Florida's reef track begins less than a 1/4 mile offshore. You'll have made 2 dives before you could get to the keys!

Of course the diving in itself was awesome, but the staff was really nice and helpful, they let us jump and swim from the boat once the first dive was over. Diving... More

My family and I enjoyed a fun morning of snorkeling. The crew members were fun and helpful. I thought it was a good value for the money.

The diving was very good but the staff was outstanding. I had some weight belt issues on the first dive, my own gear. and my wife had ear problems on the second dive but I was able to partner up with a father and daughter so all was good. Since all diving is good to me I won't dwell on... More

Signed up my family for afternoon snorkeling excursion. Had a blast. The guides were great, very personable, and helped with our first timer young snorkelers. The 2 stops were fascinating. Better snorkeling here than our time in key west. Definitely a repeat.

Best experience ever they taught my 7yr old how to snorkel. Even though I got a little sea sick still had the time of my life. My wife and kids still rave about the experience. I will go back again.

Had 4 great dives during the Lobster mini season. Only got one lobster but had very enjoyable dives with great dive masters and skippers. We will be back.

South Florida Diving Headquarters was my first charter dive. We did a wreck dive and a drift dive. I felt very safe with the captain and crew. The dives themselves were fun and we even saw a huge Logger Head Turtle. They provide you with snacks and water.

I have dove here on a few occasions. Went back to dive more. Dove a 1 p.m. boat trip. Weather was a little windy but the dives were good.. Boat crew was great as always! The boat captain and Dive Master were very friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back!

I was down in FL for a couple of weeks this summer and thought it would be cool to become scuba certified. I headed down to the SFDH and took the course with Rhonda, best decision i've made in a while. If you're thinking about getting certified, I'd highly recommend heading down and asking for Rhonda, she's awesome! I had... More
