You're no pro, but you have plenty of dives in your log book. You've made it to some of the popular local wrecks, but you want more. Maybe you've dove from a Caribbean liveaboard; maybe you'd like to. Then you’re ready to experience the overnight experience of a liveaboard. This season, the John Jack will give you that opportunity. We plan to schedule several overnight trips to some of the more popular wrecks close to our home port in Pt. Pleasant, NJ.
Why a liveaboard? During a liveaboard trip, there is more time spent diving and less time spent loading gear and steaming to the dive site.
Here’s how it will work. After the divers load their gear on a Thursday evening, we’ll sail to one of the local, better known dive sites. After a speedy tie in, we’ll do a night dive when the lobsters are out and about. When you reboard, you’ll be greeted by a warm meal. After dinner, sit back and watch a DVD movie on our flat screen TV with the sound surround system. Or, just relax on the upper deck and enjoy the serenity of the ocean waves lapping at the boat. At the end of the evening, get some sleep in a full-size bunk. The next day begins with a cooked breakfast with lunch at midday - dive at your leisure. On this trip, you’ll be able to log one night dive and two dives the next day; early risers might squeeze in third dive during the day. After the last dive, we’ll do a final head count, “pull the hook,” and make the short ride back to the dock.
This will be a unique experience, one that only the John Jack is designed to provide. We have a full galley with ample seating and sleeping accommodation for 10 with full-size bunks (no “spice racks). We will provide on-board air fills after the night dive, so you don’t have to borrow tanks to do three dives.
We will provide bunks (you provide your own pillow and sleeping bag or sheet), three meals (dinner the 1st night, breakfast and lunch the next day), as well as snacks, soft drinks, desserts, and on-board air fills from our quality compressors.
This will be a great trip designed specifically for newer divers looking to gain their sea legs. These trips will be limited to 10 customers. For your safety and enjoyment, we require an Advanced Open Water cert.
Be sure to check back often as this new plan unfolds.
