The scenery was good, lots of fish, nice kelp forest, a good scuba experience, but... Wet suits were a little wet, not a problem but when it takes your guide 30 minuets to use the bathroom, it's uncomfortable. On top of that, one tank was not filled up all the way so my friend had trouble breathing. He had to... More

This was a 2 tank dive on a Saturday. First of all the crew were awesome. Fun and knowledgeable and very sensitive to the newbie divers that were on the boat. I thought that was really wonderful. They took us out way down the coast past Two Harbors to a place called Indian Rock. It was a nice dive. Nothing... More

We had a lovely in perfect weather, and a very small group. There were schools of fish. We saw a school of dolphins on the ride back. I understand that sometimes the boat goes out with a large group and that would not appeal to me. The crew was friendly and helpful. Good job.

I dive a lot in various locations around the globe. The boat, the crew and the diving were great. Unfortunately the kelp forest has been hurt by sargassum. The mistake I made on this trip was not also diving the Avalon dive park. I did not realize that location was such a great place to dive also. Nonetheless, a reason... More

First Snorkeling experience was an absolute success! They have two locations, clerk at the pier location suggested we rent from their location by the casino so that we could snorkel in a better location. I thought the rates for 2 hours were great especially for a first timer. Both ladies that helped us out were super nice! I would definitely... More

Capt John and First Mate Lizzie run a big, clean, high-service dive boat operation. Check-in was easy, the boat was fully ready, with all our tanks set up. They have extra equipment in case you forget/lose yours. They were patient with stragglers and newbies to diving. They are completely professional while also having fun. The sandwiches were also great (turkey... More

This place is the best. They are the closest to the dive park so it's really easy to get the gear and walk straight into the ocean. It also makes it very easy to get refills since they can just add it to your tab. The gear was in great condition too! The guy working there was so helpful, which... More

Great boat, great service, with two dive locations with a variety of sea life and very little current at the dive spots selected.

This was my first visit to Catalina and I was determined to dive. I had booked a dive with another shoo on the island and they called me to cancel due to their guide hang an ear infection but said they had called Catalina Dive Supply and that they would be able to accommodate me. I went to the little... More

I was waiting for my tour and was told to go to other dock and check in at the Diving Shop. I had to wait while the young lady served a few others but she seems kind of crabby and not happy with her job. When my turn came she told me to wait and pointed at a bench and... More
