Very well organized dive. Bob and Pam were very helpful and attentive. Not the most exciting diving sites but I would definitely dive with them next time I'm in the area.

Bob and Dave were helpful and humorous. We had 9 divers on board and they managed to get us all in and out of the water without any problems or commotion. We dove about 7 miles off shore at a ledge and an artificial reef. Not very scenic compared other tropical dive destinations, but there were plenty of fish to... More

I booked this dive charter so my wife could go diving. Crewed by Allison, the captain, and Pam, dive master, it was a great time. Allison and Pam did everything to have a safe dive. They both reviewed the expectations so all seven divers would get the most out of the two dives. They described the two sites and what... More

This is very well run diving outfit. Pros - From the first phone call, Owner Bob was courteous, helpful and professional. Captain Allison was kind, fun and helpful, and at the same time firm and clear, making the dive experience fun and safe at the same time. She is a gem. Assistants Bob and Dave were both top drawer as... More

Husband and I drove quite a ways for this dive experience and we were not disappointed. Our dive was cancelled the night before because 2 of the 4 divers cancelled. I was disappointed but soon after we got a call that the dive was back on! When we met in the morning all the dive gear was waiting for us... More

I am a novice diver, but the crew, headed by Captain Allison, was very helpful and provided us with some very interesting things to see and experience. They were professional in their approach, safety conscious and then showed us a great time. I can't believe all the different species of fish (and a sea turtle!) that we saw!

Excellent half day 2 tank dives at local reefs. Captain Bob, Dive Master Lea and crew were professional, yet friendly and made the day enjoyable. I highly recommend them if you are in the Bradenton or Sarasota area.

First of all I want to thank Captain Bob for providing a perfect diving experience in the Gulf. I had gone out with Blue Water Explorers two years ago for three days of diving and was able to get in two on my latest visit to the area. Captain Bob was very quick to respond to all of my questions... More
