New Schedule for snorkeling and Diving at White Sands Dive Shop.

New Schedule for snorkeling and Diving at White Sands Dive Shop.
"The customer is always right" is a motto that was popularized by Marshall Field.
We’ve been fighting an uphill battle to keep a schedule of 9: am departures at the dive shop for years, pushing request for late morning and afternoon dives to fit our schedule of 9: am departures.
Mr Field also said, ‘Give a Lady what she wants”, so here it is:
Our Daily Hol Chan Schedule and Mexico Rocks will be 9: am returns at 12:30, and the 2: pm returning at 5: pm.
Our Daily Two-Tank Dive Trip will depart at 9:am returning at 12:30 and the 1:pm departure returns at 4:30pm.
Single Tank dives can be scheduled for 9:am and 1:pm.
