The Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico is one of those places—astoundingly beautiful, biodiverse and teeming with life–that captures your heart and your imagination. Whale sharks meander through its waters, bottlenose dolphins jump through its currents and sea turtles nest on its beaches. As one of the most staggeringly productive places on this planet, the Gulf is home to fish, coral, whales, sea turtles, dolphins and thousands of bird species.

The Gulf is also a major engine for our local and national economy—species like oysters, shrimp and crabs drive a robust fishing industry while recreational fishing and tourism depend on the Gulf’s brilliant waters. For nearly 87 million people, the Gulf is home, it’s a way of life and it has its own local cultures and communities. So many people rely on its unique habitats.

These are just a few of the reasons why we love the Gulf of Mexico.

Let's Dive

Panama City has miles of uninterrupted white sand coastline strewn with shipwrecks and reefs both natural and man made. Diving here can be quite diverse with our seasons. Summer of course is everyone’s favorite with our warm blue water and gulf stream bringing in unusual tropical fish and frolicing marine mamals. Fall sees our flounder migration and pelagics making a big show. Winter breaks in our drysuit diving season with some amazing visibility and surprising visits from larger fish and mammals. Spring brings a chance to see the mackerel run and cobia at our coastal dive sites as well as some enormous tarpon. Whether you want to see beautiful aquatic life, swim with sharks, or visit relics hidden deep below we are here waiting to take you there.
