If you have ever been snorkeling and want to take it to the next level, our scuba diving or Freediving classes are for you. Our discover Scuba class is perfect for the first timer down on vacation with only so much time to squeeze in everything they want to do. Now is a great time to learn to scuba dive and start a new adventure.
The Steel Slinger is based out of Treasure Island Marina. This boat is a custom made 36′ Newton dive boat. She is USCG inspected for 30 regular passengers or 20 divers…. but we limit dive trips to just 14 scuba divers to insure comfort and space for everyone. The dive charters head to local shipwrecks and metal bridge spans that aggregate massive schools of our scaly friends.
Spearfishing is essentially bow hunting underwater. It is neither easy to master or cheap to get into….. and its more addictive than crack. If you want to get clean, ethical non-industrial protein that doesn’t have any hormones, pesticides, or antibiotics and don’t mind wearing life support equipment to “go shopping” this might be for you.
If you have ever been snorkeling and want to take it to the next level, our scuba diving classes and training are for you. Our discover Scuba class is perfect for the first timer down on vacation with only so much time to squeeze in everything they want to do. If you want to BE a diver though, the next level (Scuba Certification) earns you a card that is recognized in all dive shops the world over. These dive classes take three days of in-water training as well as academic work to complete. So we strongly recommend planning your class in advance if you want to embark on this journey.
For already certified divers we offer guided dives from shore as well as boat dives to local shipwrecks for divers ready to do to the “deep end” of the pool. We also offer training for certified divers wanting to pick up additional recreation training classes, specialty classes based on unique local diving opportunities and even technical dive training.
