Had a great time doing the work for a good cause. Good people at Pompano Dive Center, Guy Harvey Research Institute and NSU Oceanographic Center. Great boat, snacks, and even did some snorkeling between the shark tagging. A great time learning and giving back to a good cause. 6 sharks in total tagged. 3 Nurse, 2 Sandbar, and the biggest...

Where to start. A great group of people making sure things go right. The boat is large and not packed with people. There is good room for your gear. The Captain and crew are professional and friendly and help any way they can. They even unload your gear for you (but not a re-breather, costs factor). This was my 4th... More

My wife and I went out on a dive with the Dive Center last week (just getting around to this now) and we were very impressed with all the staff with the dive operation. They were extremely helpful, unloading out gear from the car as soon as we stopped in front of the centre and loading it on the boat.... More

I used to live in Ft. Lauderdale and did a vast majority of my diving with this shop. Very professional, but alwasy personable. The shop is very squared away, the boat is always in great shape, and the crew is always friendly and helpful. On 02-28-15, my Son and I drove up from Key West and I connected with this... More

Pompano Beach Dive Center is a joy to dive with. Their staff is safe and competent, as well as extremely friendly, and helpful. Everyone seems happy to work there, as they are all smiling and happy, and just being around the staff makes you feel happy too! Their boats are very new, well equipped, and are very safe on the...

Last September was our first experience with PDC. We had such a great time were treated so well, we made sure to book 2 days with them on our Feb trip. We got a chance to dive off of both the Sea Dog and Sea Siren ships. Both are good, but I do like the larger boat better. We ran... More

We had a great time with the crew at Pompano Dive center! They were all so friendly and helpful. Misty and Tony were very informative about the dive sites. This is the number one dive company in Pompano and they know how to take care of their divers!

The crew was excellent for our dive. They were very professional making even the newest of divers comfortable. Safety is a priority. Being the first to make a reservation for the date we went we were able to choose the dive site. Would definitely choose this dive crew again!

I wrote a review on PDC in 2012, which I stated they were a horrible place to dive with. I had a chance to go out with them again this past weekend (1-17-15) and I must say that they were much, MUCH better. Odyssey Charters, the charter PDC uses was outstanding on our tec dives. No rush, friendly, and helpful.... More
