Dive Charters



Bay Breeze works with some of the areas finest Charter Captains and together we are proud to serve the local and visiting Dive community year round, 7 days a week

We are running trips regularly to sites such as the USS Massachusetts, Joe Patti Memorial Reef, Tex Edwards Barge and many other popular sites in the Gulf.  We also offer snorkeling trips and Sunset cruises.

On our more Shallow dive trips like the Massachusetts and the Jetties we welcome snorklers along when spots are available.

Massachusetts trips are $105.00 per person plus gear and/or tank rentals.

Ask about our Spearfishing Charters....

Here are our basic rates:

Two tank dives

Inshore Charter - $105
(within 9 miles of the Pensacola pass, or from shore approximately)

Midshore Charter - $135
(past 9 miles to 20 miles of the Pensacola pass, or from shore approximately)

Offshore - $175
(past 20 miles from the Pensacola pass, including the USS Oriskany)

Charter prices are per person and trips need a minimum 4 divers to go.  Distance calculations, fees & minimums ultimately depend upon the charter Captain you are booked with.


Three tank dives depend upon the location and Captain's discretion

Tech dives and specialty dives (call for rates and locations)
Bay Breeze books on a 6-pack charter boat. Call for times and locations!

Prices may vary depending upon the Charter operator so please call to verify the rates and availability. Also rates may change at any time prior to the day of the charter depending upon fuel prices and other economic factors in this volatile economy. During the summer months charters will very often book up several weeks ahead for inshore and months ahead for the USS Oriskany so book your trips ahead.

What should I expect on my trip?

All Charters whether inshore or offshore require a minimum of 4 to 10 passengers to make a trip depending upon the size of the vessel and must meet those minimum requirements. Most Charters will have water on board for their passengers and many will provide fruit to snack on during the surface interval or trip but you are encouraged to bring your own beverages and food on board for your trip and dive and as always drink plenty of fluids so as not to dehydrate during your diving excursion. (see the Charter check list link below)

Our Chartered vessels are operated by Captains who are licensed and certified by the United States Coast Guard and all Vessels meet USCG specification and have been inspected accordingly. All Divers booking with us will have to show their Open water certification or "C" card before boarding. If you have lost your card we can verify through most agencies within a day but NOT the morning of the charter. For USS Oriskany trips proof of dive experience is required and a minimum of 20 dive overall with 2 being within the prior year of the charter. Log books must be supplied for verification prior to the charter boat leaving the dock.

Charter Cancellations and Refunds: 

All Charters require a non refundable deposit or full payment to secure a seat. Any cancellations within 48 hours of the trip will not be eligible for a refund and will be charged full price for the charter plus any mixed gas reserved for their charter.
All cancellations due to poor weather/water conditions or per the captain of the vessel will receive a credit for another Charter on another date of equal or lesser value or an in store credit to be used for in store purchases or online purchases from Refunds will be up to the discretion of the management and all charter refunds will be less a 6% fee to cover processing fees and booking costs and time.

Important Notice about Spearfishing

Spearfishing can be done from most Charters within Florida State waters on all vessels and in Federal waters on vessels that have the proper licensing and reef fishing permits from the U.S. Dept. of Commerce and National Marine Fisheries. At Bay Breeze we are all avid Spearfishers so we enjoy helping everyone planning their next spearfishing adventures here in the Gulf of Mexico. Contrary to what you might hear,  we are not aware of any shops that are the local authorities or "experts" although they may claim that title. Don't be fooled we all have good and bad days in the water and learn new things every day, well at least those of us that are honest about it anyway.

We don't have our own spearfishing tournament yet but when we do you can be sure that our employees and those contracting to us will not win the tournament we will leave that to the community and our guys can compete for their own shop prizes internally and still all will have fun. A tournament is about you and your chance to shine and have a good time not ours we get that opportunity every week at the shop.

Having said that, Pensacola is one of the little known secrets of diving and spearfishing and we have some great spearfishing divers here and 4 awesome shops that promote the sport. We are just one of a few and want to introduce as many to the same addiction we have and do it safely and at your pace. We offer rental spearguns to help the newbie before asking you to invest in a speargun so you can try it out and see how you like it before spending your hard earned money.

We are not rich or wealthy at Bay Breeze, we are simply ordinary guys and gals that love to dive and love to see others share the experience of diving and just want to pay the bills and make a living so we can do what we love in the process.We only charge what we must to pay the bills, make a living and of course keep our fine Captains in business as well providing quality, safe and fun trips to the many dive spots in the area.

The Divin U Crazy is a 26 ft Dusky powered by new twin Suzuki 200hp Four Stroke outboard engines.  This boat is set up for diving and spearfishing.  There is plenty of deck space, tank racks, cuddy cabin and storage.  She is equipped with radar, GPS, bottom finder, VHF radio and stereo for some tunes in between dives.  Although this boat is set up to take a maxmium of 6 divers, we will go out with a minimum of 2 and take a maximum of 4.  This may seem crazy to some, but this allows us to better serve our customers and makes for a more enjoyable experience for all!
