Thank you, Southpoint Divers, for a great afternoon on the water! I really appreciated the captain's care in selecting the best spots on the reef. The crew were professional and friendly. Excellent dive operators!

Can't say enough great things about this dive operation. Friendly staff, clean & organized boat. Imported fresh water & fruit supplied. They will always be my #1 choice! Do yourself a favor, book your trip with them.

The check-in was hectic (needlessly so). The boat is across the way at the dock. Had my own kit, except for weights and tank. Not sure why they insisted on a wetsuit -could've saved me lugging my 3mm. At 105-ft. On the Vandenberg, the water...More

Thanks for your review, Jeffrey! One point of clarification: we do have Rescue kits and equipment, more so than required even. We pride ourselves on being a safe operation. If you were, in fact, referring to reels used for more technical diving, we have those...More

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...More

My wife and I are about 70. We are both PADI open water certified. She is an open water swimmer competitive at about 10 miles. We have done a lot of dives, but more recently we have been ski instructors, etc. We haven't dived in about 10 years. What would you require for us to go diving?
