Since I started Orbit Marine the summer of 1973, I’ve prided myself in being able to offer our local divers a chance to dive locally on one of our Orbit Diver vessels. Sure it’s great to be able to travel to far off lands, home of wonderful warm, clear water, but many people can’t either afford to travel to great dive destinations or don’t have the time. Besides, why not enhance your skills, take an Advanced, Rescue or Divemaster program right in your own back yard?
Long Island Sound offers the best of both worlds. Although visibility is considered “poor” compared to other parts of the world, our backyard offers an abundant array of marine life ranging from many species of sponges, corals, crustaceans, fish and wrecks!
Our Orbit Diver II and Orbit Diver IV vessels are docked at the famous Capt. Cove Marina, Black Rock, Bridgeport. We offer local diving from mid May through Mid October, every weekend and Wednesday mornings. Most dive sites are just 10-30 minutes from the mouth of the harbor, so no long boat rides to our destination. We cater to every experience level from Basic Open Water Student to highly experienced wreck diver. We have something for every level of experience.
Next season, give us a try. Dive local and continue to enjoy your passion, and not just while on vacation!
