This place is TOP notch. They are experts and can teach the fundamentals of snorkeling very quickly. They put safety concerns before anything and it was very comforting to know how experienced they were. I had Mike as a guide and went snorkeling off of the beach with a group of 8 people. He always made sure we were together... More

the staff goes out of their way to help you out and give you information. We went diving with them several days and they give discount for the boats. One staff went with us on his days off to dive with us and to make sure we were treated well.

My 10 yr old son and I went scuba diving form the shore in front of our resort, the Windjammer. David our scuba instructor was so patient and knowledgeable. I felt very safe and was able to relax and enjoy the beauty of the ocean. I would do this again in a heart beat. Love love love Gold Coast Scuba.

Great service started when I called from Wisconsin and ask a few questions over the phone and did not end until I turned in my rental equipment. I love good customer service and they have it down pat. Every time I called they were always willing to help and take time to answer my questions. Never felt rushed or pressured... More

We took a long weekend away and come all the way from NJ. We decided to do some snorkeling because I have never been and my boyfriend hadn't done it in forever! Steve was quite accommodating when it came to the times we went out. He was all about us getting the best experience possible! When we arrived they showed... More

I can't say enough good things about Gold Coast Scuba. I contacted these guys a month or so ahead of my trip because I wanted to get my PADI open water cert. They walked me through all I needed to do. I purchased the eLearning and did all my academic work online ahead of time. (NOTE: DO NOT leave it... More

Being an Orlando Otter, knowing Lauderdale by the Sea, and the Gold Coast. I show my membership, to the guides; put on all the provided equipment. Instructors check me out in equipment. From Lauderdale by the sea, we explore local waterways. Cost $75.

My family used GCS for dive certification and the service was top-notch! The owners are personable, helpful and have great local knowledge of dive locations. The beach dive near the pier is only 1/2 mile from their location and it is an excellent dive site accessible from the beach. There is a very short swim from the beach to the... More

On first visit to LBTS and Gold Coast Scuba everything went well. I only rented tanks there and asked a few questions about the local diving. The person on duty was very accommodating and professional, unlike most dive shops with there elitism and arrogant attitude. I was given a short briefing and on a computer was shown wreck diving locations... More
