Get The Insiders Price

They know the places to stay and the prime times to go diving. They have gained the knowledge and made the contacts. The Florida Dive Connection team would like to help our members dive like an "insider." We've done the work and sought out the best dive connections in Florida and arranged special "insider" pricing and offers for our members. We've put that together with an array of resources for members to cover all aspects of diving in Florida. Use our calendar to discover exciting diving related events, find a buddy on our Buddy Connection page, share your photos, or stay informed on our news page. Florida Dive Connection is here to keep you connected and to make diving in Florida more fun and affordable. Join today and in most cases you will save the cost of your membership on your first dive trip.
