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

Gold Coast was amazing to my boyfriend and I. They helped us schedule our dives, rented us equipment for a shore dive at a very competitive rate, and were awesome with helping me choose a camera to purchase. The young man with the blonde hair was who helped us each time. Go see them and use them if you are... More

Gold Coast Scuba is very active in helping people enjoy the local shore diving, and they also plan a lot of boat trips with South Florida Diving Headquarters, where the awesome Pam works, who gave me a great Snorkle tour of Datura. Through Gold Coast Scuba's meetup group I was able to connect with buddies for shore diving and we... More

I moved to Fort Lauderdale January 1st of this year. I quickly discovered the Gold Coast Scuba Meetup group because I belonged to a diving Meetup group in New Mexico and I moved here to dive. I am happy to say there is an abundance of diving opportunities in the group and everyone is super friendly. There are all levels... More

We were in the office 3 times in the week of May 11th through May 16th. The guy in the office is a JERK! One of the " dive masters" is a stuck up snob. The dive master who went on the dive with us did not even go with us. What would he have done if there was a... More

My son and I went in to rent equipment. We ended up talking to Steve for awhile. He was very pleasant to talk to and very knowledgable about the area dive sites. He even went to the extent of showing us videos and maps of great dives. I would rent from Steve again when in the area.

Gold Coast Scuba is a wonderful local dive shop very convenient to the beach diving capital of the world, Lauderdale By The Sea. They really cater to beach divers, and they have a group of friends and dive buddies who dive nearly every day of the year. They offer a full range of equipment sales and rental, quick airfills, and... More

The shop is close to some of the best and easiest shore diving in S FL, and the staff will tell you everything you need to know, whether you bring your own gear or rent from them. They organize a popular meet-up group, that has dives most every day, so whether you have a buddy or not, you are good... More

I found GCS shortly after becoming certified. The best part about this shop is the dive club. It opens up limitless opportunities to get in the water and you can always find a dive buddy through the club. Steve and Brian are very patient and will answer all of your questions. They stock quality gear at good prices. This shop... More
