I would not recommend scheduling certifications through this dive shop if you are looking for a location that runs on time. I've been diving 5 times through different locations, and I've never gone through a place that was this disorganized. Here's the full story. I...More

My husband and I are relatively inexperienced divers (with about 20 dives each) and were completely comfortable with the staff and equipment here. We had a great dive on the Hyde Wreck, felt safe, and saw some amazing marine life (include sand tiger sharks -...More
