Southern Maryland Divers

Southern Maryland Divers is a local retail dive shop and PADI dive center in Southern Maryland that offers training, tank fills (both recreational and technical), and both local and international dive trips. The shop owner is extremely knowledgeable and the training staff is fantastic (if you are interested in taking a PADI course, ask for Barrett, he is an absolutely AWESOME instructor!). The shop also has an on site pool that is used for confined water training during evening hours. The shop offers local diving trips to Ocean City Maryland and typically runs two trips per year to "blue water" locations. The two trips for 2016 are to Bonaire and Roatan! The shop has a great variety of gear and is an authorized retailer for Aqua Lung, Dive Rite, Ikelite, and Shearwater Research just to name a few. If you are in need of gear, fills, or training, look no further than Southern Maryland Divers!

Buddy Dive Resort

What an amazing experience! We paid for the “dive and drive” package and had unlimited Nitrox fills. During check in, we received our room keys and our truck. The truck was clean and ran well. It also had COLD air conditioning. After checking in at the front desk, we headed to our rooms where our luggage was waiting. The apartment was VERY nice. We were in a ground floor apartment with a walkout porch. The ladies who cleaned our room also did an outstanding job! I would definitely recommend paying to have the morning breakfast buffet (which included made to order omelettes). It was a very good value and the food was fantastic! In addition to the crystal blue Caribbean Ocean, Buddy Dive also has two pools. One of the pool is also a swim up bar!
