We used Southpoint Divers for 2 days of diving back in November. We did a reef dive the first day, then a wreck dive on The Vanderberg the next day. Both dives we excellent. We found them friendly and professional on each trip and would definately use them again next time we visit Key West.

Been out with these guys twice to dive the Vandenberg which is a neat dive, will use them again next time. Really enjoyed our dive master Adam this last trip. A few things to note- Get a guide even if you are an advanced diver. There's a lot to see, and a divemaster will help you make the most of... More

It was my first time scuba diving and I was very scared. My diving instructor (hunter) was amazing. Made me feel so safe and... More

I was recently in Key West and booked with Southpoint for a wreck dive on the Vandenberg. I was certified in 1977 and have done a fair amount of recreational diving in the US, Asia, Europe, Mexico and the Caribbean over the years. I found Southpoint to be one of the most efficient, professional and organized dive operation I have... More

We did our dive certification with Drew as our instructor and then went on to add two wreck dives at the Vandenberg site with Drew. Everyone we encountered at Southpoint Divers were extremely nice and professional. With us being new to diving, they ensured our safety first and foremost but also made sure we were comfortable and had fun. Everyone... More

Only my second round time out as a diver (and 9 months since my first Open water certification!) this team made me feel at ease and helped me get my feet wet again. Great diving and great support on the boat and off. Diving the Vandenberg was the absolute highlight of my trip and I will remember the experience forever!... More

Was in a Key West and was referred to Southpoint Divers by another dive shop. Professional organisation that offered great service. Did 4 dives with them including 2 dives on the USNS Vandenberg. I can Tej you this five is well worth the effort and I will use Southpoint next time I am in town.
