We will provide: • Nitrox is available at extra cost (we encourage you to dive with it as it is safer and allows us to maximize the bottom time to see more and for longer) • Compressors and diving equipment are stored in the Dhoni, meaning that there is no noise pollution for guests while bottles are re-filled between dives.

Experienced divers can dive independently after the check dive. Insurance Diving insurance is not included on board and it is strongly recommended that you have it.
