  • Great, friendly staff! I am not sure if all dive shops are created equal or not as this is the only dive shop I have ever been to. One could only hope. These guys talked to me like I have been coming here for years and was their number one customer. They explained the best way to get the most out of my suit I was buying, and I never once felt pressured about anything. I can not wait for my next excuse to go to the dive shop again.
  • You know when someone cares about you. I had my tanks filled there, and when I when to use them two weeks later I thought I got short filled. Josh filled the next tanks for free, and we noticed it had a small leak around the valve. Josh fixed it and did not charge me a thing. This guys are truly amazing. Great people.
  • My husband and I went to dive today with Lisa, who was the instructor, and we were very impressed with the patience and help we were provided. It was my husband's first time and he is ready to go again. Lisa was very helpful and fun even when she had to move us to another area because I was not comfortable at the first dive location. I would highly recomend this laid back, friendly company to anyone that wanted to have a scuba diving experience. You can also gain your certifications there if you want. Cool place...lots of fun.
  • These guys run a very squared away operation. Boat captains and dive masters are good to go. If you're spearing they always drop you on solid spots with fish. We feel safe diving with this operation and will continue to use them in the future.
  • Panama City Diving is my favorite shop around. Their instructor has a ridiculous amount of experience. All the captains and dive masters are knowledgeable and fun. Everytime I dive with them i feel safe and have a great time. The staff is also very knowledgeable about spearfishing if you are looking to learn more about that.
