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

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
