Once you get certified, a whole new world opens up for you to explore. Whether you dive in local lakes, quarries and ponds or you wander to the far corners of the earth, there is underwater adventure awaiting you. And oh for the opportunity to see what is below! We have been assisting divers for thirty years in finding a dive destination that suits their needs. We offer group travel (and this is a great way to make new friends - many who travel together year after year) and individual trips. We try to offer 3 or 4 international dive trips each year and fill in with offshore South Carolina, Lake Jocassee, wreck diving the Graveyard of the Atlantic to meet the needs of those who prefer local diving. We also welcome dive-alongs on our openwater training trips to the Florida springs during the colder months. Ms. Merriweather offers a mystery trip every other year and has lots of repeat divers who don't even want to know the location until they arrive. Whenever you decide on a dive destination, give us a chance to help you plan your trip!
Unexpected events can occur at any time and cause delays or even cancellation of your vacation. We strongly recommend that you protect your vacation investment with trip insurance. Any trips leaving the country will require a valid Passport for participation, Even to the Bahamas.
