Welcome to Smoky Mountain Divers!

The Thrill Of Diving!




Im Fal__! Im Fal__! Im Flying!!!



It's difficult to explain the Thrill of Scuba Diving or the comfortable, peaceful feeling a diver experiences when in a weightless state underwater. As you glide slowly over the tropical reef watching the ballet of thousands of beautifully colored marine creatures, you're immersed in a spirit of inner space that is nearly overwhelming and beckons you to stay.


The water is warm and clear as you search for that "perfect shot" with your underwater camera. Then you realize you've moved to the edge of the the wall, where the bottom drops thousands of feet into wonderful blue infinity. Your first emotion screams, "I'm Fal__... I'm Fal__... I'm   Flying" through this magnificent liquid universe!


Then sometimes you get so comfortable that, just for a couple of seconds, you no longer feel that you're underwater at all. It's then when you realize, it seems you could reach out and touch the face of God! 


Barry Burton, 1980

Dive San Salvador, Bahamas



April, 2018



In April, 2018 SMD's taking a group to Riding Rock Inn on San


Salvador, Bahamas.  Barry's been there for 7, week-long diving


trips over past years.  The visibility has always been about 150',


water temp 83, the Food and Staff @ R.R.I. are WONDERFUL!



If You've been with us on one of our 41 Bonaire trips over the


years, You'll find it hard to believe, but the Reef @ "San Sal" is


even better than in Bonaire.  I understand that R.R.I. has Nitrox


available!  Good Stuff.  Watch for more Information very soon!



I'll have Prices & Start the Deposits, Next Week.


  What a Christmas Present for You


& "Your Honey"!
