Took my open water and nitrox with the dive master Clay. Hes very knowledgeable and extremely focused on safety which is great. He takes the time to explain things in detail and doesnt mind going over things multiple times to make sure you understand it. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to get certified.

As a novice diver, it made sense to me to hire a dive guide. I reached out to the folks at Boynton Beach Dive Center and they hooked me up with two great master divers Katie and Clay. I worked with each of them on two separate trips.

Clay is a by-the-book diver, which was a great comfort to me as a rookie. He really took the time to do a complete dive briefing, review signals and the dive plan, he asked me questions to make sure I knew my stuff, and then he answered all of my questions. In the water, Clay pointed out amazing marine life that I would have missed as a midwesterner not familiar with the ocean. He coached me through the whole dive and has built my confidence for the sport. Clay has great stories from his years of diving that he freely shares. Be sure to ask him about his shark signal. Hilarious!

Katie was a dream as well. She paid great attention to ensuring I knew the dive signals, that I was well-versed in the dive plan, that I felt comfortable, and that all my questions got answered. During the dive, she pointed out the awesome marine life that I may have missed. There were some skills that I needed a bit of a refresher with and she helped me to improve them. She's calm and cool in sticky situations, like when we lost one of our buddies and needed to surface. Katie is kind and caring and helped me feel at ease as a new diver.

I took the Open Water cert. class with Clay Hertzoff. Everything was excellent. Clay was a fun and through instructor who made sure that everyone in the class became a safe diver and also enjoyed themselves. He made the relatively dry "classroom" material fun, and he made sure everyone felt comfortable on the checkout dives. I would highly recommend this to anyone needing to take classes or rent gear.

Just got my certification from Rachel here, highly recommend coming here to learn. I never thought I’d A: be interested in diving at all and B: want to do it all the time!

You’re in good hands here... if you don’t think you’d be into scuba diving, you’re flat out wrong! I’ll leave you with this joke:

Q: Why did the stingray have a chat with the scuba diver?
A: he wanted to have a manta man chat

I flew to Florida from Switzerland to get my advanced certification.

Rachel took me in as a new student and made me feel comfortable right away. She inspired self-confidence and taught me to learn from my mistakes. She took the time to share her passion for scuba diving with me and made this whole trip an unforgettable experience. I ended up doing 18 dives using top quality rental gear from the shop and completed 5 specialties.
I also got to dive with other BBDC staff members (Hunter, Ethan, Tom & Deb) who simply added a generous amount of extra gravy on an already amazing experience. I would happily trade snowboarding in the alps for diving with these guys any day!

I went on snorkeling adventure yesterday with Rachel from Boynton Beach Dive Center. Rachel was great, she set me up with gear and snorkel mask was great, comfortable and didn't leak or fog up. Rachel quizzed me on what I learned from doing the on line reading. When we got to Herren Bridge she explained the boundaries and where we would be snorkeling. Rachel took the time to show me how to dive properly, kicking from my hips which helped me swim underwater longer. She pointed out all the cool things to see underwater and lots of fish with beautiful colors that swim right up to your face. Rachel makes you feel comfortable from the moment you walk into the dive shop. I met Tom too the owner who was nice and helpful as well. I highly recommend Rachel for your next outdoor dive or snorkel adventure, Rachel rocks.

I went into this dive center yesterday and Rachel helped me out immensely. She seemed really busy with other customers but she still greeted me right away and helped as soon as she could. Not only was she kind and patient but she gave me amazing advice to fix my diving issue and totally fixed the problem! I now want to drive from Boca to visit this shop because of how knowledgeable and happy my experience was! Customer service is really important to me since I’m a small business owner myself. Looking forward to continue using my new gear I purchased and asking her for a dive guide soon around the Boynton reefs! Thanks so much Rachel!!!

We came down to Deerfield Beach with another dive shop from Fort Myers, however, our dive was cancelled due to weather. We found this dive shop while bumming around. What a great find! Super nice people, go out of your way to make you feel welcome and taken care of. They have everything here you could want for your diving experience, gear, Electronics, information, dive groups. Definitely our new favorite dive shop! Thanks Deb and Tom

It's a nice place. People are friendly. Drinks and food are ok. Great if you're a local. Atmosphere is a little tired and it's not a very large place. It's just average. Nice, but average.
