My wife and I certified way back in 1997, but hadn't dove for many years. We called and booked a 1/2 day refresher and 3 days of dives with them. Alex was our refresher instructor and our dive master for all 3 days. You couldn't ask for a better dive master, he not only ensured we were safe but showed... More

What else are you looking for? My son and I spent three 2-tank diving days with them last week - including the not-to-be-missed Vandenberg. Before we booked I read many reviews and, once again, I wonder what some folks are thinking when they write these scathing reviews. Southpoint put safety first and did everything they could to ensure we had... More

These guys were AWESOME. Finished my PADI Open Water Certification and did an awesome wreck dive on the Vandenberg. Great time! Can't wait to come back and dive again with this crew. My instructor Alex was awesome, kept everything FUN and more importantly SAFE. Highly recommended for PADI certification and reef diving. Wreck diving on the Vandenberg was a once... More

Lets face it. The conditions are going to be what mother nature puts out there. And any dive shop can take you out to the reef. But Southpoint Divers really takes care of their customers. I went on two separate dives the week of March 1, 2014 and despite vastly different crowds each time, the crew was patient, enthusiastic, professional,... More

We live in the UK and have a villa in Kissimmee that we frequently stay at. We visited Key West in February 2013. We wanted to dive the Vandy, my sons and I (being recently qualified AOWDs), but the dive shop we were recommended to didn't go there on the day we wanted so we ended up trying Southpoint. We...

On my 1st ever trip to Key West, I dove the USS Vandenberg with SouthPoint Divers. Every one from the Store Office to the Boat Crew were nothing but Curtious and Professional! I rented Full Gear and found the Equipment to be of High Quality! My Tour Guide/DiveMaster, Matt, was extremely Professional and Helpful! It was clear that he loves... More

Had the opportunity to dive with Southpoint during a cruise ship layover. They made putting in back-to-back dives on the USNS Vandenberg a breeze. The shop is efficient in registering and administering dives, rentals are quickly dealt with and the boat is very well set up. An experienced team gives good briefs, has great procedures for dealing with a wreck... More

I have been a diver for 40 years, I dive most weekends here in Florida, I am a Master Diver and have long lost the major "wow" factor on most dives. Having said that, I just rediscovered the major "wow" of diving. I spent a week in Key West planning time for myself for diving, writing, and funning. The first... More

We had a morning two tank on the Vandenberg. The dive team was extremely professional and fun. Their rental gear was well maintained (BC, regs, fins), and the boat was fast and nicely laid out. I have been diving with many operations and this one is really top notch.

The captain and our dive guide, Alex were great, extremely helpful. It was my first dive without a dive master in water but they explained everything and made sure I was comfortable! My only complaint is that the wetsuits were old and in poor condition. But otherwise great experience!
