My 17-year old son and I (a little older) took a three day course out of the Key Biscayne location and absolutely loved it. We called with only a week’s notice and they created a semi-private class for us even though they were booked up (thanks Martina — muito obrigado). Jeff (our instructor) took over on the first morning and he was superb. He took us through all the proficiency and safety drills in the pool and had us feeling comfortable in about 2 hours. When we got to the open water he patiently helped me overcome my ear aches and ensured we took in the natural beauty even as we went through all our drills repeatedly. Many thanks Jeff. We’re already thinking of our next course with them.

I had the opportunity to dive with South Beach Divers and Divers Paradise over the last 5 days and absolutely loved every second of it. When deciding where and who to dive with I called every shop from here to West Palm Beach and had in depth conversations with each. John from South Beach Divers was more than accommodating and helped me plan my trip over the phone, answer all questions and concerns and was a great support! Once I got here, I did multiple AM and PM dives a day and got to visit some really beautiful dive sites loaded up with tropical fish, sting rays, moray eels, tons of angelfish and a lot more macro life than I haven’t seen anywhere else. The crew are top notch. Best I’ve had the opportunity to dive with. They have folks studying for PHDs or Masters programs in Marine Biology and Sciences and trained Military Rescue divers all busting their butt to make sure that everyone on their trips are SAFE and have an absolute blast. I was able to do a night dive which was a highlight of my new diving career as well as explore reefs, wrecks and the Neptune Memorial. Special thanks to John, Andrew, Sean, Ben, Alena, Jimmy and the rest of the folks I got to dive with. You are all amazing! To anyone looking around and considering who to dive with in the Miami area, choose this crew above anyone else. They set a standard for themselves far above the industry standard and that commitment to excellence in training and diving excursions makes for an exhilarating and safe diving experience for all, no matter your diving experience level. I’ll be back to dive with them again and am considering doing my rescue diver training with them next year. I got to see some of their instructors training other divers while I was with them and was blown away with the commitment to quality training (and not just going through the motions like I’ve had in the past). If you get a cert from this team, you are going to master that skill!

Had a fantastic experience with South Beach Dive Shop! They came highly recommended and did not disappoint. We rented equipment for a reasonable price, which was well maintained and great quality. I completed my PADI Open Water Certification with them. Their team was very friendly and laid back, but very professional and safe. We had a lot of fun, but the crew did an exceptional job ensuring safety checks were conducted and everyone was accounted for. My wife and I were able to dive together and they couldnt have been more accommodating. They have a van that takes you to the harbor, they offer refresher training if your cert is out of tolerance, and will help you in anyway they can. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Went on a two tank trip boat trip with them in Miami. The dives were ok but I was only able to use half of a tank on each dive due to the time restrictions put in place by the crew. 38 mins per tank was about all I got. I still had well over 1600 psi in my tank left on each dive. I suggest having different groups of divers on the boat so more experienced divers get their full dive in. I felt rushed the whole trip.

Visited here 2 days in a row to do 2 different dive experiences. I appreciated the flexibility of either leaving from the docks in Key Biscayne or getting a ride from the shop in South Beach. Crew was great and made sure we had a great experience.
