Welcome Aboard! -- Because of our dedication to service and quality, year after year our group tours sell out well in advance. Most all of our 2015 group tours sold out well in advance. We are now actively selling spots on our group tours for 2016 and 2017. These include the best of Indonesia, The Philippines, Grenada, Sea of Cortez, Costa Rica and Cuba. So if you'd like to join in a exciting group conducted tour, with new friends, good fun, and great diving...don't miss the dive boat! Now is the time to act.
Swim with sea lions, manta rays, hammerheads and whale sharks -- This 6-night trip in the Sea of Cortez sails from La Paz, and includes six night aboard ship, with five days of diving.

TWO DEPARTURES -- In response to demand, we have added a second Manthiri sailing. Island Dreams' Ken Knezick is scheduled to serve as your tour leader on both trips. This great liveaboard has just six cabins, serving 12 guests, so please act now if you'd like to experience the best of the Maldives with Manthiri and Island Dreams.
Dive the Indian Ocean on a Great Liveaboard -- Manthiri is not the fanciest boat sailing the Maldives, and she is far from the most expensive. Yet Manthiri has the well-earned reputation for serving up the most knowledge and experience, the best dive guides, and the very finest diving experience in the Maldives. The experience is enhanced by the fact that Manthiri takes only 12 guests per cruise. You are invited to join Island Dreams' Ken Knezick on this nine-night cruise and see for yourself.

Legal Travel to Cuba -- We have all been waiting for a legitimate opportunity to visit and dive Cuba. It is the largest Caribbean Island, and has been the forbidden fruit for most of our lifetimes. As a travel business owner in the USA, I have ignored all previous invitations to visit Cuba because they were, at best, skirting the law. Fortunately for us all, this has finally changed. Here you will find details of the Oceans for Youth Cuba program, and it's association with the Jardines Aggressor liveaboard dive vessel. To meet the letter of the law, this program contains stipulations, some of which you may find unusual. These are specifically what enable the program's legitimacy. Consult this information carefully, after which I hope you will consider joining me and Island Dreams on this cultural and scuba diving adventure to Cuba, September 1-10, 2016.

** NEW -- This program has just been announced. Be among the first to enjoy this unique travel and diving experience.
