All pool sessions are offered at the hotel pool. Until further notice, local ocean dives are conducted from an alternate location. Transportation takes approximately 20 minutes and will be organized and paid at the dive center only for a fee of US$40 for up to 4 guests. This means, if only one couple is diving, they will pay US$20 per person. Our team on site will schedule divers to dive together as much as possible to reduce this cost.
