How far in advance should I book my activity?

Daily tours can be booked on the same day, subject to availability. In the activities like Yacht Charter or Liveaboard’s, as it involves some logistics, they must be booked at least one week in advance.

Is it possible to take a diving course during my stay on board?

Yes. With SSI’s online training method, it is possible to do all the theoretical component in your home and only take the written exam and the practical component in person. Like this, it will take fewer hours to complete your course, giving you more time to enjoy your vacation.
