Vandenberg Wreck

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

I was wanting to do my Open Water Certification whilst in Key West and chose Southpoint Divers after reading the reviews that I'd read on Tripadvisor.

Southpoint Divers offered an exceptional experience which was the highlight of our vacation! For two scuba divers and one snorkeler, we were offered the opportunity to have all of us on the boat.
