It appears that if you select deposit on the dropdown it will put that amount in your cart as an option:

Does that not show up when you do it?

Deposit probably will not show in the cart until you get to final checkout where you put the credit card number in.  Working on fixing this.

Curious, when they say " and all diving is done from the ease of 3 dive tenders" do they mean we take little boats from the main boat to the sites? I have trouble getting in those inflatables from the water. Or is their website just worded strange, because a few paragraphs above they describe the large waterline dive deck on the main boat  "The huge waterline-level dive deck can accommodate all 22 divers with individual seating stations, and 3 professional guides will be in the water on each dive. It is customized for effortless diving"?

I am not sure if they use the tenders only for parts of the region or if they use them for all the dives. It has become the norm to use the tenders however most allow you to take your gear off and climb up an easy to board ladder. In fact for many they can climb up the ladder to the tender with gear on they are so easy to use. I have sent a clarification email for you. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back. Thanks Kamala

Hi Tami,

 

The Nitrox Fee for the week on this trip is only $3 / $2 Cash (I double checked the pricing of the Nitrox Add On on the Booking Page). Apparently this covers an administration fee for verifying Nitrox certification? Perhaps Kamala will elaborate. Here is what I found on the latest Trip Details post in the Red Sea Private Message PM thread to which you refer:

 

  • Nitrox (if certified to dive it...must show proper credentials)

OPTIONAL ADD-ON'S:

  • Nitrox Upgrade Pkg for full week: $3 or  $2 CASH PRICE (nitrox is included but we need to be sure you are qualified to dive it and track who is diving it)

Brad is right! The nominal fee is to do the leg work upfront to be sure all are certified to dive it and allow our booking system to register such a low number without showing a negative amount. LOL!

I second Brad's remarks... well not sure about the elves thing LOL...but the no worries about the question as some trips are basically free up front like this one and some we refund it back like Bonaire for the repeat Bonaire divers.

Hey gang to keep the great pricing for our pkg we need to bundle it with the int'l air and the domestic air. This means we just get to JFK on our own. I will have the flights and pkg details posted by tomorrow.I'm working out the rest of the details this evening. Thank you!
