Dive Charters
Diving aboard the Charter Boat "Viking" offers a unique experience for the diver. The "Viking" is a custom built dive charter boat with ample accommodations for diver comfort and plenty of room for up to 6 divers including a fully enclosed head/changing room and fresh water shower. Not a typical 6 pack dive boat that is nothing more than a private boat operated by a 6 pack captain, she is 30 feet long (10 meters) and 11.5 feet wide (4 meters) she has plenty of room for everyone on board. Each captain on board has a USCG Masters license and more than double the experience of any other dive charter operator in the area. Dive trips are offered year around and we get trips out when other less experienced captains stay at the dock. The "Viking" has all the comfort and safety equipment you would expect on a much larger boat with the convenience and enjoyment of a smaller group. See below for details of all the dive trips we offer. Now with our upgraded engine to 315 hp, we cruise faster and more comfortably than any charter boat in Pensacola.
