There are a number of dive boats running charters that are open to the public in the New York City area. Most of these have a dive schedule created in the off season, consisting of charters by clubs and shops, and "open boat" dives. For charters, you would buy a spot from the chartering organization, which may have its own requirements and policies. For example, the NYC Sea Gypsies charters a number of dives throughout the season. For open boats, you would buy spots directly from the boat captain (or owner, if different).


In our area, dive boats are either based on the New Jersey shore or Long Island. There used to be a dive boat out of Brooklyn a number of years ago, but no more. While there is diving in the Long Island sound, this is less popular due to local conditions and there are currently no commercial charters run in this area.
