Hello, we will be on Oahu in March. My daughter, husband, and I want to dive. My daughter will be 12 and is a certified junior diver. She has approximately 15 dives. Do you charge extra or require a private dive master for junior divers?

Response from ReefPirates | Property representative |
Aloha Sarah, No, we do not charge extra for Jr divers. Please note however that our morning dives are scheduled as 70+ feet so a Jr diver would not be allowed on the morning charter.
