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

Went on a whim to get a dive in while on Catalina. I was planning to go by myself, but since it had been awhile since I went out and had no one with me they decided not to rent me the gear unless I took a guide. In retrospect, it was a good idea, they were looking out for... More

We have used Catalina Divers Supply from casino point a number of times and always got great service. The staff always go out of their way to be helpful. A group of us recently went out on their boat for a trip to Long Point and Hen Rock. This was an excellent time. The staff helped us onto the boat... More

I finished my Padi Rescue Diver certification at Catalina Divers Supply. The shop is easy to find on the green pleasure pier. Eric, the manager, is professional and friendly. I made all of my arrangements via email with Eric from my home in France without a hitch. My dives were with Jeff, an instructor with the company. Very competent, easy... More

The air fill station was just what we needed. We brought everything except tanks and weights, and got those right at the dive park at casino point from the air fill truck. They were super nice, and they also sell cold bottled water. the were able to accomodate us for a night dive even though the station closes at 4... More
