Big Blue Dive Boat
What's not to love when visiting Florida?
Panama City is known for it's rich diving history. Home to some amazing artificial reefs, wrecks, and offshore structures, Big Blue Dive Charters can take you to dive on artificial reefs such as Black Bart, Red Sea, Accokeek, and Chippewa to name a few. We also have many bridge spans and concrete structures that have been sank over the years. Marine life is abundant. Red Snapper, Amberjack, Trigger fish and Angle fish are all common on our dives. You name it, we have it, so you might get lucky and see a Sea Turtle, Manatee or Shark so bring your camera along and document your next adventure!
About Big Blue
Big Blue is a custom built 2019 Newton 36 Dive special, but she is drastically different than other dive boats. Big Blue has twin engines, so she makes the quickest trips to and from the dive site. Amenities like her on-board compressor and banks for scuba air fills, fully equipped electronics package to include auto pilot, down scan, side scan, and radar also stand out. In addition to all this, she not only has an enclosed cabin and galley for comfort, but also a separate head for privacy. Big Blue is outfitted with top of the line safety equipment, including a life raft, EPRIB, AED, Oxygen, and first aid kit.
Where To Go
Bristol Harbor, Slip 46 - 239 E Beach Dr, Panama City, FL, 32401
Big Blue is located at Bristol Harbor in Historic Downtown Panama City. Bristol Harbor is a quiet little marina tucked away in the scenic Massalina Bayou. Her slip is right by Massalina Bayou bridge. Part of the experience is passing under one of the few remaining draw bridges when departing and returning. Parking, changing and restroom facilities are available on site. There is available parking in two locations at the marina, along the street, or down the road in the old Hawks Nest parking lot.
We ask that you respect the marina tenants when visiting and using the facilities.
