These dives take divers out on a boat to a destination. Recommended that divers are comfortable taking a giant stride or a back roll entrance into the water.
This type of dive will take a diver deeper than 18 meters (59 feet), and most will go to 30 meters (98 feet) or more beneath the surface. There is unique marine life at great depths that can only be seen on deep dives.
These massive rays are mesmerizing to watch, often curious and not scared of divers. These dives offer a high probability of manta ray sightings.
Coral reefs are beautiful and endangered ecosystems bursting with life and color, and offer the most popular type of dive.
