Hot Dive Deals

 

Divers helping Others!

To assist in Hurricane relief efforts, for every new dive package booked to Cobalt Coast Resort, Cayman Brac Beach Resort, or Little Cayman Beach Resort - Clearly Cayman Will Donate $100 to relief efforts. Valid for reservations made by October 18, 2017

 

Galapagos Sky: Dive To Make A Difference. Galapagos Sky is donating 100% of the proceeds from our May 13-20, 2018 and February 24-March 03, 2019 departures to the Charles Darwin Foundation for conservation and research in Galapagos!

 

STORM UPDATES

Dominica

Buddy Dive Dominica and Hotel Ft. Young -- All guests of the hotel have been evacuated. All staff is safe and accounted for. Although the hotel has sustained extensive damage, they are operating a minimal service for aid and relief workers. At this point the hotel and dive shop is closed for the immediate future. The main focus is on basic needs and communication is still limited. Our team will need some time to assess the damage and situation.

Castle Comfort Lodge and Dive Dominica -- There were no guests or divers in-house during the Hurricane. Daniel Perryman had taken the boats to safety in St. Lucia prior to the storm, so the boats are undamaged. He returned to Dominica as soon as it was safe, to bring relief supplies and to evacuate Ari, her baby, and others who had remained on the Island. As far as we know, all staff and their families are safe, though many have homes that are inhabitable. It will likely be several more weeks before they are fully able to assess the extent of the restoration efforts needed for the Lodge, dive shop, their homes and supporting island infrastructure. They are anticipating that they will remain closed for the remainder of 2017 and most of 2018.

 

Turks and Caicos

Dive Provo -- We are pleased to report that Dive Provo plans on resuming diving as of October 14th. Dive Provo's boats and staff are safe and sound. No damage to the shop or office. They still have no power over at the shipyard on the south side, but they do at Turtle Cove. One of the compressors needs a new electric motor because salt water has gotten into it. The other compressor there they have had running and all seems fine, so they can start pumping air and Nitrox tanks.
Royal West Indies -- will be closed through October 31, 2017.   We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you are scheduled to arrive anytime between October 6 - 31, 2017 you have 2 options: 1) Change your arrival date, to any time after November 1, 2017 (subject to availability and some restrictions apply). 2) Cancel your reservation arriving anytime between October 1-31, 2017 without penalty.
