Best dive shop ever! I took the 3-day open water course and everything was perfect. The four dives in Key Largo and Miami were amazing (especially key largo, best place ever been to), and saw everything including sharks and see turtles! The course was very well paced and really let you learn with fun, especially with an excellent instructor who... More

The staff are very helpful and take good care of you, thoroughly and patiently walk you through any questions you have, and give you tips... More

I booked a Monday 2 tank trip to key largo with this outfit that seems to go by two different names: South Beach Divers AND South Beach Dive and Surf. I got in at the last minute which I like--sometimes it's good to see how you're feeling the morning of a dive rather than have to go because you already... More

My first dive in salt water. I have 36 dives logged, not a ton, but I know what I'm doing. First dive stop was a wreck 60' to the deck, my weight belt I changed out twice because It was worn out and wouldn't latch. So the 2nd one wouldn't stay latched when we got in the water. The older... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I only became aware we have a shortage of weight belts that morning as we had a large group of students in the pool using belts at the same time that we had a dive trip. We have since purchased and received 40 new belts/buckles so this will not... More

You will not find a better place with the most experienced and cordial staff. They make you feel at home. Do not take your chances somewhere else, this is your only stop if you want to scuba dive or surf. Great teachers also.

These guys have a full selection of equipment for sale and rent, and they also do expeditions around the Miami and Keys area. The prices seemed competitive with what else is going on out there, so I don't have any real complaints. The only thing that seemed a bit odd was the total humorless and nigh-robotic man working the front... More

I'm not the most experienced diver to admit but the two dives I done with South beach divers were only about 30 minutes long, after both dives I still had over 50% air in my cylinders. I understand I had to ascend as others in the group were low on air but in the past when this happens the guide... More

Thank you for your review. I regret you were unable to dive the site that we have originally planned for. From time to time we have to change the location of the planned dive site if the conditions are not favorable there, such as currents.
