Upcoming Trips

We are taking deposits for the 2019 dive season. We have tentatively set the following weekends for Sat/Sunday diving
June 7-10, 2019 (Arrive Friday, leave Sunday after diving)
July 4-7, 2019 (Arrive Thursday, leave Sunday after diving) No diving on Thursday – Fireworks!!
This will be the annual Cooper River Crawlers Reunion
August 23-25, 2019 (arrive Friday, leave Sunday after diving)

We have also set a couple week day trips for those with a more felxible schedule
May 6-9, 2019 (arrive Monday, leave Thursday after diving)
September 9-11, 2019 (arrive Monday, leave Wednesday after diving)

That’s 6 planned trips, I anticipate that we will run the 4 dates that the majority want. If we can fill all 6 we will run all 6.

We are also talking about making the trips 3 days – Fri/Sat/Sun or Sat/Sun/Mon.  Please provide some feedback if you think this is doable for you.

Each trip includes two dives from the boat (up to 90 minutes each), lodging (dive lodge style, bring your own linens) and unlimited Shore dives plus a T-Shirt for first timers, breakfast and lunch.  If you have a long drive it may be possible to arrange to stay an additional night for a small charge.

Tank rental is available (we recommend 100’s for a 90 min dive). You will need at least 2 for each day of diving. Fills are also available. We don’t return once we leave in the morning so you will need all your gear, tanks, etc. for the day.

Bring a river pick, collection bag, knee pads and a VERY bright light (900 lumens or better) and a backup light. (no light, no dive because you won’t be able to see anything). A SeaLife Mini 900 is a great start and can be paired with the Arm and Hand Strap to free up your hands for picking up your finds. If you have a Sealife Camera package with the Video Light you can attach a Flex Connect handle and have a great light for a trip like this. Just be sure to attach a wrist lanyard so you don’t lose it.
