FILLS & RENTALS:

 

Tanks are not included in the diving charter price because unlike a international destination where you can't bring your own tanks and therefore they are supplied; in NC you can bring your own tanks and so most people do since its a 'drive in' destination.

 

So if you are bringing your own tanks use the "FILL" pricing below. If you are renting tanks use the "RENTAL" pricing below. Also note that regardless of fills or rentals...you will need to help get the tanks to the shop for filling for the next day. The shop provides carts for helping with this and we'll create an assembly line to help people etc. But just remember that the shop is NOT responsible for taking your tanks off the boat, filling them and returning them to the boat the next day.

 

We will start to capture what you are doing HERE so we can get enough tanks onhold for you if RENTING. If doing fills it is not a big deal. If renting tanks and you opt for a larger tank then we definitely MUST get them on hold for you as soon as we can.

I am in a bit of a bad mood today for some reason.  I figured that booking a SingleDivers trip would cheer me up a little.  Looking forward to it.

I was surprised that you werent one of the first to sign up.  You were one of the people that got Kamala to schedule the trip last year.  It sounds like this will be the last N.C. trip for a while also, so give it some thought.  Ed
