About us

a few words about us

Since 1976, South Florida has been the stopping ground for Force-E.

We treat our customers like we run our business, like family. With nearly 40 years in the business, we could have gone in a different direction by putting dollars above all else, but that’s just our way. Our success is based on our love of snorkeling and diving, the ocean, conservation, education and community.

We have had a hand at shaping the South Florida dive community as it is now. We had in integral part in building the popularity of the Blue Heron Bridge, one of the most famous U.S. dive sites. In addition, we encourage our customers to be environmentally aware by hosting regular reef clean up, lionfish round ups, and educational seminars. And last, but not least, we like to party. Why is this so important? Well, diving is fun, and we should get together to celebrate it.

Are-you-serious fun facts about Force-E:

  1. Family owned and operated since the beginning
  2. In 1989, Force-E was the first to design and implement a home study program for the academics portion of the scuba certification. It is the model all online scuba courses are based on today.
  3. 1st use of the snug-fitting vinyl gloves for diving. Now common accessory in Florida.
  4. Force-E owned the company that invented the “Looper” which is the standard lobster catching tool used today
