1.6. If Customers fail to meet the performance requirements on any dive or knowledge development session, at the sole discretion of the instructor, Davy Jones Diving reserves the right to charge for repeating that dive or session, the rate for this will be based on the current missed session rate at that time and depend on the nature of the dive or session in question.
