<p>Miller's Dive Shop is owned by Captain Daryl Miller, a licensed Captain and PADI Dive Master, who will proudly show you the waters he grew up in. Daryl has been diving and fishing in South Eleuthera for over 20 years, making him one of the most qualified and knowledgeable guides in the area.</p>
<p>Located in Wemyss Bight, South Eleuthera, Miller's operates out of the <a href="http://www.capeeleuthera.com" target="_blank">Cape Eleuthera Marina</a>, offering easy access to over 20 dive sites on Eleuthera's southwest coast. Cape Eleuthera is a full-service marina serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and is a great place to either start or end our Eleuthera diving adventure. Lodging is available in their townhouses</p>

Types of Experiences and Trips Provided

<p><strong><br />Exclusive Scuba Trip</strong><br />A typical dive trip starts at 8:30 a.m. when you arrive at the Cape Eleuthera Marina, next door to the famous Island School. The dive boat will meet you with tanks, weights, and a cooler filled with ice and bottled water. Captain Miller will have your rental equipment attached to the tanks or will assist you in hooking up your own equipment. You will then be transported to the dive sites via dive boat from the marina at 9:00 a.m. for your first dive. In order to maximize bottom time, the first dive is the deeper of the two and can be a deep reef, wall, or the drug plane wreck.</p>
<p>Captain Miller or the mate will help each diver with their equipment and assist them in getting into the water. There is a drift line for divers to hold onto before the descent. Once on the bottom, Captain Miller will show you his underwater world.</p>
<p>Once you're back on the surface, you will be helped taking off your gear and getting back into the boat. While you are doing your surface interval, you can relax while the mate replaces old tanks with fresh tanks for your second dive. Then it is on to the the second dive, usually a reef less than 40 feet deep, again for maximum dive time. At the end of the dive, you will again be assisted back onto the boat for the short ride back to Cape Eleuthera, where you will be on the dock by noon and your gear can be rinsed for your next dive.</p>
