2020 BFDC Schedule and Sign-up Notes:

  • Dive Schedule was last updated on 5/16/2020 at 5:30 PM.
  • Dive schedule dates are FINAL. Planned dive locations/costs are still being worked out. Dive sites , etc. are subject to change prior to SIGN-UP DATE
  • SIGN-UPS will BEGIN ON JANUARY 17, 2020!
  • All dive sites are conditional upon weather, wind and currents.
  • Read Diving with the BFDC for policies and procedures! …and CANCELLATION POLICY (greater than 90 days!) and note POLICY CHANGE
  • Read about the dive sites before signing up. Some of these are DEEP and these are not guided or training dives.
    Do you have the experience? If I do not know you, please contact me before the sign-up date and let's talk about where/what you want to dive.
  • The general rule is First Come, First Serve!...but where there is conflict, high demand, etc., I do try to give everyone at least one of their choices.
  • All dive trips are planned for two dives, weather permitting.
  • COVID-19 info: As of today, none of the BFDC charter boats have canceled any of the scheduled 2020 BFDC dives. Like all individual diving and sign-up decisions for BFDC trips, each individual diver has to make a covid19 diving decision for themselves based on whatever information they have to guide them and their own risk factors and circumstances. And like they do for non-covid19 decisions related to weather, sea conditions and assessing group or individual dive experience, the boats, captains and shops will also make their own decisions based on whatever information they have to guide them and their own risk factors and circumstances. I understand the uncertainty, but I cannot and will not make those decisions. It is up to each one of you to decide. I will simply coordinate and minimize disruption based on how things roll out between the boats and the divers.
  • PRICES: The charter price is only for the boat ride and does not include equipment, gas/air, or food, etc.The economics of "6-pack" boats also lend themselves to greater year-to-year price fluctuations as there are fewer paying passengers to spread the costs over. The BFDC likes to dive with small numbers and there is a cost/value to that preference. Additionally, some of the charter boats now have a "fuel surcharge". This is a $ amount which will be added to the cost of the charter. It will vary according to how much fuel is burned — the longer trip burns more fuel! While I know this is somewhat unpopular, I think it is a fact of life until the fuel situation settles down. Still a great deal for the adventure of a life time!
  • A word about WAIT LIST: If you are interested in a dive, but see that there is a "waiting list" for the dive, don't despair! Send me an email expressing your interest and you will be added. People's plans and life change during the year, so it is not unusual for spots to open up on individual dives and weekends.
