Of course they can come too. While you are diving, they can enjoy the sun and the sea on our comfortable boat. However, please note that although very rarely, sometimes our boat gets crowded and we have to limit the number of non-divers on board. Therefore, please contact us ahead of time to secure a spot on the boat for your non-diver friends. Also, please note that we are a baby/child friendly boat.
