Narcosis Scuba Center is a full service PADI 5-Star rated instructor development center and dive shop located in Tarpon Springs, Florida along Florida's beautiful Gulf Coast.

We operate SCUBA and fishing charters off of our boat, the Narcosis II (docked at the sponge docks just down the road).

We offer a full line of diving gear from the leading manufactures such as Aqua-Lung, Tusa, and Sherwood.

We're easy to find - just head down the Historic District of Tarpon Springs. You can't miss us!

Both novice and experienced divers blend on a 6max dive boat. Narcosis crew are safety conscious, friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Captain keeps tabs on the clarity and visibility. The Gulf is not crystal clear, so conditions can be fickle. They always put you on a nice ledge at 35-40' and there are several wrecks or artificial reefs. I'm... More

This was my second certification course taken through Narcosis and they're FANTASTIC! I did my open water last year with Mu. It went so well I decided to do my advanced open water with him this year. He is a wonderful teacher! He is knowledgeable, patient, and extremely accommodating. The shop is outfitted nicely and the store employees aren't pushy... More

It all started with a visit to the shop where I met Craig. He was very informative and helpful. He set up our dive and made sure we had evert pythons we needed for a great day. On dive day, we met at the shop to pick up gear and make sure all paperwork was in order. Another check to... More

An excellent dive centre in a really nice part of town. After trying to get out diving last minute and being turned down by 3 other charters due to "high wind" Narcosis showed their superior knowledge of the areas dive sites and ran an excellent morning dive with no issues at all. I should give a special mention to Divemaster... More

As a Tarpon Springs local, I strive to give business to local places, but will not return to Narcosis or recommend them after my experience this week. I purchased flippers 4 days ago from "Capt Joyce" and prior to purchasing, inquired about their return policy. Joyce advised that as long as they were unused, there would be no problem returning...

I started diving with Narcosis about a year and a half ago. It's nearly always a good time. They've taken me to wrecks filled with fish, cool ledges with swim throughs, and everything in between. And almost every time, I've come back with dinner. The boat is a little small, which I like since they limit passengers to 6. So,... More
