I dove with Southpoint while in KW last week and had a great time with these good folks. On the reef dives they pared me up with another single and we had 2 nice long dives on a shallow reef ~30 min from port. The crew gave us a very good briefing on the layout of the reef and where... More

My daughter and I just got referral certified at SPD. IT was a great experience: • The crew was professional and courteous. We got everything that was mentioned, no surprise charges. • Our instructor, Scott, is PADI certified (obviously), and he was patient teacher. He made sure we were prepared every step of the way. • Good equipment, including wet... More

Southpoint Divers is a great dive company. We have dove with them multiple times, and the service is excellent. They are great with the customers no matter what skill level.

We did the morning dive. as my husband is PADI advanced and i am open water diver we were told i needed a guide. the reception at the morning check in was borderline hostile - explaining that we should be in different groups as a result and treating the request that we be together as a dreadful affront. paid the...

I am sorry to hear about your experience with us. This experience seems uncharacteristic of Southpoint Divers. I am sorry about the confusion with how we do our guiding procedures. As far as Scott guiding, if you look a reviews of him in the past he is always praised on how good he. It sounds he might have been off... More

I've always had a bit of a phobia when it comes to thinking about diving. My boyfriend is PADI certified and has always wanted me to get my certification done so we could dive together. I finally had the nerves to do it but was extremely nervous throughout the process. He had gotten his certification @ Southpoint back in 2009... More

This is our second time with Southpoint Divers, and they did not disappoint. Drew was a fantastic guide. The dive sites were remarkable. We saw amazing sea life. Will definitely come back to SPD!

These folks run a good operation, though it would have been nice if there were refreshments other than water on the boat - this is the first one I've been on that didn't offer some kind of snack during surface interval. Dive briefing was less detailed than most but after all we didn't pay the upcharge for a guide. All... More
