Itinerary

The group will meet at the boat ramp, leaving Florida at around 7am on the Saturday morning. Parking is available on site or force e at the rear.

The boat will stop at West End passport control where the captain will sort the paper work and customs where you will be met by your dive guide Leigh Cobb. 

The boat will then travel straight to Tiger Beach. After diving we will travel to the hotel in the evening where the guests can have dinner and rest before an early start on Sunday.

We will travel out to Tiger Beach again and once all the dives for the day are finished the boat will return to the pick up point in Florida.


NOTE : With 6 divers, bait, 12 tanks, diving gear, cameras bags etc etc the boat is VERY tight. Please do not bring hard cases, pelican cases etc, only backpacks. Hard cases will not be allowed on the boat. We do need to be considerate to each other and load and unload the boat together. You only need 1 nights clothes, and limited toiletries. This is not a liveaboard boat so it does not have dive deck etc. She is a 28ft centre console, two 250mph outboard engines, the crossing can be cold and very wet so please bring waterproof and warm clothes to snuggle up on the beanbags for the trip over. it generally takes 2 hours or so, sometimes slightly longer depending upon the ocean. its a small price to pay for the incredible diving we will have, but please be aware its not a comfortable trip.
