As divers, we have a responsibility to take care of the environment around us and we try to share that with the Tampa Bay community through our regularly-scheduled all volunteer-organized cleanups. Learn more on our Dive Against Debris page!

Starting off as Midwest lake divers, our family relocated to Tampa to be closer to the ocean, the springs and the Florida caves. We enjoy a large variety of activities – from shark-tooth hunting at Venice Beach, to exploring the Florida springs, to spearfishing in the Gulf – finding creatures and treasures on each site we explore. It’s our personal mission to make sure that students get a personalized and hands-on diving experience while having fun. Safety is our primary initiative and our small class sizes, individualized instruction and reasonable price makes us stand out from other dive shops and resorts while at the same time having access to some of the most sought-out dive sites, charters and equipment.
