Dive Trips

Why Travel With ECD?

Travel Managed By Experts

Our team has the diving and travel experience to choose the best locations for every diving level and every type of traveler. We offer domestic long weekend trips to explore the waters closer to home, as well as a variety of international trips. We choose high-quality dive shops and resorts to ensure our customers have the best experience possible.

Experienced Trip Leaders

Each trip has at least one trip leader to coordinate all the details before and during your trip, so you’re free to relax and enjoy your vacation. Trip leaders are liaisons with the resort and dive shop and coordinate group activities, which travelers are invited to join in, or may choose to relax with a mojito on the beach instead…..do as much or as little as you want on our trips, it’s your vacation!

Reduced Price For Cash Or Check

If we don’t have to pay the credit card processing fees, you don’t either! If you pay your trip balance in cash or with a check, the trip costs you 5% less. Trip deposits can be made with a credit card online and as long as the rest of the balance is paid by cash/check you can still take advantage of our cash discount.

Spots on trips can be reserved either by signing up online, calling the shop, or signing up in person at the shop. We are not able to sign anyone up for a trip without payment of the full deposit amount.
