What we're about

The South Florida Watersports Community is for those that want to let loose and explore new adventures on and in the water. We are looking for like-minded people to grow this community and challenge ourselves whether scuba diving, paddle boarding, kayaking, and meeting new friends that share the same enjoyment for life. We welcome all levels of expertise from new people to a particular watersport, and the seasoned instructor that puts true value on training and experience. We host bi-weekly events that can range from beach cleanup and restoration, to instructional workshops, and themed hosted trips to national parks and dive sites in our local waters from Palm Beach to the Keys. We are looking forward to growing this like-minded, safe, and adventurous watersports community together!
