A Chat with Gulf Coast Divers
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Gulf Coast Divers is a professional dive store located in the heart of Carrollwood. We love what we do and it's apparent the moment you walk into our store. We are the only store to offer memberships to our customers, making it much more convenient and affordable to get out there and dive.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students are required to complete 2 days of open water training apart from the swimming pool. Each day incurs a cost of $50 and are NOT included in this deal. Students must also provide the following. Mask, snorkel, fins, boots, weights & bag. Academic training materials and tuition are included.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
SCUBA diving is unlike anything you've ever done before. The feeling of being weightless, surrounded by fish, corals and other tropicals, along with the element of surprise is something only a certified diver can appreciate and you land goers can only imagine.
What do you love most about your job?
It brings me great joy to see the smile on peoples faces after their first dive, or listening to the epic dive stories I here from former students after they return from a trip. We enjoy meeting new people here at GCD and having you be a part of our dive team.
