Before I plan my dive trips I always look at the reviews for the dive operation that I might dive with. As I'm reading all the negative reviews(which I read first) I can't help to question the experience of the divers that posted the reviews. As any well trained diver should know is that scuba diving can be very challenging... More

Very unhappy about the service here. We showed up here wanting to do a shore dive. I asked about the condition for whiskey wreck. They indicated it shouldn't be a problem. They didn't ask us didn't questions or Maher sure We had everything wet needed. We could not get past the surf at all. 30 psi is all we used.... More

I'm glad we chose to dive with these guys and for our own opinion. We were very pleased with everything. We're divers from the midwest, so water temp over 50 and vis where we can see our fins is a good day. We own all of our gear so we didn't deal with rentals, etc... Crew of the boat and... More

Everything at the shop at topside was great. Great crew. The inshore sites however, are about as interesting as a pile of rocks. Because that's what they are. And a big rectangular metal "barge". Yawn.

We dove the “Lulu” and the Navy tugboat with Down Under on October 26, 2013. Everyone from the boat Captain to the DM’s was very helpful and professional. The boat was clean, and our rental tanks were at the boat waiting for us when we got there. I will be diving with these guys again!

I dive with down under several times a year they have the best boat to dive off of and a great staff. I highly recommend booking a trip with this company.
