  Solomon Islands Taka liveaboard: Oct 6-19, 2019
Taka liveaboard dive trip Solomon Islands |   Solomon Islands has some of the most pristine dive sites in the world. Unspoiled and undiscovered, the remote location means there are not many divers to put pressure on the reef and fish. They have caverns, reefs, large sea fans, soft corals and lots of macro including a huge diversity of nudibranchs, pygmy seahorse, ghost pipefish and more. The reef is covered in a variety of hard corals home to mandarin fish, eels and masses of reef fish. Many of the islands are surrounded by deep walls which allow divers to interact with schools of pelagics. The diversity of the Solomon's is hard to beat. Taka is a 100 foot mono hull live-aboard dive vessel. Built in 2004 and custom designed for diving, she is spacious inside and out.
   
  Bonaire: Jan 18-25, 2020
  This trip is full. Contact us to be put on a wait list.
Bonaire Group Dive Trip | With as many as 60 officially listed dive sites on Bonaire and another 20 dive sites on Klein Bonaire, the dive operation at Buddy Dive Resort Bonaire is geared up for you to make the most out of your dive vacation. With a fleet of custom dive boats and a well stocked ‘Drive Thru’ offering air and nitrox tanks, every divers needs can be satisfied. To help keep the reef environment healthy for many years to come, we do encourage all divers traveling to Bonaire to familiarize themselves with the Marine Park Regulations prior to their visit. | Scuba Center Dive Travel  Bonaire lies in the southern Caribbean, just 50 miles north of Venezuela and 85 miles east of Aruba. This location is south of the hurricane belt which means ideal weather nearly every day. All the waters around Bonaire form part of the Bonaire National Marine Park. The south western coast is protected by the natural bay and Klein Bonaire, it offers great diving conditions with very little waves or currents. The rugged north eastern coast line, on the other hand, bears the burden of the trade winds and waves. Buddy Dive is located on the waterfront north of town, just a couple of steps from the crystal clear ocean and its many dive sites. The resort has eleven buildings with spacious rooms, a complete dive center, two swimming pools, two restaurants, vehicle rental and the famous drive-thru fill station.
   
  Central Cuba "Land and Liveaboard": Jan 31-Feb 15, 2020
  New options added on Apr 25, 2019
Central Cuba "Land and Liveaboard" Dive Research Trip Your trip begins with environmental experiences on the northeast coast of Cuba in the sleepy town of Santa Lucia where horse drawn carriage taxis are the main transportation. While here, you’ll monitor local bull sharks and explore historical shipwrecks. Capture photos and help gather details about the local dive sites. Then, you’ll spend the weekend in private, chic homes in the quiet, clean art colony of Camagüey – world renowned for its pottery. As the adventure continues to our next destination, we will be transferring by air conditioned bus to Jucaro on the Southern coast (about 3 hours) where we will board the Jardines Aggressor II. We will spend 7 nights onboard the Jardines Aggressor II liveaboard yacht exploring the spectacular Gardens of the Queen (Jardines de la Reina) National Park.
   
  Saba: Mar 13-21, 2020
Saba Group Dive Trip | Scuba Center  For those looking for the quiet Caribbean, an island with old world charm that is “like it used to be”…look no further. The island of Saba proudly declares itself "The Unspoiled Queen" referring to her unspoiled nature and inhabitants. The island’s dive tourism, which started in the early 1980s, introduced SCUBA enthusiasts to the wealth of Saba’s underwater world. The Marine Park was established in 1987 with permanent moorings, regulations of use and maintenance and a strong conservation attitude. Juliana’s Hotel has the perfect location, nestled in the lush hillside in the village of Windwardside, where the days are warm, the nights are refreshingly cool, the birds are chirping, and a gentle breeze flows through your room.
   
  Red Sea: June 4-21, 2020
Red Sea Group Dive Trip |   A Scuba Center Red Sea Trip had been in the works for some time and a few months ago we were able to finalize our arrangements and book a trip. As happens every once in-a-while, staff and word of mouth interest filled the trip up before we have had the opportunity to post it.

At this time, a few spaces have opened up and we would like you to join us on this fantastic diving and cultural trip. If you are interested, please contact Tom Pederson at 651-681-8434 for further details and to register.
