See the Grand Strand from a different perspective underwater. Coastal scuba will take you on WWII and civil war wrecks, in reefs and the newest custom dive site in Myrtle Beach, Barracuda Alley. The site has 20 personnel carriers and a customized barge with swim-throughs. Training is offered for all levels, including wreck diver, deep diver, boat diver. Rentals for all equipment. Price vary greatly depending on the type of dive and equipment rented.
Let me start out with brief background. Trip was to take my 2 sons (19 &15) for first dive experience to Myrtle Bch. Plus my friend and his 17 yr old daughter were doing DSD. I was going for my AOW and my 15 yr old was going for his OW. I live in MI and my sons live in NC. I did almost all of my leg work via email with Jeanne and she was fantastic!
Jeanne got me all set up and organized and made a great deal. Ordered books and DVD for my 15 yr old who did the entire book work ahead of getting there. (Definitely do this as it saves time) The instructor Chris was awesome. He reviewed all the book work, graded the quizzes, and made sure everyone was ok to take the final. (3 hrs total but everyone was prepared so we moved quickly)
The pool work with Chris was great. He made everyone comfortable with the gear and being in the water. The dives went very well and again, the dive masters and instructors made sure everyone was safe and had a good time.
The only two negatives were the boat and the dive shop was a bit unorganized. The boat was the second in their fleet and it rode high in the water. The jump in was about 5', which for any first time person would be a bit scary. (my 15 did great with it). Getting out was a challenge again due to height.
As for the shop, it needed a bit of organization. The counter was cluttered, boxes of new items were open but not put away, very limited amount of diving gear. Class room was a bit messy. The pool on sight was great. Clean and well maintained.
It may seem a bit picky to find little things to complain about, but it will always be the little things that can give you a good or bad impression. However, I wasn’t there for the dive shop and was ok with the disorganization.
The wonderful thing of the experience was how great everyone treated the customers. Every person that was involved truly cared about the people on the boat and dives to make sure it was a positive experience. At the dock everything was well organized. You were clear on what to do and when to do it.
If you want to experience a professional dive operation, please go to Coastal Scuba. You will have fun and know you are in good hands!

This was where my first dive ever occurred, their knowledge and experience of the whole situation made me never want to dive again. There equipment is faulty and they are only worried about making money and not satisfying their customers. If you want to dive in Myrtle Beach find a different scuba shop to go through or else you will go through a terrible experience that could have been avoided.
Spent the weekend on a trip to Florida with a dive master and instructor from this outfit. This is a fantastic group of friendly individuals that offer support for beginning divers and continued excitement for experienced ones. On site store offers a wide variety of items to be purchased. If what you want is not there, the staff will go to great lengths to find it for you. Check it out!!
