Our Top Scuba Diving Reviews

“I recently completed my AOW dIver certification with Ren and Starfish Scuba. My experience was awesome! Ren is an excellent dive instructor. A big thanks to Ren, Mati and Captain Chris….what a wonderful bunch of guys!!”

Tara Rodgers

“Starfish Scuba is a great outfit, great skipper, Chris Deen along with PADI instructor Ren serve as an excellent team. Starfish is great boat for novice and expert divers alike. Safety is paramount for these guys. I would highly recommend them to all divers. Dr. Bill Anderson”

Bill Anderson

“We are dive shop owners and thought we’d use Starfish Scuba for a day of diving while on personal vacation in the Boynton Beach area. The solid reviews we read about them were all justified. They are a solid, safe operation with clear and concise safety and dive briefings. The Castor wreck dive did not disappoint with the most Goliath Groupers we have ever seen on one dive. We highly recommend using Capt. Chris and his friendly team if diving in the area. We’ll done guys, we’ll be back! Chris & Lorraine”

Chris Sproule

“Excellent time going out with Starfish Scuba. Chris, Ren and Julia were awesome. Highly recommended!”

Michael Berthold

“What an awesome day on the water. Even better is was more like a private charter. The weather was great and the crew was the best. I highly recommend Starfish Scuba. I have been out with them before and will go out with them again. I had so much fun.”

Chris Winters

At first I thought it was weird that the dive sites weren’t set. But then I realized that they choose whatever spots are best on that day in that area. The staff was super nice and very friendly. We rented our gear and they even switched it over in between dives for us!! We had a GREAT time.

Sara Clarfield

“After having a basic PADI from 46 years ago, I decided to recertify for an Open Water card. The folks at Starfish Scuba were very friendly, helpful, and conscientious. Ren was an excellent teacher. The dive sites were terrific as well. I can recommend Starfish Scuba without hesitation.”

Jeff Alter

“We had an amazing time with Starfish Scuba! 2 tank dive at beautiful reefs off of Boynton beach. Chris and Mati were a great crew, helpful, funny and professional. I would highly recommend this outfitter.”

Kate Leonard

“I love Starfish Scuba…such a great team and vessel! The crew is attentive and fun! Still true, time after time.”

Laura Castanza

“Great diving with you. Chris, Mati and Julia do a wonderful job.
Hot Chocolate put you over the top.”

Allen Winik

“Wonderful dive sites, great crew and Capt Chris is fun (and safe)! Nice bottled water and snacks! Easy boat to get in and out of the ocean. Convenient loading and parking.”

Norman Anderson

“I had contacted Starfish Scuba in Boynton Beach about diving 3 days (the 2nd week of Nov) when we were meeting friends in the area that wanted to dive. It was really bad timing though as we were here when the King Tide happened that caused great surfing rolling waves but not conducive to small water craft. Chris discussed going to the Blue Heron Bridge but ultimately did not recommend as the visibility was not good, having to do with the King Tide. We did make it on the boat one day to Briney Breezes and Tumbled Rocks dives sites. I wish I had pictures to share of the boat as well as on the dives. There were lots of egg looking things rolling around and found out those were from turtles that had just hatched. Chris, Julia and Derick were fabulous. The waves were still pretty high but Chris is a very good captain and handled it well. Three of the four of us are new at diving so appreciated the attention from all the crew. We needed to rent an assortment of equipment which was in good shape. Derick was very attentive with all our different skill levels. The boat is clean and well taken care of. A very friendly bunch, they made recommendations of things to do and places to eat! I would definitely contact Starfish Scuba again when in the area.”

Cher Hamel

“Starfish Scuba is one amazing dive charter. They have great people on the boat that make the entire scuba trip easy and extremely fun. If you want a relaxing dive charter that shows you some of the best of what South Florida diving has to offer Starfish Scuba is your best bet.”

Thank you for the absolute great time

Laurent Ceron

“Always on time and very professional. The captain and divemaster were in lock-step and always put the safety of the divers first and foremost. Would easily recommend them if you’re in the Boynton Beach area.”

Rick Mendez

Awesome dive op! Safety conscious, comfortable boat and excellent service.

Michelle Reynolds

“The Starfish crew is the best! They’ll drop you on the best diving and they’re just fun to be around. I’ve done 6 dives with them in the last week and I’ll be doing at least four more in the next. I couldn’t be happier!

Ross Kahn

“Highly recommend this dive operation. They accommodated all our needs, especially given a very challenging dive to see the Goliath Groupers, the current very strong that day. They went over conditions/briefing in detail, helped with tanks/dive computers. Did it all in a friendly, professional and kind/understanding manner. Our second dive was on a stunning reef. Dereck was outstanding. Also not a cattle boat, very personalized.

Susan Collins

“Captain Chris and DM Derrick provided a great day of diving in Boynton. Friendly guys with a ton of experience and very good at what they do, I can’t ask for more. Thanks again guys see you again soon!

Steve Schiff

“Starfish Scuba is Awesome! Had two great dives with them this weekend, the Castor Wreck and then Table Top and Lynn’s Reef. Lots and lots to see including Goliath Grouper, Moray and Spotted Eels and even a Bull Shark in the distance.

Captain Chris at the helm and Derek the Dive master made the whole experience fun and easy, in spite of slightly challenging conditions. We had a great time and will be back again soon!

Dive with Starfish Scuba, they will treat you like a Star!”

Paul Clive

“This was my first trip on this boat!!! I had a wonderful time!!! I’m deaf, and not having a translator, this crew made sure I understood their procedures at every tank dive I was doing. I couldn’t believe how much they kept it in their mind about me even with 10+ more divers as well. Thanks Starfish Scuba for all patience working with me.

Johnny Raymond

“Friendly knowledgeable and extremely helpful!
Derek the dive master was very impressive especially after he went back in the water and found my weights. Captain Chris too was very impressive and certainly knows what he’s doing out there! Thanks again!
