COVID-19 Mitigation Policy Information

If you havent gotten a Vaccine yet, DO SO.

To dive with us on the Lion's Paw, it is a requirement that you have been vaccinated for Covid-19.  Vaccinations are now widely available in the US and there is no reason not to get one.  If you dont agree with this policy, dive with another operation.

If you would like to set up a trip for the 2021 dive season, contact Dive Hatteras or call us at 703-517-3724 so that we can work to make it happen. 

There is no online booking function as we need to talk about the type of diving you want to do and are capable of participating in, so call or email us.

The shops and clubs on the schedule have us booked for these dates in 2021.  If you have interest in diving on these dates, you need to contact them directly to determine if space is available.  If you want to dive on any open boat date or midweek dates that are not listed, e-mail or give us a call to set it up.  

If you want to charter the whole boat on any of the dates listed as Dive Hatteras they are available for Group Charters, get in touch and we can set it up!  These dates will become open boat trips if not booked by a group.
