Lauderdale, Hollywood, Dania Beach and Miami call South Florida Diving Headquarters.

"You can dive, snorkel or watch from above all on the same boat. "Why Choose South Florida? Because Pompano Beach and Ft. Lauderdale have: Biodiversity South Florida reefs are teaming with tropical fish, the same species seen throughout the Caribbean. Accessibility Come by plane, train or automobile. 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. Wreck Diving Capitol The Gold Coast claims over 100 shipwrecks in all depth ranges. Greater Ft. Lauderdale has the most active Artificial Reef Program.Short Boat Rides S. 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? Accommodations: We have every style and price to fit your taste or budget. From quaint cottages to luxury 5 star hotels. Rated Top Ten Scuba Diving Magazine rated SE Florida top ten in "World's best Wreck Diving, Marine Life & Value Destination", in 2004.

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!

Staff was friendly helpful, called to arrange over the phone last minute and got a spot. They gave us good directions topside about how to see lighthouse ledge. The boat put us right on top of the feature. There was't a guide to go with us, if you are experienced this should be no problem. It wasn't for us. We... More
