I will talk to the operator and see if we can book for March 2014, if so I'll take deposits (25%) 6 months prior (Sept next year) whereupon your spot will be confirmed. The balance to be paid 1 month prior to trip commencing.

This year the cost was $2400 for 6 nights and seven days diving, food, gas (air) and chopper inclusive. If fuel goes up so does the trip cost.

It is possible. It is a bit of a logistical nightmare but it's possible.

You should just get a Rebreather Ali... If there's anyone I know who would benefit from one it is you! :wink:

Wow - didn't think this would get rolling so quickly!

Kathryn and I are interested, but wouldn't be able to confirm at the moment. Keep us in the loop though. Cheers

Ok great.

If the level of interest holds then it will be whoever pays deposits for those last three spots first gets the spots. If more deposits are offered than spots then ballot will be the only option.

So first week in Feb or from the 12th April are our options around that time.

Any preferences for either?

As soon as we have consensus I will book the slot for us.
