Daily dive schedule and location will be posted on the board at the dive deck. We will have a general dive briefing at the muster station before each dive. Do note that Gaia Love offers NO DECOMPRESSION DIVES.
Each diver will be allocated their own ‘dive station’ which hold your scuba gear. The crew will load your scuba unit onto the skiffs prior to the dive and unload it after the dive, to be placed back in your station for a refill. At your individual station, storage compartments are provided. To avoid any confusion, make sure that all your personal items is placed in your own compartments. Prior to each dive please check that your scuba gear is set up properly, valve is on and you have air to breath!
It is mandatory for each diver to have a dive computer and a SMB (surface marker buoy). If you need a lesson or two in deployment of a SMB, please approach one of the dive team. They will be happy to assist in showing you how it works. Reef hooks are optional.
As we are usually remote and are several hours or in some occasion, days away from a proper medical facility or hospital, we would like to stress for all divers to please be conservative on your dives. Our dive guides will give a general dive plan with depth and time, but we encourage all to keep within limits of your dive computer and always keep a lookout for your buddy. In the event should you lock out or have an error on your computer, you will be asked to sit out dives until your computer unlocks or clear of the error. So, please dive conservatively. Should you feel any discomfort before, during, or after a dive please inform us immediately. Solo diving is not practiced onboard Gaia Love.
The Captain and Cruise Managers reserves the discretion to postpone or cancel diving operations due to bad weather, strong current conditions and operational requirements. They also have the right to prevent a diver from engaging in any form of diving or in water activities in such cases as diving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Your safety and well-being are paramount so this request will only be made to avoid accidents and for you own personal safety.
