What's the depth range of Touch the
Sea diving? Touch the Sea dives
are usually between 20 and 45' of depth.
Does a diver have to be certified to
Touch the Sea? No, but uncertified
divers must be accompanied by an instructor.
Can snorkelers participate in Touch
the Sea dives? Snorkelers are welcome
to accompany their friends on Touch
the Sea dives, snorkel above us, and
watch what we do -- free of charge.
It's tough to participate in Touch the
Sea while snorkeling since one can't
stay down long enough, or motionlessly
enough, for an interaction.
Should I bring a camera on my Touch
the Sea dive? Having a camera tends
to split a person's mind into a touching
part and a photography part; if you're
okay with that, bringing a camera is
fine. I recommend normal or wide-angle
lenses to capture the interactions.
10. Who else will
be on my Touch the Sea dive? Your buddies will be the one
to three other divers you booked with, and Dee. If just you and
your spouse booked the dive, for example, it will be just you
two and Dee.
11. Can I
work for Touch the Sea? Touch the Sea is an owner-operated
business; Dee personally guides every Touch the Sea dive.
Consequently there is no diving employment available. Touch
the Sea has one position, surface support, which is open
only to Bonairean high school students. That position is
currently already filled.
