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!

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!

My group had used Dive Duck Key for a series of dives over a few days. I can't say enough good things about these guys! The staff, captains, and crew were always incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and professional in every way imaginable. Next time I'm off diving in the Keys, there's not a question in my mind about which charter I'm... More

Dive Duck Key did it again! I've been bringing a Heritage Awareness Diving training seminar to DDK for the past several years, and they've always been fantastic partners. We appreciate their professionalism, expertise, safety, courtesy, and, most especially, fun! This year was no different. Capt "Coach" and Schwenke took great care of us - even with a little boat glitch... More

I have snorkelled before but this time decided to SNUBA. Went out with Capt Pat and Schwenke today with good weather less than 1 foot seas. Good reef diving. Bring your GoPro! Instructions provided such as clearing water out of our mask and decompressing (ears) was excellent. Each SNUBA session lasted about 30 minutes. Highly recommend for a introduction to... More

Another great dive with the Dive Duck Key group. Jessi as our trip organizer and dive buddy and Dan as our captain, we visited two beautiful reefs and saw many sea creatures. Visibility was easily 60 ft. Thanks Joe and Wendy for another great experience.

Been here 3 times now and always have an awesome experience. The team is always friendly and helpful and makes the dives more enjoyable. I am not an experienced diver and Jessica is always close by and finds very cool critters to see and even touch. Thanks again gang! Randy G.

Our family SCUBA and SNUBA dived with Dive Duck Key and they were fabulous! The entire staff was WONDERFUL with our 9 and 10 year old so I would definitely recommend them if you are diving as a family. Schwenke was excellent at teaching the basics of diving in the classroom and in the pool. He was most patient and... More
