One of the few shops going out on Saturday October 8 due to weather, but the weather was fantastic. We did a two tank dive off Pensacola coast and visibility was decent (about 20 feet), current was fairly strong. Diving was great, water was warm, and there were lots of fish! As always, the crew was very professional and ensured... More

We rented two single and one double kayak and took the small creek out to Little Lagoon. Both of my boys, ages 13 and 6, loved it. This was our first time Kayaking and Michael at the dive shop was very helpful. We saw lots of fish jumping and birds but no alligators! We will definitely be back!

My daughter took an off shore trip though it was her first open water dive since getting her certification. The dive shop staff recommended a guide to accompany her which was excellent advice. Her guide was Jessica and I would encourage folks to ask for her. She was excellent. We did not realize the challenges of gulf diving (strong current,... More

We came down to orange beach just so we could dive. We had been trying to schedule this for months. We finally got a dat. Mitch, Brian and Captain Bert were awesome. Would love to come down again to do a wreck dive. Thanks!

Captain Bert and his crew are professional, fun, and committed to making your trip the best. Laughs are guaranteed. They have fun, but your safety and comfort come first.

I rented snorkeling gear for a day ($47) and was told a couple of places for good snorkeling, but not given a map of the area. Both places had so many jellyfish around I was unable to do any snorkeling. When I returned the gear (unused) early and told them of my disappointment, the only response was "Well, that's Mother...
