This was our 2nd trip with the folks at A Deep Blue Dive. Staying in KCB made it easy to walk to their dock. The boat was comfortable and the crew was top notch. We snorkeled in a protected area where there was a great variety of fish. This was a great way to spend an afternoon!

We were referred to A Deep Blue Dive Center by the resort we were staying in just down the street in Marathon. Our snorkeling trip was all that I could have wished for. We were on a very well maintained dive boat with an experienced, professional and friendly captain and dive master and we had perfect weather conditions. Our trip... More

I've been diving with Deep Blue for many years now and should have written a review long before now. I had tried several of the other dive operators in Marathon over the years and settled with Deep Blue because they provided the best overall diving experience. I have always found the staff to be exceptional and honest. I do know... More

My father and I went out spearfishing in the Turtle recently and had an excellent dive with captain Lloyd and our guide Cal. We were new to spearfishing but Cal did a great job putting us in some nice hogfish in about 60ft of water. The reef was gorgeous with great visibility and would have been a great dive even... More

My family spent a day diving with A Deep Blue and it was wonderful. My 10 year old son was doing his certification dives, so we wanted to make sure that he was in very competent hands - and he was. His instructor was perfect for him. Due to his ears not equalizing, he didn't make it down on his... More

I had the best experience with A Deep Blue Dive Center in Key Colony. They took us diving on a couple of shallow reefs, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Not only were they beautiful dives, but our setup, entry, and exit went extremely well. Captain Lloyd kept us well informed and safe, and Jeff and the... More

Went on a snorkel trip with some friends and had a wonderful experience! We had been on a state park snorkel trip before and this crew was more friendly, more helpful and overall just had much better personalities. We found the design of the boat great too - nice and big with platform on the back that made it easier... More

We loved this snorkeling trip and the divers on our trip raved too. The boat is big and beautiful, the captain and the other staff person were very nice and knowledgeable, and they take you to two different spots that were quite different from one another. In the first we saw the best variety of fish we've seen on snorkeling... More

This was our first stay in the Keys and our first snorkeling trip offshore. We stayed in Key Colony Beach and this dive shop was walking distance from our house. My dad walked down, talked to the shop and arranged a snorkeling trip for myself and my fiancé the next morning. Arrived there the next morning. My dad has prepaid... More

As others have said, a 20% mandatory gratuity is not a gratuity... that's an added 20% of the bill that you can hide until you're about to swipe the customer's card. Not cool at all. The snorkeling was cool because it's a cool sport - the dive center doesn't make the reef. Be forewarned, this company will go out in... More
