Upcoming Trips

Tentative dates for 2020. 

Weekday trip (less traffic on the river) set for June 9 through 12 (Tuesday through Friday)

A weekend trip set for August 7-9 (Friday-Sunday)

The cost for each diver per day is $225 and in all inclusive.  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 continental breakfast, lunch, dinner and water/snacks on the boat.  If you have a long drive it may be possible to arrange to stay an additional night for a small charge.  The cost does NOT include tank rental or fills or any equipment rental.

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.
