Waiting List:

WHAT YOU'LL SEE:

We'll dive Isla Mona, Isla Monito and Isla Desecheo. Mona Island, is considered by many as the "Galapagos of the Caribbean" and features fascinating rare animal life including rare birds, iguanas and prolific marine life below. One Government official said, "You can't dive there - those are shark infested waters". The Nekton Crew said "That Sounds Great!"

The underwater world of these unique islands is closer in feel to Eastern Pacific diving except the water is much warmer (80 degrees or better) and you will see warm water, hard and soft corals, as well as incredible number of sponges, sea fans, sea whips, etc. presented in a way very different from typical Caribbean dive sites.

Much of the diving is off of the shear cliffs and wave swept boulders calved from the cliffs. Because of the waves, currents and proximity to hard vertical surfaces, much of the diving requires good buoyancy control and proper functioning equipment providing the ability to descend quickly, swim under the wave zone, enjoy the dive and swim away from the wave zone surfacing in the calmer water well off the cliff. For your diving efforts you will be rewarded with abundant sea life including sea turtles too numerous to count, sharks on nearly every dive and fish life of every description.

SCHEDULED ITINERARY

While each Western PR and Mona Island cruise may vary due to weather and conditions, the outline below will give you a good feel for the exciting week in store for you!
Posted Image
Days Prior to start of our trip: If you wish to arrive early in San Juan PR or want to combine other diving adventures in conjunction with this one let us know. NOTE: While we can pass Nekton's Frequent Diver Discounts onto you if you book travel privately with us this special price is so good that it exceeds the Frequent Diver Discount so will not apply to this trip. If you wish to do a back to back let us know and we'll check for a possible discount for you. Or if you wish to book another Nekton trip we can always get you any discounts given by the boat + a few of our own!
Dec 12 Saturday: Your week begins by arriving in Mayaguez MAZ (yes you can fly directly into Mayaguez via Cape Air or at the modern San Juan International Airport SJU which is serviced by several airlines with regular jet service. Since Puerto Rico and the Mona Islands are commonwealth territory of the United States, typical immigration and customs hassles are non-existent for US citizens. If you choose to fly to San Juan (SJU), there are several transfer options for the 3+ hour ride to the west coast port of Mayaguez. OR YOU CAN FLY DIRECTLY INTO MAYAGUEZ (MAZ). One may rent a car, arrange for a private transfer, or ride in a shared van with other Nekton guests (the shuttle price is listed below also note that the shared shuttle will require a wait as other Nekton guests arrive.Currently it is set to leave at 7pm 5:45 pm and we will have 1 van which will carry all passengers going to Mayazuez. So plan to do some sight seeing in San Juan or bring a good book if you hang out at the airport.) If you arrive to Mayaquez via plane or private rental car you can shop/sightsee this pretty little city. Taxis are available from the Port of Mayaguez to the quaint shops and cafes of old Mayaguez. Dinner is served onboard the NEKTON and boarding begins at 7:00 pm. (NOTE we are not anticipated to arrive until 10 or 10:30 via the shared shuttle.) Later that night the vessel gets underway for the first destination of Isla Desecheo.
Dec 13 Sunday: Isla Desecheo is a tall mountain-like island with steeply rising slopes and a low-lying shoreline including a couple of beautiful protected coves which are great for kayaking. The lee side or western shore diving includes shallow patch reefs with profiles to 10 feet. This will be your first introduction to the prolific basket sponges of this unique area. Everywhere you look, you will see basket sponges of all sizes in both individual stands and mass colonies. Your first morning dives will typically be on the choppier north side, weather permitting, at a very dramatic site called Hobbit House. Here you will enjoy many swim-throughs under island-born boulders morphed by centuries of reef building. The end result is an enchanting odyssey not soon forgotten. The morning will pass all too quickly as even two dives will not seem like enough to fully explore this area. The afternoon will usually see the vessel move to the Eastern sites with easy, shallow day and night dives as well as kayaking, and snorkeling.
Dec 14 Monday: The morning is usually spent on a deep mini-wall with the mooring on top at 80 feet and the mini-wall dropping to below 130'. Enjoy a majestic 45 degree face of hard and soft corals teeming with life. Finish up the day on OMC reef. Start conserving your dive energy for the high energy diving on Mona Island and Isla Monito.
Dec 15 Tuesday: Your day starts with a first look at Mona Island diving on the southwest side of the island. Here is your first introduction to the numerous turtles of the area including the endangered Hawksbill and Leatherback. Be sure to look for tags under their front flippers as the four island rangers, the Department of Natural Resources and the Puerto Rican Universities do a great job of tracking the local populations. The afternoon brings the boat to that "One Particular Harbor" with great shallow diving.
Dec 16 Wednesday: The boat repositions to the northeast side of Mona Island for a day of cliff diving - Isla Mona style! Enjoy expansive underwater caves, fallen boulders as big as a house, and intense fish populations. Feel the reverberation of the Atlantic swells unloading their energy on the cliffs above. Diving on this day is a little more advanced in that one prefers to swim to and from the wall in the calmer waters below the wave zone and avoid getting caught up in the washing machine working on full spin above.
Dec 17 Thursday: Enjoy a morning drift dive off Isla Monita for some colorful and dramatic cliff diving. Isla Monita, the smallest and most vertical of the islands, is so steep and deep that mooring or anchoring is not possible. There is the possibility of seeing just about anything here where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean Sea.
Dec 18 Friday: Morning dive at "The Isthmus" (80') and afternoon dives at Boqueron Reef (50'-65') along the southwest coast of Puerto Rico. A beautiful sandy beach lined with palm trees and a quaint town has made Boqueron a favorite for locals and cruising yachtsmen alike. The bay is shallow, protected and accommodates scores of sailboats. Enjoy an evening ashore where you'll find many inexpensive restaurants and bars and a couple of more "civilized" options. This is a great spot to unwind from a week at sea. Enjoy some music and a "cheeseburger in paradise" or John's recommendation, "lobster sauce pasta" at Galloways. Remember dinner is on your own on Friday evening in Boqueron.
Dec 19 Saturday: The boat has arrived back at the dock. Disembarkation is at 8:00 am. We will transport you and your gear back to the airport in San Juan. NOTE: Please schedule flights AFTER 3PM and REMEMBER DAN's recommended waiting period between repetitive diving and flying.
Additional Tours:If you want to book add'l tours after our trip let us know! We'll have a full list of them posted soon.

[quote name='More about Diving Western PR and Mona Island:'] Boat Diving Its ALL Boat Diving and few if ANY day boat operators. The crossing is generally too rough for a small boat. This means the NEKTON has these amazing destinations to itself! Shore Diving There will be no shorediving on this trip as it is a liveaboard offering 4-5 dives daily. Night Diving You can do a night dive every night of the trip that one is possible and we are not doing a crossing or on the last day before departure. Max Depth: 130 ft Water Temp: ave low 80's degrees F Air Temp: high 70's to 80's - degrees. However, water temp can be a degree or so lower than air temp so you may want to bring a boat coat to stay warm between dives.[/quote]

This MUST be set up in advance and paid for in advance. Remember you must be at the airport no later than 5pm if you want to participate in the shared shuttle. (SD will help arrange this with the boat if you let us know you want it and you provide us your flight details.) If you choose to take a private rental car, you must be at the boat no later than 10:00pm.

AIRFARE:

Airfare is not included but there are good fares to San Juan where you need to fly in and out of. If you want SingleDivers.com to book your ticket for you we are happy to do so for a $25 courtesy fee. Also look into booking directly into Mayaquez MAZ. The total air price is cheaper than the shuttle in some cases.

VISA INFORMATION:

Per Nekton's webiste No passport is required for US Citizens to dive either Eastern Puerto Rico or St Croix. If traveling from other countries you will need a passport to enter. You will clear customs in PR and you will need proof of legal identity.

HOW TO BOOK A SPOT ON THIS TRIP:
1. Post in this thread that you plan to join us and advise your check or credit card payment is on its way via our NEW SECURE ONLINE PAYMENT GATEWAY. (SEE PAYMENT LINK BELOW.) You MUST tell us that your payment is coming and when you plan to arrive or we can NOT accept your booking until you do. We'll then put your name on the 'check's in the mail' list. (Please send your pymt asap as we will NOT hold any spots on this trip. Your spot will ONLY BE CONFIRMED when we receive your PAYMENT IN FULL DUE TO TIMING OF THE TRIP.) - To post on the site you need to register as a member of the site. Registration is free or if you want to upgrade, premier membership levels are available for as little as $35 a year and you can get $25 back after the trip as a member rebate. Click here to learn more.
2. Fill out the Trip Rooming & Diving Survey plus the SingleDivers.com Medical Liability Waiver which you'll find under "Stuff you need to know for ALL SingleDivers.com trips & activities!" or click here to link to it. (Send a PM or an email to trips@singledivers.com for the password.). If you cut & paste the Survey into a WORD document and type in your responses, please save it in an older format (.doc, and not .docx) since most of our volunteers have an older version of MS Word, which cannot read Office 7 documents. Alternatively, you can cut & paste the Survey into the body of an email. Send the Survey to trips@singledivers.com, and fax the completed Waiver to(864) 944-6769.
3. Send your deposit for the trip and/or monies due based upon the payment schedule posted below and payment options. If you need to make special arrangements about payments with me please contact kamala@singledivers.com and I'll gladly try to work with you.
4. We need to know what package you are doing as spaces are limited by member choices. We need to know if you need rental gear, and if you want d/o or s/o for any portion of the trip. (Since this is a liveaboard and the s/o fee is prohibitive...we assume you want d/o but please specify to be clear. Also let us know if you are using the shuttle etc. You MUST include as much of this information as possible with your initial reservation. YOU MUST INCLUDE IF YOU ARE USING THE SHUTTLE AND SEND YOUR FLIGHT DETAILS ASAP SO WE CAN ARRANGE THE TRANSFERS FOR YOU!
5. You will also need to verify if you have trip insurance or will be procuring trip insurance or conversely not procuring trip insurance. All participants must have Current Dive Insurance and state one of the following:
a. I have trip insurance that covers this trip already.
b. I will purchase trip insurance to cover this trip.
c. I will not purchase trip insurance and will accept all losses accordingly.
6. Please note that while you may send pm and email requests for availability, the "official" availability is only accurate in the main trip post. For more information on SingleDivers.com, booking policies, etc please read here.

PAYMENT OPTIONS:
SingleDivers.com has implemented a new secure payment gateway that allows you to pay for trips or merchandise using either an e-check which debits your checking account directly without having to mail in a check or debits your credit card without having to fill out a SD.com credit card authorization form. (Please note that any non-US bank originating credit card must still use the paper credit card authorization form as different processing procedures must be followed to process international/non-US credit cards.)

SingleDivers.com provides its members with pricing that reflects all possible cash discounts so any payments via credit card or paypal will still incur a 3% non-cash convenience fee. Our payment gateway which you can access by clicking the PAY SD NOW button below is not a shopping cart and therefore can not total your trip choices nor add the 3% non-cash convenience fee if you are paying via credit card. You will need to enter that data manually to proceed with your payment.


This trip should sell out fairly soon, so in order to ensure timely & accurate processing of payment receipts and therefore timely & accurate acceptance of members onto the trip, ONLY PAYMENTS RECEIVED VIA OUR NEW SECURE PAYMENT GATEWAY WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR NEW PARTICIPANTS ON THIS TRIP!


If you are unable to use the gateway please provide a complete description of the problem/error you are encountering and contact kamala@singledivers.com or 864-557-6079 immediately to manually process your payment for you.

Please add a 3% non-cash convenience fee if paying via paypal or credit card or any non-cash option. Checks, money orders and real cash are discounted already.

International/ Non-US Clients: Please use the traditional written credit authorization form to submit credit card payments. Click here for the form and ask trips@singledivers.com for the password.


PAYMENT TERMS & SCHEDULE:
ASAP: $1595 TRIP PAYMENT AND TRANSFERS & FEES DUE IMMEDIATELY in order to secure a spot. No spot will be secured until money is rec'd via our Secure Payment Gateway.



PROGRESS PAYMENTS:

a. $500 non-refundable deposit due at booking to hold a spot
b. Pay in FULL by Feb 14th 2009 for $75 cash discount taken at time of booking
c. Pay in FULL by April 1st 2009 for CHANCE TO WIN FREE UPGRADE TO SINGLE ROOM AND/OR FREE NITROX!
d. Apr 10, 2009: $500
e. July 10, 2009: $500
f. Oct 10, 2009: $245 + $0 fuel + $20 port + $20 com fee + $125 shuttle fee = $410
d. Nitrox $195 Payable at time of Booking Nitrox on a first paid first served basis

Note: Trip must be paid in full 90 days prior to departure. THEREFORE PAYMENT IS DUE IN FULL IF YOU PLAN TO JOIN US!

TRIP INSURANCE VS GAMBLING LOSSES:

Hey folks if you are gamblers and opt to NOT take out trip insurance during hurricane season that is great! However please understand that the resort/dive operator nor SingleDivers.com can help you out with your gambling losses.

SD.com accepts a huge amount of liability to fill ALL the trips we run OR EAT THE SPOTS. :-D I can assure you that I have paid plenty of gambling losses this year. But I won't gamble with my life (I have both DAN and DIVE ASSURE for Dive Insurance) and I won't gamble with my trips...(I have the annual policy by DIVE ASSURE which covers ALL MY DIVE TRIPS!)

So the choice is yours....bet on no hurricanes, no accidents, no illness, no deaths in the family, no job loss, no immediate death/injury to yourself* ...and laugh in the end when your bet pays off. But when it does not...PLEASE :pray: PLEASE :pray: PLEASE do not expect the resort nor dive operator nor SingleDivers.com to refund your money because your bet did not pan out. :helpsmily:

NOTE: One of the reason's we have you finalize your extras and pay for everything by 30-60 days out is so you have more flexibiity getting trip insurance. Please take a moment TODAY to do this important task. :thankyou:

*If you think it can't happen to you please think again...sadly we just lost a member going on the 10-09 Galapagos trip that MANDATED TRIP INSURANCE and yet sadly he never got it before his tragic demise. :tears:

PLEASE obtain trip insurance - IT IS OPTIONAL BUT STRONGLY RECOMMENDED FOR THIS TRIP ...it is VERY inexpensive and will protect your investment. REMEMBER IF YOU MISS THE BOAT….YOU MISS THE TRIP! You can purchase it right online as well as check quotes etc .

Click here for a free quote or to purchase online!

or

Click here for another provider that provides excellent rates and coverage!


PLEASE obtain DIVE insurance - IT IS MANDATORY FOR THIS TRIP ...it is VERY inexpensive and will protect your investment. Even if you have insurance that you think covers DIVING ACCIDENTS and air lifts…it is CHEAP to get a supplemental policy to ensure you are cared for.

Click here for Diver's Alert Network and use our reference ID 1603080.


or

Click here for Dive Assure where you can get BOTH TRIP & DIVE insurance in one convenient package!

IMPORTANT TRIP UPDATES:

1. School Supplies: As is our tradition we take school supplies on our trips to the under priviledged children of the countries we visit while diving and Western Puerto Rico is no exception. We will have several orphanages to bring relief to. (The boat will be helping us to deliver the school supplies.)
So PLEASE keep your eye out for school supplies on sale as these items are extremely expensive in the countries we visit. Remember a child can play with a can or a box and use great imagination pretending it is a castle, fort, car or space capsule. But they can not make do as well when they need school supplies so that they can learn and better themselves.

2. Check out these reviews: TBA

FAQ - check here often!

Q. What is the earliest I can arrive to the boat?
A. 7pm is the earliest you can arrive.

Q. Where exactly is the boat located if I am getting there on my own?


Q. What is the actual transfer fee from the airport to the boat and back?
A. It is $125 round trip or $62.50 each way.

Q. How long is the shuttle ride to the boat and from the boat to the airport?
A. Depending on stops and traffic approx 3 hour to 3 hours and 30 minutes. (More if there is an accident on the road.)

Q. When is the LATEST I can arrive at the boat?
A. The latest you can arrive at the boat is 10:30pm. So assuming 3 hr 30min shuttle ride and 30 minutes to get off the plane and get your luggage you would need to arrive at the airport by approx 6:30pm which is why the boat says the last shuttle can accommodate flights arriving at or before 6:30 for a 7pm departure.

Q. When does the boat depart?
A. The boat will depart approx 11pm on our day of arrival so it is imperative that everyone arrive before 10:30 pm on the 12th!

Q. If I arrive a day or so early where will the shuttle pick me up?
A. You will need to return to the the USPS Office which is about 20 yds outside of Baggage Claim at the airport. This is where EVERYONE will be met by the driver.

Q. Are there any landbased tours included in the pkg?
A. YES...you will be able to leave the boat during our trip if you wish at at least one island along the way and toodle around. More to be announced.

Q. What is the $20 per person communication fee?
A. In the event that one of us was hurt during the trip the satellite fees usually reach a couple of thousand dollars very rapidly. This fee helps to offset those costs.

Q. Is there a back to back discount for diving 2 weeks in a row?
A. Yes if you dive the week after our trip, the week will be discounted to $TBA There is an even better discount if you wish to stay over Christmas!

Q. What is the non-diver price?
A. We have confirmed it is $100 off or $1645 base price vs $1745 for this trip. (Early payment and premier member discounts still apply so the trip could be a low as $1545 for the base trip.)

Q. What are the water and air temps during Dec?
A. They will be in the low to mid 80's and stay relatively constant. However the water may be a couple of degrees lower than the air temps so you may wish to bring a boat coat to stay warmer between dives. Water temps are expected to be low 80’s.

Hey Kamala,

Is the communication fee refunded if not used? If not why not?

Also I've been doing some online research and want clarification on what they use for the shuttle. Some of the info I've seen was not so positive.

Is there a land tour offered on Mona Island?

Thanks,

Carla

The com fee is just part of the fee structure so there if used or not. Even if not used the service has to be paid for so its available in an emergency.

I can get further info for you but this is a private shuttle that the boat contracts for and its DIFFERENT than the one they used in the early days when they first set up this great new itinerary. This is a bigger/better bus and it is more reasonably priced with better service.

As part of our diving pkg we can get off onto Mona island and toodle around....very :thankyou:

Yes as soon as you pay for nitrox it is yours since there are a limited number of nitrox spots available.

If you faxed the form...its in my fax's memory and I'm going to get the one color ink I do not have 3 boxes of today so it will spew its contents for me. :thankyou:

Just returned from the Nekton Pilot where we saw video and images of the Mona Trip. I must say that this trip will be absolutley FANTASTIC!!!! It may not be the best trip for a beginning diver because of the currents and drift diving from the mother-ship. But anyone up for the callenge will not be dissappointed!

Kamala - This trip would get more attention if it were on the first page!
