Mallory was a great guide. Very friendly and informative! Also gave some recommendations of what to do (as we were on vacation) in the area. The walk was short and all gear was provided! Will definitely be back.

I went on a scuba trip set up by Steve to the Copenhagen wreck and nursery. I had an absolute blast. Steve recommended this dive as I haven’t dove in a couple of years, and it was perfect. Not too deep, clear, lots of things to see and if there has been an issue, we were within the no stop limit so it felt very safe. Equipment rental, boat fees, and guide fees were all very reasonable. Sky, who was our guide, was fantastic as well, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Highly recommend Gold Coast Scuba if you’re looking for a trip in Ft. Lauderdale. Thanks for a great dive!

We had a great time! The crew at Gold Coast was super knowledgeable about the local wildlife and where to go. Steve described exactly what to expect: a 3 block walk, and about a 70 yard swim out to the reef. Cam helped fit and orientate us to our gear: a wetsuit, fins, mask and snorkel. He was our guide while we were out in the water. After a quick walk down to the beach, and a short swim out, the sandy bottom started to give way to coral. And like magic, the fish started to appear. It wasn’t just a few, but soon schools of fish emerged from the depths of the coral: A nurse shark was quietly tucked under a shelf, the parrot fish, puffers, and angel fish darted around the fan corals. We were in the water for about an hour. Cam kept an eye out and led us around the reef, pointing out various landmarks and wildlife. The trip was just long enough. Katie (15 year old) was getting tired towards the end of it, any longer and I’m sure Cam would’ve had to tow her back to the beach! Definitely worth it, and we had a great time! Thanks Gold Coast Scuba!

Very very nice owner, laid back cool dude who was a true pleasure and credit to his craft, however his assistant B was anything but cordial and chastised us for a few grains of sand on flippers etc we rented.

Loved everything! I had a great time snorkeling and at such a reasonable price. The staff (Steve and Cameron) were very nice and extremely knowledgeable. It was a short walk to the beach (about 3 blocks) and then an easy swim out to the reef. The wet suit they provide you with makes it easy to swim and float so you don't need to be a great swimmer, just decent. The reef was beautiful and I saw a tremendous number and variety of fish. The entire excursion took less than 3 hours so I was back in time for the beach! I would highly recommend this for beginners or for more experienced as well.
