Miami Beach Scuba Diving & Snorkeling


Neptune Memorial ReefMiami Beach is often called America's Riviera: a cosmopolitan city whose residents are as diverse as it's vistors. Scuba diving and snorkeling in Miami Beach is no different. Miami is home to the Neptune Memorial Reef. Created to provide an extraordinary living resting place for the departed.

Many vistors prefer to take a short ride north to try  Scuba Diving and Snorkeling in Pompano Beach, because of it's close proximity to world class  reef and wreck dive sites.. Greater Ft. Lauderdale is also known as the "Wreck Capitol" of Florida.

Drift Diving in Miami Beach

Drift Diving, also nicknamed "Valet Diving" is extremely popular. South Florida's reef tract is linear and the warm Gulfstream current flows parallel to the shoreline creating perfect drift diving conditions. Unlike many dive destinations that make you swim out and back to the boat, in South Florida we simply drop you in with a flag and you drift until you are ready to surface, then we pick you up.

Advantages to Drift Diving

  • Less stressful
  • Explore more reef
  • See more marine life
  • More bottom time
  • More Freedom
