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.

First time in Catalina's island. I consider myself a novice diver so really appreciate having a guide around. The cold water aspect of dive not fun but went rather well. Diver master was very patient and went through all the gear checks and pre-dive briefs without rushing. I was the only diver other than the dive master so I got... More

We signed up to try scuba diving. I had never been and my husband hasn't dived in 30 years. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They were very patient ! I totally struggled and was never able to dive below the surface. My husband got deeper but had problems with his mask and tank. We did enjoy snorkeling. A lot of... More

This was my first cold-water dive, and I was pretty nervous about it--the awkward gear; the unfamiliarity of the sensations; the thick wetsuit. I couldn't possibly have had a better guide than Mark, who took the time to discuss every aspect of the dive, to dial in my gear to the finest detail and keep a very close eye on... More

I'm always glad the truck is there on Casino point so we don't have to take tanks and weights to dive. The staff is always cooperative and helpful. So far we haven't needed to rent anything else from them, but it's nice to know they would have anything we needed available.

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 food and drink on the large dive boat. Registration was easy. If your'e looking for... More

Went on a two-dive boat trip with Dennis and Mike. Both were very friendly and professional and had a lot of fun in and out of the water. My favorite crew member is Stanley, the tough-looking shih-tzu. The whole staff is very friendly and provided excellent service. I would definitely dive with them again.

As a scuba instructor with over 1,500 dives I am well aware of what it takes to provide a great dive experience. From my first contact with Lizzy to checking in with Eric all went seamlessly. And from there it only got better. My guide Ruth greeted me with a smile and was fully prepared for me. All the gear... More
