What kind of diving do you have?

All kinds!!!  We have everything from shallow reefs to ship wrecks, high speed drift dives and much more. Never been diving, let us teach you.  We have all the levels of instruction, including a Discover Scuba course.

Should I bring my own equipment?

It’s up to you.  We include weights, weight belt, and tanks in the dive price.  We have BCDs, regulators, computers, mask & fins, snorkels, and wetsuits available for rent. !

Can my kids dive? Can they go on the boat?

Children 8-10 years old are eligible to take our Bubblemaker course.  Junior Certifications are available for children ages 10-14 (normal certification fees apply).  Children under 3 years are permitted to accompany their parents on the boat for free.  All other boat riders are subject to a $49 fee.
