Snorkeling

Mike was a great guide for our snorkeling trip! I would definitely recommend the wet suit if you are not a strong swimmer.

We were pleasantly surprised at how great the snorkeling was here just a short walk from the shop. We didn't initially want to wear the wet suits we are glad we took the recrimination of our dive master to do so. It seemed to take a long time to get all our group and equipment rounded up, but it was... More

I got my PADI open water diving certification with Gold Coast Scuba. Brad was my instructor and he was awesome. He was very knowledgable, professional, safety oriented, and chill.

One of the best dive shops in LBTS - just steps from the beach. Snorkelers and Divers paradise - especially for Shore Divers! Great customer service. Family-owned. Convenient store hours. Abundance of sea life is on the reef just 100 yards off the beach throughout most of the length of the Town. Best part -- they have Nitrox -- so... More

Our family of 6 adults were led on a snorkeling outing right off the beach. Gold Coast fitted us with all the equipment we needed, including wet suits. After admiring ourselves at how professional we looked we headed to the water, about a 10-minute walk through the charming town of Lauderdale by the Sea. We waded right in and were... More

Had an amazing time!!! Our instructor was friendly and patient. We got to see all kinds of interesting fish and stingrays and sea turtles and other wildlife. I would highly recommend paying Gold Coast Scuba a visit

Brought my family from Boston so my son could complete his Open Water checkout. The wind was blowing from the east, so we had to adjust the schedule twice to accommodate. Bill kept us informed the entire time and made sure everything ran smoothly. Their rental gear is well maintained and shop is well stocked. Air and Nitrox fills available.... More
