I'm an open water diver with about 40 dives under my belt, but in the Caribbean in warm water. Joel was a great guide for a trip to the park, and was super patient with my fumblings with the 7mm wetsuit and a lot more weight than I'm used to! I got to check "sea lion" off my bucket list... More

Went diving and needed to rent some equipment like tanks and dive computer. The process was easy and they were very friendly even though they were very busy. Returning the gear was just as easy. Buying gear is a little pricey but you are on an island were everything is shipped.

Had a great afternoons beach dive. My guided dive was with Chris. He was very friendly, pleasant and knowledgeable on the area we where diving. He was able to show me some amazing giant sea bass along with the lovely kelp forest that this area is known for. The dive center is well equipped and the rental gear is good... More

After 16 years of diving I decided to up my certifications and go for my rescue diver. After one conversation with Tina, I knew that this was the place for me. They accommodated me with a private class knowing that I only had 2 days to complete the diving. Chris was an awesome instructor and was very thorough in his... More

Angela, our dive master, made me feel comfortable and safe! She was very competent and also showed us kelp fish, lobsters and a great time diving around the kelp. For a new OW certified diver, I had a lot of fun!

I did a 2-tank boat dive and a 1-tank private DM shore dive at the Casino dive park with Catalina Scuba Luv and had an outstanding experience. Easy to book, and rental equipment was in good shape. The Scrambler is a great dive boat and Captain Bob and DM J.D. were very professional. I'd especially like to give a shout-out... More

My wife and I dive worldwide and decided to give Catalina Island a try as it is almost right down the street. The shop is well stocked and we were greeted with big smiles even though they were busy. Absolutely an awesome experience. Eel, Horn Sharks, Lobster, Schools of bait fish, Sheepshead and crab. Big crab. Their dive boat is... More

I was on the island for the day this week and these Guys are great. Chris took me on 2 dives at the scuba park. I had a problem with my computer and he took care of an alternate and saved the dives. Personable, easy going group of people I'll definitely dive with them again.

Bob and Tina are the owner operators and they love what they do. Tina was great in getting me into a boat with only 3 other divers. Min = 4. Bob was a great captain and JP was a strong Dive Master. I rented all the equipment and really loved the experience. The boat is relatively new and it was... More

Well run outfit, knowledgeable staff, and a really nice boat. This was my first trip to Avalon, so I'm not familiar with the competition, but If you're a diver I don't think you can go wrong diving with Scuba Luv.
