Did the exploratory dives with Southpoint on Friday 2/17 and can't say enough nice things about the office, our instructor and the Captain and First Mate. Mike from Charleston was super patient and knowledgeable and kept a really positive vibe going the whole day. I felt safe with him and we had a blast, despite lower visibility and not seeing...

I enjoyed my dives with Southpoint, but I was a bit dismayed when I found out that I was sharing the guide I booked with other people. This was new to me, since everywhere else I've travelled you are automatically in a guided group at no extra charge, so I assumed if I was paying extra that the guide was... More

My fiance and I took a two tank charter to the Vandenberg. We were with another couple, and we had an absolute great experience. From the time we signed in at the dive shop, to loading gear on the boat, to our dive briefing, to our actual dives nothing could have been better. Great attention to detail, very professional, and... More

My boyfriend and I made a day trip to Key West. Neither of us had been, and decided we wanted to try diving. I had never used any of the equipment, so we opted for the full day tour. We started the day in shallow water and our instructor did an awesome job of explaining how everything worked and what... More

I had an excellent dive with Emily at Southpoint Divers. The boat was well equipped, the staff friendly, with the right amount of balance between fun and safety.

Loved my experience with these guys. I had such a great time and although traveling alone, I never felt lonely with how hospitable every one was. Definitely plan on coming back down to get some specialty certifications with them and would recommend them to anyone planning on diving Key West- novice and advanced divers alike!

These guys are nice but I felt that things were done chaotically on the boat. From my little experience diving at key West; it does not have a lot to offer. If you want to dive at the keys or Florida in general then key largo is the best choice a diver can make. Rainbow divers at key largo are... More

Hi there and thank you for taking a minute to write a review! I'd love to hear more about how you felt the trip was chaotic - was the boat full that day? were there a lot of students on board? We do have a lot of safety measures in place but they shouldn't feel chaotic to our guests. Shoot... More

1 year ago I did an introductory dive with Scott. I was inspired to get certified after that dive. 1 year later with a freshly minted advanced and nitrox cert, I returned to dive the Vandenberg. As luck would have it, I was again paired with Scott. He did a great job of navigating the shipwreck. I had a wonderful... More
