ITINERARY: 8 DAY PROGRAM

DAY A: Fly Boise to Miami, overnight in Miami.

DAY 1: Fly to Curacao, transfer to Habitat. Get a good nights sleep.

DAY 2: Possible scuba and/or snorkeling refresher course. Complete two open water dives toward your PADI open water certification class with the proper signed PADI referral and medical forms. Complete your final two open water dives toward your PADI open water certification class on DAY 3. Non-divers will have the opportunity to try scuba diving. Curacao is interesting, fun and easy to dive from shore or from a boat.

DAYS 2,3,4,5,6,7: Each morning we will board our dive boats at the pier and head out for a standard (8:15 am to 1 pm) day of diving to a variety of beautiful sites. Although we will dive well within the decompression limits, a shallow reef shelf follows by a steep drop-off plunging down to 150 feet, then a gentler slope down to who-knows-where. Water temperatures range from 77 degrees F in the winter to 82 degrees F in the summer. Visibility is a consistent 80 - 150 feet with little or no current. On the land side of things you'll find a sunny upper 80's everyday year round with a refreshing easterly breeze. Non-divers will have the chance to go snorkeling, beach combing, tanning or island exploring. Non-Divers can pay to snorkel from the boats.

DAY 8: Early morning departure and enough time to say good bye to our newly found friends. Fly Curacao to Boise or to your home. We will have waited at least 18 to 24 hours since our last dive before we fly.

VERY SPECIAL VALUE: Ocean Reef Ecology Diving Specialty is included. Two dives are required under the supervision of the instructor. If you have already obtained the Ocean Reef Ecology Diving Specialty, then the diver may substitute another two dive specialty. If the other specialty has more than two dives then an appropriate additional cost will be collected, at $25 per dive. Other specialties will be available at a reasonable cost, see attached list of prices.

These include: enriched air nitrox, fish identification, multilevel, underwater photography and advanced underwater photography, underwater video, research diving, boat diving, wreck diving, deep, current, search and recovery, night and hunting and collecting.

EVERYBODY: All Open Water certified divers qualified for PADI Advanced Open Water Diver on our last tropical trip to Cozumel, October 1998. All Open Water certified divers will qualified for PADI Advanced Open Water Diver on this tropical trip to Curacao, October 1999. If you wish to be awarded the PADI Advanced certificate you need to notify the PADI Master Instructor (Phil) on the trip so he can brief you thoroughly before each dive. You will need to finish the reading and homework portion of the text prior to completion of your certification.

PADI Open water diver, advanced, advanced plus, rescue, divemaster and assistant instructor continuing education certifications will be offered at a very reasonable cost. Please sign up with your registration in order for the correct books and materials to be available on site in Curacao.
