In general you can take 2 tanks per person. You can reload as many times per day as necessary. If for some reason you would like to take more tanks (for example: If you want to do 3 dives in the National Park Washington Slagbaai, or if you plan a night dive followed by two early morning dives) we are always wiling to meet your requirements. After all, it is all about your best diving experience with AB-Dive!
