Papa Hog's

Since 1991, this facility has been a full service scuba center. They handle everything from your meals and accommodations to training, and of course, daily shore and open water dives. You don't have to stay on-site to take advantage of their dive services, but over-all it will be a money saver.

Here they specialize in custom dive and snorkel trips as well as dive, snorkeling, and fishing trips for those who want to spend a day on the boat together, but perhaps not everyone in the group dives. They are happy to work to specialize your outing.
