Cruise and Dive on Windstar

The dive program aboard the Windstar vessels is similar to any state-of-the-art, five star facility that one would find in the US. The staff consists of instructors with PADI/NAUI certifications. All of our instructors have been in the dive industry for many years and have at least 5,000 combined logged dives, while certifying thousands of divers. The program offers a weekly resort diver course, which allows the non-certified diver the opportunity to try SCUBA. The present course only takes two hours and is conducted while the ship is at sea. All certified divers must present a valid c-card or fax confirmation from a certifying agency prior to diving. Certification referrals are conducted on an individual basis. All dives are guided for safety and enjoyment.

Diving is from two 17’ RIB’s with a maximum capacity of 16 divers on any dive (this prevents overcrowding at dive sites), although the program can offer several dives to any given site to accommodate large groups. Sherwood provides the latest regulators and BCD’s. All regulators have alternate air sources, depth and pressure gauges. A qualified Sherwood technician services all regulators annually. BCD power inflator assemblies, reg hoses and mouthpieces are checked weekly and replaced if necessary. Tanks are aluminum 80’s and use K valves. All tanks are visually inspected annually by a certified technician and hydrostatically tested every five years. The program has two Bauer compressors on board for reliable air supply. Boats are equipped with first aid, oxygen, ladders and VHF radios.

The cost is $70 for a one tank dive or $120.00 for a 2 tank!

Diving on the Windstar vessels is convenient and easy. All gear is rigged by the staff and placed in the boats. Divers need only show up 10 minutes before dive time ready to have fun. After the dive, the staff unrigs and washes the gear.
