dive site, all meals, and a private submersible dive.

Sample Mission Itinerary:
Day 1: Embark upon your undersea adventure in the early evening from lower Manhattan. Once underway, you will join fellow crew members and research scientists for a formal mission safety and dive plan brief led by the Mission Director. Our mission oceanographic expert will present an overview of the many potential corals, sharks, whales and other sea life you may encounter and
observe from the submersible.
Day 2: Awake at our dive mission destination and enjoy a light breakfast and then transfer to the submersible for your dive. During this completely untethered 3-5 hour dive you will be communicating with the surface, but free to explore and document the habitat. After your dive, there will be a post-dive debrief and dinner with the entire mission crew before you retire for the overnight motor back to New York City.
Day 3: Back in New York City with memories of new underwater discoveries.
