Three international airports, cheap airfares. No passport required and no entry & exit fees. Quick easy access down A1A from Deerfield and Ft. Lauderdale. Dive Conditions Because of the close proximity of the Gulf Stream, SE Florida reefs are bathed in warm clear water year around.

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! Drift Dives Does the thought of lazily drifting along the reef with the current and surfacing when you are ready appeal to you?

My two kids and I went snorkeling today for the first time. It was a wonderful day! Everyone there was so nice and helpful and understanding about all of our confusion and concerns. Snorkeling sites were really beautiful and interesting. I can't wait to go snorkeling again.

nice gang of crew, equipment was nice and pretty new, the boat was clean and diver-friendly. The only thing I wished if there was a place to hide from chilling wind. I figured why some people gave bad comment for this company, because they were looking for babysitters.

Had a great day diving the nursery and SS Copenhagen with SFWH! Registration upon arriving was quick; the crew made sure that everyone had everything they needed quickly, so the boat could leave on time; once on the water, the crew were very helpful and accommodating to all divers & snorkelers. The dive sites I visited were both fantastic –... More

We dove 8 dives over three days in July with SFDH and had an excellent time! We liked all the captains and dive masters we had. We spent time on all three boats and dove in everything from heavy current to no current even having to do a hot drop at one location due to an incoming tropical wave. This... More

Did a few dives last week. The web site for signing up for dives is more of a suggestion and reality. Be ready for anything. For example I signed up for a shallow reef and almost got stuck diving to 125 feet for a wreck. We worked out a split dive. The staff is pretty kicked back and will help... More

I love everything about this little shop. From the cute building to the no-nonsense super helpful and friendly staff. I went out for a wreck and reef dive to get my open water cert. There was a captain (Nick) and Divemaster (Nicole) on board and they were both awesome. Nicole worked her butt off making sure all the divers (most... More

We did 5 dives with SFDH and each one was great! The captains and crew were knowledge and friendly, especially Attila who was the most helpful first mate I've ever had on a boat. They worked hard to get us on the sites we wanted while making sure we would had good diving conditions. I would highly recommend these guys... More

We went on 7 dives with this dive operation this weekend and we had an awesome time. Tessa was a great dive master who was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back and dive here again! Great dive sites, drift dives, night dives, wreck dives!

Fun dives, professional crew, nice boats. Pompano reefs and wrecks had more life than I expected. Nice drift dives.
