If you decide you want a guide for a particular dive site or that you’d benefit from a dive refresher, we can have your own private dive boat rendezvous with you to take you diving. If you choose this service, we will discount half a day’s equipment rental fee.
The historic wreck of the RMS Rhone is one such dive where our renters feel they really benefit from using a guide. Our experienced guides are familiar with every inch of the ship and can point out all the artifacts that lie scattered around the wreck. They also tell a very good story about how she went down in the Great Hurricane of 1867!
Rendezvous diving rates are as follows:
$350 for one diver
$175 each for two divers
$135 each for three divers
$135 each for four or more divers (max 6)

We cannot deliver your equipment to you if your boat briefing is in progress. Not only can this cause us uneccessary delays, but it can also make us late delivering equipment elsewhere. When deciding upon your equipment delivery time, please double-check with your boat charter company at what time they will be giving your briefing and ensure that the equipment delivery time you quote us does not coincide.
Our rental fees include one free delivery and one free pick up. If you are not able to accept your equipment or return it at the agreed time, or if you wish to cancel your reservation, we require at least two hours notice or we reserve the right to levy a $25 charge (each way) to cover our administrative costs.
Thanks for your cooperation !
