Our charters are run on weekends and weekdays, diver numbers and weather permitting. We need a minimum of four divers to run a charter.
All charters include are double dives, offering you two dives at sites such as the HMAS Perth wreck or on our reef/island sites such as Seal Cove, The Cables or the Cheynes III. Where we dive is decided by the skipper based on weather conditions so that we can give you the best possible dive for the day. Wherever we can we take divers to their preferred dive sites.
Divers meet at the dive store on Serpentine Road (directly behind the Caltex fuel station at the top of York St) at 7.30am to finalise any payments, complete waivers and fit out equipment if required (It is preferable that any equipment hire is arranged prior to the day of the Charter). When all is complete and equipment is loaded onto the boat, we travel down to the Albany Town Jetty Marina and boat ramp, which is about 5mins drive away, to launch the boat.
During our surface interval of 1 hr minimum we offer hot drinks, soups and biscuits. We generally return from our charters about 1.30pm.
