My family and I went out with diver ed and found to be a fun trip and was interesting to see the creatures he was able to find at the bottom of the ocean! I would highly recommend it for a children’s trip!

A nice trip that is best for ages 4-12 even though we were traveling with a group and all had a few laughs. Diver Ed and his wife were very welcoming and gave everyone a chance to interact with the treasures that he brought on...More

Our family went with our two children, ages 5 and nearly 3. It was a fantastic time- Diver Ed couldn’t be more fun. The kids learned a ton and really enjoyed touching all the sea creatures.

Diver Ed’s Dive-In Theater should NOT be missed. I would add it’s a great value as well given the program and fun. While it’s geared towards kids, my kids LOVED it - ages 15, 12, and 7 - my wife and I would totally go...More

The show was fantastic - my daughter enjoyed Diver Ed and his silly humor. Seeing Ed on the seafloor and explaining what we are seeing on TV was excellent. Afterwards, he brought everything up and he talked about every sea creature he brought up. It...More

All the children seemed to have a good time from ages 3-10. The material is written to appeal to children but it had too many references to butts, Diver Dan getting molested by a seal, and other animals getting it on. It was entertaining and...More

We had a good time. I think it is most suited for kids age 9 and under. It's a bit difficult to hear what Driver Ed was saying underneath the water, but the pictures on the screen were very clear. I guess that's just how...More
