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.

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

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

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!

Diving itself was in Key Largo. We took the van ride from the dive shop. Took 1,5 hours to get in Key Largo. They stop in the middle to grab a snack etc. Dive itself was with Ocean Divers from Key Largo. The two dives at the Malasses reef were very good. We saw a Nurse shark, Turtle and a... More

I took my friend scuba diving for the first time, so he did a DSD and I was allowed to accompany him. First of all the shop is really nice, sells a bunch of beach wear, surf stuff, sunscreen, and dive equipment. The staff was nice. We went to the pool at 0800 and the instructor did the pool session... More

Booked the all trip to Key Largo from So Beach with these guys. The staff was fairly friendly and helpful. I had to rent all my equipment from them; and their gear was good quality - though the fins did not fit and I dont have slip-ons fins to remember the difference in size since I have booties. They drove... More
