Ocean Dive Trips

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

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.  See Aggressor specials at the bottom! 

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.

 Anthony’s Key, Roatan, Honduras, March 31 – April 7, 2018
 We are returning for another trip to Anthony’s Key.  Book early to the room you want.     Prices range from $1619 to $2249 plus 19% tax.  But wait that is for two divers.  First person pays and the 2nd one goes for free.  So price works out to be as low as $963.31 per person for a standard hillside room and $1296.51 per person for a superior Key .  Nondiver rate is less!  About half the spaces have been spoken for by return customers!

This all inclusive resort will be celebrating it’s 50th year of serving customers.  All meals are included, three boat dives per day for the divers and unlimited shore diving.  Book early to request  your desired lodging.  Also available are dolphin show, snorkel, and/or dive, shark dive, zip line excursion, and more.  There is an extra charge for these excursions although you may see dolphins and sharks on your regular dives.  Airline prices are  available and I would suggest booking as early as possible.   






In the spring of 2016 we had 26 travelling to Anthony’s Key and we had to turn some customers away as the resort filled up.  Call John on how to purchase your tickets at the best possible price out of Peoria!
