If you're looking for a great diving experience, try these guys. My son and I went on a private tour with "Nash". He was very safety conscious, took us on a great tour. We ran into some obnoxious divers who tried to push us around a bit, but Nash handled things very professionally. It is a shore dive so make... More

Went scuba diving 2/15/2014. Had an amazing time. The caption and the dive master Nash had knowledge of the area, the marine life, where to go, what to do, helped us in and out of the boat. The boat was clean well maintained, the food was wonderful. We will be back again thanks for a wonderful day!

I am a bit emotionally prejudice since the King Neptune was the boat on my first dive trip during my open water certification class. Maybe it is "first love" feel or just the attitude of the boat crew that always make me feel like I am on my own boat. From the captain to the divemaster everyone is available to... More

My first dive in the marine park was nice the sites were really pretty. My big problem was with the instuctor, the first thing that came out of his mouth was " I don't like divers" hmmm maybe being a dive instructor is the wrong choice for you. My second dive was a ship wreck and I was so looking... More

Had a great experience on the King Neptune. Large boat and very comfortable. the captain was more than willing to take us to some of the nicer dive spots that were a bit further than the usual boats are willing to go. I would dive with them again.

So my boyfriend and I decided to try SNUBA for the first time. Now while I snorkel and took SCUBA lessons years ago it was my boyfriends first time in a wetsuit!! Cody was AMAZING !! He was super careful with my boyfriend and easing him into the water and then keeping me under as I am really floaty ;)... More

We had a dive scheduled with another dive shop that fell through. Scuba Luv was very accommodating to us as walk-ins. We are both newly certified and our guide was great. Diving in a kelp forest was a neat experience - we look forward to returning again.

Forget trying to get a message sent to anyone here through Tina. Oh, and you will NOT get a call back .And her knowledge of the current conditions and what's happening outside of the shop is almost nil. Scheduling? good luck. The only way is to get a reservation made. And , hope the ferry system works in your favor.... More

Great helpful professional staff and boat crew! The dives were amazing, and the boat and boat crew were simply amazing. Some of the best diving I have done with just 59 dives we saw sharks, the kelp forest, ginormous black sea bass, octopus, lobster and crabs just to name a few. We will be back! We bought the dive package... More
