Alaska Dive Training, Equipment, and Travel

Dive Trips

dive-boat1

After almost two decades of diving experience in Alaska, our instructors and guides know some of the best places in the state to dive, both around Anchorage and on the Kenai Peninsula. Any boats we use or charter are inspected by the US Coast Guard annually, and we always limit ourselves to 12 divers. On boat dives, we keep a self-deploying life raft, EPIRB, oxygen, first aid, and all emergency supplies on-board. Our staff are CPR and first-aid certified—and in many cases, first-aid instructors. Above all else, we value the safety of our divers.

A typical day of diving with us:
You’ll meet us at the dive shop prior to your trip so you can check out your gear. Unless other arrangements have been made, you’ll be responsible for your gear from the time you leave the shop until the time you return it to the shop. The boat charter is a separate deal. Unlike our warm water counterparts, we generally travel  about two hours south to reach our dive boat or entry site. If you choose to provide your own transportation to Seward/Whittier, where most of our dives launch from, we’ll meet you at 9:30 AM at the agreed upon location. After you sign the liability release and check your gear, we’ll head out to the dive site somewhere in Resurrection Bay. The captain will choose a site capable of providing the right level of challenge to those divers on board, and after about an hour underway you’ll be splashing for your first dive. We’ll spend about an hour between dives, while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate or tea, before jumping back in for the second dive. Our average dive depths are about 80 and 50 feet respectively, but we let you manage your own dives unless a dive guide is specifically requested. On the way back to the harbor, we’ll watch for whales, bald eagles, mountain goats, dall porpoise, sea lions, and sea birds of all kinds. Most of our boats will have a warm shower for after your dives, and a fresh water rinse tank for your gear.

We care about your safety, and we’re excellent at managing risk. In order to provide the best service we can to you, we require that all divers who dive with us have diver insurance. There are NO decompression chambers in Alaska, and an air ambulance to Seattle is VERY expensive. If you’d like to sign up with DAN click this link and protect your most valuable asset…YOU.Join DAN
