Charter Policy

You MUST have a dive watch or computer, a dive knife or tool and a snorkel on your person to dive on our charter. You need the timing device to plan your dive and to time your dive at depth to avoid DCS. You need a dive knife or tool to cut through the monofiliment fishing line that is endemic to the wrecks off of our coast. Should you come up away from the boat without air in your tank, a snorkel is necessary to protect your airway. Should you need either, we have both for sale in our shop and computer rentals are $20.00 each.

All divers must complete the following forms before being allowed to dive on any Charleston scuba charter. Emergency contact information MUST be provided and MUST be a person not going on the charter.
