NOTE ON TROPICAL TRIPS
The only time we need to charge extra on credit card payments, is on our trips. No other time.
Due to rising costs and higher transaction fees, it’s an additional 4% when paying by credit card as of Jan, 1, 2022.
You can avoid these fees by simply paying with cash or check.
(This helps us keep our tradition of offering great trips at the best prices!)
Thank you!
Meet our new mascot.
He is quite old, yet full of dive wisdom.
Especially for a 3D printed Scuba Jedi.
And he should be available for purchase soon!
