Local Diving With DeepWater Scuba

Captain Steve Summers discovered his passion for diving in a cloudy, cold Oklahoma quarry while earning his first scuba certification in 1978. He immediately fell in love with the underwater world and scuba diving quickly became his life’s passion!

Captain Steve has glided alongside pelagic in Tahiti, found Nemo on the Great Barrier Reef and witnessed breathtaking, 1000-foot walls in Roatan. However, his Florida home also has provided magnificent scuba diving opportunities. From the Gulf of Mexico to the Florida Keys, and numerous crystal-clear inland springs in between, Florida is one of the world’s premier diving locations.

A sunken aircraft carrier, tanks, barges, beautiful reefs, bait-fish-balls as big as a house, Goliath grouper the size of a VW, rays, turtles, dolphin and shark are just a few of the reasons Florida ranks so high on everyone’s diving bucket list.
