My wife and I made a trip to dive St. Andrews State Park over Columbus Day. We visited the Panama City Diving shop in order to pick up a few things. Being new divers and not having ever dove St. Andrews SP we had many...More

The staff was friendly enough and the dive instructor was very personable, but the tanks were not full and one blew an o-ring as we got ready at the park. Although I'd spoken to staff at the dive shop the day before and been assured...More

I though about giving 4 stars because of the crew's lame jokes, but that is one of the things that makes diving with PCD so fun. They cannot guarantee water conditions at dive sites but they have fun getting you there and back. If you...More

Excellent diving experience. Crew was friendly, helpful, and safety conscious. The boat was large, which made for a smooth ride. But they don't overload the boat so it isn't crowded. They cater to spear fishing too.

Staff was friendly, knowledgable and really made the overall experience excellent. I was able to finish my 60ft open water certification over the weekend and had lots of fun.

Friendly and helpful staff, large and comfortable boat, overall a great experience. Don't be fooled by similarly named dive shop in the area, this is the one and only. Whether diving inshore wrecks, offshore wrecks or spearfishing, these folks are the best, hands down.

Terrific crew, super spearfishing. Amazing experience. First time diving the panhandle of FL, and I definitely will be back. These guys are the real deal, and they know spear fishing!

Sorry not to answer sooner -- yes I have dived with lenses many times. I have even opened my eyes underwater without the mask, but this is a risk that they could come out. I've done it many times in a pool also. So I say... More

While we can't promise anything as the sea tends to be widely variable, we commonly see snappers, groupers, spade fish, crabs, Rays, blennies, and urchins. Less commonly we see Dolphins, eagle Rays, turtes and manatees. I... More
