I get to dive only once a year for a week or two. So every year I have to wonder if I chose the right dive shop. I can say Ocean Explores far exceeded my expectations. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. I felt like part of the family.

I dove a total of 8 dives and found it to... More

My wife and I went on our first attempt at trying scuba diving on a Discovery Dive. Boy did we have such a great time! I was scared to death to try, but they made it very easy to get used to and enjoy our first trip. We visited a place called the Bridge, which had small wrecks, which we... More

My husband and two 20+ sons recently went on a diving trip with Ocean Explorers. They thoroughly enjoyed their diving experience! They received personalized attention both before and during their dive. My two sons have recently become certified but have not dived very many times yet. They appreciated Jeff's help in the water and were thrilled that they were able... More

5 family divers did our first ocean dives with OE. Ricardo dove each dive with us and walked us through all the steps, found many interesting sea creatures and hooked us for life. Bravo Ocean Explorers!
