Hi there. This is Michelle, one of the owners of White Sands Cove. You should have received all of that information in our original correspondence with you and certainly in your confirmation email. Here are some excerpts from the email that we send to our guests...Travel around the island/Golf Carts
White Sands Cove Resort is the first resort north of San Pedro, just 2.5 miles from town. This makes getting up and down the coast a breeze. The Island Ferry, a convenient service that runs boats north and south every hour, makes White Sands Cove Resort its final stop going south before reaching San Pedro and its first stop going north after departing town. The ride on the ferry, to and from town, takes approximately 10 minutes and costs $7.00 USD per person each way. The next time you think you’re paying a lot for gasoline remember it is $5.00 USD per gallon here in San Pedro. We also have our own private water taxi driver who can come to pick our guests up at any time between 7:00am and 6:00pm. Golf carts can also be rented and are a great way to explore the island. If you think you will want to rent one during your stay, please let us know, and we will email you a price list. We also have 15 beach bicycles, all with baskets for shopping, for riding anywhere you want on the island. You can rent them for $5.00 per person for the whole day, and they come with a lock. It’s great exercise riding on the beach to town! Diving and Snorkeling
White Sands Dive Shop is headed up by PADI staff instructor Elbert Greer. Please check out our new diving website at www.whitesandscovediveshop.com.
As a Trainer for Master Divers wanting to become Dive Instructors in their own right, Elbert is well regarded as one of the most experienced divers on the island. Certification courses, taught by Elbert, take place in our pool daily and multiple dive and snorkel trips depart our dock on one of several beautiful dive boats throughout the day. With one of the best safety records on the island and a diverse map of dive sites for skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced, Elbert and his team of top notch divers are sure to give you a diving experience you'll never forget!
White Sands Dive Shop has two dive boats and run dive and snorkel trips four times daily at 9:00am, 11:00am, 1:30pm and night diving at 5:00pm. In addition to diving and snorkeling, we also offer resort courses, full certifications and referral courses which begin in our pool and then, right out to the reef for a shallow dive on your first day! Elbert and his team are also certified nitrox divers. The price of a 2-tank dive is $75.00 USD which includes tax and it lasts about 2-1/2 hours. We will be working on dive packages for 2007, but if you do more than five dives per person, you will get a 10% discount. If you need any dive equipment like BC’s, regulators, snorkels, masks, fins or even a wet suit, you can rent it from us for a nominal charge.
We look forward to meeting you in June!
