Just email them directly at Jads (just go to their website for email address). They're very good about a prompt response. I suspect they may do a charter.
We are staying at the Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino in October. Tried diving in deep water once but could not do. Would like to walk in off beach. Is that possible up near our hotel? Where are you located? What is the cost? Thank you.
