Your trip starts with you arriving at Getaway Marina between 5:00pm-6:30pm. We will give you a boat briefing, and leave the dock around 7:00pm. You will have a 12-hour cruise to dream of the diving you will be doing in the remote, pristine waters of “The Dry Tortugas“.
Arrive at 7:00 am on your first dive site, breakfast will be served (before or after your dive, your choice). Then we will continue to move to different dive sites throughout the day. (Plan on 6-8 sites per day). You can pick and choose which sites you’d like to dive! Most dive sites average between 40-80 feet, we can customize to your abilities. Lunch and dinner will be worked into your schedules.
Will consist of the same type of schedule. A visit to “Fort Jefferson National Monument” can also be worked into your itinerary.
You will wake up anchored to the “Baja California“, a World War ll transport ship built in 1914. The 266-foot steamship was carrying a general cargo that included tobacco when it was torpedoed just forward of midships by the German submarine U-84 on July 19, 1942. The main wreckage now sits in 115 feet of water off Naples.
