“First Class Operation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

My brother and I decided to do a "bros diving weekend" in Pompano Beach area and happened to sign up with Pompano Dive Center. TRULY A FIRST CLASS OPERATION from our first phone conversation to our last goodbye. The office staff - Tony, Dom & Matt - were professional, thorough, helpful, knowledgeable and welcoming. Captain Brett is SUPER - great guy, relaxed and accommodating - focused on safety first, but in providing the divers a super experience as 2nd through 8th priorities. All dive mates were likewise - Emily, Curtis & Ryan - varied in personalities - were a lot of fun and just wonderful people to be around. Pompano Dive Center is professional and attentive to your whole experience.

With nearly experiencing 100 dives for each of us through a number of dive operators in several states and countries, this operation rated up there as one of the top operations. The variety of dives off Pompano Beach are outstanding - wonderful wrecks with lots of variety in depths, marine life, level of intactness, etc. Each wreck dive was followed by a relaxing drift dive over a reef - again large variety of marine life.

We truly enjoyed our whole experience diving with this crew.

“Great! Amazing crew!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

First class operation! DIVEMASTER RYAN is amazing...attentive to each divers needs, explains fully what to do & expect during your dives. My regulator was not functioning properly & Ryan exchanged his own with mine so I could make the dives. We have been on many many dive boats & this captain/divemaster team was the best we have ever experienced.
Drinks & snacks supplied in abundance as well.
Fav dive was the reef drift.

“Nice Dive Boat with Great Crew”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

After diving the Keys we had a chance to dive the Ft. Lauderdale area before leaving Florida. The best part was the crew, The divemaster/deck crew went to each group of divers and gave a thorough briefing and answered any questions, they didn't just make a general announcement before the dive, blah, blah blah. On the first dive the skipper was on the bow monitoring the ascents and on the drift dive the boat was right there after 45 minutes with 3 groups in the water. The coral diving was nice (drift dive) but the mystery barge wreck was easily explored with half your tank and then not much more to explore with the rest of your gas... There are other wrecks to dive but the schedule varies, and we only had one day, so plan wisely.....
