Comments It had been at least 5 years since we last dived Destin. We used ScubaTech the last time because I was impressed with the way they treated me and my daughter (17 at the time). We received the same great care this time with my 15 &18 year old sons.

While the diving in Destin is not the greatest, going out with a competent and fun crew makes the ride enjoyable. Capt. Nancy gave a full and complete breifing before each dive even though all divers aboard were very experienced. The crew helped change tanks and assisted on both our entries and exits, which is something that doesn't always happen with dive operators. It shows that she and her crew take diving seriously.

We were rained out two days in a row. The shop notified us well in advance of the cancellation, so I didn't have to wake the teenagers. While the diving itself was nothing to write home about, it's always fun diving with your kids, and they got to see a quality dive operator in action.
