Scuba Diving Policy & Procedures

Welcome to the Chasin’ Tide Charters! We will do everything possible to make sure all of your experiences are safe and enjoyable. All members of the Chasin’ Tide Dive Team are committed to your safety and dive enjoyment. However, it is each divers sole responsibility to ensure he/she possesses all the necessary skills, training, equipment and insurance required of ocean diving. Make sure before your dive all of your equipment is properly maintained, serviced and in perfect working order. This is your responsibility, and if you have any doubts, DO NOT DIVE.

Diving is a wonderful sport, but not without risks. YOUR safety while diving is YOUR responsibility. You are under your own care, custody and control while diving.


All divers must have the proper certification from a nationally recognized agency such as P.A.D.I.NAUI, etc, for dives they are planning to participate in.

All divers must hold a minimum of Advanced Open Water Diver Certification. You will be asked to provide your certifying agency name and certification number for each dive, along with showing a member of the Crew your C-Card.

The only exceptions will be students with their instructors doing certification dives. Instructors must discuss and gain approval from the Captain on all training dives.
