Purchased a tandem kayak, snorkeling gear, etc. Salesperson was friendly and took his time answering all if questions, recommending gear etc. All with no pressure. He laid out the options, gave us his opinion (only after we asked) and was a joy to deal with. Will definitely be back.

These folks are super knowledgable and friendly. I have a (well used) snorkel that I use all the time, but it needed a new purge valve. Michelle was not only able to fix it, but showed me how she did it. The other young woman there gave me some good advice on cleaning gear. When I need new gear, this is where I will go.

I had the pleasure of doing 4 SCUBA dives with Daly's Dock and Dive Center in Port Saint Joe recently as part of an underwater archaeology training course. From the moment I walked in the shop, I was impressed. Ann Marie was the first to greet our group, and she was so friendly and helpful. She and her husband Ed are clearly passionate about providing exemplary service. Their selection of merchandise is great, and they had an excellent sale on wetsuits that I couldn't resist. There are beautiful kitties in the shop, and the owners work tirelessly to save feral cats and to get them fixed and vaccinated to help reduce the population of unwanted cats in this rural county. I truly admire their compassionate hearts! I am also a SCUBA diving instructor, and I'm always looking for great shops like Daly's. The owners and crew went above and beyond to make sure our experience was stellar. Daly's is also very safe...we waited for a storm to clear before doing the afternoon dives. Setting up gear is a bit different here...you set up in the back parking lot before loading on the boat, then you walk across the street to meet the boat. Though everyone there was excellent, we mainly interacted with Gabbi and Michelle who we absolutely loved! Michelle is a great boat captain and put us right on the Vamar. Due to our large group, they contracted with another boat captain named Mike who was very experienced and kind. I had left a sea urchin shell on his boat, and he took the time to come back to the shop to return it to me. Also, I get cold easily, and between dives, Ann Marie brought us awesome boat coats we borrowed to keep warm! Customer service could not have been better. I had not been to Port Saint Joe in several years, and I was blown away at what a hip, trendy town it has become. There are many wonderful restaurants and attractions (including the lighthouse) within walking distance of the dive shop. Our group took full advantage of the prime location and dined, shopped, and did some sightseeing after our excellent experience with Daly's Dock and Dive Center. I highly recommend this shop and will definitely return!

The people here are very friendly and knowledgeable. Don't hesitate to speak with the staff here if you have no prior knowledge of diving. In my experience they treat everyone the same and do it with small town charm. Great place in a great town.
