Our Boats

Meet the Fleet

South Florida Diving Headquarters has three excellent boats from which to choose.  Watch the ocean below on our glass bottom boats, or speed to your next dive adventure on our 34 ft. Crusader. We can accommodate large groups, without feeling too cramped.  If you're by yourself, no problem, we can always hook you up with a buddy on one of our daily dive trips. We have something for all ages & skill levels. "You can dive, snorkel or watch from above all on the same boat."

Top 5 Reasons to Choose Pompano Beach & Fort Lauderdale

  1. Biodiversity - South Florida reefs are teaming with tropical fish, the same species seen throughout the Caribbean. You may also see larger pelagic species that migrate and different times of the year.
  2. Dive Conditions - Because of the close proximity of the Gulf Stream, SE Florida reefs are bathed in warm clear water year around.
  3. Short Boat Rides - S. Florida's reef track begins less than a 1/4 mile offshore. You'll have made 2 dives before you could get to the keys!
  4. Wreck Diving Capitol - The Gold Coast claims over 100 shipwrecks in all depth ranges. Greater Ft. Lauderdale has the most active Artificial Reef Program.
  5. Drift Dives - Does the thought of lazily drifting along the reef with the current and surfacing when you are ready appeal to you?
