I've been to Sarasota on holiday a few times but never dived there because I'd read that diving on the other side of the Florida peninsula would be better. This time I decided to stick closer to home and got in touch with these guys. I'm so pleased I did. I went out on a couple of trips and had... More

I needed to find a place to continue my diving hobby. I've been sport diving for years and normally do it with groups or on vacations. I went to this dive shop because it was close to home and I was impressed by staff when I first walked in. They were friendly and informative. I brought my basic equipment down,... More

I am a 'would be diver' who had gotten his Open Water and Advanced Water certification last summer up North but hadn't had a chance to actually dive. As such, on a recent trip down to Florida I thought I might go out diving but first wanted to do a scuba review so to build up my confidence and feel... More

I have now completed 20 dives with Florida Underwater Sports since first meeting them a few months ago. What began as just another casual booking with another local dive shop, has turned into a close bonding experience that I am truly grateful for. After our first dive with Divemaster Jason Coladner, I decided to start the Master Diver Program, the... More

I recently booked two days of diving with this dive shop. I have dealt with this dive shop before and I can't say enough about them. They have always been very accommodating and their staff is extremely knowledgeable.

We recently had several opportunities to dive with Florida Underwater Sports and can’t praise them highly enough. This is a top quality operation. We recently chartered a dive with them, to two artificial reefs off of Siesta Key. The latter was probably the best boat dive I have enjoyed. What made the biggest impression on us, however, was the crew.... More

Excellent customer service, I was able to plan and reserve the dives months prior to my arrival. Chris was safety conscious and the crew chose nice dive locations. Would definitely dive with Florida Underwater Sports again.

We did two days boat diving and one shore dive. The first day, we had boat troubles but the captain was so gracious and apologetic. It didn't ruin our dive experience at all.
