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

Two Boat Dive trip with Catalina Diver Supply was excellent!! Mark and Dennis where fantastic at making the best of less than suburb conditions. The ocean was rough, nothing they could help, so they made every attempt possible to find decent sites for both the divers and snorkels on the boat. The dives were pretty good... a bit stirred up...

The scenery was good, lots of fish, nice kelp forest, a good scuba experience, but... Wet suits were a little wet, not a problem but when it takes your guide 30 minuets to use the bathroom, it's uncomfortable. On top of that, one tank was not filled up all the way so my friend had trouble breathing. He had to... More
