We've had a great start to the sign up process and this "Who's Going Post" will be updated soon! In the meantime...

 

JUST A REMINDER... if you upgrade your membership using our private payment portal ...it will take approx 2 business days to upgrade your membership as several people have to verify, intercede, manually manage. I know its frustrating. THE ANSWER?  You can upgrade your membership via PayPal and it will do EVERYTHING AUTOMATICALLY and you can sign up for the trip immediately!

 

Thanks to all our awesome members planning to join us on the trip and to those who have already signed up! :wakawaka:

Erica you may list the rental items you will need in a reply post here or better, you may check the boxes of the standard rental gear listed in the Special Accommodations Form as part of your MY TRIPS documents submissions.

 

Either way is fine, we Trip Coordinators regularly review our assigned Trip Topics, but the Form was created specifically to capture such information. Remember in either your reply post here or in the Form in the Comments window to include sizes for BC, wetsuit, or fins if renting any of these items. :diver:

Do I need to bring fins?

Im eagerly awaiting the snorkel package.

Oh, and while Im thinking about it 2-3 days in Bali BEFORE Raja Ampat would be a delight for me. It may jar some memories of Eat, Pray, and Love - starred Julia Roberts.

Hey girl I hope to have the non diver and snorkeler pkg ready to go this week! YEA!!! I will post the pricing as soon as I have it. As for fins do you like full foot fins? If so you can leave your fins at home and use the ones from the resort. However if you know that you fins do not give you blisters OR you like booties with them so you can more readily walk in the sand or one the boat etc then you'll want to bring your own. My recommendation? Bring the things that ou are USED TO and FEEL GOOD TO YOU. Then you'll have a much better trip!

Ive always rented fins on my last couple of trips. I bought fins that require booties when I went to Galápagos in 2008.

I will bring my snorkel 😀

Hey girl... I've almost got the snorkeler and non snorkeler prices worked out As for rental gear the fins are ALL full foot fins. So if you liked your fins that required booties I would bring them. I think they are more comfortable in general and for sure in most dive destinations. This would be one that a fin that fits in a bootie would be the most comfortable.

Fins that Ive rented in Dominica, Rostand, Cozumel did NOT require booties. They were comfortable.

Now, I do have booties and the fins I have are long - I bought them when I went to Galápagos in 2008.

Hi Carolyn,

 

We see you have already booked your basic package, this makes you eligible to purchase any of the Add On options you wish! Log in the Home Page, click the "TRIPS" tab then under Raj Ampat 2020 click again the Book Now button. Once on the same page you used to book the basic package scroll down the page to the Add On section and place whichever Add On you want in the Shopping Cart. You do not and in fact cannot purchase another basic trip package, the system protects you from that. Just add the Add On options you want to the Shopping Cart then click Check Out and complete the purchase.

 

We are here to help! Feel free to email trips@singlediver.com with any further questions OR for questions regarding trip topics you can post in Trip Topic #3 QUESTIONS QUESTIONS QUESTIONS topic.... :diver:
