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

Chose Gold Coast to support dive trip with two friends, after we had landed in South Florida. They were able to bring my buddy up to speed since his last dive was 23 years ago. We dove twice daily for a week. After my buddies left, they provided a Nitrox class (the next day after I asked) and got me... More

Word of advice, you should do this only if you're a good swimmer, unlike me. Even though the underwater scenery was perfect I'm not the best swimmer therefore I was stuck tagging along. Lol, still a great thing to do and get off your bucket list. We had a blast and the weather perfect. The instructors were super cool and... More

I went to the shop to rent some dive gear, excellent service and all the gear was in mint condition. I highly recommend this place.

We heard about this site through Groupon and were not disappointed! Mike was super informative and thorough about what to expect. He took his time going over the process and how we'd feel once we got there. I felt great about his emphasis on safety and the importance of conservation. Mike was also knowledgeable about the town and local events... More

This place is TOP notch. They are experts and can teach the fundamentals of snorkeling very quickly. They put safety concerns before anything and it was very comforting to know how experienced they were. I had Mike as a guide and went snorkeling off of the beach with a group of 8 people. He always made sure we were together... More

the staff goes out of their way to help you out and give you information. We went diving with them several days and they give discount for the boats. One staff went with us on his days off to dive with us and to make sure we were treated well.

My 10 yr old son and I went scuba diving form the shore in front of our resort, the Windjammer. David our scuba instructor was so patient and knowledgeable. I felt very safe and was able to relax and enjoy the beauty of the ocean. I would do this again in a heart beat. Love love love Gold Coast Scuba.

Great service started when I called from Wisconsin and ask a few questions over the phone and did not end until I turned in my rental equipment. I love good customer service and they have it down pat. Every time I called they were always willing to help and take time to answer my questions. Never felt rushed or pressured... More

We took a long weekend away and come all the way from NJ. We decided to do some snorkeling because I have never been and my boyfriend hadn't done it in forever!
