Captain Bert and his crew are professional, fun, and committed to making your trip the best. Laughs are guaranteed. They have fun, but your safety and comfort come first.

I rented snorkeling gear for a day ($47) and was told a couple of places for good snorkeling, but not given a map of the area. Both places had so many jellyfish around I was unable to do any snorkeling. When I returned the gear (unused) early and told them of my disappointment, the only response was "Well, that's Mother...

These people don't know how to return phone calls or pick up the phone. Called repeatedly for days, left multiple messages - zero response. Finally we drove out to the shop and when asked about scheduling a trip their response was "oh, we just booked up for those days." When explaining that we'd been calling/leaving messages for days, their only... More

I just used this dive shop to dive the Lulu. This is a great shop. I dove with many dive shops and this is one of the top ones for me. The dive boat was great with great Captain and two dive masters. They really went out of their way to ensure everybody was comfortable and safe. They clean our... More

We stopped in for my boyfriend to get some equipment and check on a few things. Staff was super friendly and informative with my son who had tons of questions. Lots of great equipment, classes and lessons. We will be back!

We have rented kayaks from this company twice now. $25 for 2-hour rental. They direct you to the marsh area if you want to see wildlife, mostly birds. Our taxi driver said "did you see any gators our there?" He said, "the area you kayaked is loaded with them." We didn't see a one! So beware if you go :)

I had the opportunity to dive twice in June with this dive shop and they are always professional. They do everything as it is supposed to be done. We dove the captain shirley brown, rome, and the lulu over two weekends and each dive was different and fantastic.

My husband and I completed our Open Water Certification here. Everything from initial communication to choosing gear, practicing skills and boat diving were a very positive experience. Our instructor Jim made sure we understood everything we needed in order to feel safe and comfortable during our dives. During out boat dives, Captain Burt and his crew were helpful and considerate.... More

I dove with Down Under just last week (May 2015) and had a GREAT experience. I saw some bad reviews on here, but they couldn't have been more off base. Brian worked with me to get me on a boat even though I booked a little late. When I got on board, they explained everything I needed to know about... More
