Ocean Dive Trips

Underwater scenes like these are why most tourists visit the Tukang Besi Archipelago  Diving on Wakatobi's outstanding coral reefs

Join us on our next adventure! Group ocean trips are great not only because of the price, but you will be diving with people you know. You will also have one of our experienced instructors or divemasters on the trip – John has been traveling throughout the Caribbean and Pacific for 40 years. John is the only certified travel guide in Central Illinois for tours to the far Pacific.  As group leaders, they can determine dive sights and advise on land tours, restaurants, etc. We also have opportunities to share pictures, trip video, and memories at home. We can also arrange trips to many locations at a time that is better for your schedule. Please check with us as we can often give you a better price.

For dive insurance go to www.diveassure.com.  Refer us as your dive center for better service.  For exotic travel and most complete coverage Diveassure or DAN insurance is recommended.
