Scuba diving has never been so breezy...

Leaving from San Diego's closest dock to the ocean, our caring crew will quickly take you to and from the dive sites so you can spend time enjoying what you really came here to do: scuba diving San Diego.

Plus, we make the whole process from booking to boarding easy like shopping on Amazon so all you have to worry about is your air consumption.

*Sea lion lovers: we're the only commercial dive boat making weekly day trips from San Diego to Coronado Islands, in Mexico.
