What Documentation do I Bring?

As documentation requirements sometimes change and vary with visitor nationalities, you alone are responsible for ensuring that you have the proper documentation required for your entry into the foreign destination and your return. Please double check that you have valid documentation prior to booking your cruise.

What Should I back on my dive trip?
Submitted by M19203
Your vacation is designed to be fun, relaxing and very casual. You will be most comfortable in lightweight, casual clothes and beach wear. You will most likely spend most of your days in swim wear, shorts and T-shirts. Light cover-up clothing, sunglasses and wide brimmed hat will protect you from tropical sun. Since the evenings can get cool, we also recommend a wind breaker or sweatshirts and light pair of long pants. A visit to your local dive shop for annual equipment overhaul and inspection is a good idea.
