Owner description: At Dixie Divers our facility includes our own pool on premise and our own boat, Lady Go Diver, a 48' Marine Management boat powered by twin 871 Detroit diesel engines. The Lady was designed as a dive boat not converted into one. She is equipped with all safety gear, fire extinguishers, life jackets, O2 and first aid kit. On board you will find a full size head (bath room), fresh water shower, and a large easy to board dive platform with two ladders. Sodas, water and snacks are provided on all trips. The bow is easy to access and offers a nice spot to enjoy the rides to and from the dive sites. If you choose to, you may come up on the fly bridge and chat with the captain and the locals. She is not a speedboat and we do not race anywhere so you get to enjoy the scenery both in the Intracoastal Waterway and along the beaches. These guys know all the good places to look for interesting things on the reefs and wrecks. Come out and enjoy the biggest dive boat in the Deerfield / Pompano area.

I was able to dive with Pavan and the "Thursday morning crew" yesterday and had a great time diving with them. They knew exactly where the best places to dive were and we saw plenty of lobsters, lionfish, and hogfish.... A friendly shark came and swam along with us too. The captain and crew were top notch. I couldn't ask... More

However, 2 weeks later on October 18, 2014, I was PADI Open Water Certified and today November 10, 2014, I now have my Advanced Open Water Certification from Dixie Divers. I would love to... More

I was visiting Deerfield and stopped in to buy two snorkel sets. I found there to be a great selection and friendly staff at Dixie divers.

I have filled tanks here several times & every time, they are not fully filled. One time, I asked for a nitrox mix & they filled the tanks with air. THey obviously don't care! When I objected to this, I was abused by the manager with rude and snarky comments. My gear was not serviced well either, and I had... More

First of all, we have been filling tanks for more then 20 years, for that reason I am pretty sure if you were short you should let us know and we could fix it. What you say here about my employees is not true since we have ton of satisfied costumers. About our equipment, you sign the agreement and it... More

I went to the Florida on Business and it was my first time in the USA. While there someone suggested I make a turn at Dixie Divers as it's a memorable experience that I shouldn't pass up. Needless to say it's a trip to remember and the staff are so friendly. Well priced and a good 4-5 hours on the... More

First of all we are not overpriced since we match any price you can bring in print to us. About our sales person, sometimes they happened to be a trainee and need help, you know we are part of the working force in this economy and we like to give opportunities to new people. I am pretty sure you can... More

I made my very first trip to Florida in the beginning of October to go scuba diving. My brother sat me up with one of the most amazing and patient instructors at Dixie Divers. Martha Lenoir Beachem. I would recommend her to anyone. She takes time with you and makes you feel comfortable. The morning of my dive she came... More

I went out snorkeling with Dixie Divers yesterday with a big group of friends. Lady Go Diver was a very well equiped boat with a great crew. George was very helpful and personable. After the second stop he cut up and served some delicious, fresh pineapple. We all had a fantastic time and will definitely go again! Lara Diemont
