I just completed my second series of dives with this shop, and found them to be personable, professional, and fun. I'm a fairly new diver, and my first dip in salt water was with this group and I was instantly hooked. They didn't make me feel like a newbie, but as a fellow diver. They didn't micromanage or baby me,... More

I visited Panama City Diving to have my first dive somewhere that wasn't a quarry in the landlocked states. Conditions were bad on the day originally planned for our dive, so staff helped reschedule for another time during the trip, and were very helpful. The actual trip went without a hitch, and we were able to have a very enjoyable... More

It was a lot of fun. The rental equipment was new, the boat was very spacious. The crew was very attentive on the boat. We were on a wreck and a bridge section. Tons of fish. Saw one huge turtle. Very cool.

We could not have had a better experience. This was my first time diving since my certification almost 10 years ago, so I signed up for the refresher course...which I highly recommend. Josh took me out for a one-on-one session along the jetty off the beach at St. Andrews State Park and made me feel extremely comfortable with the equipment,... More

Pat, his brother and the rest of the crew at PCD were wonderful! My husband and I dive roughly once per year, so I get nervous and like to hire a dive-master to "babysit." They did not have one available, but with the nature of the dive sites, it wasn't necessary. Pat made sure we were taken care of. We... More

These guys were excellent accommodating us. We are visiting and staying a weekend to a weekend and couldn't do the typical dive certification within the typical time line, and they were more than happy to accommodate around our time. Bryce was our instructor and he did an amazing job. Whenever we are in PCB we will be doing everything dive... More

Josh did a great job with the teaching and getting us "geared up." No small feat. He focused on making it a fun trip and all of us are ready to go again!
