Recreational Scuba Charters

Ledges , Reefs, and Wrecks!

The Gulf of Mexico is one of the most diverse dive destinations in the world. Clearwater Florida may have the best rated beaches in the world but just offshore it gets better! 

During the late Pleistocene Era the coastline of Florida extended out beyond what is now known as the "Middle grounds" over 100 miles beyond today's coastline. Glacial melt that occurred between 30,000 and 5,000 years ago submerged a diverse landscape that today is represented by limestone ledges, hard bottom, and areas of mixed rock and sand that are amazing to explore with SCUBA gear! 

In areas where the natural limestone features have eroded or been covered by centuries of sediment and sand Pinellas County has installed Artificial Reef. In one of the finest and most thorough programs in the world the Pinellas Artificial Reef consists of TONS of concrete, old bridges, barges, and ships sank to provide habitat gulf fish and a sportsman's paradise ALL of these reef site are accessible to recreational SCUBA divers.   


Our target is "recreational" divers, SCUBA classes, and shipwreck divers. 

We can accommodate up to six divers comfortably. Our boat is equipped with full safety gear, first aid, emergency Oxygen, and a freshwater wash down.

Wide decks, a large dive platform and easy to climb ladder adds to ease of your dives. We have professional divemasters to oversee your dives.
