i am getting ready to send in my final payment and the port and conservation fees as well as extras for night dives and nitrox are all due with this payment.  how is this handled?  should i just add on the extra amounts and include the information in the note i send with payment or is there another way to sign up for nitrox and night dives?

 

thank you

Hi Tami,

 

I notice in the Trip Details portion Nitrox was both included as part of the package and later is listed under not included - we are pretty sure the Nitrox is included since typically it is not, yet it is specifically part of the "Included with package" list. Also Night dives are not mentioned anywhere in the Trip Details Post, yet it appears available in the Who's Going topic and even has Kamala listed as already signed up. You may have guessed by now we use a template and flesh out details. I am cleaning up both topics now to remove Night Dives as an option (sorry) and to remove Nitrox as an Add On since it is listed as included in the basic trip package. Thanks for asking about this, hopefully your question will spare confusion from other members.

As for the conservation and port fees, it appears from the Aggressor Fleet Cuba Oceans for Youth page that the port and conservation fees are paid to them so include them in your payment. Thanks for the great questions!

Port Fees $190.00

Conservation Fees $100.00

Tami let me check with Aggressor first since you mail the payment to them.   I also will verify about nitrox... we have conflicting info on whether it is included or not. I apologize for the inconvenience. As the club grows our volunteers grow and we are letting them branch out to new responsibilities... so we expect a few inconsistencies as we get thru the growing stages.

 

As a new volunteer yourself I'm sure you get it. We will clear this up asap. Thank you! Kamala

UPDATE:

 

I have sent an email to Aggressor to help ascertain what everyone owes still on this trip and how much nitrox is along with any other  amts you need to pay at this time like the fees. As soon as I hear back I will reply and then you all can start making your final payments. Thanks!
