Is there a check out dive on the boarding day or it is the following morning ? - A check-out dive is not usually scheduled on the boarding day; instead, activities such as snorkeling and happy hour are planned.

What time does diving end on the day before check out (how many dives on the last day) ? - Diving on the day before check-out includes three scheduled dives.
