In October, I am going to Panama City, Panama for work. I'd like to do some diving while I'm there! Looking for recommendations of dive sites & operators. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hey, I went diving there in March 2015. The twin tug wrecks was pretty cool. The hovercraft was kinda lack luster and I can't remember the 3rd wreck I went to.

The one thing I vividly remember is it was surprisingly cold that time of year in a wet wetsuit on the boat. The boat I was on had a semi-enclosed area with a heater inside. This made it not bad at all, but I think without the heater it would have been cold enough to ruin the trip for me.

According to my log book I went with Panama city diving.
