Our Dive Sites

60 Wrecks + 30 reefs just 30-min away from our dock!

Our dive shop is located in the Eastern end of the pristine Key Biscayne, a hidden gem found just minutes outside of downtown Miami and Miami Beach, yet offers an island-like atmosphere of seclusion and relaxation. We offer daily spectacular diving and snorkeling experiences to the coral reefs and shipwrecks that are just minutes from our dock. Our dive boats visit over 70 different sites, including the Neptune Memorial Reef, that are accessible for a range of diver experience and certification level, from Open Water to technical divers.

Known as the “WRECKREATIONAL” diving destination. With it’s close proximity to the Bahamas and the Gulf Steam, Miami enjoys beautiful diving conditions year round.

With water temperatures from 70′ to 85′ and visibility often better than 75′, Miami is a perfect dive destination.

Do I need to know how to swim to participate in snorkeling or scuba diving activities?

Yes, all scuba diving and snorkeling participants must be comfortable swimmers.

Do you need to be a certified diver to scuba dive?

You must be a certified diver to scuba dive on all of our trips, except for students in training and Discover Scuba Divers, who can experience the thrill of scuba diving for a day without being scuba certified.

What trips can I snorkel on?

As our boats take both scuba divers and snorkelers out on the same trips, we are sure to indicate on all of our trip listings whether a specific site will be suitable for snorkeling or not. Snorkeling is not available at all of our sites however -any trip listed on our calendar that includes the “Snorkelers welcome on this trip!” message will be a shallower site and a great location for snorkeling.

Can I take my scuba class in Spanish?

Yes! The majority of our staff at Diver’s Paradise are bilingual, and between our team we speak 10 different languages. We offer Open Water Diver classes in both English and Spanish, and we can offer private classes in Portuguese, German, Italian, and French.

What happens if my dive is cancelled due to weather?

At Diver’s Paradise, our number one priority is ensuring the safety of our trip passengers and crew. As we are located in South Florida, we closely monitor wind and weather conditions to assess if they are suitable for diving and snorkeling. If one of our dive trips is cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions, all customers will be notified of the cancelation by both email and by phone ahead of time. Customers will be given the option to reschedule or to be refunded for their trip booking and may indicate their preference by replying to the cancelation email. Refunds are typically completely processed within 7-10 business days.

How long does it take to get my certification card after completing the class?

You will receive either a digital license or temporary card immediately upon completion all classes so you can start diving right away. Plastic PADI cards take 1 to 2 weeks to process and arrive at your home.

Can I fly after diving?

According the the PADI dive tables, you must wait 18 to 24 hours AFTER diving before flying. If you are doing three dives I suggest waiting 24 hours or referring to your dive computer for instructions on flying after diving.

How old do you need to be to get scuba certified?

The minimum age to get your SCUBA license is 10. We advise that kids close to this age be strong swimmers and mature enough to study their training materials with minimal help.
Any class with a 10 or 11 year old in it is limited to a maximum ratio of 2 students to 1 instructor. When the child turns 15, you can convert their license from Jr. OW to Open Water. Divers aged 10 to 14 must dive with an adult certified diver at all times.

Do I need a license to scuba dive?

You must have a SCUBA license in order to rent SCUBA equipment or go diving. If you do not have a license and want to scuba dive then our Discover Scuba Diving class is perfect for you

I forgot or lost my scuba diving license, can I still dive with you?

If you hold a PADI, SSI or NAUI Certification Card we can verify it through the internet. If you hold any other training agencies license you will have to contact them and ask to have a proof sent to you. We suggest you take a photo your certification card so that you always have access to it.

What if I can't complete my dive class?

You have one year to complete your dive class from the time you start it. If you can not complete your class with us we will issue a referral so that you may continue with another PADI dive center. We do not issue refunds, in part or in full, for any dive classes.

Why don't you include mask, snorkel and fins in any of your certification classes?

These items are personal in nature and need to be fitted by a professional to ensure proper fit and to be sure you have the right equipment for your diving environment. All of our classes allow plenty of time to get fitted prior to any in water training. We do not allow snorkeling gear (the type sold at wallmart etc) as personal gear., It is not suitable for scuba diving.

Can I dive while on my period?

Yes, it is completely safe to so so as long as you feel mentally well enough to do so. There are no documented cases in history of sharks being attracted to menstrual blood.

Can I dive if I am pregnant?

Unfortunately no. There is no research to support the safety of diving while pregnant.
