Several Dates Available: As Florida’s leading Gulf coast port, Pensacola has also seen more than its share of shipwrecks. These range from small pleasure craft to large freighters. Even when the weather is less-than-cooperative, many inshore wrecks remain accessible. It’s safe to say that Pensacola offers something for nearly every serious wreck diver.
Harry’s Dive Shop runs charters with Pensacola Dive Pros, one of Pensacola’s leading dive charter operators. The Reef Cleaner is a comfortable and fast, 30-foot Island Hopper accommodating up to ten divers and operated by a USCG-licensed captain. The boat has a Florida state license for spearfishing in Florida waters. She has a custom dive ladder, cabin for dry storage, emergency O2, first aid kit, and all required USCG equipment. Water and snacks are included on every charter.
