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

This was my first official dive, so perhaps I'll realize later that my ratings are off...BUT: --crew and captain and my personal dive guide (extra $50 charge; ask for Bud!) were so friendly, helpful, and didn't get frustrated with my first-time questions and concerns. They seem to be used to rookies! --dive sites were not that great, but they were... 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.

I am going to make a long story short...The employee did not want to assist us...he was just unhappy...1st tried to tell me they don't make two piece dive suits (WRONG!!!), 2nd we left our equipment to be serviced 1 month ago (tank) and ordered a regulator and still have not heard from them, 3rd, we wanted a new regulator...

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.

Great experience! Customer friendly service for 4 kayak rental. Shop gave accurate advice and our family had a good time. No reservations, so we took our chances. Shop has approximately 8 kayaks and gear at this location. Teens had a great time. We'll go again!

We arrived at Down Under Dive Shop at 10:00 a.m. and were met by a rude and disgruntled employee. Apparently, he was alone and could not handle a small group of waiting customers. He immediately informed us that we had come during the busy season and that no openings were available for boat diving. We asked to rent some equipment... More
