My husband uses Catalina Divers Supply everytime we go to Catalina on business...he likes to treat himself and our teenagers to some fun scuba diving, after business is finished. There are a few Dive Shops to choose from...let me tell you WHY my husband will ONLY use Catalina Divers Supply. He is a retired U.S. Navy Seal and SAFETY must be the number one reason a person should choose a Divers Shop to go out on dives. These people brief you more thoroughly and carefully than any other Dive Shop....true professionals. All things must be considered when trying to make your decision...safety first, an extremely helpful and knowledgeable crew, a well stocked clean and sizeable boat you can move around in comfortably with all the equipment, a boat that is maintained regularly, a friendly crew who truly enjoys being out there in the ocean with you. These people make sure you aren't just going diving...they make the entire experience fun! They take you to a few locations, not just one location (like most others do). They'll stop the boat and let you watch dolphins or anything else you find interesting to stop and watch or take photos of. They're never in a hurry to rush back to land because "your time is up." They provide snacks and refreshments (which is a welcome surprise), their prices are really reasonable...not looking to gouge tourists in the least. Also low price for cameras they sell, for those who forgot their own camera. They put you at ease the minute you step through their front door...again, huge smiles that clearly show people who LOVE having you enjoy the day with them. Last trip we brought a few couples with us, along with our teenagers. Catalina Divers Supply is definitely the BEST choice you can make as far as safety, briefings, helpfulness, a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, an excellent boat. My husband never even told the shop he was a retired Navy Seal...he sat back and studied their every move...along with all the other Dive Shops. No contest. He chose this Dive Shop hands down....these people should be your ONLY choice when trying to decide on the right Dive Shop, to ensure your safety under water in the ocean...having fun at the same time! See you again in July!
