2015 NEADC Boat Dive Schedule

The NEADC, through the boat dive coordinator charters several boats each year for club use. These are often popular dives that sell out quickly. These boat dives are a great chance to go on some great dives with other club members.

To reserve a spot on a boat dive, please contact the diver charter directly to pay for the dive or email for more information. Spots are available on a first come, first served basis. A limited number of spaces are open for NEADC members but these spots be booked by other dive clubs and divers.

Dive Charters that are canceled by the boat operator will be refunded in full due to weather or mechanical issues but please check individual charter boat cancelation policies for more specific details.

Divers are responsible for their own spot and payment to the dive charter. Divers who miss the dive will not be refunded unless they find an alternate diver to take their spot.

Keep in mind that the charter price does not include tanks or other equipment rental. Some (but not all) boat operators have rental gear, and you must contact them to arrange it directly.

Some boat dives require advanced certification. The website will indicate that advanced certification is required. Divers who sign up must have advanced certification for these dives or will be denied access to the boat without refund.

The role of the boat dive coordinator is to arrange the logistics of the dive. The Boat Dive Coordinator is not responsible for personal injuries incurred by any person during a Club dive, nor is NEADC, nor the New England Aquarium Corporation. Each person is responsible for his or her own safety.

As interest grows in boat dives, we can schedule as many or as few as the club will support. New ideas for boat operators or dive locations are welcome.

To join a schedule dive or propose a dive not on the schedule contact the Boat Dive Coordinator ( or sign up at the monthly meetings
