SPECIAL TRIP HIGHLIGHTS -

1. School Supplies - As is our tradition, we take school & LIFE supplies on our trips to the under-privileged children of the countries we visit while diving. Bonaire is no exception, and we will have several schools to help out. One of the non-diving afternoons, we will take whoever would like to join us and drop off the school supplies to the kids. Please help us support this effort…so little means so much! So PLEASE keep your eye out for school & LIFE supplies (such as toiletries, simple clothes,etc) on sale as these items are extremely expensive in the countries we visit. - THE HOME WE GIVE THE SUPPLIES TOO CATERS TO ALL AGES AND IS THE LAST RESORT FOR MANY OF ITS INHABITANTS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! 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.

2. Activities and Fun for Single and Married but Buddyless Divers! Come join in to LOTS of fun in the sun...have fun meeting other single and buddyless divers or pamper yourself a little! There is something for everyone! INCLUDING our wacky and fun COSTUME PARTY! The theme will be announced soon and will surely be fun and creative! (They always are and the PRIZES are awesome including FREE DIVING, FREE TRAVEL, FREE DIVE GEAR & MORE! )

TRIP INSURANCE VS GAMBLING LOSSES:
Hey folks if you are gamblers and opt to NOT take out trip insurance that is your decision! However, please understand that neither Divi Resorts nor SingleDivers.com can help you out with your gambling losses. SD.com accepts a huge amount of liability to fill ALL the trips we run OR EAT THE SPOTS. :-D I can assure you that I have paid plenty of gambling losses over the years. But I won't gamble with my life (I have both DAN and DIVE ASSURE for Dive Insurance) and I won't gamble with my trips...(I have the annual policy by DIVE ASSURE which covers ALL MY DIVE TRIPS!)
So the choice is yours....bet on no hurricanes, no accidents, no illness, no deaths in the family, no job loss, no immediate death/injury to yourself* ...and laugh in the end when your bet pays off. But when it does not...PLEASE :huh: PLEASE :o PLEASE do not expect Divi Resorts or SingleDivers.com to refund your money because your bet did not pan out. ;)
NOTE: One of the reason's we have you finalize your extras and pay for everything by 90 days out is so you have more flexibility getting trip insurance. Please take a moment TODAY to do this important task. :blink: *If you think it can't happen to you please think again...sadly it happens A LOT!!

BONAIRE & GENERAL SD TRIP RELATED FAQ!

Q. Can you explain how the dive orientation works and when the days of diving are based upon when I arrive?
a. No one may dive until they do the mandatory island wide dive orientation. (All of Bonaire is a marine park so everyone must go thru the same briefing REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU ARE STAYING.)
b. This orientation is held at 9am daily and is ONLY offered once a day.
c. Only those on the redeyes out of NJ or HOU will arrive in time to do their orientation the SAME DAY THEY ARRIVE. If you take the Delta flight for instance and arrive in the afternoon you can not dive until after the orientation the NEXT DAY at 9am.
d. You can do an afternoon boat dive the day you do your orientation but you will NOT be able to do the am boat dives as the boat will have left at 8am. (The pkg is set up so you have more than enough days to get all 5 dive days in and all 15 boat dives)
e. The orientation is both a talk and diving. The talk usually lasts for 45 minutes or more. You are required to get wet for at least 5 minutes to check out your gear and your weighting. I dive all the time and usually feel I need NEITHER to check my gear nor to check my weighting. However on the last trip I did the mandatory check out dive for 5 minutes which was just long enough to discover that my low pressure inflator hose had been damaged in flight. This cinched the deal for me...I ALWAYS check out my gear before falling off the boat for the official dives which is basically all they are asking you to do.
f. If you arrive on Sat 6am flights you can do your orientation on Sat and start your boat dives in the afternoon of Sat or on Sunday. If you arrive in the afternoon on Saturday you will do your orientation on SUNDAY and can start your boat dives in the afternoon of Sunday or on Monday. You have a 5 day pkg which runs based upon when you arrive and can start diving. So arriving on noon Saturday means orientation on Sunday and diving M-F and leaving Saturday. If you arrive at 6am-ish on Saturday then you can have all day the next Friday to let gear dry and then fly out on Saturday.

Q. I am interested in this Bonaire trip and have a question for you. I saw something about not being able to dive until a dive briefing is done and that most people are doing a red eye to get there on the first day so they could do the dive briefing because the next morning (Sunday) if you did not do the dive briefing you would not be able to dive on Sunday. Can you please confirm that this is either true or not true? I want to fly in on Saturday afternoon, but if that means I lose a whole day of diving on Sunday because of this briefing then I want to think about it. Places I've been to would do a briefing on Sunday just before the boat left so that you can dive all day.
A. Great question. First the reason most people take the red eyes in isthey are the primary direct flight options to the island. However for some there is some tactile reasoning which is related to the way the island of Bonaire handle's it dive briefings as a country. The entire island of Bonaire is a marine park...therefore they require a mandatory briefing before entering the water. This mainly affects boat diving as you can begin shore diving immediately. The pkg is set up so you don't lose your 5 days of boat diving or 15 dives regardless of when you arrive...they may not be the same 5 days as everyone else but you will get them all in. And because flights to the island are so limited you will have a number of others on the same flight as yourself. So if you arrive Sat you would do the 9am briefing on Sunday and could shore dive the rest of the day and start boat diving Monday followed up by Tues, Wed, Thurs, Friday. Actually you can start boat diving on Sunday as you could do the afternoon boat dive on Sunday leaving the 2 am boat dives for Friday before departing Sat. If you arrive Sunday 6am you do the 9am briefing and can do a boat dive in the afternoon or just start your boat diving on Monday. If you arrive Sat 6am then you can start boat diving on Sunday.

Since Bonaire is one of the only if not the only island that is entirely a marine park they won't waiver on this. Every operator on the island enforces it equally. You must do the dive briefing FIRST before any diving but really only the boat dives are impacted as you can shore dive the rest of the day Sunday as there are wonderful sites only accessible via shore on the island. You could rent a car for just the first day which means it can be picked up at the airport when you arrive and then returned after a day of island shore diving. This works beautifully with the weeks logistics and flow.

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 and in this case you must buy it when you pay for the trip.

Q. I am new to the single divers website and am interested in getting some more information about your trips. I was looking at the Bonaire trip for March. 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 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!!! :cool1:

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 using the info from the survey we have you fill out. You are never locked into these suggestions and are free to change at any time. Most of our members rave at how well our dive buddy suggestions turn out to be!

Q. Do I need to sign in as a premier 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. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL TRIP IN 2012 WE REQUIRE YOU TO BE A PREMIER MEMBER SO WE CAN EFFECTIVELY COMMUNICATE VITAL TRIP DETAILS DURING THE BOOKING PROCESS AND ALL PRE-TRIP PHASES. AS A PREMIER MEMBER YOU WILL QUALIFY FOR MEMBER ONLY DISCOUNTS FOR EARLY BOOKING, FIRST DIBS ON LIMITED SPOTS, $25 MEMBER REBATE AFTER EVERY TRIP IF YOU FILE FOR IT AND WE'LL SEND YOU PRIVATE MESSAGES WITH IMPORTANT TRIP HAPPENINGS AS A SPECIAL COURTESY FOR OUR PREMEIR MEMBERS AND ABOVE ONLY!

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 secure online web payment gateway. Simply click on the CLICK HERE TO PAY SD NOW button on the home page or in my signature below or along the top of each page of the forums 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 864-944-6769. 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. We are sorry that we were not able to get air discounts for Bonaire as we have in past years. DO LOOK FOR NEW FLIGHTS FRO INSEL AIR!

Q. Can I get a Rent-A-Buddy for this trip...how does it work? A. Yes you can rent-a-buddy AKA a "Dive Mentor" 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 trip. 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. THEN you can do one with your rent-a-buddy!

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 for FREE to do DAN research AND avoid having to rent. As for other rental gear...please let us know and we'll get you the prices.

Q. I want to bring School & LIFE Supplies for the kids. What is best to bring?
A. Last year we discovered the need for the orphanage which covers ALL AGES includes simply clothing, toiletries and basic supplies which 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 tote bags 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.

Life Supplies: We will compile a full list of things needed by the orphanage for the kids and let you know!

Q. Is there a place on the site behind the scenes to discuss meeting up at airports, sign up for rental trucks, impart tips & tidbits about diving on Bonaire?

a. Yes, please check out this forum: INSERT LINK HERE The password will be sent to everyone, but if ever needed again, please send an email to: Trips@singledivers.com and we will send it to you again. Check this link often for updates! It will not appear in the "view new posts".

Q. I noticed that none of my flight info is listed in the area where everyone else's is for the Bonaire trip! Was I supposed to post that info myself? If so, how do I do it!
A. Yes if you want your info posted in the thread for your flight details you post it in a post saying here are your flight details and our trip coordinators or myself will post it in the first post. This also lets others know when you will be arriving as well.

Q. Have you by any chance figured out who is going to room together yet? A. You are correct that we do not announce the rooming until you get to the hotel. Keep in mind that rooming is ALWAYS subject to change especially before the trip begins but even after it has begun. If we discover that we have a problem and have to change someone then obviously several people would have to be changed to make it work. But it works because EVERYONE knows it could be them so they are willing to be flexible. This is part of what makes this group so great. If your roomie does not work out despite being good 'on paper' you simply let us know and we start working on suitable changes. We ask that you give us at least 24 hrs to work out a rooming change. Within 24hrs the problem may have worked itself out or we will have found someone willing to swap roomies to make it all work. Either way it will work out if everyone is willing to be flexible. :respect:

Q. Also for those of us who signed up ahead of time who might be able to get an upgrade...when does that all take place? When we get there?
A. We do not announce the upgrade winner until right before the trip or until we get there.

Q. Is there a place to store our dive gear at the end of the day?
A. Divi has gear lockers on the boat dock for their guests. You will share this locker with your roommate, and at least one of you should bring a padlock. A combination lock is best, but you can bring a keyed lock if you bring two keys.

Q. Are rental trucks available for shore diving off site?
A. If you are doing the shorediving only pkg. and want to rent a truck for the week to share with a total of 4 people the price is approx $350-$400 which includes the taxes but does not include insurance. This is via Hertz which is right on property and you can often get good rates via the airport as well.

Q. If I want to just do shorediving and not be restricted to diving for only an hour at a time on the boat dives is that possible?
A. Yes you can book this as a "shorediving" only pkg. It will still include breakfast, lunch and 2 dinners but you'll be free to dive for as long as you like and as many dives a day that you want and your computer will of course allow.

Q. Is anything else going on on the island while we're there?
A. Sometimes Carnival on Bonaire coincides with our annual trip to Bonaire. Carnival is the biggest cultural event on Bonaire. With several parades in which youngsters and elderly participate. Come and watch the dancing people, admire their coloured costumes and listen to the swinging music.

Carnival dates 2012: February 18-21,2012
Other Things To Do: Besides diving you can parasail, go see the famous flamingos, visit the donkey rescue farm, see the slave huts and more.

RECREATIONAL TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES:

Instructor(s): TBA

We are PLANNING to have LOTS of training options available for you on this trip. If you've considered getting your nitrox class...or want to learn how to better communicate underwater or take digital memories underwater that friends and co-workers rave about...consider taking your next step in ongoing diver education while in Bonaire with us.

It's easy. You do the reading and bookwork BEFORE the trip. (Ok some will do it on the plane ride but that's ok too!) You do your class work during surface intervals with one of our extremely talented instructors and you do any required dives with your instructors, pass the test and you will be certified in a new skill, knowledge base or specialty. Oh yes...and not only will you obtain the best collective knowledge of our seasoned pros...as a member of SingleDivers.com you'll reap the benefit of our price discounts for members and you'll save money too! :P


So here are the classes we are offering for this trip. Please read the summary points at the end of this point and please let us know if you have any questions!

FULL DETAILS COMING SOON!!! Let us know if you are interested in training so we can plan accordingly!

TECHNICAL TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES:

The following Technical Classes are *PLANNING to be offered on this trip. Please note that technical diving is NOT for everyone. It is NOT the next step in your training and it is NOT a notch in your diving belt. It is serious dive training that will prepare you to dive longer, manage decompression, and/or dive deeper than recreational limits. All of these courses require additional and/or different gear than what you may be used to diving in recreational scuba. If you never go deep, never stay down long and never use the gear...you will not have missed anything. But for those who answer the call of deeper, longer and more challenging diving...this is the training you will need.

DISCLAIMER: THIS NEEDS TO BE READ BY ANYONE CONTEMPLATING A TECH CLASS AND IS BEING FINALIZED BY THE INSTRUCTOR. FULL DETAILS COMING SOON! Courses to be offered inlcude:

SideMount
Discover Tec
Advanced Nitrox
Deco Procedures
Tec 40, 45, & 50



* We need a minimum of divers interested in the tec classees to ensure we can bring a top notch instructor to teach you. Your training will be done prior to your boat dives so as to ensure you get all of the scheduled boat dives in. The formula works well, but we need to have a minimum of 6 classes committed to in order to offer these courses.

This trip is NOW OPEN FOR BOOKING!!!

Please note the procedure outlined in HOW TO BOOK A SPOT ON THIS TRIP in order to book your trip properly. Not following these procedures may result in you not booking your spot properly. This normally may not be an issue but in a trip where spots are limited vs. demand...improperly booking may result in not getting a spot. :(

Note: You are responsible for READING EVERYTHING IN THE FIRST 5 POSTS which include the Trip Updates, FAQ's, Who's Going etc.! If you do not read everything in these posts and do not book your trip properly, SingleDivers.com will honor those bookings that were made according to the booking process outlined in the first post.

So PLEASE use our BOOKING TEMPLATE to help tell us what you want and ultimately sign up correctly for the trips. (If you need help email charlies@singledivers.com or angels@singledivers.com and our awesome volunteers will help you!)

And finally...since this trip is anticipated to fill out quickly, your spot will NOT be guaranteed until we receive you $500 deposit AND which pkg you are choosing i.e. Mar 3-10 or March 4-11, OR ANY COMBINATION THEREOF and whether you have or will get TRIP insurance. 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 SECURE ONLINE PAYMENT GATEWAY WILL BE HONORED. 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 SECURE ONLINE PAYMENT GATEWAY! (Instructions are found in the first post and entitled:)

Charles, the past few years the Town Pier has been closed to diving. As we get closer, I can check to see if they've opened it back up or not. But, I've done that dive as a night dive, and frankly wasn't all that impressed as there were too many dive groups in the water at one time.

This won't be a problem at the Divi resort. You can use one of Kamala's Cochran computers free for the week, if you post that you'd like to use it & help with DAN research, so you would not have to rent a computer. Water temps are typically 81-82 degrees during the March week we'll be there, so it's up to you whether you will need a wetsuit or not. Regs, gauges, wetsuits & BCD's are plentiful at Divi. Tanks, weights & belt are included in the dive package already.

Since you're coming in on the red-eye out of New Jersey, you can deal with the gear rental right after the 9am orientation at the dive shop.

ROOMING UPDATE:

We have 15 rooms for our Single's Week. That is up to 30 people. If we exceed it we should be able to get more. BUT signing up EARLY ensures you get a spot! :cheerleader:

Rooming Summary & Inventory Counts:

1. Kamala aka WreckWench d/o NEED Flight Details
2. Gary aka Harleyguy1963 s/o NEED DOCS
3. Charles aka DoctorB d/o NEED DOCS + Money??
4. Mike aka MikeNJ d/o NEED DOCS + Money??

Inventory Update:

15 rooms less...

1 s/o = 1 room
3 d/o = 1.5 room or actually 2 rooms

So 15 - 3 = 12 rooms left for either s/o or d/o.
