Blackwater diving is assured to be as unique as the subjects that you will encounter.

Crystal Blue requires our guests to be advanced divers with a minimum of 50 dives before considering this type of dive. Checkout dives are required prior to the first BW dive and only conducted after a full briefing on the best practices fir photographing the subjects, dive skills, safety and dive procedures. Blackwater diving is conducted off shore, often in the open ocean and well away from any land mass. Its in this deep water environment that we will have the opportunity unity to see some of the planets oldest and most unique subject matter. But just be-cause were in deep water doesn’t mean you need to dive deep. So bring your sense of adventure and join our CBR dive team in a one of a kind dive experience.
