Four of us were on a fishing charter anchored on the Thunderbolt on 9-11-2014 when the Seafari pulled up right on our bowline, made a tight circle from port to starboard then dropped his anchor within 100 feet of us fishing and began putting divers in the water. What kind of captain/company puts divers in this type of danger????. The... More

Although I got seasick after the first dive, The SNUBA was a cool experience. My family enjoyed virtually a SCUBA dive without all the training required, but in a safe manner. The minimum age for SNUBA is 8, and there is a very good reason. Any younger and they will NOT be able to bring themselves to breath 10 feet... More

I will be writing two separate reviews of Dive Duck Key. One review will be the experience I had as a adult certified diver and the other will be my experience getting my 12 year old girls certified with Dive Duck Key We happen to visit during the busiest time of the year, mini lobster season. While my kids were... More

My family and I stayed at Hawks Cay for 7 nights and SNUBA was the activity my family and I decided to give a try. With no diving and little snorkeling experience we were complete beginners and needed to feel safe and comfortable. Our team of hosts did just that.. The entire staff provided guided instruction and kept us in... More

I went out today on a guided spearfishing trip with Schwenke. He is a great guy and taught me everything I needed to know. We dove around, and he put me on the fish. Cant ask for much more! Thank you to all of the Dive Duck Key staff!

The office staff was good and well organized. My 9 yo granddaughter and I did the snuba dives at $199 a pop. The dive trip lasts about 4 hours with 2 shallow reef dives about 25' deep. The boat is the typical wallowing dive boat so if you get sea sick easily pick a calm day. Once you are on... More

I did research on the places in the Keys to go diving. I hadn't been in a few years and wanted a very good place. Everything led me to Dive Duck Key. I was not disappointed at all. Jessica at the front desk was extremely helpful in getting my dive schedule set up. Also since I hadn't been down for... More

We booked through Hawk's Cay and were very happy. Snuba is an outstanding way to experience the coral and sealife without a certification. We are greatly appreciative to the staff at Dive Duck Key for their experience, patience, and instruction. We had 7 in our party ranging from 10 to 69 and all had an experience to remember.

If you are a diver, there is no more professional operation than Dive Duck Key. They bend over backwords to give you a first class experience. We call it "concierge diving"..they turn it into all play and no work. You don't even have to set up your gear, and they are "safety first." And if you are serious about seeing... More

Being a solo diver you never know how a dive outfit will respond to the odd man out. They worked with me and when the possibility arose that they couldn't pair me with someone they called to see if I wanted to switch my dive. The entire crew from Jessica in the shop to Wayne and Thomas and all the... More
