About Splashdown Dive Charters
The deck is wide and clear for you to easily move about.
And, with half of the deck covered by an extended hardtop,
you can be in the sun or the shade --- it's your choice.
Splashdown was made to be comfortable.
The feeling of being on a custom dive boat continues as you go below deck to the dry cabin area. Here you will find a clean and roomy marine head that even includes a hot water shower.
Splashdown is actually fast enough to pull water skiiers! We like to get to our dive sites quickly. If you are not in your wetsuit by the time weleave the inlet, we may be on site before you can get geared up :-).
Hour Long Dives
Most of our divers spend the majority of their time on the inshore ledges or reef crowns ( where turltes are found), meaning depths as deep as 55 or 60 feet, or as shallow as 37 to 40 feet. The reef crown is actually not that wide, so some divers will begin on the 90 foot deep offshore ledge--the Fingers...and then swim up onto the crown and across to the inshore ledge after 10 to 20 minutes at 90....Our divers are advanced, and they have an hour to do whatever profile they like :-)
Special Family Snorkel Trips
Particularly during Weekdays in summer, we have some amazing spots for your family! Call ahead, and we'll discuss the ages of the kids, ad where the best sites would be!
Stable boat in high seas
We are lucky to have lots of calm dive days, particularly in summer. If weather kicks up while we are out, Splashdown is a remarkably stable boat....and has even run many trips all the way to the Bahamas!.
Our divers are fun loving and friendly
After more than 20 years, Splashdown has a certain kind of diver it attracts. Happy people, social, sightseers and photographers.....People that enjoy other fun people. We don't cater to Instructors and students, as that can ruin the dive for our advanced divers.
No spearfishing. Lobster diving, absolutely :-)
Too many of our divers don't like to see someone "shooting Bambi"...so we don't allow it EXCEPT on trips ONLY for spearfisherman..
