Here's where I dive and buy my stuff. If you visit any of these shops, say hi to everyone for me!

California - Monterey

Diver Dan's - My home dive shop, in Santa Clara, CA. A great place to buy gear and take classes (from me, even!)

Monterey Bay Mermaid - My friend Alison does underwater photo and video shoots. In the ocean, or in the pool if you want to be a mermaid.

California - South

Psalty Adventures - They've got a smaller, fast boat ideal for day trips to Santa Catalina Island.


Kona (big island)

Big Island Divers - Great diving up and down the Kona side of the island, including manta ray dives.

Jack's Diving Locker - Jack's was the first dive shop to do black water ("Pelagic magic") dives in Kona.

Aquatic Life Divers - One of the most conservation-focused dive shops I know. And they just got two new custom-built dive boats.


Lahaina Divers - My favorite dive shop in Lahaina, on the west side of Maui. Their boats go to Maui, Molokini, Lanai, and Molokai (hammerheads!)


Fathom Five - Smaller boats mean more personal service.


Reef Pirates - They own a 6-diver boat in Hawaii Kai on Oahu. Much more personal and easy-going than many of the bigger (and more crowded) boats on the island.



Pura Vida Divers - Close to Blue Heron Bridge for epic muck diving, and good dive boats.


CoCo View Resort - My favorite resort on Roatan. I've done over 100 dives there.



Sam's Tours - Day boats out to the walls, and a great house reef for night dives.


Crystal Blue Resort - Spectacular muck diving and reefs. Small boats; very photographer-friendly.
