Cancellation Policy

Trips can be canceled due to storms and waves, but not rain. If the captain cancels any trip due to unsafe conditions, divers are entitled to a refund. Partial refunds are given if some diving has occurred, and 100% refunds are given if no diving has occurred. However, you may not be refunded if the captain has suggested canceling the trip but you insisted on continuing. Generally, we go diving if the waves are less than four (4) feet. Divers who give a three-day advanced notice may cancel without penalty.

Gift Certificates

Gift certificates are available.
Simply contact Captain Jim directly at (630) 209-2445 or via email at to make arrangements.
