I had accidentally booked Scuba Steve instead of another dive company that I had planned on calling. At first, we were disappointed that it would be a shore dive (our shore dives in Florida are less than stellar compared to dives a couple of miles...More

Great 2 tank dive. Easy dive with slow descent and assents. I videoed the dive and and had plenty of fish and reefs. The turtles came right up to me.

I had a great dive experience! There was attention to detail, safety, and many sea creatures. I think we saw 4 sea turtles and Steve was knowledgeable about the various fish and invertebrates in the ocean.
