I spoke to Captain Bob, yesterday 7/28/18, and he is no longer operating in Bradenton Beach. He can soon be found in Key Largo with Rainbow Reef Dive Center. I wish him Good Luck!

Great Dive ... in the water saw huge Manta Ray, then Goliath Grouper and largest flounder I have ever seen. Wish the weather was better to dive more.

Went on another 2-tank dive trip with Blue Water explorers. I always have lots of fun with them. They always have safety as high priority. And they have the knowledge of so many dive sites such as artificial reefs, ledges, barges.

Choppy waters and chilly weather added some challenge to the dive, but everything was done safely and professionally, without any drama. All on board felt comfortable despite some adverse conditions.
