Diving off the Alabama Gulf Coast provides adventurers with the opportunity to explore a variety of underwater landscapes, from amazing shipwrecks, artificial reefs, to natural limestone formations like Sherry's Shelf. Looking for something shallow?  Then check out one of the most popular beach dive sites in the area is the Whiskey Wreck, a hundred plus year old sunken ship resting on the sandy ocean floor only a one-hundred-fifty yard swim south of West Beach, just a short drive from the dive shop.

From huge schools of fish to elusive octopus and majestic rays, the waters off the Alabama Gulf Coast are home to a rich and diverse ecosystem. Whether you're a seasoned diver or a novice exploring the underwater world for the first time, there's always something new and exciting to discover beneath the surface.
