Check out Force-E dive Center while you are there. They can set you up with a few different boats and any rental gear you might need. I dived with them out of Pompano,
http://www.force-e.com/stores/fort_lauderdale_scuba_center.shtml the shop is only a mile from the boat Basin. The trick is the parking, the fishing head boats take up the parking at the marina early. I found mostly friendly local divers on the boat in two days of diving. Other than getting passed some swift surface currents it is GREAT diving. The best drift diving to be found. For a few extra dollars the boat I was on had tanks on board which beat stopping by the shop to pick them up the night before.
