Do Donuts Dive?

Several of you have asked about Florida Underwater Sports Donut Dives. What are they? When do they occur? Why do you do them? Can I get sprinkles on my donut?

What is a Donut Dive?

When we opened the store, one of our first customers had a local Dunkin Donut shop. He offered to supply coffee and donuts as part of a fun beach dive and the rest is history. Donut Dives are

an opportunity to meet the local diving community and experience different beaches. Divers are generous with information about their favorite sport. There are staff members onsite to assist divers, monitor activity and encourage safe diving.

When and Where are the Donut Dives?

Donut Dives run from 8:45 AM – 11:00 AM and occur on the third Saturday of every month, weather permitting. Locations vary along the coast, from Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island,

to Service Club Beach in Venice. Check our FB page under EVENTS for location and any specifics.

Frequently Donut Dives are themed, Dive for Debris, PADI Women’s Dive Day, Underwater Pumpkin Carving, Holiday Party, etc. We also raise money for the Florida Aquarium and

your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous divemaster (Dale).

The Specifics:

Bring your gear. If you need to rent, please call: 941-870-4461 or

email: in advance so we can make sure you

are covered.

We bring a limited number of dive flags for use. Need help with gear, questions? ASK.

When you arrive, please present your certification card from a recognized agency

(e.g., PADI, NAUI, SSI, etc.). There will be a release form for you to sign as a participant.


Diving begins at 9:00 AM with a check at the white board to note your 'in-water' time.

Diving ends at 11:00 AM with your 'out of water' check in on the whiteboard.

If you do not check out-of-water , emergency personnel will be notified for search and

recuse purposes.
