Weather

Trips are not canceled due to rain.  The decision to cancel a trip due to bad weather usually cannot be made until depature time.  Trips may be canceled due to waves and storms.

Our guidelines are:
        2 - 3 ft. waves - Trip proceeds
        4 - 5 ft. waves - Drivers may vote to cancel trip
        5 - 6 ft. waves - Trip canceled

The captain will cancel any trip he believes is unsafe and make refunds to all drivers present.

Remember that weather is different on different parts of the lake - Bad weather at the weather buoy in the middle of the lake does not necessarily mean that we will have bad weather at our dive site.
