Coral Reef Dive Shop offers a variety of trips to divers with all levels of experience from basic to technical divers. We believe that the best way to increase your skills is by getting the proper training and diving as much as possible.

The Black Bart

Once a month we run three day trips to the panhandle of Florida. On these trips it is possible to do 7 dives. We take our Open Water students to Vortex Spring on Friday for three dives. This is a great way for certified divers to test new gear and work on skills. Saturday and Sunday we do two dives on the many wrecks sunk in 35-85ft. of water off of Panama City Beach, Florida. The marine life is abundant and I never tire of observing the ever changing parade of interesting critters.

Coral Reef Dive Shop offers affordable all inclusive packages for these weekend trips that include a room at the Hampton Inn, Panama City Beach . A pool for guests, and a complimentary hot breakfast. Lunch on the boat. A gourmet meal Saturday evening at Capt. Anderson’s, a Panama City Beach landmark.

For a schedule of these trips please check the events page.

Several times in the summer we offer deep wreck trips out of Panama City Beach. These trips go out to the deeper and less dived wrecks further offshore. These wrecks are found in 70-110ft. of water and generally offer better visibility. Occasionally we will run these trips as spearfishing or lobster hunting trips.
