We had been diving with south beach divers last June and we repeat this August. The experience was really nice but my wife and myself were impressed with one of the instructor. Daniel is an incredible instructor we were impressed with his knowledge and capability to teach. We would love to dive with him again.

It is a good thing that I didn't write this review after days 1 and 2 of diving - it would have been 1-2 stars at best. My biggest problem with South Beach Divers was systems or lack thereof. I have only been diving for four years, but I was amazed that I could show up at the dive shop... More

Thank you for taking the time to review South Beach Divers. You some valid points and I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations. We recently changed our check in time from 60 minutes to 90 minutes prior to departure only on our Miami Dive trips as we felt that customers were being rushed to fill out paperwork,... More

The dive shop is very easy to get to and nicely outfitted. We drove to Key Largo ourselves from Miami Beach and it was an easy drive. The boat there had a really nice staff. There was one nice helpful girl at the front desk getting people checked in and one guy who never met our eyes and never smiled... More

These guys were great! We didn't dive with them but they solved my problem in no time at all. I needed to find a solution for getting sand on my feet due to a pain condition I had and in about 15-20 minutes I left with perfect fitting dive booties and never had any sand on my feet while at...

I love to snorkel and have always wanted to discover scuba but it was never very practical with young kids. My 12 yr old son and I took a boys trip to Miami and went on South Beach Divers Discover Scuba together. After our briefing and pool time, we felt safe and confident when we hit the open water. Key... More

What a great and memorable experience. Our first time scuba diving so wanted it to be professional , low student/instructor ratio and be really safe. That all was achieved! Alvaro, our instructor, is by far the best. Very low key but watching you at every step. We were nervous because a lot of info in a short period of time.... More

We took our first trip to Key Biscayne in June and had Joe from the dive shop as our guide. He was excellent! Very informative, helpful and we felt very safe. Per Joe's recommendation, we booked a dive in Key Largo. He was schedule to be out of town the day we booked but assured us any person from their... More

Thank you for your review. I can empathize with your feelings about wanting to allow the other divers to dive with your guide. This seems totally logical to me but the sad truth is that it's all about liability. All our guides are licensed and insured PADI Dive Masters or Instructors and as such they have to follow the standards... More

We had a dive trip today with instructor Bruce at two sites -Neptune and Belzona Barge. Had a very good experience. I dived with my two teenage kids and he took a great care of all us, providing positive, fun, safe and educational atmosphere! Very friendly staff at dive shop too, ready to help out the best they can. Highly... More

I went with a large group for a snorkel/diving trip to Key Largo. The drivers, instructors, and all the crew on the boat were very friendly and helpful through the whole trip. They told us a lot about the area we were in and what we were likely to see there.

I did the Open Water Course here this past weekend and had an amazing experience! My instructor was incredibly patient and helpful throughout the whole process. It was a great opportunity to see a bunch of amazing things and meet some incredible people. Definitely looking forward to coming back for my Advanced Cert sometime in the near future!
