After a long NE winter I decided to make a 4 day trip down to Florida for some R&R which really amounted to 4 days diving, eating and some sleeping. Not knowing any operators in the area I decided to book my trip through the dive shop I was familiar with; Scuba Network in Deerfield Beach, Florida. They, in turn,... More

I dive with these guys all the time, Everyone there wants to make you feel welcome. They make sure you have everything you need for a good experience. More Importantly, they never let you forget that their first goal is "Safety". I have always enjoyed my time with them and their visitors. A good time was had by all.

With its own parking lot, this dive outfit is friendly and hassle free. It is a very pleasant experience to dive with them. Divemasters are comedic and fun and the boat crew is very safety conscious. I highly recommend them.

I went diving with these guys on Memorial Day, after not diving for far too long. This was my first time using this company and it was just as good as all of the other dive charters I have used in South Florida over the years. They have a few large boats, I was on a large pontoon with about... More

We went out for a 2 tank dive with Bradley and Tess, they were awesome, took care of every need had by anyone along on the boat. It was a great adventure. We enjoyed it completely. Only wish we had more time to go out on other dive excursions, but we will be back!

Went on three separate 2-tank dives with them. The boats are very good and they bring fresh pineapple, peanut butter crackers, and water bottles on the trip. I did two trips with Dave (staff member) and Dennis the captain. They were awesome. Dave took care of everything for me and my buddy. He loaded up all of our equipment onto... More

I've dove with SFDHQ in the past, but it had been a little over a year since my last dive with them: I decided marine conditions looked a little better in Pompano than Jupiter so made the drive down and was not disappointed. While S. Florida in general and Pompano in particular have many good dive operators, SFDHQ is at... More

On a visit to Pompano beach with my mom and grandma, I decided I wanted to go snorkeling and check out the wreck sites that this area is so famous for.
