Dive Duck Key in the heart of the Florida Keys is a full service retail scuba diving shop. Our dive shop and dive boat, the Seafari, are located at the Hawks Cay Resort, Duck Key, Florida. We specialize in reef and wreck scuba diving in the Florida Keys. Hawks Cay Resort is oceanside, which allows us to get to our destination quickly for a great day of scuba diving in the middle Keys. The coral reef off Duck Key is as close as 3 miles from our dock. Diving with our shop, Dive Duck Key, we can show you up to 30 different dive spots, located off Duck Key, mile marker 61, on the 180 mile chain of the Florida Keys' coral reef. The Florida Keys' coral reef is composed of thin plates or layers of calcium carbonate secreted over thousands of years by billions of tiny, soft-bodied animals called coral polyps. The reef is constantly growing new colonies of polyps on top of the skeletons of older ones. These coral formations can be seen just under the water's surface to deeper than we can dive recreationally. Dive Duck Key has a long list of fun things to do while vacationing in the Florida Keys. We offer great scuba diving trips, resort courses, SNUBA(R), and full scuba diving certification lessons. We rent all types of scuba gear - including tanks, regulator consoles, dive lights, weight belts, full/shorty wet suits, hoods, mask, prescription masks, fins, open heel fins with booties, snorkels - whatever you need to dive the Florida Keys. We also repair scuba diving equipment and we can fill your tanks with air, and have nitrox tanks available for rental. Dive Duck Key has a large inventory of scuba and snorkel retail items. Plus, our T-shirts are great; pirates, scuba dive and snorkel scenes, and of course, sharks!

I just got back from an amazing day of spearfishing with Dive Duck Key. It was my first time spearfishing, and their crew member Schwenke gave me all the information I needed to shoot some fish. He was an excellent guide and instructor, and I'd highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn the sport. He went over safety,... More

This was my son's first experience diving and now he is hooked. The team at Dive Duck Key are very professional and look after their customers. As a dive instructor myself, I was totally comfortable with the entire crew and how they work. This is certainly an experience you will not forget.

This past weekend we had the best experience with the staff from Dive Duck Key. All I say is that they are excellent. Extremely professional and knowledgeable as well as patient and flexible and let's not forget fun. My two teenage daughters completed their open water dives certification and both instructors, Wendy & Linda were amazing. Thank you to all... More

Staff was fun and friendly. Took the time needed to get my wife comfortable with SNUBA. Great time and a lot of life under the sea to be amazed at. A must do!

I was with a large professional group and we used DDK several days in a row, of which, we used two different boats and crews of DDK. We could not have had a better time!!! Both crews were exceptional professional and extremely friendly on... More

The group I dive with has used DDK for several years, and every time we have a fantastic dive trip! The staff is friendly and very attentive to safety. The service is always great and the dives are always amazing. I would recommend them to anybody that is planning a dive trip in the keys!

Our group has been using Dive Duck Key for a number of years, and each time we have had a wonderful experience! The staff are polite, professional, and always willing to assist.

Went out w/Dive Duck Key with the Heritage Awareness Diving Seminar. The crew were fun, yet professional and extremely organized. They had a well-thought out boat that was safety conscious and concerned about the charter group's experience. I certainly recommend them to anyone who wants a fun and rewarding dive in the Middle Keys!
