This page displays charters that we
have currently scheduled. This information is
displayed real-time from our computerized reservation system.
Although these dive trips
change by the minute, this can act as a guide to better aid you in
booking your charters. All the scheduled charters are started by divers,
like you, wanting to dive a specific site on a specific date. If you do not see a charter to a dive site or in a time
slot you are looking for, give us a call. With the flexibility of
Aquatic Safaris boats, chances are we can accommodate you.
Please call if you would like to book a dive trip.

It only takes one person to start a charter!!
Charter Policy: (Dive shops & clubs should contact Aquatic Safaris
for group rates and details) Reservations: Reservations
will be accepted and secured with a valid credit card. Reservations
are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Charter Minimums: On the 36' ASII we must have 8 people to run a charter
up to 18 miles offshore and at least 10 to run beyond. On the 48' ASI
we must have 12 people to run any charter. Dive Site Destination Change Policy: If the weather does not permit a dive
charter to a scheduled off-shore site (>25miles) and a more
in-shore dive charter is possible to at least 18miles, the charter
will run to the alternate location. The customer will be charged for
the actual dive site. Cancellation Policy: Your cancellation policy is
based on your group size and destination and is specified in your confirmation email.
There is no charge if you change your reservation before your cancellation date.
If you cancel your charter reservation or decrease your group size inside the cancellation
policy, you are fully responsible for the charter spot(s) unless we can rebook your spot(s)
with another diver. Charter sites further than 25 miles off shore add 5 days to the cancellation period.
Group size 1-5: There is no penalty for cancellations received by noon 5 days prior to departure.
Group size 6-11: There is no penalty for cancellations received by noon 7 days prior to departure.
Group size 12-15: There is no penalty for cancellations received by noon 14 days prior to departure.
Group size 16 or more: There is no penalty for cancellations received by noon 21 days prior to departure.
We cannot guarantee sea conditions or visibility. We will
make every effort to get you to the chosen site, however the captain
has the right to change the destination or the number of dives for
the safety of the passengers and vessel. If an alternative dive site
is chosen, divers will be prorated to the destination. Divers who
fail to dive due to seasickness or other causes (no show, equipment
issues, etc) are responsible for the cost of the charter. There is no
charge if we must cancel for any reason, such as weather conditions.
Cancellations are not accepted over email or voice mail- they must be
done with Aquatic Safaris staff over the phone. Charter NO SHOW: If you no show for a charter, you are responsible for the cost of the charter + 15% crew tip.
Also, if you rented tanks there is a $10/tank transportation fee for lugging your tanks to the boat and back. Equipment: Charter prices include boat transportation only. Divers are responsible for providing their own equipment or can make arrangements with us for rental gear. Rental tanks and/or weights you reserved for your charter will be on the dive boats. All other rental gear is to be picked up/returned to the Aquatic Safaris dive shop. The shop opens at least one hour before the charter if you need to pickup rental gear. Certification cards: C-Cards will be collected on the boat by the crew and returned at the dock. Unless
you are Jacques Cousteau, you will not be allowed to dive without a
certification card. No exceptions! If you show up without a
c-card, you will still be responsible for the cost of the charter and
may ride on the boat.
booking a charter, the customer agrees to these terms.
