O/W DEPTHS, 3 TANKS: This is a boat charter suitable for ALL divers, but dedicated for the newer/Open Water-level diver! Come join Tiffany and her newly certified sister Stacey and brother-in-law Andrew in beautiful Point Loma, land of sea cliffs and nudibranchs. :)
The boat provides steel LP 85s and weights. Air compressor is on-board. You may bring your own tank if you prefer, but be sure to email Waterhorse at firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know.
Nitrox tanks are not filled on board but can be arranged in advance for an extra charge.
You provide all other gear. (If needed, rentals can be reserved with the boat when you sign their online liability form.)
FOOD and SHOWER: The boat also provides great snacks in-between dives. Hot, fresh-water shower on deck.
BUDDIES: If you don't have a buddy you may team up with another single on boat. However, do not think your buddy will be responsible for you or your diving. You must have good skills and habits to dive at these events.
LIMITED LOAD (18) COST: $135.27
To make reservations: Simply RSVP here (first) then pay via the PayPal link above on this page (safe and secure... we've used it for years).

6 FATHOMS: This neighbor to the more well-known 7 fathoms sits 50-60 feet, with bit of structure and fun animals!
NEW HOPE ROCK: A beautiful spot with large rock formations making the dive 20-45 feet. Start below to find critters in the cracks and work your way up.
CAPTAIN'S CHOICE: Suitable depth. Goal Posts, perhaps?

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is not organizer's role to lead your dive. The Organizer will not assign you a buddy nor will he/she be leading the dive as a "group dive". (Visibility and liability do not allow for that.) Nor will the Organizer tell you whether you are skilled enough for a dive. (You must decide that by yourself or with a dive pro.) You must plan and execute your dives with your dive buddy. Once members arrive, the Organizer becomes simply another diver.
Your participation is your affirmation you agree to these above rules and disclaimers.... and that your buddy(s) (if applicable) has read and agrees to the same.
