The Captains, Guides, Instructors and Staff are all extended family. We strive to treat all our customers as family members we are meeting for the first time

Our Motto: "Observing and Preserving Nature Above, In, and Under Water."

Aware Dive FlagThe Staff are involved in multiple efforts to Preserve Nature including Project AwareCrew 3000, Inc , and the Triton Society.  Our commitment extends to making a donation for every certification we process as a 100% Aware Partner Center.

We encourage the Observation of nature on all of our tours. There is a lot to see. Everything from Wild boars and deer to manatees.

Above the water we have the Eco and Manatee Tours, River Cruises and Tours.  In the water we offer snorkeling with the manatees as well as snorkel tours down Rainbow River.  Under the water offers a whole new world of possibilities with SCUBA. Training from Discover experiences through professional certifications.  We also provide guides and dive buddies for local diving. We are offering trips to explore the oceans and reefs elsewhere. We will be visiting Bonaire and Mexico in Fall 2014.
