Reasonably decent couple of dives - nothing spectacular to see, although that could just have been bad luck.
However, the very vague and basic approach to safety was something I've not experienced on previous dive trips.
My wife and I made a trip to dive St. Andrews State Park over Columbus Day. We visited the Panama City Diving shop in order to pick up a few things. Being new divers and not having ever dove St. Andrews SP we had many...More
The staff was friendly enough and the dive instructor was very personable, but the tanks were not full and one blew an o-ring as we got ready at the park. Although I'd spoken to staff at the dive shop the day before and been assured...More
I though about giving 4 stars because of the crew's lame jokes, but that is one of the things that makes diving with PCD so fun. They cannot guarantee water conditions at dive sites but they have fun getting you there and back. If you...More
Excellent diving experience. Crew was friendly, helpful, and safety conscious. The boat was large, which made for a smooth ride. But they don't overload the boat so it isn't crowded. They cater to spear fishing too.
Arrived at the boat, greeted by Pat and Josh. Things were organized and they provided snacks and drinks. Answered all the questions to the best of their ability... then once we got to the dive sites everything went smoothly. highly recommend this company if you...More
Had a fabulous experience very knowledgeable town folk who know what customer service is! Will definitely use this shop again for future dives & training! Coincidence part of the divers were from the GA Aquarium I'll be on the website!
Friendly and helpful staff, large and comfortable boat, overall a great experience. Don't be fooled by similarly named dive shop in the area, this is the one and only. Whether diving inshore wrecks, offshore wrecks or spearfishing, these folks are the best, hands down.

Sorry not to answer sooner -- yes I have dived with lenses many times. I have even opened my eyes underwater without the mask, but this is a risk that they could come out. I've done it many times in a pool also. So I say go for it. Long term, you can also get a mask fitted with corrective lenses

While we can't promise anything as the sea tends to be widely variable, we commonly see snappers, groupers, spade fish, crabs, Rays, blennies, and urchins. Less commonly we see Dolphins, eagle Rays, turtes and manatees. I... More
While we can't promise anything as the sea tends to be widely variable, we commonly see snappers, groupers, spade fish, crabs, Rays, blennies, and urchins. Less commonly we see Dolphins, eagle Rays, turtes and manatees. I have still never seen a shark where we do the DSDs though.
