Dive trip departure times vary based on the tides. Divers meet here at the shop where we will sign releases and fulfill any rental gear needs. Don't forget your certification card! However, if you did we can usually look up your diver information on the PADI or SSI website. You can leave your dive gear in your car and we will shuttle it to the boat, which leaves from just around the corner at the Snook Inn's dock. Prices listed are for divers who are Open Water certified and above, and include 2 tanks, weights, snacks and non-alcoholic refreshments. And in case you forgot your scuba equipment at home, don't worry, we have a full rental department here ready to help out!
When dive conditions are good close in, near shore trips are fantastic. The boat ride is short and the depths are shallow which means more bottom time and less travel time. All the species which can be seen further out can also be seen nearshore including our massive Goliath grouper! Depths typically range from 25 to 45 feet. Trip time is approximately 4.5 hours.
At times the visibility close to shore can get pretty stirred up. When this happens we run to the middle-ground to find clearer water beyond the wash out zone. There is an excellent mix of artificial reefs and wrecks in this zone. Intermediate depths range from 40 to 55+ feet and yield good bottom times. Trip time is approximately 5 hours.
We have several unique dive sites & wrecks in this range. The longer run out is generally rewarded with better visibility. Depths start at 55 feet and our deepest site, the Blue Hole, is a bottomless wall dive. These trips are approximately 5.5 hours.
We require a credit card for reservations, however we do not collect payment until the morning of the dive trip. Cancellations within 24 hours of the dive trip will have to be charged a cancellation fee, so please let us know in advance if you decide not to dive.
