Mission Statements

Our goal is to make long term friendships with all our customers and to help them smile. You won’t feel rushed or pressured because we understand that you go diving to get away from the day-to-day routine. While we have to be understanding of time and schedule commitments to afternoon groups, our fast boat and experience allow us to offer you an easy going service in a loosely structured environment. If your group has chartered the boat for the day or weekend, we will seriously consider special requests. We strive to make your visit with us an enjoyable and relaxing one. Join us and experience the Abyss Dive Charter service level difference. Our goal is to make long term friendships with all our customers and to help them smile.
