Many people are not aware that there is some EXCELLENT scuba diving just off the coast of Southwest Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. Lee County is home to over 20 different artificial reef sites, many of which have between 5 and 10 different areas to dive within them! (See a map of Lee County artificial reefs here) Each site is good for their own reasons and your choice of dive site should depend on what your goals are for your scuba diving adventure. For example, in the winter months we’ve seen thousands of snook (no spearfishing these, sorry spearfishermen!) at the shallower sites closer inland and the Greater Amberjacks are plentiful further offshore. Your choice of dive site also depends on your level of dive certification – sites like the USCGC Mohawk are limited to Advanced level divers and above. Looking for lobster? We’ve got dive sites to find them as well! H2O Offshore Adventures offers scuba diving charters to any dive site of your choice right here in Lee County, off the coast of Fort Myers, Sanibel & Captiva Islands.
Before you book your dive charter, you should have in mind what your goals are and contact us with any questions ahead of time so that we can best tailor your adventure to your expectations.
Let’s talk safety: H2O Offshore Adventures LLC carries all US Coast Guard required equipment, as well as EPIRB devices and a satellite tracker for use in unlikely emergencies. .
Our captain is also a NAUI certified scuba diving instructor who can help answer any questions that you may have before you plunge into the Gulf of Mexico on your scuba adventure. Your booking comes with weights, but if additional equipment needed you can rent from one of our local scuba shops. Upgraded high pressure steel tanks and Nitrox are also available upon request – just choose your options during your booking!
Divers are not required to have, but are all highly encouraged to have DAN insurance to cover them in the event of an emergency. When you arrive for your adventure, be sure to bring your DAN card as well as your dive certification card to present during boarding.
