We dove with SouthPoint twice- once on reefs, and the second time on the Vandenburg. My wife did not have her Advanced Open Water cert, but we were assigned a dedicated guide who made the Vandenburg dives exceptional. I highly recommend diving with SouthPoint if you are in Key West and want a top notch experience. The boat is well... More

Weather was not cooperating with 20 kt easterly winds for the afternoon dive that's billed as a shallow water/snorkel dive. We had both in our group and the dive shop indicated we'd dive on the Gulf side and that made sense. Got to the boat and the skipper decided it would be OK at Sand Key. Was OK for me... More

We hate to hear that your visit was during some weather. (Oh how we wish we had some control over that!) We do our best by checking radars and talking to other boats to get you on the best spot for the day but Mother Nature certainly has her own set of rules. This day we did plan on going... More

Southpoint are a very professional dive shop. The boat & captain were excellent and we had 2 small groups dive the Vandenberg. Our dive masters were great spending plenty of time explaining the dive to us and the dive itself was just amazing with plenty of dive throughs a to explore & perfect visibility.

We took the one day course and dove on the reef the same day. Dave gave our lesson in the morning. He took his time teaching and really was knowledgeable. Zack took us down on our first dive. After some trepidation, he made it to the bottom. It was absolutely beautiful! We are planning on getting our full certification and... More

Experience of a lifetime! We did the pool session in the morning and then two dives in the afternoon. I hit the water and panicked for the first dive and got out. Zach encouraged me to try again on the second dive and took extra time with me and before I knew it I was scuba diving!!! I am so... More

This is my 5th year diving with Southpoint Divers. It is the only dive shop in Key West that I would consider using. Each member of the staff, from the dive shop to the boat, works hard to ensure that everyone gets friendly and efficient service. If you come to Key West to dive, whether it be the shipwrecks or...

I dove with Southpoint while in KW last week and had a great time with these good folks. On the reef dives they pared me up with another single and we had 2 nice long dives on a shallow reef ~30 min from port. The crew gave us a very good briefing on the layout of the reef and where... More
