I booked a DSD class for a family member with South Beach Divers for Thursday, December 19th. Due to the ocean being a bit choppy, they were worried for her safety and asked her to reschedule. Subsequently, the next day (today) was a bit worse and the trip was cancelled for everyone. They then provided an immediate refund based on... More

I took the Go Pro course taught by Johnathan and Gary was the diver instructor. It was a lot of fun. I have been to many dive shops but never had a better time. The shop staff and guests are a real United Nations so everyone should be comfortable and probably find a native speaker of their language, Sasha was... More

I booked on-line and then turned up at the store. Staff are so helpful. While I was waiting for the transport one day, a couple from a cruise-liner walked in looking for some specific fishing gear that the store did not sell. But 2 staff searched the internet for stores, called a store to check if they had the gear... More

I recently got certified for Open Water with South Beach Divers. The entire staff was great, very knowledgeable and fun too. Our instructor was Jonathan who took great care of us and he ensured that we had an amazing, unforgettable and safe experience. We dove in Miami at Belcher Barge Wreck and at the John Pennekamp Reef in Key Largo... More

My fist dive experience in Key Largo was totally awesome! The instructors are really professionals and everything was made with careful for us. Really perfect. I recomend. :) Tip: At the store, don't ask help for the blond "cute" girl... she's unnecessarily rough. Talk directly with the guys that really understand about customer service.

My guy and I did our referral dive here after pool training in LA.The shop owner, Sasha, was friendly and answered questions ahead of time via email. Our teacher, Joe, was patient and relaxed. The front desk staffer, Meghan, gave me a little pep talk before my first day out. We dove off MIami and Key Largo during our training.... More

I'll start on a positive note. All the staff were great and really friendly. Now the not so great. I visited the store and asked a lot of questions before booking. This was advertised as a beginners trip. I have a lot of experience with snorkeling in the Mediterranean and Red Sea but it was the first time for my... More

Walked in with no reservation and within about 20 mins was in the van heading to key largo. Entire staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating. I would dive with this shop again without hesitation. Very nice shop with LOTS of nice stuff. You won't go wrong booking your Miami dives with this shop.
