EVERY DIVE STARTS WITH A DIVE BRIEFING FROM OUR STAFF

However, as a certified diver, you and your buddy are responsible for planning and conducting your own dives within the limitations set forth by the briefing. Our staff will be on the liveaboard’s dive deck providing surface support for divers. We will also have staff in the water offering support, u/w photography and videography, and critter spotting services as well. On some dive sites a staff member will offer to lead a group and assist them in locating specific points of interest. However we do not offer direct supervision of dives. If you start out with a group, as long as you and your buddy remain in contact with each other and are ok – you may follow your own dive plan. Divers who desire more personal attention and structured/supervised dives should consider taking one of our numerous specialty courses. An underlying skill featured in all of specialty training is planning, executing, and debriefing after your dive in order to build a more confident diver

A full line of Aqua Lung rental gear is available aboard including regulators, BCs, dive computers, and night-lights. If any of your dive equipment fails while onboard, the crew will loan you equipment free of charge, compliments of Aqua Lung.

Several diving specialty courses are offered onboard including Nitrox, Advanced Open Water, UW Photography, Master Diver and more. .

The Okeanos Aggressor yachts offer a complete digital photo facility including a PC for downloading photos. The Photo pro is available for free coaching with equipment rental. Photo equipment is available to rent separately or as a complete set up. They have a strobe charging station and a large camera table available for your camera and video equipment.
