Casey (dive master) is awesome! He suggested a night dive to me under the Blue Heron bridge. I never did this before. He offered to give me personal instruction, stay right by me during the entire dive and even help me with my equipment. We met up but the weather was very iffy. Putting safety first, he called the dive... More

Was down in south Florida earlier this week so decided to go for 2 tank dive with Pura Vida. This is a well run professional outfit. They stressed safety and have a nice boat. They all worked well together (Katie, Ryan and Captain Zack.) Reasonable price. Clean water rinse available on boat (nice treat) and towels and snacks. Saw some... More

I found Pura Vida when my former dive shop closed. I don't breath as much gas as my dive buddies so buying gas by the cubic foot is always a good thing for me. I also am really focused on underwater photography and they have some of the best critter spotters around!!! We always compare "finds" and I love the... More

They were knowledgable, pleasant, helpful and fun to chat with before and after the dives...as always! Already planning our next trip except we might come back... More

I went in to this dive shop to find a bcd that worked for me. The staff was knowledgable and supper friendly. They didn't try to sell me something simply based on price. Although I did not get it the same day, I came back the next day to make the purchase. Customer service makes a huge difference! I will... More

Went to West Palm Beach with Blue Planet Scuba DC for a 3 day dive trip. Pura Vida Divers was the shop who serviced us during the visit. From the initial meeting with the staff, filing out paperwork and divers picking up their gear, everything was excellent. The process was smooth and the boat dives were incredible. The shop staff,...

Pura Vida divers is a phenomenal dive shop. Excellent equipment for rental, helpful and attentive staff, and the absolute best dive instructor our family has ever encountered. What more do you need? We visited the crew at Pura Vida to complete our daughter's check out dives. They more than exceeded expectations. Dive instructor/dive master Alex Wallace is amazing. From his... More

Thank you to all of the great staff at Pura Vida. We couldn't have asked for better dive guides or a better boat captain. Thank you Jonathan, Neal, Katie, Casey, Andrea and Capt. Zach.

I was visiting Singer Island this weekend for a family function and decided to dive the Blue Heron Bridge. It was cold outside and the water not as clear as it could be so I wasn't sure if I should go. I am glad I did. I don't know the area and even though I am certified I only dove... More
