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?

Pompano drop off very limited sea life and little color. The Copenhagen was interesting, but nothing to die V 4. Maybe there other sites are more exciting. But I would make the drive to Key Largo.

Took two teens (15, 18) to Pompano from Richmond, VA for their first ocean dives after being certified in a quarry. We made online reservations and booked a two-tank dive on Saturday the 27th and two two-tank dives with 3 snorkelers on the later 2 dives on the 28th. We arrived at the time they suggested, which was 7:30 am... More

Had a good time with our kids. Guides and captain very friendly. We snorkel end while others scuba dived. We had to wait for some of the divers to resurface which held us up a bit. Glad we brought our own equipment, heard others complain about broken equipment.

Called the SFDH and the gentleman who answered the phone was very helpful and I was looking forward to a relaxing Sunday afternoon and perhaps evening of diving. The gentleman then switched me over to the scheduler. She wasn't so helpful. After a few minutes on the phone she had another customer come in so asked if she could call... More

This trip was very fun. We saw lots of fish, we also saw nurse sharks. They took us to two sites and the sites weren't very deep. One site was a ship wreck and we saw the anchor to the ship.

I loved this trip! My husband and I went snorkling with another couple and a family with younger children (8 and 10 I believe). Captain and divers were very nice, knowledgeable and fun. Good at putting you at ease. This made me want to go diving again and the time out was well worth the money. $40 per adult for... More

This dive boat AQUA VIEW was fabulous. It was our first dive, we were nervous. The crew was very very helpful, very knowledgeable, and extremely busy making sure we got the best experience. The seas were 3-5 feet (choppy). The crew assisted wet divers up the ladders, to their seats, made sure to offer water, helped with equipment, absolutely the... More

Used their boats for 2 days of diving and the staff on board were great. When we got up from a dive, they helped us back to our area and handed us a bottle of water. They were accommondating to what diving we wanted. Would use them again
