Many Dive Day boats also have an uncovered sun-deck outside, as well as a shaded area, for divers wishing to be out in the open air. The Diveboat will usually have a diving air compressor, oxygen first aid, a VHF radio, a GPS and possibly gas blending facilities. In the case of divers, a day boat would be used to ferry divers to multiple dive-sites (typically between one and three sites) during the same day. The divers enter the water by stepping off a platform and return to the boat using a ladder or a lift. Or they may transfer to and from a RIB ("Zodiac" (tm) or "rubber-duck" type inflatable boat).
A dive boat is a boat that scuba divers use to reach a diving site which they could not reach by swimming from land.
