Friends and I spent three days diving with PDC last weekend. We had a great time and PDC was very accommodating despite some challenging seas because we flew down to Pompano specifically to complete a course. Capt.

Some challenging weather but the Captain and crew worked very hard to get the divers on the wreck and reefs. Very friendly and knowledgeable. They have a few boats and sort divers based upon their ability so you won't be diving a 20 foot reef is you are advance.

This seems to be one of the few dive operations that will send a dive master down with you for free. Mike, Thalia and Sarah were all great and we... More

My dive buddy and I have recently traveled back to Pompano. We had booked a boat trip through this shop in the past and enjoyed the service. Unfortunately, we were not able to dive off the boat due to the weather. It brings assurance that this shop puts safety ahead of making money. Tony (shop manager) was very helpful in... More

We came to dive but storms affected boat diving. They suggested we go up north to the bridge dive. It was wonderful!

The shop is friendly and informative. Love the diving off of Pompano Beach. The boat is clean and in good repair and crew knew what they were doing

These folks were simply great to take a trip with. Kudos to Jimmy and Edgar. They spent a lot of time explaining what we were doing, making sure everything was ready to go and helped whenever needed. I will definitely use them again.
