The staff of this dive shop is nothing short of professional and accommodating. They worked with me to fit in a great dive when my schedule was extremely limited. I would definitely recommend this dive shop to anyone visiting and wishing to dive in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area. Can't say enough good things.

I completed my open water certification here and it was great! Pricing in the Miami area is very steep but this shop was on the lower end and allowed for much more flexibility when scheduling the lessons, and as a full time student who also works, this was very important. I also went alone so I was very nervous but everyone there instantly put me at ease. The instructors were funny, helpful, and most importantly, patient. Thank you to Michael, Sebastian, Luchi, and Davin who made this experience really special and easy!

Outstanding service, we took the Project AWARE Sea Turtle course, Navigation Dive and finished in September with The Project AWARE Shark Conservation course. The instructors were patient and knowledgeable. So much so, that my daughter really wants to get into diving again after taking off for a couple of years. The option in going on a shark dive was definitely the best time I have had in a long time. I can’t thank the ENTIRE Squalo dive team enough.

I am getting my PADI Open Water Diver training from Squalo. There experience has been top notch. Everyone who works there is professional and passionate about what they do. I had Cristina for the pool sessions and Alejandro for the first open water dives. Both were excellent. Highly recommended.

I just finished my rescue diver course with Squalo Divers. I also received my open water and advanced certs from them years ago. I came back because their service and support is unparalleled. They work with you and your schedule to make sure the class can be done on your time and they also have a pool on site so no need to drive to different locations to complete the classes. They also have a great gear selection and their prices are incredibly reasonable. I really see no reason to visit another shop and will be back! Thank you Squalo Divers!

I just got my PADI OW certificate from them, all I wanna say is they are the best, responsible, and also knowledgeable. As a new diver, I do have a lot of questions and I’m not living in FL, I got to make sure everything then book my ticket and hotel to be there. I emailed a lot of diving shops, but there r one of only responded to me and answer all my questions with the patient. And make a plan for my three-week Tuesday schedule.
I had Alejandro as my inspector, he was great and I learned a lot from him, and from that, I’m so sure to get my AOW and rescue from them and him. As a “tourist”, and he will share the best local restaurant for different types of food to you, I follow the list, and the list never let me down.
I will move to Miami during this summer, and I will keep learning how to be a better diver with them.

Best school and experience ever, there are no words to describe the level Professionalism that the Squalo Diver instructors have, you will alway be treated as family, the professionalism and confidence is felt the moment you arrive at the shop, when people love what they do it becomes very easy and natural to teach or train others. I want to give my sincere and special thanks to the instructors Alejandro Otero, Thomas Leonard, Luchy…. Thank you for everything🙏

I completed my basic PADI open-water diver certification with Squalo. To a man, they were consummate professionals, thorough and knowledgeable, providing excellent instruction with a mix of great personalities and a genuine passion for diving. Went above and beyond in many cases. During the lessons they took great photos and videos that they shared with me at the end. Perhaps the clearest endorsement I can give is that I was terrified on the way to the first open water dive, and by the end of the second I only wanted more. Thanks for everything, will see you back for the next certification!

I had a great time completing my PADI certification course with Squalo Divers. I completed my instructional work earlier in the year at Boston Scuba but wanted to complete my open water dives somewhere a bit more tropical. Diving in Miami along with the Squalo Divers team was the perfect answer. Cristina was an incredible communicator. She made sure all my paperwork was in order and I had the appropriate gear. Sebastian is the rock of this organization making sure everything works in a safe, coordinated fashion. Finally, my instructor Rosie was first class. She was patient, smart, and encouraging. I will see you all in the Fall to get trained on Nitrous and go deeper!

My fiancé and I came for our PADI Open Water Certification. Amazing experience. Everyone was extremely nice and offered a top-notch experience! As a new diver it was nice to be under the guidance of someone I truly trusted and felt safe with.
