Parrot Island Scuba Adventures ( is a great dive
charter. Reasonably priced, safety conscious, and accommodating. Captain
Jerry Turmaine, along with a different DM each day and a few regular local
customers, was always eager to go diving each day. We logged eight dives in
four days. The boat, Fathoms of Fun, is in great condition, it has plenty
of room, and a nice dive platform. Freshwater shower, a head, a camera
table, and cold sodas & water. Fathoms of Fun is located at the marina
next to the Hillsboro Inlet draw bridge in Pompano Beach.

Even with chop and cool temperatures, the dive sites were wonderful. We
were at a different wreck and different reef each day. Reef dives are drift
dives and each buddy team is required to tow a dive flag marker (local

We saw morays, snooks, stingrays, puffers, trunkfish, parrotfish,
spadefish, butterfly fish, damselfish, and more. Hurricane Wilma had torn
up the beaches and buildings, but the marine life was unscathed. We will
dive there again and with Parrot Island.
