Most of the dive charter boats are large RIB's carrying up to 10 divers plus their Divemaster. A divemaster and skipper are generally the crew, though extra hands may be provided at the launch site to help launch the boat and move dive kit. Depending on conditions, the boats may launch and land on the seashore, or use the river mouth. Parts of the boat trip may be rough.
