We run DSDs every morning alongside our two-tank morning dive charters. After checking in at our dive shop at 8 a.m., we meet at the harbor at 8:15am and launch at 8:30am. We are usually back to the harbor around 1pm.

If you’re pressed for time, we can also do a 1-tank DSD from shore!  Check-in at our dive shop at 8 a.m. and be back before lunchtime.

Give us a call to book your adventure! To join us for a DSD, please review the PADI Medical Statement. If you answer YES to any of the medical questions, you will need a physician’s approval before any in-water activities.


$250 per person includes private instruction from our boat.

“I've wanted to do this for years and it was as amazing as I had hoped. We were in the water for 45-60 minutes, with mantas right beneath us nearly the whole time, gracefully looping and over and over, often coming within a foot (or closer!)”
