A variety of routes, to many to mention
Depending on the region, the sea and weather conditions, there are different ways of visiting the high light dive locations. During your trip the guides will decide together with the captain what the best route is so that we not only visit the best dive sites, but also stay comfortable during sailing and most importantly stay safe.
In the following a series of routes that we can organize. Are you interested to charter the boat? Then we can tailor the route according to your needs and desires.

|Cabins||Unless you book for 2 persons, or book a private cabin, you will be sharing a cabin with one of our other guests.
