EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR TRIP

Snorkeling

Our half-day snorkel trips costs $119.00 per person, which includes use of a mask, snorkel, fins and a snorkel vest. 

Trips are 3 1/2 hours. You will have plenty of time to snorkel on the shallow wrecks and reefs that lay right off Key Biscayne.

You will get to snorkel at two different locations on the one trip.

Children 8-15 are welcome when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children 16-18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian OR obtain written permission prior to the trip. Sorry, no children under 8 are allowed on any of the boats.

We offer snorkel trips everyday—except Tuesdays.

You must be able to swim to participate in snorkeling activities.

Passengers on the Diver’s Paradise Charter Boats While Pregnant 

Diver's Paradise is not in a position to allow expectant mothers on our charters. 

Our beautiful ocean is unpredictable. We would not advise placing yourself in that situation.  

Bumpy rides and big waves can harm you and your child when riding in these particular boating environments. It is better to be safe because the coast guard will not always be available to assist in a timely manner.

 

Scuba Diving in Miami for CERTIFIED divers

We have two very spacious custom Newton Dive Boats—46 feet and 40 feet.

Two tank dives start at $95 per person plus gear.

Our typical schedule for two-tank dive trips is Monday-Thursday 10:00 a.m. departure—2:00 p.m. return. Friday 1:00 p.m. departure-4:00 p.m. return—plus a night dive at 6:00 p.m. (times vary according to sunset) and on the weekends we offer 8:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., noon and 1:00 p.m. departures.

Check in for all dives and snorkel trips is 1 hour prior to departure.

Scuba Diving in Miami for NON-CERTIFIED divers

If you would like to try Scuba Diving but don’t have a Scuba license then this program is for you.

We offer this every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday year around.

The morning starts with a classroom presentation and video and then a pool session to learn the basics of scuba diving. When mastering some basic skills in the pool, you will be heading out on one of our custom dive boats to enjoy two dives right off the coast of Key Biscayne with your instructor by your side. 

You must be able to swim for this activity. For maximum safety and enjoyment, our ratio in this class for the ocean dives is 2 students to 1 instructor.

General Guidelines for Running Trips

Seas less than 2 feet—this is what South Florida is all about.

Seas 2-3 feet—diving is great but we suggest only strong snorkelers.

Seas 3-4 feet—diving is still great but no snorkelers.

Seas 4-5 feet—no novice divers or students but we will run the trip for seasoned divers.

Seas 6 feet or more—we will not run.

Weather conditions in South Florida are tropical and can change throughout the day. We will advise customers via e-mail with trip updates or cancellations as soon as we are sure the trip will be canceled. Please monitor your e-mail regularly during the hours leading up to your trip.

Divers age 10 to 15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Divers 16-17 must be accompanied by a parent/ guardian OR obtain written permission. Transportation from our South Beach store to the boat in Key Biscayne is offered at no charge on a first-reserved basis.

All of our dive trips have a dive professional in the water navigating the site. If you want a private guide, we have guides available by request for an additional fee on almost every trip. You are required to have or rent a dive computer on all dives to 70 feet or deeper.

There is a captain and crew on board at all times to supervise the diving and snorkeling activities from the boat.

Food & Beverages

We provide ice water, a selection of sodas and pre-packaged snacks at no charge on all our dive trips. Our boats have a large cooler with ice for you to store your food and drinks in if you prefer to bring your own.

You may bring and consume alcoholic beverages if you are over 21 and have finished diving or snorkeling for the day.  You will not be allowed back in the water after drinking alcohol.

Multiple dive packages are non refundable or transferable (must be used by one person only) and must be used within two years.

Taxes/fees will be added to all charters, classes and sales.

Specialty trips such as Night Dives, Tech Dives, Spiegel Grove dives and three tank dives have surcharges.

Cancellation Policy

  • We require at least 24 hours notice prior to the check in time to change your reservation with no fee or cancel your trip for a full refund. There will be no refunds, full or partial, for trips cancelled within 24 hours, or if you do not show up.
  • If we cancel your trip to due weather (wind, not rain) you will receive a full refund. Keep in mind that South Florida is a tropical environment and afternoon thunderstorms are common in the summer. These storms are usually isolated and move on quickly and will not cause us to cancel a trip.
  • We do not offer refunds in the rare occasion that we only do one of the two schedules dives. If we abort a trip after departure prior to doing the first dive we will offer a 100% refund or you can reschedule to another trip.
  • Discover Scuba and Refresher classes require 72 hours notice to cancel for a refund or to reschedule without a fee.
  • All Scuba certification classes are non refundable. Be sure to meet the requirements for the class prior to making your reservation.
  • Special trips such as shark dives, private charters and group trips require 7 days notice to cancel.
