About High Ty’d Charters

Captain Dan
Dan Bloom, of High Ty’d Charters, decided to give up the cold water diving of Michigan and venture down to Pensacola. From his Open Water Training dives (1987) in Gull Lake, Michigan, Dan has enjoyed the underwater world in many places. Heather Bloom (wife) and Dan have been involved in the dive business since 1995 owning West Michigan Dive Center for 12 years and changing the business into Dive and Travel Adventures. They enjoyed diving the Great Lakes: Lake Michigan, Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Ontario. Even though the diving is cold, the shipwrecks are amazing. A few favorite locations are Whitefish Point (Lake Superior), Mackinaw Bridge, Tobermory (Lake Huron, Canada). Cap’t Dan operated a Stamas 6-pack charter boat in Lake Michigan, Divers Dream.  After 5 years of offering scuba charters in Pensacola, Cap’t Dan decided it is time to make the switch to Scenic Charters!  Join him for fun out on the water in Pensacola!

When Captain Dan is not offering charters in the Pensacola area, he may be joining Heather on one of the many dive trips they offer through Dive and Travel Adventures. Through the years they have traveled to many wonderful locations: Cozumel, Bonaire, Cayman Islands, and many more Caribbean Islands. Heather and Dan enjoy diving and traveling in the Pacific also: Maldives, Fiji, Indonesia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Great Barrier Reef, Truk, Palau, and Yap. Check out the website at diveandtraveladventures.com and join them on their travels, land based trips and liveaboards.  Heather offers Individual Travel and the past few years has offered Viking River Cruises and Viking Ocean Cruises!

Charter Boat
High Ty'd ChartersHigh Ty’d is a 26 ft Grady White Sailfish, 1995. Twin Suzuki DF250 Outboards provide the power to efficiently transport up to 6 guests and crew. A canopy covers the stern of the boat to provide shade from the sun (but sunscreen is recommended). There is plenty of room for the passengers and their belongings. We use redundant electronic systems (GPS) to provide navigation information. VHF radio, first aid kit, life vests and required Coast Guard equipment are on board.  If conditions and time permit, Cap’t Dan can find a nice spot for a dip in the refreshing salt water (a freshwater shower is on board to rinse off).  Plenty of drinking water is provided and there is room to bring your own snacks and drinks.  Our cabin is dry to relax in or change clothes with a Head (toilet).  The cabin is great to store belongings.  Join us to see Pensacola from the water!
