PLEASE NOTE:
Trip deposits and final payments paid for by credit card or PayPal will be subject to a 3% credit card processing fee. We also accept cash, or check or payments. ALL trip deposits are nonrefundable, full cancellation policy and penalties are available in the Easy Divers Travel Registration and Application that must be provided at time of booking.
TRIP DEADLINE CLARIFICATION
All of our trips have a listed deadline. Each trip budget is based on a minimum number participants for a trip to run as scheduled. The deadline helps us to confirm that there is enough interest to keep the trip on the books. As long as we meet the minimum, the trip will run. We encourage you to call for availability if you would like to sign up after the deadline has passed. Often times we can add you on up until just a few days prior to departure on the local trips. If in doubt, CALL US!
TRIP DEPOSIT POLICY
Your deposit is a promise to travel, contracts are signed, reservations are confirmed, and staff engaged, so please understand that trip deposits are non-refundable. Airfare and taxes can also change at anytime, so package price can never be fully guaranteed until deposits are received. Complete cancellation policy is contained in each travelers personal copy of the Easy Divers Travel Registration and Application.
TRAVEL INSURANCE
If you can afford to lose your entire trip payment, STOP reading this now. For most of us however, we plan and save to make our vacation dreams come true and if family illness, bad weather, or other unforeseen circumstances were to keep us from our trip we would want to be reimbursed. Travelex Insurance has several affordable plans to meet our needs. Still not sure? Read Travelex’s top reason to purchase travel insurance. When you are ready to purchase your plan, use our record locator # 42-0002, you may leave the agent code section blank. Once your transaction is completed a copy of your confirmation will be sent to me and I will put it into your travel file. Also take a copy with you so you will have contact phone numbers should the need arise. A little time and attention to purchasing travel insurance can make all the difference if the unexpected happens.

January 26 – February 1 , 2018
St. Croix, USVI
The Juliet, Sailing Liveaboard

Start out 2018 with a bang by traveling to St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  We love the service, comfort, and adventure of this 104 foot, 3 masted schooner, and we are really excited about exploring St Croix.  There is no better diving than off of a floating hotel with the wind, weather, and waters directing our course. Wouldn’t this be a lovely way to shake off the January winter blues?  Picture yourself now in some 80 degree Caribbean blue water without a New Year’s care in the world.  We will depart from the Fredriksted Pier and exploring the wrecks and reefs of Butler Bay, the walls off Cane Bay, and the reefs and slopes of the northern shores of the island around the Salt River and Christiansted.

Divers will appreciate the well-positioned and convenient dive staging area, spacious gear storage boxes, and Enriched Air – Nitrox.  Due to the remote dive locations and the multi-day repetitive diving, we request that all divers be Nitrox certified.   Three to four dives are offered daily, weather conditions and itinerary permitting, and this trip allows dives on our day of arrival right off of where our boat is docked.  Of course we will also need to set aside time for snorkeling, sailing, relaxing, exploring, beachcombing, and stargazing.

Trip fees:

  • $1890 Deluxe Cabin, per person from St. Croix based on double occupancy: $750 deposit due now
  • $1690 Standard Cabin, per person from St. Croix based on double occupancy: $500 deposit due now
