My Wife and I are newly certified divers.

My 2 son's got certified with us last month.

As of yet, we have not gone on a Dive trip.

Not sure if you would want a bunch of rookies with you.

Souns fun tho.

yeah this trip would be probably a little hardcore. I'd recommend doing a bit of shore diving before you go on a livaboard trip.

I have 6 dives under my belt. but perhaps that is even extreme for me. I just have the basic certification.

the difference with this type of trip is your on the boat for the full 8 days, no escape to dry land so hopefully your quite used to the trials of the scuba as you have boat life to deal with. Plus on livaboard you sometimes do 4 dives a day which can be quite exhausting.
