I dove with the Marissa and while the dive conditions were not the best, I had a good time on the boat and diving was a good learning experience. The crew were friendly and knowledgeable.

We've dived with the Marissa a few times now, and always had a great time. The ocean conditions can a bit hit or miss, but Laura (captain) and Chris (DM) have always taken really good care of us. The boat is on the smaller side,...More

We made a special trip to San Diego to dive the wrecks off the Marissa. The crew was great, the food yummy (thanks for a nice lunch with the 3-tank trip!). We had a good time, and the other divers were very nice.
