We have been diving in Southern California for 18 years. When diving the San Diego kelp beds or wreck alley, we always choose the Marissa. Lora and her crew do an excellent job. Good dive briefings, lots of help with gear etc. and lots of yummy food. Having Nitrox fills available is a huge plus. Surface interval snuggle time with... More

We made a special trip to San Diego to dive the wrecks off the Marissa. The crew was great, the food yummy (thanks for a nice lunch with the 3-tank trip!). We had a good time, and the other divers were very nice.

I would write a review based on the actual diving, but I can't because I never got to. I started communications through email, which I received one response to. Then I had repeatedly called and left messages. The one time I did get through to a person, they told me they would call me right back and never did. It... More

I was in San Diego recently and was able to get some deep diving in with Marissa Dive Charters. The day I was there we did the U.S.S. Hogan wreck (125 feet deep). The boat was set up well for diving, with on-board tank refills. The crew took great care of me, providing me with a wetsuit, gloves, and dive... More

I have had the chance of going out on the Marissa several times this summer and every trip has been a great experience. They have a very professional and knowledgeable crew, that nonetheless know how to keep things fun and to make everybody feel well taken care of.

Great boat and great crew (Lora, Dan, Tyler, Ash, Robbin and everyone else!!) Super friendly and helpful staff, good snacks in between dives, (plus hot water bags for the chilly days!) Onboard air compressor with full nitrox blending too! I book charters on the Marissa before I even book my flights to San Diego!

The first time I went on this boat, it was my first ever boat dive experience and I was sea sick the entire time :(. BUT I got back out there with the proper meds and had a blast! Captain Lora is so awesome. And so was the dive master. I was cold so she actually got me hot bags... More

I was spoiled by a lot of dives in tropical destinations but I loved diving with the crew of the Marissa. Great food, great boat and great all around service.

Jonathan (son) and I had a fabulous time on the Marissa Dive Boat with three great dives. A huge thank you goes out to Lora (our captain) and Dan (our dive master) for an outstanding job in taking care of everyone! We both look forward to diving with you again in the future. All I can say is DIVE WITH... More
