An excellent dive centre in a really nice part of town. After trying to get out diving last minute and being turned down by 3 other charters due to "high wind" Narcosis showed their superior knowledge of the areas dive sites and ran an excellent morning dive with no issues at all. I should give a special mention to Divemaster... More

My husband and I booked a last minute trip into the gulf and had a great time, The owner of the shop is a short woman, and as I am also short, she gave me some great advice about managing entry and exit. As my husband and I had been out of the water for a few months, we paid... More

As a Tarpon Springs local, I strive to give business to local places, but will not return to Narcosis or recommend them after my experience this week. I purchased flippers 4 days ago from "Capt Joyce" and prior to purchasing, inquired about their return policy. Joyce advised that as long as they were unused, there would be no problem returning...

I did an open water dive certification with Mustufa. He is extremely patient and makes sure to take his time with each student. I had such a fun time and feel extremely prepared to dive on my own. Mustufa is an amazing instructor! I would suggest him to anyone wanting to get certified. The shop is also extremely nice and... More

I started diving with Narcosis about a year and a half ago. It's nearly always a good time. They've taken me to wrecks filled with fish, cool ledges with swim throughs, and everything in between. And almost every time, I've come back with dinner. The boat is a little small, which I like since they limit passengers to 6. So,... More

Mustafa was an incredible instructor and was very patient with me and accommodating with my schedule as well. I give him my highest recommendation as an instructor. I look forward to him being my instructor for my next certification.

I can't say enough good things about Narcosis Scuba. I went to them for my PADI certification and had a great experience with the instructor Mustafa. He took the time to ensure everyone understood the material and was comfortable performing the skills required to complete the course. I have since completed additional dives with Narcosis and have always had a... More

The dive crew took us to two amazing dive spots that were a bit aways but great spots. They really seem to care about their divers. Unfortunately during our trip a few people got sea sick but the crew knew exactly what to do to help everyone. Can't wait to go out with them again!

Dove Paul's reef and Breakers reef. Great dive on a beautifully sunny day. Crew was very friendly and knowledgeable about dive sites, and communicated dive plans and safety procedures clearly and thoroughly. Our dive leader Finch was very skillful in navigating the reefs, pointing out several animals I would have otherwise completely missed. He was also very easy to follow... More

The divers at Narcosis Scuba might be excellent dive masters. I would not know, as my dive with them was cancelled with less than 12 hours notice -- too soon for me to be able to leave my scuba gear at home and avoid the airline baggage fees. Turns out they need 3 people to send the boat out, and... More
