Upon arrival you will be led aboard and receive your boat briefing whilst your evening meal is being prepared. During dinner you have the chance to meet your fellow divers for the week and chat about the reefs you’re likely to visit.
The following morning after breakfast Blue Pearl aims to leave port between 8am and 9am, but departure time is in the hands of the coast guard so please allow an hour either way.
Once the diving is underway your weeks schedule is roughly as follows:
Day 1 – 2 to 3 dives
Days 2 to 5 - up to 4 dives (non Marine Parks)
Days 2 to 5 - up to 3 dives (Marine Parks)
Day 6 – 2 dives
For the Blue Planet fleet of liveaboards there are a few restrictions and some recommendations on dive qualification and logged dives.
North & Wrecks – 20 logged dives, open water or equivalent (recommended)
St Johns – 30 logged dives, advanced open water or equivalent, (recommended)
Marine Parks such as Brothers, Daedalus, Zabargad & Rocky require a minimum of 50 logged dives and advanced open water or equivalent.
