“First rate dive operator in Pensacola!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Several of us from my dive club, the Bay Area Divers, took a road trip from the Houston, Texas area to experience diving in Florida. One of the highlights of our trip was diving on the USS Oriskany. We booked our dive with the Scuba Shack and their boat "The Wet Dream."

The booking process was easy. Even though we booked this trip as a group, each member was still required to call the dive shop and guarantee their individual spot with a credit card. The staff was friendly and helpful and answered all of my questions.

This dive op also offers 100 cf tanks as well as Nitrox (for those who are certified for its use). For diving the Oriskany, the Scuba Shack recommended Nitrox 30.

The transit time to and from the Oriskany is two hours each way, so one must plan for an entire day dedicated for this.

Pre-departure and pre-dive briefings were very thorough and professional. The staff ensured all were well hydrated at all times and showed concern for our well being.

During our surface interval between dives, we were given freshly sliced oranges and pineapples. Lunch was grilled hot dogs. After our second, and final, dive, we were offered hand cranked strawberry ice cream and freshly sliced watermelon during the trip back to the dock.

Divemasters on our trip were very helpful and pointed out many interesting things to see on the wreck.

I highly recommend The Scuba Shack for those wishing to dive in Pensacola!
