Pompano Dive Center is my choice when it comes to dive trips, questions, education as the staff is the best of the best, facilities and boats are always in top condition. I always do and will continue to recommend Pompano Dive Center to anyone who needs a dive shop for anything.

These folks were great. Very professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. The equipment was well maintained, and it was nice having a dive computer, not just analog gauges, on rented equipment. Would definitely use them again.

As just about everybody else has said... this place is awesome! They are leaps and bounds above other dive shops that I have been in. The entire experience is professional, fun, timely, etc... Everything from when you get to the dive shop to returning from your dive is well-executed. Before every dive they make sure to explain the layout of... More

This is my go-to dive shop when I need advice, equipment, or a trip to the ocean. The store carries top-of-the-line gear, the boats are excellent, and they are near a ton of excellent dive spots. However, the most important reason I keep choosing PDC is the staff. Everyone is extremely knowledgable, friendly, and helpful.

There are businesses, so clearly outstanding, so set apart from the rest that rating them excellent seems like a disservice. Pompano Dive Center is more than simply an excellent dive business - it's the perfect combination of a shop loaded with the latest and greatest gear, knowledgeable sales staff and management, instructors who exhibit incredible patience and truly love their...

I've been shopping with Pompano Dive Center for years. Their customer service is top notch. Customer service doesn't end in their shop, their boat charters are an incredible adventure with the same customer service I've come to expect when entering their shop. Their staff are very knowledgeable and can help with any of your needs from recreational diving to technical... More

First, as a compliment, I will state that not all Scuba centers run both the dive shop and boat charter. I've found that these are often separate companies. PDC does both which makes it super convenient to check in at the shop and board the dive boat. Well staffed so perfect for beginners and experienced divers. Excellent management, Dive Masters,...

Capt Brett was great and DH/DMs Cassie and Missy were really outstanding as well. Our first two dives were a lot of fun on wrecks in the 70' range. The afternoon dives were less so, with a class, and I ended up skipping the last one. Make sure they are going places appropriate for your skill & thrill level and... More

My girlfriend and I live in TN. I am a certified diver but she was not, that is, until we got hooked up with Pompano Dive Center. She did her PADI instruction on line and we did her open water when we got to Pompano. The entire staff from the instructor (Robert), the pros in the shop, and the charter... More

This dive shop/charter provides a wonderful experience, at a competitive price. It feels like going out with friends for a couple dives. They provide great briefings on the dive sites, and were very knowledgeable about which sites to use given weather conditions to give us the best dives possible. Efficient and courteous. I wouldn't go to anyone else in Pompano.... More
