle to the hotel, get checked in, have some lunch and you'll be able to do a 'day of arrival' shore dive if you like.)

DISCOUNTS:
•(3) FREE AFTERNOON DIVES for anyone booked and paid in full by May 1, 2010 worth $90 on pkgs of 3 days of diving or more. Or (2) FREE AFTERNOON DIVES for anyone booked and paid in full by May 1, 2010 worth $60 on the 3/2 pkg. Or $30 off any non-diving pkg if booked and paid in full by May 1, 2010.

•$25 rebate eligible after trip for SD premier and above memberships (Only rebates filed within 30 days after the trip can be honored.)
•Price includes cash discount. Please add 3% if paying via paypal or credit card.

TRANSFERS:
Cozumel: Upon arrival take a taxi or transfer to Casa del Mar hotel. If your transfers are booked as part of your airfare via our contract air system, then your name will be on the list from Lomas Travel. If you book your own air then take a taxi usually $10-$15 per person to the hotel. The hotel is zone 1 so the cheapest taxi rates apply.

AVAILABILITY UPDATE:
SD honors a first come and first served premise that is driven by posting in our community. Once a trip has filled up from the "My Check & Documents is in the Mail" and the confirmed deposits/pymnts we will open an official waiting list for the trip. As openings occur we'll open up the Waiting List for trip participants. Only deposited members will decrease the number of spots on the trip. Only members who have sent their deposit or paid for the trip and have sent in their documents i.e. Trip Waiver and Trip Survey will be moved to the official "Who's Going" list. The date we receive your money whether by credit card, paypal or check determines seniority in securing limited spots, special deals etc.

Please note that while you may send pm and email requests for availability due to time lags and travel, it is better to check the official availability which is always available in the main trip post. Thank You! -ww

TEMPS & CONDITIONS:
The weather in Mexico is remarkably consistent year-round. The air temperatures range in the mid 80's during this time of year and the water temps are in still in the mid to low 80's making this truly diving in paradise.

AIRFARE:
We have some availability for discounted air via charter services such as Champion Air, Funjet, Adventure Tours, etc. Otherwise you are more than welcome to make your own arrangements. Let us know and we'll be happy to check for you. Please tell us your departure city(s), airport preferences and your travel dates. We do charge a $25 research and booking fee for handling airfare for you on scheduled airlines ie. AA, CO, etc. Any group charter fares have this fee incorporate in it.

ARRIVAL:
Day 1 is our arrival day and you can arrive anytime. The only thing planned for day 1 is a day of arrival shore dive, getting settled in and having fun! You should plan to fly into Cozumel and out of Cozumel but you may save money by flying in and out of Cancun. If you can go in and out of Cancun (cheaper) and take the ferry to Cozumel you'll need to take a shuttle/taxi to Playa and then the Ferry from Playa to Cozumel. This will run about $70 or so extra. If we have 8 people or more arriving via Cancun we can have the hotel pick us up as a group.

PAYMENT OPTIONS:

SingleDivers.com has implemented a new secure payment gateway that allows you to pay for trips or merchandise using either an e-check which debits your checking account directly without having to mail in a check or debits your credit card without having to fill out a SD.com credit card authorization form. (Please note that any non-US bank originating credit card must still use the paper credit card authorization form as different processing procedures must be followed to process international/non-US credit cards.)

SingleDivers.com provides its members with pricing that reflects all possible cash discounts so any payments via credit card or paypal will still incur a 3% non-cash convenience fee. Our payment gateway which you can access by clicking the PAY SD NOW button below is not a shopping cart and therefore can not total your trip choices nor add the 3% non-cash convenience fee if you are paying via credit card. You will need to enter that data manually to proceed with your payment.

</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></FORM>
This trip should sell out fairly soon, so in order to ensure timely & accurate processing of payment receipts and therefore timely & accurate acceptance of members onto the trip, ONLY PAYMENTS RECEIVED VIA OUR NEW SECURE PAYMENT GATEWAY WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR NEW PARTICIPANTS ON THIS TRIP!

If you are unable to use the gateway please provide a complete description of the problem/error you are encountering and contact kamala@singledivers.com or 864-557-6079 immediately to manually process your payment for you.

Please add a 3% non-cash convenience fee if paying via paypal or credit card or any non-cash option. Checks, money orders and real cash are discounted already.

IMPORTANT TRIP UPDATES:

1. 4-27-10 Trip opened up for Premier Member and Above "First Dibs" booking until May 4th, 2010. (Since there is a $90 EXTRA discount for FREE 3rd Tank Dives if paid in full by May 4th you may wish to upgrade to premier member of which you'll get $25 back and be one of the first to get this extra deal!)

2. Check out these reviews: Cozy Halloween Trip

3. Check out our member's photo galleries from previous trips HERE! and HERE!

1. School Supplies: As is our tradition we take school supplies on our trips to the under privileged children of the countries we visit while diving. Mexico is no exception and we will have many orphanages to bring relief to. One of the non-diving afternoons we will take whoever would like to join us and drop off the school supplies to the kids. I have seen grown men tear up at the look on their faces when they see us.
So PLEASE keep your eye out for school supplies on sale as these items are extremely expensive in the countries we visit. Remember a child can play with a can or a box and use great imagination pretending it is a castle, fort, car or space capsule. But they can not make do as well when they need school supplies so that they can learn and better themselves.


FAQ - CHECK HERE OFTEN TO AVOID READING ALL THE POSTS IN THIS THREAD!

Q. I want to bring School Supplies for the kids. What is best to bring?
A. The basics are always hard to come by...notebooks, paper pads, pens, pencils, pencil sharpeners, markers, etc. Please bypass the ones that are more like toys. And please bring them in one of the million canvas totebags you get from conventions etc....that way they stay together AND a child will end up with a book bag...plus we don't add more plastic to the already challenged environment. You might also pick up some cheap 'readers' from the dollar stores...they will help kids who have a problem reading without glasses. And if you do not want to bring supplies but would rather donate money that is fine too. School supplies have a 50% import tax on them so they become very expensive in the country. That is why paper is good to bring as it is heavy to import and expensive once it is on island. But ANYTHING you bring will be gladly accepted and put to good use. NOTE: Do not pack a box to bring supplies in. Use a suitcase so it looks like it is your personal items. A box will usually be opened and then you will be taxed on the supplies you are bringing in...EVEN if they are for charity.

Q. What is the cost of an extra daily dive in Cozumel?
A. We can do a special 4th tank dive for $30 a person extra vs $45. THIS TRIP HAS 3 BOAT TANKS DIVES DAILY!

Q. How many 100cf tanks you all have and if there is an extra charge for them. (In Cozumel)
A. We have about 10 but if you let them know in advance then we can try to set them aside for you at no extra charge for your group. You know we love your group!

Q. Do you have storage lockers in Cozumel?
A. We have 30 lockers tip: once you get here have everybody bring their own locks and get a locker when they arrive. If you do not have enough we can get you a room.

Q. Why the big deal over trip insurance and when do I have to buy it if I want it?
A. People are used to things being pretty good and not worrying about things like insurance. However for some reason MORE people have experienced having to cancel a trip or having their vacation ruined due to accidents, illness, death in the family and even death of the member. And while our vendors and SD truly want to help you, we are extremely limited in what we can do if you did not take out trip insurance. Therefore we will be STRONGLY ENCOURAGING you to buy trip insurance and consider an annual plan like Dive Assure (link at end of first post) to cover all those unexpected things that would otherwise cause you to lose most if not all of your vacation monies. NOTE: The last possible date to buy insurance is before the last payment is due so 90 days before the trip UNLESS YOU PAY IN FULL FOR ANY EARLY PAYMENT DISCOUNTS.

Q. I am new to the single divers website and am interested in getting some more information about your trips. I was looking at this trip. Do you have people from all over and all ages and experience levels that go on these trips?
A. Yes we do. Divers range from about 25 to 55, we average about 40% women…sometimes more on our trips…several have been essentially 'chick trips' with more gals than guys and we have every one from novices with 6 dives to master scuba diving instructors on trips. EVERYONE is welcome and we love new(er) divers. We even offer an innovative program for new divers that is part divebuddy/dive mentor. Its called Rent-A-Buddy and you hire a private DM to be your buddy so you can focus on YOU and YOUR diving and not worry about anything or anyone else. Your buddy will also mentor you providing customized feedback on YOUR diving helping to reinforce GOOD habits or develop GOOD habits right from the start. Everyone who participates in this program RAVES about it. Its quite reasonable…$50 per day or $150 for the week.

Q. I'm trying to decide if I should do a double occupancy to save money or a single just in case the roomie thing does not work out. What do you recommend?
A. You have CHOICES on our trips. One of our primary goals is to AVOID SINGLE SUPPLEMENTS. We use an extensive rooming and trip survey to help us with rooming decisions. If we help you with rooming you won't be disappointed. And if for some reason your roomie looked good on paper but just didn't pan out in reality...TRUST ME WHEN I SAY...it's not a big deal and we'll get you swapped with someone else in a flash. EVERYONE knows that it could be them that didn't mesh with their roomie so they are happy to help someone else match up better. After all...it could be them the next time. So let us know which way you want to go and you can see by the extensive survey we do...we have LOTS of parameters to help you match on many levels with a potential roommate. And if you just want to unwind and pamper yourself...the single upgrade fee is not that much and you can have a luxurious time by yourself. The CHOICE is YOURS!!! :thankyou:

Q. I noticed in the "who's going" section that most of the people have nitrox, is that a problem if I don't?
A. Absolutely not but many divers find it will allow them to dive more since we are doing 3 boat dives a day. We'll have an instructor on the trip so if you want to take the class while you are there it's a great way to combine diving and training. Air divers will be buddied with other air divers and/or I'll dive with any air diver that needs a buddy. SD.com will help you with the buddy arrangements!

Q. Do I need to sign in as a member to be able to access all the forms that are needed?
A. Yes you will need to register on the site with a screen name (choose a fun diving or personality related one if you can) and you'll need to be logged into the site to post. Once you tell us you are going on a trip with us we send you a link to the forms in case you have not found the link in my signature along with the password for the forum. (Note it is NOT the same as your login password.) To sign up for a trip simply POST in the topic/thread that you want to go with us, your payment is enroute and then tell us if you'll need extra days, if you want double or single occupancy, if you want nitrox or air, etc.

Q. What would be the easiest way to pay with my credit card for this, could I call you and pay that way?
A. You can pay with credit card via our new secure online web payment gateway. Simply click on the CLICK HERE TO PAY SD NOW button in the first post or my signature line and it will allow you to pay via cc or your checking account. All prices are discounted for cash so if not paying via check please include the 3% non-cash convenience fee. If using a credit card not drawn on a US bank you may have to fill out our credit card authorization form so we can process your payment manually (found in the forms forum link in my signature) and email it as a pdf to me to kamala@singledivers.com or fax it to me to 888-480-0906 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              888-480-0906      end_of_the_skype_highlighting Again please include the 3% non-cash convenience fee if paying via this method.

Q. Is it more common for people to book their own flights, or do you do most of the travel arrangements for people?
A. Actually most people do book their own flights. We are happy to help but charge a nominal $25 booking fee for researching and booking flights for you unless the flight is part of the trip package and then the price is covered in the trip cost already. Let us know if you'd like us to make travel arrangements for you. We simply add the $25 fee to your total invoice.

Q. Can I get a Rent-A-Buddy for this trip...how does it work?
A. Yes you can rent-a-buddy for the trip...we have a limited number of DM's/Instructors available for you to rent to help you focus on only yourself and not worry about being someone's buddy or to allow you to improve your air consumption and bouyancy etc. You are hiring a professional 'coach' to help you reinforce your recent open water skills or to help you refresh them or to just basically help to mentor you. The price is $50 per day or $150 for the week. If you need your rent-a-buddy to do your first night dive it is recommended that you consider the night dive specialty or even just the night dive sign off of AOW...Advanced Open Water via one of our instructors.

Q. I will need Rental Gear. What do I do?
A. Let us know what you need for rental gear? We will have Cochran computers available that you can use to do DAN research AND avoid having to rent. As for other rental gear...here is what the dive shop in Cozumel offers:

Our Rental equipment brands are:
Regulators: Aqualung
BCD's: Aqualung

Our rental prices are per day:
Regulators: 5.00 usd
BCD's: 5.00 usd
Wet suits: 5.00 usd
Snorkel set (mask, fins, snorkel) 5.00 usd.


Q. What is the cost of nitrox in Cozumel?
A. $10.00 per tank per person paid in advance as a group.

Q. Will there be a Halloween Costume Party again this year?
A. YES and there will be fantastic prizes as well! The Theme is HALLOWEEN...Stay tuned for more details! Posted Image

If you do not and do not book your trip properly, SingleDivers.com will honor those bookings that were made according to the new process outlined in the first post. You will also note that we are using a new format for collecting information from you that we need to book your holiday. We are streamlining our manual processes so we can better automate them later this year.

And finally...since this trip is anticipated to fill out quickly, your spot will NOT be guaranteed until we receive you $400 deposit AND you FILL OUT THE BOOKING TEMPLATE. In order to be fair all payments will be received via our new SECURE ONLINE payment gateway ONLY so they will be timestamped accordingly. The payments are NOT realtime so to compensate for the lag...ONLY PAYMENTS RECEIVED VIA THE NEW SECURE ONLINE PAYMENT GATEWAY WILL BE HONORED. If you must use AMEX you can pay us via paypal. Our ID is kamala@singledivers.com but you must add the 3% non-cash convenience fee to all payments via paypal including bank draft as we are charged this amount regardless. As noted in the first post, if you have ANY problems please document them and contact kamala@singledivers.com asap to manually enter your payment in the gateway or resolve the problem for you.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW THEM INCLUDING THE USE OF OUR NEW SECURE ONLINE PAYMENT GATEWAY! (Instructions and link found in the first post.)

HOW TO BOOK A SPOT ON THIS TRIP:

Be sure to read this section in the FIRST POST as it has changed. :thankyou:

And see you in Mexico!!!

Remember our premiers get first dibs on booking until May 1st AND the Early Payment $90 FREE 3rd Dives (or $60 FREE 3rd Dives if 3/2 pkg or $30 CASH if Non-Diver pkg) Discount Ends May 1st!

Hi Kamala,
I plan to either take this trip or the Maldives trip. :unsure:
So if you could give us an update on that thread, I would be able to make a decision quickly.
