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

Great scuba operators! Safe and fun! The Black Pearl is very well equipped dive boat. Fresh water showers. At the marina they have air/nitrox fills and rental gear. One stop shopping!

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

Very professional and patient crew. Wether your a beginner or a seasoned diver you are treated with respect. The owner, Jeff, is very knowledgable of all the best dive sites, as is his crew. I've gone out several times and have had a blast every time!

Easy, this is a great dive center for independent divers that don't like being baby-sited. Every time I go diving with them they are impeccable, the boats leave at time and they will get you to the promised dive site. I love the fact that they don't push a divemaster to dive along, being free to dive under your own... More

I almost didn't not give this dive company a chance because of some of the negative reviews, but I'm glad I did. My husband and I, along with our kids who are 21 and 12, had a total blast. This is just what we were hoping for. We all loved Dave...his sense of humor fit in perfectly with our crazy... More

First time using South Florida Diving Headquarter and first drift dive. Had a great time. Dive master Dave was a trip. Current was strong at the wreck, but dive master and captain had it under control. Second dive was a drift dive and that was outstanding. Boat was packed, mainly instruction groups, but few diving buddy groups, that caused captain... More

I went on a dive charter with South Florida Diving Headquarters earlier this month. First of all, this place is very disorganized. There were 28 divers with one captain and one dive master. The dive master was running back and forth trying to help everyone. The captain helped when she could. There should have been at least 1 or 2... More
