If you are looking for a charter I had a great experience with OceanQuest Scuba. Nice boat - not to big really nice captain and their DM's can really point stuff out to you.

Little Deeper Charters (http://littledeepercharters.com) runs a good operation.

Jim Abernathy's serves pineapple on the surface interval; you may also book through the internet

There are a lot of good charters in West Palm. My three favorites are all in the same marina... Little Deeper is one I use the most, then there's Jim Abernathy and Walker's Dive Charters. All three are excellent to work with. Just up the street there's Jupiter Dive Center... The reefs are a little deeper, but the fish are bigger and the lobster are less picked over...

I have dove twice with what the locals call "JASA". Had great dives both times. Competent and friendly crews, great sights. The boat is very caring about putting you on good sites to see things. My last dive with them the Captain (Sean) told us to look out for a Goliath Grouper at the site he was putting us on. I was with the advanced group and we went in first--I literally dropped directly in front of that grouper--the pictures I got were memorable!

Anyway, they do a lot of dive classes, but they will separate out the advanced divers and send them in with a DM guide. I can't say enough good things.

Jupiter dive center or scuba works is the best priced i think right now, alot of the ones i have seen lately are 60ish for 2 tank dive. there are a ton of dive spots and each shop hits a decent selection, Narcosis i heard was good too

I would also highly recommend Jim Abernethy's Scuba Adventures (Bahamas & Palm Beach, Florida Scuba Diving :: Jim Abernethy's Scuba Adventures (http://www.scuba-adventures.com)).

My son and I are on a three tank dive with J A S A on the 12th October, booked with them again as I had 4 good dives in April with them, very friendly crew and pineapple was most welcome on the surface interval :D
