Captain Joyce learned to scuba dive in 1987 while working at the Land O’ Lakes Scuba Center and worked her way up to becoming a Dive Master and an Instructor. Along the way, the years of crewing gave her the incentive to get her Captain’s License and owning her first boat. She later founded Narcosis Scuba Center on June 15th, 1996 and began her own Charter Boat Service. She researched for months beforehand to find a special boat and a store name that no one else had. Narcosis Scuba Center is also named after Joyce’s first boat, The Narcosis. Narcosis Scuba Center was a Historical House renovation itself, (the Original House was built in 1940), located at 528 East Tarpon Avenue. Our location offers convenient access to the Sponge Docks, the Downtown Historical District of Tarpon Springs and US Highway 19, North. Narcosis Scuba Center is a family owned, full service dive shop offering the very best customer service, classes, the latest gear and plenty of parking. Enjoy Scuba and Fishing Charters on our 32’ Custom built Sport Craft conveniently located at the Tarpon Springs City Marina. We offer a full line of diving and snorkeling equipment from leading manufacturers such as Aqua Lung, Sherwood, Houish, TUSA, XsScuba and Marine Sports. Our Mission is to continuously earn your business and give you the best Suba experience!
