I wrote a review a little over a year ago and wanted to write another one because my experience yesterday was just as good. In the year since, I used other scuba charters and wasn't impressed for various reasons. One of them was less expensive but the experience was less that satisfying. Adam and Maggie are terrific. It's obvious they love what they do and run a great operation. Online booking was easy, as was completing the waiver. I noticed yesterday that several of the other divers were regulars. Adam and Maggie knew them by name we all had a great time!!! The reefs were well selected and the dives were fantastic. It was relaxed and Adam and Maggie could not have been more accomodating and friendly. Earlier in this review I mentioned other dive charters. One in particular just seemed to want to get divers in and out of the water and the reef selections were very poor, not just the first dive, but the second as well. I won't be using them anymore. I'm using Starfish from now on and suggest you do the same thing.

DO NOT DIVE THIS BOAT IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR GEAR 👎👎👎👎👎 Adam Birdwell (owner of starfish scuba) is under the delusion that it's ok to DAMAGE YOUR GEAR and not do anything about it. My Riffe speargun is now damaged beyond use due to the fact it was poorly stowed by a crew member. The gun was caught on a piling and splintered the top of my Riffe E110X (retailing about $700). Adam stated he would make good on the situation by replacing the speargun. It has now been over 6 weeks of getting the “RUN-AROUND” and I regretfully gave Adam the benefit of the doubt given his disposition in our industry for burning bridges with customers & people he does business with.

Just came back from 4 days of great dives. From the booking to the very last dive, everything went perfect. I'm into deep, wreck dives so I was looking forward to their Goliath Grouper/Castor dive. When I didn't see it scheduled for my dates I contacted the shop and Maggie quickly emailed me back saying "I added it on those dates" How easy was that - SOLD! The boat crew is easygoing yet hardworking, helpful and very knowledgeable. They are also super generous with air (3500+psi) NITROX (35+%). The boat is clean and comfortable with dry storage, coolers for water/cameras/catch - only issue is the Marine Head is "Haunted." When there was some engine problem on our way back to the dock yesterday the crew helped each other and got the issue resolved. Cheers and huge Thanks to Captain Chris, Instructors Derick and Ren. Great professionalism and team work - you guys are like Three Musketeers!

Really good people to dive with. They know what they’re doing and are so nice and friendly. Shout out to Julia! I am just getting back Into diving after a five year gap. She was so reassuring and a great help. Rest of the crew is awesome too. If you’re in the Boynton Beach area, there’s no reason to travel. Good rental equipment. Just get down to the dock and they will take care of the rest.

My husband and I dove with starfish yesterday with crew members Derek and Marty (forgot captain’s name), we had a great time even though the ocean and dive conditions were less than ideal. We surfaced into white out conditions (aka thunderstorms, and churning ocean all round us), Derek did a great job keeping us together holding on to the rope while waiting for the boat to pick us up).
