Trip cancellation insurance is strongly recommended.  This insurance will cover your costs if the trip has to be cancelled because of a storm or even in the event of losing days of diving or snorkeling due to high winds/waves and the port is closed.  Contact JoAnn for trip insurance options.  It is also strongly recommended that all divers have diver medical insurance.

Rental dive gear is available from MadisonScuba at our special weekly rate or the Anthony’s Key Resort dive shop.  By renting from us, you will know exactly what you will be getting, that it is well maintained, and that it fits.  Plus, no weight belts.  High quality snorkeling gear is available for purchase at our shop.

MadisonScuba takes small groups on our trips to make the trip more personable and to give people the opportunity to get to know each other.  We will have a pre-trip get-together to meet each other and answer any of your questions.

Your MadisonScuba escort will be JoAnn, who is a dive instructor.   Let her know if you want to earn any diving specialties like Boat Diving, Deep, and/or Night and Limited Viz Specialties.  We can complete the classroom portion(s) before we leave and sign off on your two dives (three for Deep more than 60’) in Roatan.

Boat trips to get to the reef are typically from 5-30 minutes and we will spend our surface intervals back at the Resort.  How awesome is that?

Are you excited now?  I know we are!  Here’s what you need to do.  Mail or drop off your deposit of $500 per person at the shop to reserve your place.  If you pay by credit card, please add 3%.  Your second deposit of $500 is due November 1, 2017 and the final balance is due February 1, 2018.  Any cancellations are subject to loss of deposit and other fees.

Please let us know if you need/would like a roommate.  We will do our best to arrange that.
