NC 2021 TRIP FAQ:

  • How to Book

Q. Why can't I seem to be able to book this trip? It won't let me log in and I have tried the recover password several times but it does not help?  4-13-21

A. You must be a premium member aka Premier or above to book our trips. The price is $35 a year of which you can file for a $25 member rebate after every trip you take with us or private travel booking you make. So your membership dues are only $10 after one trip and you are saving even more money with two or more!  SO....please verify your premium membership is current and if you are still having issues please email admin@singledivers.com for add'l help.

 

  • What's Included

    Q. What dive equipment is included in this package? I would assume rental equipment would be available for anything not included? And if so is there an option to pay for that in advance??  (4-13-21)

    A.The pkg price includes only lead and weight belts if you need them The operator will rent bcd, regulator, computer, and optional items such as a wetsuit.  TANKS ARE NOT INCLUDED because many people have their own tanks or want special mixes due to this being a US Destination you can easily drive too. WE ARE RENTING TANKS AND DOING FILLS FOR PEOPLE BOTH AIR AND NITROX.

     

    1. NOTE: if you plan to video, take pictures, look into nooks and crannies or simple see the TRUE COLOR of the REEF washed in its true brilliant colors you are in luck... Our uber cool Corporate Sponsor Big Blue Dive Lights is supplying a variety of dive lights and video lights you can USE FOR FREE to see how amazing they are.
    2. Most people wait to pay for rental gear IF THERE IS A CHARGE at the resort for several reasons.... sometimes we get multiple corporate sponsors who will allow you to TRY BEFORE YOU BUY and so you get the use of something like a light or computer FOR FREE!!!  
    3. And sometimes other members on the trip are happy to loan extras which save ou money so we typically do not collect rental fees in advance
    4. NOTE: Even IF the rental gear is included in the package WE MUST SUPPLY THE RESORT WITH ALL OUR RENTAL NEEDS SO THEY ARE MORE THAN READY for everyone's needs.

     

  • Accommodations
     
    Q. Can non-divers join this trip? 4-13-21

    A. Yes absolutely....BUT you may have to stay at a different hotel as the divers will completely fill up the trip hotel with no extra room. If you wish to bring your non-diver companion please email kamala@singledivers.com to work it out and see if we can make it happen.

    • Q. Do they put our tanks on the boat for us and take them off at the end of the day like they in most places around the world?

      A. No. Since this is a US Domestic venue and we live in such a litigeous society, for liability reasons you put your own tank on the boat and hook up your own gear. No one will do this for you so no 'valet' diving in NC.

       

      Update on add'l requirements from the operator: Please note the addition of the requirement that diver's must be physically able to put their own rental or private tanks on the boat and remove them for fills at the end of the day.

       

    • OTHER REQUIREMENTS FROM THE BOAT:

    ·         A minimum of 40-50 logged dives. Advanced Open Water Certification OR equivalent required.

    ·         At least 2 dives in the ocean to 70 feet or greater.

    ·         At least 2 logged boat ocean dives.

    ·         At least 2 dives in the last 12 months. Minimum age for Full Day Dive Trip is 15 years old.

    ·         Physically able to put tanks (rental or private) on the boat each day and remove them to get them filled.   (Wheelbarrows are available but the dive crew/shop staff do not manage/handle tanks for divers.)
