Friendly staff but crowded boat

We went on Labor Day weekend so we knew in advance, the boat would be packed. It was. However, the staff is friendly and they have free parking. (You do have to pay a toll to... read more

we just got both of my 10 year old kids PADI certified. Omar Jr. Was their instructor. He was amazing with them. So patient and very thorough. He made them feel confident and comfortable and took his time to make sure they really understood everything they needed to understand. I was certified by them 14 years ago and they were... More

My husband and I got up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday and drove 40 minutes to the boat dock to be there promptly before 8 am. We paid in advance with our credit card for a 2 tank dive for each of us. By 8:20 we had filled out the waivers along with at least 10 other... More

My husband and I knew we were coming to dive in October. We made contact with the shop via email asking many questions. Omar the owner emailed back rather quickly with short, to the point answers. No problem! We requested to be booked on two specific days with the shop. He said fine, didn't take a deposit and requested we... More

We went on Labor Day weekend so we knew in advance, the boat would be packed. It was. However, the staff is friendly and they have free parking. (You do have to pay a toll to get there.) My only complaint is that they don't list the dives they are planning to do on their website. Would be great to... More

Got my three boys PADI certified by Diver's Paradise. For their checkout dives they took them to some nice local dive sites and took wonderful care of us. I was in a hurry, so he arranged a private class right at their shop making it super convenient. The class included all the equipment and instruction. Omar and Omar Jr. took... More

My father and I simply turned up and I asked to dive. They were very welcoming and even though my dad doesn't dive, they let him come on the boat for free. Two excellent dives and on my second dive, I was followed by a hammer head shark! They supplied all of the kit and I was even able to... More

I am very sad to write this but this company was a very big disappointment to us last week. Before leaving for our 9-day vacation in South Beach Miami, I called Omar at Diver's Paradise to book a snorkeling day trip on July 11 (for my husband's bd). Omar asked me to first fill out a reservation by email and... More

Omar Jr. Is a great instructor who certified my daughter at age 13 and has a great rental equipment service. The captain Eric Cartaya is very knowledgeable about the reefs and wrecks. Overall an excellent place to dive.

We recently did our 2nd outing with the crew at Diver's Paradise. Both trips, the first one 2 years ago and this one last week, showed a professionally run shop with a large, comfortable boat, new shop with gear and teaching facility, and helpful crew. On this trip we requested and were able to dive the Neptune Memorial just east... More

Been visiting Omar and his family's scuba shop for many years now... They built (or had it built) an awesome dive shop, AND their boats and services are always excellent and very customer friendly. Great to dive there again, crandon park marina, key biscayne, close to miami, very very solid service provider. THANKS!
