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

I got my open water certification here last week. It was a great experience. The staff was awesome! And I can't wait to go scuba diving with them again. Brett's really cool! Colin was very professional and he did his job very well. I had a blast

I have dove with this operation a year ago. The captains and dive masters are always great. Diving in FL in December is a bit iffy though and the seas were rough but we made a go of it although there were a few cancelled trips. The only thing that is different is that they used to have more help... More

We have gone out with PDC several times and they have always provided us with the best service. Of the options in the area, I believe they are outstanding. They have always helped with every detail including equipment to surface breaks. The captains and dive masters are well informed and are excited to share their knowledge. As a novice diver... More

I have gone on two tek dives with this operation in the last month....both were amazing. The boat was clean, well organized, and well run. Captain and crew were great. They are putting extra effort in the service they provide and it shows. A truly professional dive business.

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...
