They are equipped with the necessary safety equipment according to national and international standards. This includes oxygen, a maintained first aid kit, VHF marine radios, life jackets and navigation equipment.
Our very experienced and friendly crew will take you safely and comfortably to the best dive sites. Our Captain Vicente always has a smile on his face and knows the Caribbean Sea like no other…
The boat leave twice a day, at 8:30 in the morning and at 13:00 in the afternoon. We do two-tank dives. We also offer night dives. It takes between 5 and 25 minutes to reach the dive sites.
Fresh-water Rinse Tanks & Drying Area
The dive center is equipped with two large fresh water rinse tanks (one for dive gear and one dedicated for regs, computers and cameras only). Adjacent to the rinse tanks is a fresh water shower to rinse the salt off of your skin and a drying area to hang your gear to dry.Wet Room
Your valuable dive equipment is safe in our large and spacious dry room. This dedicated storage area is well ventilated so that your gear can dry before your departure. Our personnel keep a watchful eye on your equipment.
Tanks and Rental Equipment
Our tanks and rental equipment are up to the same high standards. We don’t like rusty, banged-up tanks and gear that’s falling apart, so we use nothing but the best.
We have our own 80 cubic ft / 12 ltr. aluminum tanks. True to the Dune philosophy of “safety first”, all cylinders are tested in accordance with international cylinder testing guidelines. Regular valve servicing and visual inspections are just a few of the rigorous in house test procedures that equipment must go through. Hydrostatic testing are conducted out of house by an international accredited inspection company. All tanks can be used as DIN/INT connections.
Nitrox is Available
We offer Nitrox diving, a great way to go since most of the diving here is ideal for Nitrox. If you would like to try but lack Nitrox certification, we offer the PADI Enriched Air Diver course.
