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.

This in an average dive site. People there are more to sell you a trip and get you in some class than showing you the best dive sites in the area. You could find other dive shop that really wants to show and bring you to the best dive site but not these guys. The experience I had with them... More

About 5 years ago I took my Open Water course with another dive shop in the area. After a two year diving hiatus, I decided to take it again as a refresher. Dixie Divers and my instructor, Keith, were just head and shoulders above the course I'd previously taken. Keith was patient & very thorough. Although I had already done... More

Great trip on Sat 1/10. We spoke to Andre to plan our trip, he was so helpful and kind!! Our captians were awesome, they even let our daughter drive the boat out to the open ocean, she loved that!! Going to two dive sites made the trip more exciting, we saw a sunken ship, lots of fish and even a... More

Just finished up my Advanced OW & Enriched Air course with Charles, who is a fantastic instructor that I can highly recommend. Spent two days diving on the Lady Go Diver, 3 dives on Saturday, 2 on Sunday. Comfortable dive trips that also include 20 minutes or so cruising the Intracoastal Waterway. If you're not from South Florida, checking out... More

I was on a GoPro hunt and stopped by this shop. Holly Cow! They had one of the most well stocked dive shops I have stepped in. The staff was extremely helpful in helping me pick the right GP gear and gave me some fantastic tips. Even though i didn't dive with them, I found them to be extremely knowledgable,... More

For the AOW course we made 5 dives on 2 boat trips which included diving a wreck, diving to 100 ft, learning how to better navigate underwater & search and recover objects... More

We stopped by Dixie Divers to pick up a couple of wetsuits and snorkel equipment. Being from the land-locked midwest, we didn't really know what we were looking for, but they hooked us up for a decent price. Unfortunately, that very day, after about thirty minutes in the ocean, my wetsuits ripped at two different seams. But I called, and... More
