In our opinion yes, it's only $30 more than paying for 2 local dives and offers something different. However it does need to be very calm to get there so is not accessible all year.

Troy, we have around 20 dive sites in total, but access to them is weather dependent so would have to be assessed at the time. We aim to avoid repeating dive sites for customers when possible.
