This is a great operation. Everyone is very polite and helpful. The staff loads and unloads your gear on and off the boat and switches your tank over for the second dive. We aren't used to this level of service in this country. If you want to be lead on a dive you can follow the Divemaster or not. The... More

I am an older open water diver with about 60 dives under my belt. I hadn't dived in a couple of years so Mitzi conducted a great 2-hour refresher for me this morning. She did a wonderful job reviewing equipment, safety and hand signals -- it got me feeling comfortable with the gear and being back into scuba. Then I... More

A great Dive Shop in Pompano Beach.... I went on the boat with my friend who did the dives... He had a great time diving with the dive masters and the other divers... On the second dive he saw so many beautiful ocean life and took some great videos for me to also enjoy... The crew was great.. Thank you... More

Dove this weekend with my dive club and I'd forgotten just how good this operation was. Two dive masters and an excellent captain made our dive on the Capt Dan and a reef dive a great day. Highly recommend.

The service is excellent, the staff friendly and very helpful. Great, well appointed and equipped dive shop. Boat is in terrific shape, fast and stable. Boat captain Will Mainord was excellent, thoroughly professional, as were his supporting dive masters, Chris and Missy. Gas mixology available in a variety of tank sizes. Doubles available as well. The wreck diving was excellent... More

I dove with this shop twice aboard the Sea Siren while on vacations and have nothing but good things to report. Great Boat. Divemasters were awesome and enthusiastic. Plenty of Crew aboard. Safe decisions observed at depth and aboard by crew. The dive shop is great. I will be back diving with them again. Great organization from what I can... More

Very professional and friendly staff. Took us to terrific wrecks and reef! They took care of all the details both big and small. The dive boats were clean and ran smoothly every time - and big enough to handle 3 to 4 ft swells without anyone feeling queasy. We highly recommend it!

This place is top notch! Have taken training and dives for three years. Also have purchased items from the shop. As a senior citizen from Ohio I know when I am in South Florida for four months these guys and gals will ensure my safety AND fun. Thanks to all the staff. Foster

I had a great time diving on the Jay Scutti and Tracy wrecks as well as Grouper Bend with Pompano Dive Center. The equipment and boat was well maintained, and the staff were courteous and knowledgeable.

Ok so this was probably the most informative class I have taken yet, Tony Ernst was our instructor and the detail that was put into this class really showed! He was passionate about every aspect of this certification, immediately after class he took us on the Sea Siren, which is a brand new dive boat, all of our gear was... More
