South Florida Diving Headquarters was my first charter dive. We did a wreck dive and a drift dive. I felt very safe with the captain and crew. The dives themselves were fun and we even saw a huge Logger Head Turtle. They provide you with snacks and water.

I have dove here on a few occasions. Went back to dive more. Dove a 1 p.m. boat trip. Weather was a little windy but the dives were good.. Boat crew was great as always! The boat captain and Dive Master were very friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back!

I was down in FL for a couple of weeks this summer and thought it would be cool to become scuba certified. I headed down to the SFDH and took the course with Rhonda, best decision i've made in a while. If you're thinking about getting certified, I'd highly recommend heading down and asking for Rhonda, she's awesome! I had... More

I came to Pompano to get advanced scuba certified and our instructor, Malcolm Kneale, chatted us on the SFDH Aqua View. Chris was the captain and Tessa was mate and they did a great job. They covered all the "necessaries" and so much more. They made all of us feel very comfortable and told s what to expect on each... More

We've used them before, the price is right and we always have a good time. Capt. Dave and mate Nicole were fun, safe and helpful. Dad and our 11 year old went scuba diving and I snorkeled with our 9 year old. Most folks on the boat were tourists and Capt. Dave and Nicole were exceptional with them, explaining, giving... More

I was looking for a dive boat, and they are the only ones to have answered the phone! They warned me I might not make the 0900 launch time because of traffic - I just barely made it. They were all ready for me to sign up and go. Good dives, Pontoon boat - could be crowded some times, I... More

My husband picked this company because he could book online, easy reservation/booking. The staff was friendly and fun, helpful and I felt safe. When i had any questions, they were answered quickly which made me feel at ease. The boat was at capacity with divers and the staff kept the process organized and offered water snacks and fresh fruit. I... More

This is a great way to experience scuba diving if you are not certified! We arrived at 10 a.m. and had training in a pool to become familiar with our equipment and basic hand signals. We then took an hour lunch break and we were off to our first dive! Our first dive was at a shipwreck called Copenhagen, and... More

My grandson (12) wanted to try scuba diving, so he and I signed up for the Discover Dive. The rest of the family - 4 adults and 4 kids, 6, 7, 9 and 10 all went on the boat in the afternoon to snorkel. Dave in the shop, Steve, our dive guide, was great! I can't say enough about how... More
