This is a top notch place to dive. The people are friendly, the showers/baths are clean, and the accessibility is great. I would definitely recommend checking this place out. The paddlefish and huge 727 were some of my favorites to see here.

The staff is great. Excellent about safety. There are outs of things to explore under water. It’s go so cold and no visibility. Nothing they can control though. They were great to fit us with gear and help anyway.
