The Narcosis captain and crew are outstanding. This operation is great for any level of diver experience.., but if you are new to diving in general, or to drift diving in particular, I would recommend you consider Narcosis as your indoctrination in South Florida diving. Captain Alex is very friendly, yet he conducts a no-joke, thorough briefing about his boat's safety equipment, emergency procedures, and how dives will be conducted. (Boat briefings are serious stuff and too many captains look at the process as a necessary evil, giving the briefing a half-hearted effort.) On this particular day we had Divemasters Chris and Valentino on board. These guys were terrific. Both were kind and helpful with making sure gear was on board and stowed away, and that each diver was prepared for the dive. Dive site briefings include a topographical map review on a flat screen TV in the boat's salon. On board this day was a junior open water diver on his first post-certification dives. Chris and Valentino took great care in watching over this young man. When it is time to gear up, the deck team ensures that everyone is equally prepared by conducting a verbal safety check (what amounts to a group "buddy check" i.e., BWARF) just before it is time to enter the water. Some veteran divers may look at this as overkill, but ensuring all divers are 100% ready to dive benefits the group that enter together as each dive is Divemaster guided. The Narcosis dive boat is uniquely designed and is an excellent diving platform. The boat is longer (48 feet?) and wider than most, offering ample room to move about. The salon is open to the bow, which allows for the breeze to flow through the salon. (Some boat salons do not have sufficient ventilation and diesel exhaust can linger in this enclosed area.) There is a center railing that runs midship to stern, making for a great handhold as you make your way to the swim step. The two ladders are easy to ascend with two vertical poles that offer stability when exiting the water. If you are from out of the area, you can arrange with Narcosis to have tanks and rental equipment on hand for your dive day. Not having to lug tanks from car to dock can be a welcomed relief. While each dive is Divemaster-led, experienced divers have the option of venturing away from the group so long as they carry their own surface marker.

I’ve been diving for over 6 years and the Narcosis Dive Company crew is the best I’ve come across. Captain Alex, Chris, Ally, and Sarah were fantastic! They interacted with everyone on the boat and we truly had a great trip with lots of laughs. Everyone went above and beyond to try and help those feeling seasick. They were such an attentive crew at all times. We will dive with Narcosis every time we are in Florida.

This was our first boat dive and the crew was so helpful during every step. They were very patient when we were slow but quick to assist when we really.needed it. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Book with Narcosis- you will be happy you did!!

Narcosis is a top notch operation. Captain Alex knows exactly where to drop his divers. The guides dive masters are knowledgeable and take time to assure all is well and love to point out various fishes, eels, turtles, lobsters and other interesting marine life/coral formations. The 48 Pro Dive Boat is well kept and the crew has always been accommodating.

Captain Alex and his crew where so very kind to us. Visited from Texas and he warned us the waves where between 3-5 feet. Offered us a full refund on the trip before we departed . Went anyway and got sea sick for the first time. His crew graciously cleaned up my mess, assured me I wasn’t an inconvenience to them and even used gas and time to take me back to land. Def will be back ... on calmer conditions of course!! Thanks again
