Tarpoon Lagoon Dive Center: what do users think?


Mike Maynes: I love heading to South Beach and diving with Tarpoon Lagoon. You get a quality dive boat, superb Captain Ani, and experienced and friendly instructors. I generally dive the shallow sites, but the boat goes to all kinds of reefs and wrecks at different depths. There’s also pay by app parking under a building in the shade, as well as full marina amenities with deli, restaurants, and the stocked dive shop.
Response: Thank you Mike! We love having you dive with us! See you underwater again soon!

OfficialCrescent: Absolutely amazing dive center. I did quite thorough research about literally every dive center in Miami and this stuck with me. Their customer service is next to none with instructors and staff who treat you like their own family. Their prices are reasonable especially compared to what others are charging. They have pretty good rental gear, along with a fully equipped store for all your needs. The boat has everything that a person could need from oxygen to life rafts. Their instruction is very well conveyed, showing complex topics with very clear concepts. Doing your certification or dives with them will have you set for a career! - Aryan
Response: Thank you for the amazing review! We are looking forward to your return to dive with us!

Olivia Thompson: Amazing place with amazing people. Hannah is a fantastic instructor. Meghan is a wonderful receptionist. There was also a man on our dive and I didn’t get his name but he really helped me when I was getting scared in the open water. Definitely recommend.
Response: Hi Olivia, we are so happy that you had a great time. You were a great student. We can't wait to have you come back and dive with us! Happy bubbles!

Samantha Kissell: My dad and I took the scuba training class before the dive with Jerry. He was very knowledgeable and patient with us! He answered all of our questions and we felt confident about the dive later that day. Such a great group of people, very helpful, it was a great experience!
Response: Hi Samantha, Thank you for the great review! We really appreciate it! Jerry had a great time diving with you and cant wait for your return to Miami! SEA you soon

Ginelle Peterson: My sister and I took our Open Water Diving Certification at Tarpoon Lagoon, and our instructor was with Hannah and Maya. We had the absolute best experience. Extremely thorough in the content and techniques of safe diving and very empathetic and patient trainers. They also are hilarious which made the entire two days fun. The vibes are just really cool at this place, and you can tell they prioritize respect and kindness within their entire team by how close all the employees are with one another. Hannah is also specialized (or certified) in identifying fish. What made the experience even better was how good she was at finding the sea creatures in the water that someone else may just swim over. She spotted multiple really cool species like an eel hiding away, sting rays and two babies, huuuuge puffer fish, and many more. Lastly, I recommend buying your own goggles and snorkel gear at the shop, it was a game changer. Highly recommend!!
Response: Thank you Ginelle! You were so fun to have as a student, and we can't wait to have you join us again for another dive and your advanced certification someday!

Christina Franquiz: Great Dive shop and great dive classes. Instructors are top notch and extremely patient. Pat and Mondo have a special place in my heart. My ears are really sensitive to the pressure changes and they made me feel comfortable during every step in the certification process. 10/10 highly recommend
Response: Hi Christina, we will pass on the love to Pat and Mondo! Thank you for learning to dive with us, we can't wait to have you join us in the water again soon!

Meera Zucker: We did our Open Water Diving course with Bruce & Tyler. Sadly, the ocean was too rough to go out for the open water dives but we were able to adapt and use a local lake instead. This was super important to my friend and I as we flew in just to get this certification - we were relieved there was a Plan B! Bruce was very thorough as it was a lot to cover in 2 days, but by the end of it we were able to do the dives. It was also really nice to have Tyler with us as I had trouble equalizing on day 1 so I didn’t feel as rushed/pressured to dive when I didn’t feel comfortable doing so - especially as we had a flight home the day after we finished (which I couldn’t have done with messed up ears). The other staff members in store were also all super friendly & helpful. Thanks, all!!
Response: Hi Meera, we are so happy that you enjoyed your course with us! We will for sure pass it on to Bruce and Tyler. We can't wait to have you join us again for some fun dives! Happy diving :)

Sasha Valdizan: I absolutely loved my experience with Tarpoon. I booked with Tarpoon for a holiday dive and unfortunately their boat broke and we had to go on someone else's boat but their professionalism, dive comrodery, and overall attitudes will have me going back to them. I've been around enough dive shops that I appreciate the ones that not only want 'everyone to have a good time' but also have instructors/guides/employees that build the dive community up. I appreciated the side conversations with their employees about diving, the amount of assistance offered by them and the communication which was above and beyond. Can't wait to book again with them!
Response: Hi Sasha, thank you for the awesome review! Thank you for understanding during our mechanical issues. We are currently back up and running trips from our shop in Miami Beach. Looking forward to diving with again!

Mary Cooper: We interviewed scuba diving places in Miami and surrounding areas up to 2 hours away and found this gem. I was choosing a company that I felt safe sending my 12 year old to get his certification. This company went above and beyond to make this happen, through bad weather and spring break!! Our instructor Hannah, was absolutely the most magnificent choice for an instructor! She treated my son like her own and taught him so well. He is still raving about her and this experience! Her style of teaching is very kinesthetic, making for every type of student to be able to retain the information taught. Not only did he learn so much and got his certification, but he got to see so much sea life!! Best birthday ever!! She was also so supporting of his passion for vegan culture and homeschooling, win win for us!
Response: Hi Mary, Thank you for the great review! We really enjoyed diving with your son. He is a great diver and we are really looking forward to your return. We hope that his certification arrives to you ASAP so he has his first card for his first wallet! Happy Diving!

Taylor Woodward: We booked a dive trip and it was cancelled due to weather, so I cannot speak to the diving, equipment, instruction, etc. All of the employees were friendly and accommodating for the 30 minutes that we were there. My only complaint was that the forecast was consistently calling for windy conditions starting at noon for 3 days prior to our trip. Our trip was cancelled at 9:30 AM (30 minutes after we had to be there) the day of. With the consistent forecast for 3 days prior and the morning of, the trip should’ve been cancelled at 7 AM. If the confidence was high enough at 9:30 AM, then it was high enough at 7 AM to cancel without wasting everyone’s time. The windy conditions didn’t pop up out of nowhere. However, they did give me a full refund with no issues, and I appreciated that.
Response: Hi Taylor, thank you for the review. We wait until the day of to make a decision on the weather. Unfortunately, weather forecasts are not always accurate. It look s like we issued a full refund due to the cancellation was weather based. Next time you return to Miami I hope the weather will be better for you and us. We don't like to cancel. Happy Diving!

Grove Scuba: what do users think?


Sandy Rolstein: They recommended The boat Diaz my daughter and I would go out and for our first open water dive, and, coming from Illinois, it was extremely helpful to know who to dive with … The crew they recommended and dive itself could not have been more perfect! they also recommended a shore dive at blue heron bridge, Just north of West Palm. It was free, you could also snorkel, I’m telling you, it was an amazing trip as well so many props to GROVE SCUBA

Tatiana Arce: I got my open water certification through Grove Scuba and I had a phenomenal experience. The booking was easy, staff were incredibly nice, and the 3 day course was seamless and fun. Matt was my instructor and he was patient, kind, and reassuring. He gave great tips and encouraged us along the way. Everything went smoothly and I can’t wait for my future scuba endeavors!

Alexander Zuriarrain, MD, FACS: Professional dive shop. Did my advanced open water, Nitrox and rescue diver courses with them. Great instructors. Excellent training. HighlyRecommend!

HEIDI LAZCANO: Look no further!! This scuba shop has it all! From the equipment to the staff! I just received my PADI certification with them and I am so happy I did! David was amazing! Funny, knowledgeable and great instructor! We all felt safe with him. Thank you for all you did David! And thank you Groove scuba for introducing me to the world of the ocean 🐠🐟🐠

Daniel “Danny” Leiva: We had an excellent experience during our refresher course and afternoon dives with David! Very patient and clearly incredibly knowledgable. We are looking forward to doing more dives with GS in the future.

Roberto Rosales: Had an amazing experience. The owner goes above and beyond for all of his customers, he even gave us a ride back to our hotel after our course ended late one night since we didn't have a car being from out of state. Me and my fiancé took the Open water diving course and it was amazing. Easy to learn because of the great instructors and we felt more than comfortable after each lesson. Highly recommend them!

Tomas Hernandez: The staff is clearly knowledgeable and quick to help with any issues or questions I had. If they didn't know they weren't scared to let you know that and seek someone who did, something I rarely come across. I went through them to become certified in open water scuba and they were patient with me and my 100 questions. I would completely reccomend them for any scuba needs and would highly recommend Fuming as an instructor, he was nothing short of stellar. 5 stars easily.

Marcos Laboy: Grove Scuba, is the best scuba store with the best instructors. Everyone help me. Not questions ask. An instructor stay with me to finish my e-leaning from 6 pm, time they close pass 11 pm. they gave me a ride home after it. They work with me in their day off. Thanks to them, I'm an open diver certified. Thanks to all the employees. Peter Laboy

Estefany Carvajal: This place is incredible!! Highly recommend it if you're interested in becoming SCUBA CERT. The staff is incredible, my instructor was super awesome. NOT A SINGLE NEGATIVE THING TO SAY ABOUT THIS PLACE!! I will definitely be coming here anytime i need anything scuba related. Love this place!

Robert Acker: Outstanding snorkel and dive outfitter that offers refreshers, certifications and superb dives at sites offshore south Florida. I have had one pre-pandemic and one post-pandemic experience with Grove two years apart, and both were outstanding. Safety is emphasized and the staff is engaging, organized, and flexible. The owners run a great business, and work well with people of all ages.

South Beach Dive And Surf Center: what do users think?


Alexander Barr: Got my PADI certification through the shop and it was a phenomenal experience. Learned all there is to know, feel confident going out in the water. Marco is a great instructor. Thanks again for everything and see you all around in the ocean !
Response: Thank you Alexander for your review. I will be sure to pass the compliments along to Marco. We hope to see you back for your Advanced Certification soon. Sasha

Peisen Tan: After two months of diving with this incredible dive shop, here are what I saw: Sharks, stingrays, groupers, barracudas, stunning corals, wreck, and underwater statues, etc. They have excellent dives with excellent and highly professional instructors and courses all the way from open water to dive master, as well as many specialties, free diving, and spearfishing. Located right next to the famous Ocean Drive in South Beach, if you are a diver or wanna get certified, don't forget to check it out!

Julie Pichora: Fantastic experience with South Beach Dive. They had a wonderful ratio of DM's and staff to divers. I am a solo diver and I was quickly paired with a buddy. I came in from Pennsylvania for a weekend and they were super helpful with pre-dive questions pertaining to Covid-19. I came from the airport to the dive shop and they gave a great recommendation for a cafe nearby for lunch! The two dives I did was Keith's Kanyon Reef and Neptune's Memorial Reed. Both were abundant with aquatic life and the reefs were in good condition (which means great colors for photographs)!

Karan Durbin Emerson: If u ever even thought of trying scuba this is the place to go. They have a class for beginners to come with and instructor and learn what to do. They then take u out to open ocean and take u on 2 dives (ur instructor stays with u) let me say YOU WANT BENJAMINE he was able to keep my wife from giving up, focused on her breathing and at that crucial point in the ocean when it’s LITERALLY SINK OR SWIM he didn’t let me give up. It Was that crucial moment where if you would’ve let fear keep you from doing it one time I don’t think I would’ve ever tried again but we stay there in the water calm controlling our breath he just kept telling me to breathe and eventually I was able to go under I had the most amazing adventure of my life I will never forget it and I am so grateful for Benjamin not letting me give up and doing such a great job teaching especially being he had such a short period of time to do it again.He gave me some ideas of things I could do in my pool to practice because we will be coming back to get our certificates but I will definitely request Benjamin as a teacher and I recommend highly anybody wanted to try scuba to get been as an instructor he’s patient calm and just naturally very relaxed and he can give instructions clearly

J L: Typical Miami Scam Shop - was told that need to book classes with them before specialty shark dive. Turned out to be a lie. The manager is utterly worthless. Scam.

Nicholas Greenberg: Went snorkeling on their Key Largo trip from Miami and it was amazing. The staff were super friendly & attentive and brought us out to two locations on Molasses Reef. Saw multiple barracudas, an angel shark, filefish, parrotfish, angelfish, 3 jacks, and a bunch of other fish. Highly recommend the shop and trip!
Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your time with us Nicholas! Hope to see you again soon!

Justin Weinstein: Great dive shop and excellent staff! Dive masters are knowledgeable and caring. It is obvious that they all really enjoy diving, the company, and their job. I would highly recommend them for training or just going out for a recreational dive trip.

Leo Skadden: SBD is great, highly recommend. We booked a dive trip with them down to the reefs in John Pennekamp and had a blast. The store staff were all very pleasant and very helpful. They let us borrow a clip we needed for then handle of our dive camera and when I forgot to take my dive knife off of my rented BCD they were nice enough to work with me to get it sent to my home. We will absolutely be booking through them next time we're in Miami! The photo is from where our boat launched in key largo.
Response: Thanks for the review Leo! We hope to see you again soon!

Pat White: Very nice and friendly at the store prior to diving. The ride out to Key Largo was fun, bit long but fun anyway, the two guys with us in the van were friendly and kind so that was fine. Not sure though why we have to stop for 30 minutes on the way for lunch.... At the dive site it became apparent that we were not diving with South Beach Divers but with Rainbow Divers instead. I had no idea about this until I got there. On the boat itself I felt abandoned, no one told me anything or who I was to dive with. It was a crew member from Rainbow who asked me who my instructor was and he realised I had no clue what was going on and he invited me to tag along with his group for the dive. I had rented a GoPro for the day and had specifically asked about battery life and was told it was fine. Battery died half way through the second dive so I feel I missed out on footage and wasn’t able to capture any post dive moments on the boat either. Back at the store I was just told “that’s GoPro for ya!”. They also failed to accommodate a discount I was informed I would get and which is usual practice. Clearly the guy in the evening was reluctant and unwilling whereas prior to diving It had been mentioned as part of the package. Maybe he just wanted to close up for the night I don’t know... I left with a feeling that prior to diving they were super nice but after the dive they just didn’t seem to care so much anymore. A bit disappointing. However and to be fair the diving was great, the boat was nice and it was a good day out but again that was the site and another company.

Adam Jones: Went down to Miami and booked an amazing dive, the Captain and Dive Masters were professional, engaging and fun! I would definitely repeat!

Ocean Safari Diving Adventures: what do users think?


Carlos Lopez: I love this place. Service is great, yesterday we got back really late so I called them. and they waited for us to re-fill for day 2 of mini- lobster season. Marlene is a sweetheart makes you feel like a friend instead of a customer.

Wayne G: Been diving 47 years and hadn’t been to this dive shop location in 30 years. I was throughly impressed. Their customer service was world class and prices were very reasonable. They took care of my O2 tank inspection & refill while I waited. They have an excellent inventory of Scubapro dive gear. Great shop.

Chris Lawrenson: We had never been to this shop before and we went in to get some computer batteries changed and The staff treated us like we had been regulars for years and took great care of us for a extremely fair price. Very impressed we will be visiting again!

Jenna Beobide: Positive: Professionalism, QualityGreat experience!!! Captain Rob was very knowledgeable and hospitable. He helped us catch a bunch of fish and have a great time doing it!

Collin Kornhaus: Critical: CommunicationRefused to fill a 1990 aluminum 80 tank that just passed hydro and visual inspection 1 week prior.

Brian Brookman: Ocean Safari is absolutely wonderful. Like diving with Family. I trusted their team to do my daughter's open water certification dives in both Key Largo and Miami and they were superb. Extremely professional, knowledgeable, and great fun to be with. I highly recommend seeking out Ocean Safari for all of your diving needs.

Barry Snyder: Excellent dive operation - safe and professional - offers great get away trips and assists in training and equipment selection - highly recommend Ocean Safari as a dive instructor and boat captain

Alejandro Carro: Best place i have been to very knowledgeable and great prices very impressed 👏

Rafael Pavon: Great place to get gear, super friendly my entire family now goes there. Their dive instructor, Ani, is great.

Freddie PJ: Really nice place. They sell everything and have a friendly and helpfull customer service. Thanx to Roberto, Marlen and Luisito.

Divers Paradise-Key Biscayne: what do users think?


ivan ruiz: An unbeatable experience. Our first time in Florida, we came from Spain. On the boat we did not miss anything, from a hot shower to snacks. Very attentive crew. They didn't give me any problems with the camera, in fact they helped me to get it in and out of the water. When I took it out of the water, they had prepared a container with fresh water for the camera. The instructors and guides are very attentive and friendly. Elana, our guide, very attentive. The bottom full of corals and a lot of biodiversity. If you pass through Key Biscayne, it is a must.

Tyler Piazza: This was a great diving experience! I rented all of my equipment (but I brought my own dive computer and my own camera), and that went very smoothly. They help you with big and small details, and they got us in and out of the water safely, while showing us a good time. The crew were entertaining and knowledgeable. They did a great job at handling people with different language abilities.

Rligon: Terrific operation. The teams on the boats and the boats themselves were great. Lots of location briefings, and support for everyone from students to experts. The shop team was also top notch. My Galileo computer strap broke, they helped me mount my spare gauges AND went to another shop to pick up a new strap, which was waiting for me when we returned to shore!

Tycho: They are the best in Miami, the location is easy to found, the parking is free and in the middle between boat and office, very convenient for loading.the pier is beautiful view. their boat also new and pretty one. I'm not from local so I booked with three different dive shops to compare, obviously, this one gives me a more comfortable experience! The captain are professional and a charming lady the staffs are professional too and friendly I will definitely book with this shop next time for my entire trips. They did excellent job so I paid 30 bucks tips.

Justin Weinstein: Great dive operator with daily dive trips. All the staff are very friendly and caring. The captains take feedback from the guests on board to determine the "captain's" choice second dive location. They are very flexible with their training and will help to make a schedule that works for you.

N7Wildcat: This is the first dive shop my partner and I have used outside of the Keys and they were amazing. Boarding was a little crazy but after that it was smooth operating throughout the rest of the trip. Three tank dive, to two wrecks and a reef was a lot of fun and the crew was amazing. Out of all of the operations we have gone through this is by far one of the best. We will definitely use them again when we are up in Miami. Thanks for an awesome trip!

Vlad Avril: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueThis was my first time diving in saltwater and currents stronger than freshwater. I made a lot of mistakes on my part, but the crew is amazing and provided me with a lot of information on how to improve my skillset. I'm looking forward to the next dive with this group of amazing dive masters.

Yanna Horsch: I recently got my advanced open water, and dragged my husband along to do his open water dive certification. I absolutely had to leave a review because Shaun was a phenomenal instructor. He went above and beyond to make sure all of his students were well taken care of, and was super educational. I got way more out of the class than I ever expected to. I came in wanting to be an advanced diver, and he made sure that I left as one. He was instrumental in making sure that with communication between dive shops, my husband and I were taken care of with shuttles between South Beach Divers in Miami to key Biscayne to ensure that we could catch the dive boats and attend class. It’s clear that the shop really cares about it students. And that we get absolutely every ounce out of the class. There’s also a dive master who helped with my class, Elana, she was phenomenal as well. I really improved my buoyancy because of her! She definitely exemplified that everyone at the shop is there to see you improve as a diver and have a great time even if they’re not your primary instructor. I’m so glad that I went with the shop to get my certification they took great care of me and my husband and pushed us to become better divers. And special shout out to Shaun, thanks again for a phenomenal experience. Can’t wait to come back! Wish I didn’t live so far away!

Steve: Great staff, great atmosphere, all around excellent. We took our open water certification classes here and could not of asked for a better experience. Our instructor, Alvaro, was amazing. All staff in the shop was top notch and the boat crews could not have done a better job. The best part about it was everyone was really cool and down to earth and helped me and my girlfriend through the entire process.

Jeremy Sherman: Positive: Professionalism, QualityGreat dive shop close to Miami, a must do stop if you're in the area. Entire crew were super friendly and professional ensuring the dives went smoothly and we saw as much as possible. All the gear was in excellent shape. Will definitely be diving with them again on future trips.
Response: It was a pleasure to have you out with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Ace Diving Miami: what do users think?


Alonddra McDowell: Definitely a great experience snorkeling with this crew. Ryan, Jesus and Cpt G. (Guillermo) were awesome, very informative, and professional. While also having a good time. We'll be going to get dive certified hopefully in the near future.
Response: Thank you Alondra for your review. We had a great time with you on our boat! We look forward in having you back to blow some bubbles in the near future!!

Mike Maynes: Carlos and his crew are friendly and professional. You can count on going to Miami and Key Biscayne’s best reefs and wrecks. There’s lots of wonderful sea creatures out there.
Response: Thank you Mike for your review! We had and amazing time with you on our boat and in the water! Look forward in seeing you back!

Jessica: Just finished my diving certification with Ace Diving and I couldn’t have asked for a better team. The instructors were all amazing - Freddy - great start to learning about diving and feeling comfortable, made things easy for us to remember and practice, Ryan - couldn’t have done it without him super encouraging and making us feel safe and comfortable to run through the drills and Carlos - we had on the last 2 dives and is crazy knowledgeable and experienced! Truthfully, everyone was fantastic and I highly recommend them. I’ll definitely be diving with them in the near future and getting other certifications.
Response: Perfect giant stride Jessica! Thank you for your review! The array of instructors that you had has given you a variety of perspectives about diving! We enjoy teaching and sharing knowledge with tips and tricks that we are sure you will use in the very near future!! Thank you for coming out and experiencing the underwater world! Until next time, keep blowing bubbles!!

F. Scott Novak: Awesome crew, great dive locations. Guillermo was a great dive guide. Honestly I wish we had more time to dive with them. Next time we come back, we definitely will. And I'll recommend them to anyone in the meantime.
Response: Frank thank you for your testimonial! We enjoyed having you and your family aboard our vessel!! We look forward in having you, your son and soon your other son and wife blowing bubbles on a new adventure underwater in Miami!

David El-Kahwaji: Amazing experience. Clean newer boat. Chill and very helpful crew. Mr.G and Ryan were absolute gems at answering questions and guiding. Got to visit two very cool sites for snorkeling and free diving. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend to anyone and can't wait to go again myself. Reason for the 4 star is the tour was advertised as a 4 hour trip, but it was barely 3 hours. We left 25 minutes late because we're waiting on a group of people and got back 30 minutes early for some reason. Easy fix for future trips.
Response: Thank you David for your testimony. We waited for the group of 5 passengers as they called and were very close to the Marina. If it was you, we would do the same, as you are on vacation and we try to accommodate to everyone! Sometimes the trip is a little short because all divers and snorkelers are done with the water experience, just like today, however we take your suggestion as and easy fix for future trips. Cheers!!

Josh Dykes: Me and my fiance had the most amazing time getting our open water diver certification with Ace Diving. Carlos the owner of the company is a true professional and very knowledgeable and made us feel very safe. If you want to be in good hands and actually learn all the skills needed to feel confident with yourself and your diving abilitys then this is the Diving company you want to go with in Miami no doubt. If your trying to figure out who you are going to dive with in Miami....just stop already and choose ACE DIVING!!!! You will not be disappointed!!!!
Response: Thank you Josh for your review! We at Ace Diving give 110%! Our passion is diving and providing an amazing experience to all of our customers! We had incredible dives that opened a new window to your world! Our unexplored oceans await you and your fiancé for a new adventure! Keep it up! All the best from all of us at Ace!

Aviva Movsas: We had such a great time with Ace Diving this week! Carlos and Jesus are patient, funny, and made the day of diving an all around fun experience! They made everyone feel comfortable both above and below water. They pointed out cool fish for us to see and they were always there to help underwater if we were accidentally drifting too high/too low, or for anything else we needed. They were always checking in on us to make sure we were doing well. Highly recommend!
Response: Aviva it was our pleasure having you both aboard Ace Diving’s E-ZEN-TIAL to go scuba diving! We enjoyed guiding you beneath the waves and and showing you the wonders that the ocean has to offer! Thank you for choosing us to be your dive operator in Miami! We look forward in seeing you again!!

Krishan Thakker: Carlos and his ACE Diving team are simply awesome. They are extremely professional, responsive, excellent value for money, and helpful and patient for divers of any level. I have dived with many schools and shops across the world and this group is by far one of the top in terms of collegiality, resourcefulness, and above all safety. The captains and staff are proficiently trained and well versed in everything scuba or snorkel and boating related. I had some dives arranged with them (4 total now) in addition to taking the Enriched NO2 course. Suffice to say, my wife also did discover scuba with them and really enjoyed the experience. We saw coral reef at rainbow reef in addition to Neptune memorial, and will be diving ship wrecks in future. Highly recommend them for any new or experience dive; they will be sure to have what you are looking for in the Miami area!
Response: Thank you Krishan for your review! We have enjoyed your company on our boat every time you have been on it! Not only you’ve completed your Enriched Air course, but you have been able to enjoy the many dive locations that Miami has to offer, and we are sure you will enjoy the many wrecks and other sunken treasures we have in the area! Look forward in having you back!! Cheers!!

Max Contador: Me and my sister got our open-water certification with Ace Diving. The team was awesome and made us feel very comfortable with the whole experience. They gave us a breakdown of how everything was gonna go and that’s exactly what we did. They were fun about it and made sure to teach us everything we needed to know. It was a lot of fun and I’m excited for future dives. I completely recommend them for getting your certifications and just going out for dives!
Response: Max thank you for your testimony! Having you as a student was awesome, the entire Ace team has fun under the sun with you at sea!! Living in Miami and being certified as a PADI Open Water Diver, gives you always an excuse to go out diving with friends! We look forward in having you back to create new memories!!

Xiaming Jin: Amazing instructors!! Got my PADI ow in 3 days and had lots of fun. Big shout out to Carlos and everyone from Ace Diving ❤️
Response: Xiaming and Daniel, you are both incredible divers! Now that you are PADI Open Water certified it’s time to start the adventure! Keep making bubbles and leaving memories! All the best to both of you from the Ace Team!

Snorkeling in Miami: what do users think?


Jasmine Joy: It was so much fun! I have aqua phobia but the crew was really nice and comforting! We had a lot of in the water even if I wasn’t snorkeling 🤓 the crew and all the people on the boat was really cool and friendly!!

The Cabreras: Great prices! Great experience. Alex and the capital were really helpful and really friendly.Our kids were really happy with the trip and with the experience.

Jenni Pierce: The people were nice and the boat ride to the site was good. The site they took us to snorkel was awful saw like 3 different fish and barely saw them. I've snorkeled many times this was the worst when it came to the site.

Jamie Jackson: Lowww quality food..... Boneless wings not fulling wet; egg rolls had some type of gell.... 🔴🔴🔴This past year has taught me cooking IS BEST !!

William Anspach: Positive: Professionalism, ResponsivenessUnfortunately, we had to cancel our trip due to weather but they were very accommodating and refunded the full cost without hesitation.We’ll try again next trip to Miami

Rana K: I made an online reservation for Snorkeling on Dec 31 2018. But it was cancelled because of what they said was bad weather conditions. As per terms of agreement they were supposed to refund the booking amount of $84.80. I mailed them couple of times requesting for refund. No response at all. Not cool. Finally after 2 weeks called them directly and spoke to Joe. He was understanding and processed the refund within the hour. The rating is for the phone customer service. They still need to work on online customer service. Will try them again on my next trip to Miami.
Response: Thank you Rana and so sorry to hear about your experience we will try to be more efficient next time

Michael Henne: They were honest, told me the water was too choppy and there was no visibility, and suggested we try again later in the week.

Gary Lee Stinnett: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueGreat staff had an excellent experience

Brenda Martinez: Awesome experience

Tyler Everson: Had a great time with the kids.

Landon Cloud: These guys are phenomenal! Can't wait to book another trip.

Ellie Lindelow: This was my first live aboard boating experience and I had a fantastic time.
Response: Thanks so much Ellie! We're so glad you had a good time and we hope to see you again soon :)

Deborah Fitzpatrick: This past October was my fourth trip on Juliet and it was the 3rd trip for my wife. This is our go to place to dive! Between her and I, we’ve been on Juliet from Miami to the Bahamas twice, once to St. Croix and once to Puerto Rico. So we’ve spent about a month total on the ship. We have also already booked a two week reposition trip for March of 2020. After spending a total of four weeks on this ship, I feel that I have a good understanding and have encounter all different people and experiences. Hands down, diving with the Juliet crew is like diving with friends and family. Safety is most important and then everything else after that is fun and enjoyment! Excellent dive site and dive briefings. A caring and attentive crew who always makes sure that you are taken care of and well fed. Very comfortable accommodations and you never feel overcrowded! Just hanging with the crew and other passengers and sharing stories, is truly an outstanding part of being on Juliet. I have been diving since 1986 and Juliet is by far the best dive operation that I have ever encounter! Liza, Kat, & Nate... Don’t change a thing! You truly offer an incredible experience BF&DF
Response: Thanks Deb and Bill. It's always great to have you both on board. Until the next one!

Ken Barrick: I'd sail aboard the Juliet everyday if I could... unfortunately life gets in the way. The entire crew has been amazing during my times aboard. I've done the Bahamas and Mona Island itineraries and neither disappointed. Great crew, great food, smooth sailing and an all around good time. A shot from the water - Mona Island.
Response: We'd have you on board as much as you can stand it, Ken. Until next time!

Elina Lindelow: Thank you to all the crew! This was my first live aboard experience.

Kimela Kluthe: My husband and I have gone on two dive trips with the Juliet and loved every minute of both! Fabulous crew and boat. The crew make you feel like family and the boat is very comfortable (good food too!). Dive sites are awesome. We look forward to a third trip with the Juliet in our future! <3

Jennifer Hunter: I’ve been diving for years now, and I look back at my time on the Juliet with great respect and wonderful memories. The crew is amazing. Liza is an excellent captain. The food was delicious. The dive expertise was impressive. Our room was comfortable and well appointed. The crossing the first day from Miami to the Bahamas was a little rough. I got sick, but Liza took great care of me. Doing ever thing she could to make me comfortable. You can’t blame a crew for rough waters. But you can respect a crew for caring for its passengers. We will definitely return.

Cynthia George: Just got off our second tour on the Juliet and it will not be our last. The boat is absolutely precious, well made, well laid out and just a diver's dream. The staff was well trained, attentive and just a pleasure to be around. Food was delicious and plentiful. The dive master was more than capable of handling any gear issues and did a great job on the briefings. We cannot wait to book our next stay aboard the Juliet!
Response: Thank you so much Cynthia! Miss you already

daniel ogilvie: I've been on the Juliet four times in the last three years with two different crews including Kat as one of the Captains. I highly recommend this live aboard. The crews are the friendliest, knowledgeable, know their stuff and tailor make the week for passengers based on guests abilities and what they want to see. I have been on other live aboard and to dive resorts that don't even come close too the hospitality of what the Juliet staff has to offer. Anyone who gives anything less than 4-5 stars has obviously never been on board and never spent time with the crews.
Response: Thanks, Dan! Hope to see you again soon!

Patricia Huff: I just left the wonderful Juliet and her amazing crew. My heart and mind hold lovely memories of the beautiful dives we shared, the extraordinary customers service, attention, care and delicious meals. The crew is dedicated to insuring the guests experience outstanding dives under the safest conditions possible. Nate guided the graceful and comfortable Juliet up and down the reefs to find us the very best conditions for the safest diving on the most beautiful reefs. Liza is a "servant leader", making life at sea and our dive holiday the most enriching experience for all of us and instilling these values in her crew. This diving live aboard is a must do for all divers!!!
Response: Hi Patricia, it was a pleasure having you on board, and thank you so much for the kind and thoughtful review. We are all so glad we were able to provide you with such a memorable experience. We all hope to see you on board again soon!

Luxy Diver | Scuba, Snuba, Snorkel & Cruise on Luxury Yachts in Miami Beach: what do users think?


Lisa Vito: Last week I had my birthday trip with my friend on Capt.Alex's Luxy diver.It was my best scuba diving experience ever.Alex was very friendly and always tried to make my birthday memorable and yes he did it.I am here to share my best memory of my whole past life. If anyone want to enjoy scuba,snuba, without hesitation text or call Alex.

Ken Williams: Capt.Alex and team has always been highly professional, accommodating and easy to work with to plan and execute our trips. Additionally, their commitment to safety and utilizing experienced crew members puts us at ease to know every trip we book is not only enjoyable but very safe. Couldn't recommend them more!

Marshall Taylor: Luxy Diver is absolutely wonderful. Like diving with Family. I trusted their team to do my daughter's Birthday celebration and they were superb. Extremely professional, knowledgeable, and great fun to be with. I highly recommend seeking out Luxy Diver for all of your diving needs.

oman Alaska: We booked our cruise trip last minute on the day we flew back. We wanted to end our trip with such a special experience. It was our firat time on scuba diving. Overall, it was relaxing. Staff was friendly, they took our family pics and also gave us some history ibMiami. Luxy diver is recommended for all ages of people.

William Graybill: Great experience for my second ever dive. Our Dive Master was Alex who i would recommend very highly. Very experienced, calm and trusting. Extensive knowledge of diving, also great taste in music for the drive up to Key Largo and good knowledge of Miami made the drive there and back very enjoyable, too. Would definitely dive again with them in the near future.

milan Amela: Went snorkeling on their trip from Miami and it was amazing. The staff were super friendly & attentive and brought us out to two locations on Molasses Reef. Saw multiple barracudas, an angel shark, filefish, parrotfish, angelfish, 3 jacks, and a bunch of other fish. Highly recommend Luxy Diver.

Pedro Mayfield: Absolutely hands down the most amazing experience of my life. It was so easy from the booking to the trip. Very good communication. I accidentally booked the wrong day.. they immediately fixed it Captain Alex and his crew made sure we had the time of our lives. I can't wait to book through these guys again. We were having some rough experiences with Miami locals as far being rude and being treated awful.... These guys changed our while view. I can't thank all of the staff and crew enough.

Lorena Caballero: Great dive center and excellent staff! Dive master Alex was knowledgeable and caring. It is obvious that they all really enjoy diving, the company, and their job. I would highly recommend them for training or just going out for a recreational dive trip.

Leo Lopez: I love this place. Service is great, yesterday we got back really late so I called them. and they waited for us to re-fill for day 2 of mini- lobster season. Capt.Alex is a sweetheart makes you feel like a friend instead of a customer.

Elizabeth Hill: Luxy Diver is great, highly recommend. We booked a dive trip with them down to the reefs in Miami Beach and had a blast. Capt Alex and The staff were all very pleasant and very helpful. They let us borrow a clip we needed for then handle of our dive camera and when I forgot to take my dive knife off of my rented BCD they were nice enough to work with me to get it sent to my home. We will absolutely be booking through them next time we're in Miami!

She went when she was 7 years old and again when she was 11 years old and loved it both times. The camp teaches sportsmanship, confidence and persistence. It is a great program and camp!

Scuba Diving In Miami - Squalo Divers: what do users think?


Laura Roberts: I am so happy I found this place to become certified as a diver. Without a doubt this has been one of the best experiences of my life. They are so professional and helpful. Sebastian and Alejandro are incredible people. They both explain so well, they have a lot of patience, it shows that they love what they do. Scualo Divers exceeded my expectations 🙏❤️ Thank you with all my heart for your services.

Ray Wang: 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” 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.

Emilia Silverberg: We had such a wonderful time with Squalo! Our refresher course was perfect, and the dive itself was miraculous.

Ahmed Zaghloul: Great diving center and excellent instructors.Thank you all.

Blake: I really hate to leave a bad review, but I wouldn’t feel right otherwise: I paid an extra $110 for the dive guide, which on the website lists would only be with 1 or 2 other people. This is important for divers like myself, that just got their open water certification and need a little extra guidance so they don’t ruin a weekend trip they took just for this. I was initially put in a group with 6 other people, I believe getting their open water certification in a class, and one guide. The guide was pulled so thin I could hardly get a question in before he had to jet off to assist someone else. He only had time to provide me with the equipment I was missing (Squalo forgot, I suppose) and then it was time to dive. I predictably didn’t feel prepared and had to get out of the water - ruining the trip. Everyone on the boat, guides included, were extremely nice. They really did try to make things work. They even encouraged me to get back in the water a second time, but I wasn’t comfortable still being out with a group of 4. I am going to leave them a separate 5 star review because they were just incredible. They were simply pulled too thin because Squalo overscheduled. If you charge someone $110 for the comfort of a more intimate dive experience and don’t provide it, you have not only lied and stolen from your customer - you have potentially ruined their vacation. That is what Squalo did. Edit: I see that Squalo's response is just to blatantly lie about the size of the group they put me in and what was being offered on their website. What a great business that everyone should certainly consider when trusting someone with the outcome of their vacation and their lives.
Response: Dear Blake, Thank you for choosing Squalo Divers for your trip and for sharing your thoughts. We appreciate you pointing out the areas where extra effort on our part is needed an we are sorry to read that your experience with us was not the best and please accept our apologies for any misunderstanding or not meeting with your customer service expectations. Every time we make a booking for a dive trip we always gather information regarding all participants. In your particular case your girlfriend expressed that you needed to rent equipment, that you were a newly certified diver and that you have not dived in the past six months. Taking all of this into account we recommended an entry level dive trip and a group guide. Your girlfriend agreed to our recommendations. We have two choices for dive guides, private guide (with a price of $200) and group guide (with a price of $110). The private guide like the name implies means one guide per diver. The group guide on the other hand is one guide for several divers. We are a little confused as to why you would express that you hired a group guide for one or two divers when the name clearly implies that you would be part of a group. On the day of your trip there were three groups of divers from Squalo Divers on the boat. Group one consisted of one instructor and four divers. Group two consisted of one instructor and three divers. Group three consisted of two solo divers. You were part of group two, sharing one instructor with only 2 more persons, not with a bigger group. All the divers were renting equipment from Squalo Divers and our staff always works as a team so maybe what you perceived as a bigger group was actually three small groups sharing a boat? Regarding your rental equipment. Everything that your girlfriend requested was packed and labeled with your name. On the day of your trip you expressed that you had a rough morning start and that you forgot your fins. We sent two pairs of extra fins with our instructors. On the boat you requested the fins from your guide and he provided you with said fins. To all our past, present and future divers, your feedback is of utmost value to us as it helps us improve. It is very helpful to receive this feedback as soon as the service occurs so we can review the current situation and take all the necessary actions to make sure we give all our customers the best experience possible. We appreciate your business and we would welcome an opportunity to earn your highest marks, that’s why we would like to offer you a pool scuba review for free to help you become a better diver and make up for any inconvenience.

Emily Linett: I'll start by saying that all the staff on the boat were super friendly. However, it turns out they were actually a part of Ace Diving and not Squalo, so I'm not sure how they are related. We chose Squalo because we wanted to go to Neptune Memorial from Key Largo, but the day before the trip they changed our departure location to Miami. Then the morning of the trip they said the water was too choppy to snorkel but that we could dive instead. We decided to dive, but half the boat got sick and it was not a very pleasant experience. My friend and I are certified divers, but the other 6 divers were on their checkout dive. During the dive, we had to follow one of the guides with the group of checkout divers, which hindered our ability to see as much. We were told to surface when I still had 1600 PSI left, so my dive was definitely cut short to accommodate the others. Additionally, the guide made us stop and gather together for pictures, which wasn't how I wanted to spend my time underwater. I definitely won't be diving with them again.
Response: Dear Emily, Thank you for choosing Squalo Divers for your trip and for sharing your thoughts. We appreciate you pointing out the areas where extra effort on our part is needed an we are sorry to read that your experience with us was not the best and please accept our apologies for any misunderstanding or not meeting with your customer service expectations. Originally the snorkel/dive trip was planned to depart from Key Biscayne to Neptune Memorial Reef located in Miami. Due to the boat in Key Biscayne changing their schedule to a deeper site not suitable for snorkelers we switched locations. It was never planned to depart from Key Largo. We informed you and your friends about this modification and you all agreed to the new plan. On the day of your trip and in order to keep you safe, we contacted you and your friends to cancel your snorkel trip due to rough ocean conditions. As you were also divers, you and your friends suggested that we could change the plan from snorkel to diving so we all accepted to take the diving trip from Downtown Miami. Unfortunately, the water was very choppy and that’s something that we can’t control. If some other participants got seasick on the boat it is most likely because of the water conditions. Our instructor indicated to you and your friend that you could follow them underwater, if you wanted to. Please note that your booking did not include a dive guide but wanted to give you a fun and safe dive. To us it is all about bringing everyone safely back on board as well as having fun. We completed two safe and fun 45 minutes dives. We apologize if you didn’t like the instructor taking an underwater picture. Except from the captain and deckhand, all the staff present on the boat are part of Squalo Divers. To all our past, present and future divers, your feedback is of utmost value to us as it helps us improve. It is very helpful to receive this feedback as soon as the service occurs so we can review the current situation and take all the necessary actions to make sure we give all our customers the best experience possible. We appreciate your business and we would welcome an opportunity to earn your highest marks.

Dallas Montella: They were so great at setting up all of my dives! Schedules had to be rearranged, but they made sure that communication was open and they were so quick to help make sure I made it to my dives. The guides were incredible and really knowledgeable. Even through this pandemic they made my vacation very memorable. I will definitely be diving with them when I come to Florida again.

Katherine De Mello: Did my open water and advance with them!

Steve Biggerstaff: I booked 6 dives with the team at Squalo Divers and having done four out of the six I have to say my experience so far has been exceptional. Very good communication through booking and while in Miami. The guide who has been with me, Alejandro, is exceptional. Very good attention to detail and safety, he is making the dives fun and is full of local knowledge. I won’t hesitate to dive with them again when I am back in Miami and I certainly would hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to dive while here.

Benjamin Faris: Raymond is a top notch IDC Staff instructor working for Squallo Divers, and brought me in to get some training done, several specialty certifications and Rescue diver - Open water scuba instructor. I am more than impressed at the level of commitment and mentorship he has put in to training me to the professional level. Looking forward to a week off from work and getting as many dives in as possible this upcoming week with him and my buddies. Its rare to find instructors like this guy, but when you do they will make sure your the best diver you can possibly be. 🤙

Nautilus Spearfishing: what do users think?


Ivan Piccioni: I wanna start by saying that this is hands down the best experience I’ve ever had at a dive shop and I’ve been to many. I went in a couple weeks ago looking to build a custom gun and these guys had everything I needed. They were extremely friendly and weren’t just trying to sell me something, they offered quality service and honest opinions about which route to go with my build. They had an answer for pretty much every question I had and the most affordable prices I’ve seen yet. I couldn’t happier with the way the gun turned out and the customer service Andrew and JC provided. 10/10

Sean Algaze: I went to Nautilus Spearfishing because I was looking for a shop that actually had great freedivers and Spearfisherman I could learn from. From the reviews it looked like I might of found my place. When I went in there it had everything you could possible need, but meeting the staff is what I was really looking forward to doing. My philosophy when going into any pro shop is "its not just the equipment in the shop, but the people that run it" I ended up learning way more then I anticipated from Andrew and had an incredible eye opening conversation with him, then to learn by the end he was the owner of the shop! He never tried to sell me just keep me safe which is exactly what I was hoping for. I could not recommend this shop enough.

Brian Terrinoni: There are a few good dive shops in South Florida, and this one one of them... if not the best! The selection of inventory is great, having everything a beginner would need to everything a seasoned spearo would want. Andrew and the guys are super knowledgeable / friendly, and the customer service they offer is outstanding. They will have my business for years to come! oh yeah... they're also building me a custom gun, who else does that around here? GO CHECK THEM OUT!

Pavel Cahn: Went there to buy a new speargun and received great advice. Bought myself the speargun and a few days later caught a huge barracuda thanks to their adviceThank guys !

Casey D: Great, friendly shop. They have everything and give honest advice.

Patrick Poitras: Nautilus spearfishing provides excellent customer service at competitive prices. They are willing to help you find the best product for your needs, in addition to probably having a YouTube video made by Andrew himself to review that product so you know exactly what your getting. I recommend them to anyone looking for a smooth shopping experience, especially in the trying times of COVID 19.

MATTHEW NOVAKOVICH: After some subpar experiences at other online spearfishing stores, I found Nautilus. Andrew immediately contacted me after I placed my order to ensure I got the product I wanted, when I wanted. I highly recommend them to anyone and will be returning for all my spearfishing needs

Robbie Carroll: I did the free diving level 1 class with Andrew. He is an excellent instructor. Oscar was great as well. I can't wait until I have enough money to sign up for level 2 so I can hit 120ft. Best shop around and best service for spear fishers in the Miami area.

Patrick Keane: I just moved to Miami and stopped in to Nautilus Spearfishing and the guys were incredibly helpful. Set me up with a new gun and some great advice. I highly recommend them! I'll be back!

Ame V: Great customer service! Loved the dog also...

Underwater Unlimited: what do users think?


N B: Unfortunately, it’s time for me to bid my Cressi mask adieu. I dropped by Underwater Unlimited to find a replacement before I head out on a trip. I was pleasantly surprised by the customer service. I was given helpful advice regarding how to choose the best mask fit for me, which led me to the Aqualung Look in black. In addition, I was given helpful advice regarding wetsuits, fins, and hooded vests. I felt the team genuinely wanted to help me find the right items for me. I unintentionally stayed 10 minutes or so after closing finalizing, yet I wasn’t rushed or guilted. Thank you very much for being courteous and helpful!

Jennifer Lynde: Took two sets of regs and BCDs in for annual servicing. Regs were messed up free following at depth. One reg was fixed after taking it back to the shop. Second reg wouldn't stop flowing at 50 ft around the divers mouth. After taking it back the first time, still not fixed. It didn't free flow in the water tank at the shop, but wouldn't stop flowing at 50 ft again around divers mouth. Never had this problem after servicing regs at a different shop in Ohio three times before. Regs are Aqualung Legends. Won't be returning to UU for service again.

Nick Gaouette: I can’t express how helpful and pleasant the staff at Underwater Unlimited was throughout my Open Water Certification. As a referral diver, I came in with a certain amount of paperwork and other administrative hurdles that had to be overcome. They handled it quickly and professionally, and worked with me to make sure I was prepared in every sense of the word for the dives. There was never a moment that I questioned if I was in good hands or if the staff was qualified; their knowledge and passion for the sport were very reassuring as a new diver. Underwater Unlimited made my first trip to Florida one that I won’t soon forget. Because of my time with them, I am a safer and more confident diver. I highly recommend them and their services.
Response: Hi Nick! Thank you so much, we can't wait to see you next time blowing bubbles !!

TheOneFishman: I just finished my Open Water certification and could not be happier with the experience. Charlie, Javi, and Alana are some of the funniest and most genuine people you will ever meet. They truly do love instructing new students and make learning about SCUBA exciting. UU also knows all of the great dive spots down here, and in the world, as Charlie has been on over 8,000 dives, which makes me feel honored to be taught by him and his group. I would recommend this shop to anyone looking for painless SCUBA training sessions, great prices on gear/rentals, or people who just want some great company while on dives.
Response: Thank you so much Ben for the review! We are so glad you had a great experience. See you out on the water soon!

Jasmine Acosta: I could not be happier that I received my certification to be an open water diver with Javi from UU. His endless patience, calm and tremendous experience is what any novice diver needs in order to surmount the fear of the unknown. Him and the UU team are top notch and I am grateful for all I learned with them. Javi I did my honeymoon dive in Anguilla today and its all thanks to you!!!! Would 1000% recommend for anyone that wants to learn to scuba the right way :)

Carly Misztal: Great place to get open water scuba certified! Had more anxiety than anticipated in the water but the course is very thorough (well worth the money) and the instructors help you through it and make you comfortable- thanks Javi!! I can’t wait for my next dive!

Roger Saldana: Great experience. These guys know their stuff. Did a group class and worked mostly with Javi. This guy breathes and eats scuba. He really prepared us for a safe and long experience as scuba divers.

Kristin Butler: I completed my Open Water certification with Underwater Unlimited last spring. Charlie, Javi, and Alana made me feel comfortable, confident, knowledgeable, and excited about diving! I had such an amazing experience that I came back a few months later to complete my Advanced Open Water certification with them. They have the best dive gear in South Florida by far! Highly recommend!

Harry Blustein IV: Underwater Unlimited’s staff and facilities deliver elite SCUBA diving services in every facet of the sport. Whether I am learning from the best professionals in the industry, being fit for gear that will ensure my safety underwater, or on a dive lead by one of their Dive Instructor, I feel that I’m being lead by the best in the industry. Not to mention the staff makes you feel like family whenever you step through the door. Look no further for the best SCUBA shop!

Madeleine Hill: Instructors were very informed, nice, funny, and great teachers! I loved learning about all the opportunities I was opening up in my life with my scuba certification. I'm so excited to go traveling and not only get to explore the land but also the water. I highly recommend learning how to dive with Underwater Unlimited!

MIAMI SCUBA DIVER | Scuba, Snuba, Snorkeling & Cruising on Luxury Private Yachts in Miami Beach.: what do users think?


Kristopher Santamaria: Out of this world Dive an Neptune reef memorial! It's an under water artificial reef must see destination in Miami Beach.For a private experience go with Capt.Alex and his Atlantis Yacht.Check out these epic photos!

William Nalley: Absolutely hands down the most amazing experience of my life. It was so easy from the booking to the trip. Very good communication. I accidentally booked the wrong day.. they immediately fixed it Captain Alex and his crew made sure we had the time of our lives. I can't wait to book through these guys again. We were having some rough experiences with Miami locals as far being rude and being treated awful.... These guys changed our while view. I can't thank all of the staff and crew enough.

Donna Lambert: Capt Alex is very knowledgeable person about Miami beach.We had all the fun because of him.He was a good instructor.Definitely come again.

Joanna Carolina: If I could give ten stars I would!! Captain Alex made us feel so welcome aboard the Atlantis. We had a simply magical day filled with Snuba/Scuba, visiting various islands, and cruising around seeing the majestic skyline in Miami! My husband had never been diving before and I am certified so the Snuba option was wonderful for his first time, he now wants to get certified too! I absolutely LOVED the fact that we were the only two guests on the boat, it was so peaceful and gave us a chance to bond (away from the kids). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Miami Scuba Diver- whether for cruisin or diving you will not be disappointed! We intend on chartering again with Captain Alex when we come back to Miami to show our friends and family a great time.

Arron Campbell: Captain Alex and his crew were amazing! This was my second attempt at diving, and a successful one due to the crew. My first dive experience I only made it 3-5 feet, this time I made it down to the bottom and stayed under for over an hour. The instructors were patient and guided me until I was comfortable on my own. Great experience, I will use Captain Alex again next time I’m in Miami.

Cheryl Grieve: Another outstanding day to, on, in, and under the water courtesy of MIAMI SCUBA DIVER (and back!). Capt Alex who know how to ensure fun and safety always. Today - a great day to dive with MIAMI SCUBA DIVER.

Lorena Caballero: I just did the discover scuba and it was amazing!!! We had Lucky to have Capt.Alex as our guide and we're so glad we did. He took everything very slow for me (I was terrified during the first dive!) and he made us both feel comfortable and kept us extremely safe as we experienced a beautiful reef and saw some amazing underground life!!! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I'd recommend for everyone! And make sure to ask for Alex as your guide!!!

Dill Elizer: Amazing time chartering the 45 foot yacht for my girlfriend’s birthday! The captain and crew were very accommodating and thought of everything! The accommodations were amazing, the ride was smooth and the boat was clean and nice with 2 staterooms and a huge kitchen. The bridge atop the boat served as a perfect place for tanning and we even got to jump off the bridge into the water! Cliff jumping in miami beach, it can happen here! Enjoyed staying at the sand bar in marine stadium and partying !
Response: Diana and Courtney it was a great pleasure having you aboard and happy birthday! 🎊 thank you for the compliments and looking forward to seeing you again for another fantastic yachting experience!

Harriet Dayton: Great experience lots of fun definitely recommend for a personal experience and a great yacht.

Olivia Butler: I had a perfect day on the water with Miami Scuba Diver. Capt Alex The instructor was amazing and took us to a great spot to swim and lounge. I would definitely book with them again!
