You will not be disappointed

“If you are looking for your son or daughter to learn how to swim in a loving, respectful, and friendly environment, then look no further. You will not be disappointed.”

As a diver of 30+ years

“As a diver of 30+ years, with a background in oceanography and marine biology, I look for a dive shop that can bring more to the game than snorkels and a regulator check. Ocean First Divers is superb! They blend a high level of competent services, skilled assistance with training, an exciting menu of exotic travel.”
