This is a 2 tank diving experience out at the Catalinas. We meet at 7.25am at the dive shop to complete paperwork and get you ready with mask, fins and appropriate wetsuit. BCD, tanks and weights will already be on the boat. All equipment rental is included, but if you have any of your own equipment and would like to use it, then you are more than welcome to bring it along and dive with it. We then make our way to the boat and head out to the Catalinas. It is around 30-40 minutes to the dives sites. During the journey out, you will be given a thorough dive briefing from your instructor guide. We drop down and dive on a site for around 40-45 minutes, then return to the boat for a surface interval. During the time on the surface we take in some light snacks and refreshments, discuss the marine life and sights from the previous dive, and relax. Your tanks will be changed over for you and you will receive a second briefing about
the second site. After the surface interval we will drop down on a different sight for the second of the two dives. Again dive time is around 40-45 minutes. We then return back to the marina. Depending on the ocean conditions and the sites visited, we are generally back around 12-12.30pm.
At One Love we ensure that the PADI professional guiding your dive is at a minimum level of a PADI Instructor. Groups are generally 1-4 divers per dive guide (bookings can be made to accommodate groups consisting of larger numbers if required). This instructor guided experience includes all equipment rental, and light snacks and refreshments on the tour.
To participate divers must be a fully certified diver with any of the recognized recreational scuba diving certification agencies, and have their certification card and/or logbook with them. Their certification card can be either an actual card or an eCard. No proof of license means no diving. It is possible with some certifying agencies to search for a diver's certification within the agency's website. However, this is not available with every certifying agency and can have a wildly varying success rate. Best bet… bring your card.
Divers will also complete a Liability Release and Assumption of Risk Agreement. Affirming that they are a certified diver who fully understands the risks associated with scuba, and that they are in good mental and physical fitness to participate in scuba diving.
