Alaska Dive Training, Equipment, and Travel

Group Travel

Dive Alaska is pleased to offer a diving itinerary full of fun and adventure!

Are you a travel specialist? Dive shop owner? Or someone with a bunch of friends who wants to organize a group trip to Alaska? Dive Alaska is happy to organize customized group packages to fit your vision. We offer a 15% commission for groups of 6 or more, and we offer a FREE spot for the group leader with 9 paying customers. We can offer full all-inclusive packages which include transportation, diving, and non-diving activities, or customize a trip which allows you to make the plans. We have posted an example itinerary below to illustrate some of the options.

Saturday: You’ll arrive in Anchorage where an airport shuttle will transport you to your Hotel.  After getting settled in, our staff will pick you up and transport you to Dive Alaska’s shop, where we will go over a trip briefing as well as fitting any needed rental gear. We’ll have a great restaurant recommendation for you, then it’s back to the hotel for rest and relaxation for the evening.

Sunday: It’s “all aboard!” for the Alaskan Railroad. This scenic train ride will comfortably transport you to Seward in style with the best views Alaska has to offer. You’ll travel along Turnagain Arm on your way up into Grandview train picMountain pass where mountain vistas will thrill you!  Once you arrive in Seward the day is yours, feel free to explore, shop, and enjoy the many beautiful attractions Seward has to offer. Visit the Seward Sea life Center Aquarium to preview the underwater realm which awaits you. Accommodations for the night will be provided at Hotel Seward’s “historic” wing.

Bottom Time

Monday- Friday: The diving adventure begins! You will step aboard the Bottom Time, Dive Alaska’s 43 ft. Delta Marine Charter boat. The Bottom Time comfortably accommodates up to 12 divers and is outfitted with a diving platform, dive ladder, warm, fresh water shower, heated cabin and gear rinsing station.

Dive sites will be chosen based on experience level and weather. Seward is home to numerous beautiful sites with plenty of marine life to see. We’ll start out at a sight which will allow you to get your weighting right and “knock the rust off” those dry suit skills if you’d like, then progress to our many walls where buoyancy control is a must. We work with each group to assure that the dive sites chosen are appropriate to experience and skill level.

Each afternoon after diving, you’ll return to Seward where you’ll enjoy hiking, wildlife viewing or simply kicking back and relaxing for the evening.

Friday evening: You’ll spend one more night in Seward to unwind, take a well-deserved hot shower, and enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants. We’ll store your dive gear for you in our locked, enclosed trailer, so you don’t have to lug it around.
