We had a blast diving with the folks at Panama City Diving. The boat is very spacious and all all of the employees are very knowledgeable and friendly. They will continue to be our preferred dive shop in the Panama City area.

The captain and crew were top notch on an afternoon two tank dive trip out of Panama City. We dove the Bart and #14 bridge span. I have zero complaints.
