I rented a full set of gear from them and did some dives in the dive park. They were nice well priced and the gear was good. I would recommend them for shore diving and I am sure they know the places via boat.

Loved diving with these guys. I didn't have a regulator and they hooked me up for nothing. The kelp forests were all torn out when we went, but the CDS made the dives great. Safety first. We had two decent dives and returned. Lots of...More
