  • I had a great experience with Charleston Scuba. I became a certified scuba diver yesterday, 09/02/18. The team was great! I got very seasick, and they were just the best! They helped me every way they possibly could, to include taking care of my gear for me. They encouraged me to complete my dives & kept a close eye on me under water to make sure I was ok. The dives were great! Tom, Tim, and Michelle were fantastic! I am so glad I was able to complete my dives. I would not have been able to do it if it were not for them. A million thanks!
  • My 13 year old brother and I did a Discover Scuba Diving course with Chuck and it was fantastic! Chuck was very knowledgable and patient (especially during our gear malfunction!). I definitely recommend Charleston Scuba and cannot wait to get my full certificate from them!
