I did my check out dives through South Point Divers. Everyone in the shop and on the boat were extremely friendly and there was even a comedian on board. Anton was my instructor both days for my actual dives and he was amazing. He made me feel very comfortable both before, during and after the dives. Great instruction and a... More

We booked for 3 divers & 1 Snorkle. We were told to be at the shop for 12.30 in fact we didn't need to be there until 1pm. We were fitted out for hire gear all good condition. Allocated to Adam on the boat, once on board we ask about a dive computer for our friend. We don't supply dive... More

Did some checking around before booking our dive with them and we were not disappointed. Everyone, from the shop staff to the boat crew were great. They took good care of us from start to finish. We did the Vandenberg Wreck dive. Fantastic!

Anton was an outstanding instructor!! He is very patient and helpful when working with us in our skills development. He was always open to our questions in the pool and out on the boat. The crew on the Phoenix is also excellent. Everyone worked was one big team and were great offering assistance to those who wanted/needed the help. Thank... More

We were supposed to go diving with friends, but they went in the morning and got so seasick that they were unable to dive the afternoon. We did the discover scuba/ refresher course in the morning, and our instructor Champ was very knowledgable and pleasant. Due to weather, we went diving in the gulf, which was very shallow and we...

For my husband and I, this turned out to be a $375 two-tank dive on the Vandenberg. They insist you rent their entirely unnecessary dive computers, as well as pay $30 each for a "guide" who didn't show us a single thing, and just rushed us along. Also, bottom time was set at 17mins. which is too conservative, even for... More

Did an afternoon two-tank dive on the Phoenix with Mike and his crew. I did not have a dive buddy so I linked up with a group of three. They had hired a guide named Mary Kay that was one of the most professional and helpful I've met in 15 years of diving. Her familiarity with the reef and the... More

My wife and booked a week in the Keys with Key West on our anniversary. We were running late when we arrived, but the great staff got us lined out and on our way. BTW, we only had to carry our gear across the parking lot...pretty cool. I give credit to the Captain and crew; They have to deal with... More

Was a little hesitant about booking with Southpoint because of the bigger boat and number of divers but over all was a great experience. We are semi-experienced divers so we went with a guide (Antoine) and were glad we did. There was a lot of activity getting everyone in and out of the water and was a bit over whelming... More

Our son got his Open Water certification with Southpoint. He's 16 and did his PADI online theory portion ahead of time (that took around 16 hours). We booked the 2 pool sessions and 4 ocean dives ahead of time with Jade who checked us in a day ahead. Very professional and super friendly! Champ and Anton were the dive masters... More
