Great crew and experience. Went out on two different days and loved each dive with them. They know how to run a tight ship and keep things moving even when people might be running behind. Overall made me feel very comfortable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend them and Chris was a great guy to have on... More

We drive to the East coast to do our Open Water certification dives with Pompano. They are a great crew and provided lots of good diving. These were my first dives so I cannot company them to everyone one else. But if there are better dive companies out their I am going to have a world of fun.

I went over to the east coast this weekend to get scuba certified. We chartered the SeaDog and SeaSiren at Pompano Dive Center. They were awesome! All of their staff were knowledgeable and super friendly. They made the experience so very cool and special. A huge thanks and shout out to Chris, Mitch, Bradley and Mackenzie for a great experience... More

I took 7 kids ranging in age from 11 to 15 for their open water check out dives. The dive masters and crew on the boat were exceptional. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

What an incredible experience! The folks at Pompano Dive Center, Odyssey Charters and Guy Harvey Research Institute were absolutely incredible! They thought of everything and were so knowledgeable. Price was worth every penny and I got memories that will last a lifetime. Crew had a huge cooler full of drinks and snacks and made sure we didn't want for anything.... More

I dove two days in a row (wreck/reef) on each of their two boats. The boats are comfortable and well maintained (Newton 36 and 42). The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Each day on the boat, we had divers ranging from Open Water students (including teenagers) to tech divers. The crew made it work for everyone. I would recommend... More

The dive boat SEA SIREN was fabulous. The destination for the dive was the ANCIENT MARINER. As beginner divers, we found the whole experience absolutely fascinating. The boat arrived quickly, set up to get us in the water was quick, our dives were great, the seas were 3-5 feet (choppy), but underwater the scene was much better. The boat was... More

Can you believe it's been 16 years since I got Open Water Certified? Geez!! Well, clearly it was time to finally get Advanced Open Water Certified and I contacted Pompano Dive Center after getting a recommendation from a coworker. After some emails back and forth I was able to set up the perfect schedule for me (and another corworker) and... More

Diving since 1973 still like to find new spots, and dive shop with knowledge and safe crew knowing how to work with the customers. My son diving now for 2 years, still rents equip so we want good gear, good condition, and a staff who asks about experience/backround, and yet watches the divers and knows how and WANTS to guide...
