My son and I really enjoyed our amazing day with Captain Leon and Tito. We live in Buffalo, Ny, but I grew up in Tampa. My brother, who lives in Venice, Fl also joined in on the fun. The weather was going to be iffy for the Monday dive, so Ryan kept in contact with us that weekend and we... More

We had a dive scheduled but Ryan called the day before to say the water was too rough and visibility poor. Appreciate him not taking us out on what would have been a disappointing time. Will use them in future if we get down that way again!

I've used Tanks-A-Lot Dive Charters for about 10 years now. Capt. Mike and Capt Heidi were the original Captains for this charter, then sold their Charter to Captain Ryan sometime last year. I've only dove with Capt. Ryan once since they changed over, but there was no decrease in the quality of the operation. They use a Coast Guard certified... More

Captain Ryan is extremely knowledgeable and always creates a fun and safe experience for all of the divers I have seen throughout the area - old and new. This is one of the best charters for taking photos and seeing wildlife - as the charter usually stops at some of the best Gulf sites in Tampa. I recommend Tanks-A-Lot Charters... More

I have taken my son and my friends out for their 1st dives with TAL. I have been out with both Capts and different crews. These guys and girls are FIRST CLASS all the way. Their actions and attitudes leave no doubt that they love what they do. If you don't enjoy your dive with this outfit it's your own... More

We went on vacation with my husband being the only scuba diver in the family and decided to send him on this adventure solo and they took really great care of him. Not only do they make sure the divers are safe they take pictures of them to capture their memories at no additional cost! We will always have him... More

This is one of the best run dive operations I have ever been on. The boat and equipment is very well maintained, the staff is professional, well trained and a lot off fun. The dive sights we went to we're amazing .

I went on the Sheridan Wreck dive on Aug 25th with Capt. Ryan and crew and had a great experience. While the waves had a moderate chop, I never felt the conditions were unsafe and I have been diving in rougher waters. It's just part of the routine when you're a diver. I saw a goliath grouper and many other... More

But if you are an occasional recreational diver, even if advanced certified, go elsewhere. My first clue was when one of the regulars told me that they didn't bother with the buddy system. Nor did they suggest to me that I have one, nor offer one. Don't get me wrong, the crew and captain are nice, but even though it... More

I am truly sorry you had a bad trip with us. You specifically requested to go on our wreck dive out to the Sheridan and Blackthorn. These dives are in 80 foot of water. The seas were 3 foot which is average in the Gulf of Mexico going 20 miles out. You were more than welcome to stay with the... More
