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!

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

I've been diving with SFDH for many years. It is a well run, efficient and fun operation. The staff are courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. They are based very close to the inlet and dive spots offshore.

This operator is one that scuba divers like me are up to: minimalist, supportive, easy to deal with and focused on what matters. They can get you on a boat in very short notice or can schedule you on how many days you'd like to dive through their easy-to-use website. Do not expect too much of food on the boat... More

We made a last minute reservation for a two tank dive the same morning. They were very accommodating. The web site said it was a wreck dive and captains choice. There was also another boat going out to the shallows and they asked if we wanted to join them, but we all decided we wanted to do the wreck. So... More

We booked our dives in advance with Missy as we knew exactly what we wanted by their dive calender. This was our 3rd year with SFDH and it was awesome as always. Jeff provides all the wrecks and reefs to satisfy our sense of adventure. Aria, our boat captain, and Dave, our dive master, were right in sync for a... More
