MasterCard brands their system as ‘MasterCard SecureCode’ and Visa call theirs ‘Visa Secure’.
3D Secure protects a buyer’s credit card against unauthorized use when shopping online. This simple service enables buyers to validate transactions you make over the internet by requesting a personal code (usually sent to your cell phone or email address as a one-time PIN). It helps protect against fraudulent use by unauthorized individuals.

If we do need to cancel the dive day or re-route to another dive site area. Our dive leaders may also end a dive at any time if they believe the conditions to be potentially unsafe. We do not offer refunds or discounts due to weather, water conditions, or other unforeseen events if it is happening or occurred during or in the middle of the diving activity.
In a situation where Force Majeure is applied such as thunderstorms, huge waves, unsafe strong currents, here are some things we can do.
