Our first mistake was not asking if this was primarily a dive boat - we are snorkelers.. We went out with a group of 4 divers (so there were 6 of us on the boat) We were taken to the Benwood wreck. Seas were running 2-2 1/2 feet. The divers of course had no problem. They had no business putting... More

This is the worst diver shop in the keys. I reserve a spot to dive the day before and show them my dive card. The next day when I am ready to get on the boat they tell me I am not certified for that depth and tell me I need an instructor. I have been diving for 5 years... More

The reason you were denied boarding is due to the level of certification you currently hold, Scuba Diver. To quote the standards: Scuba Divers are trained to dive under the direct supervision of a Divemaster, Assistant Instructor, or Instructor to... More

I took my two teenagers to the Keys for a week, and I wanted them to experience the quality diving offered in this area. We stayed at the Marriott, so Pirate Island's shop location was convenient as it was on the hotel property. The prices were comparable to other shops I had considered, and we had no issues with charging... More

Pirate Island divers is located on the grounds of the Marriott Resort which makes it very convenient for the divers that stay there. I choose this resort to stay at 6 years ago because of the dive facility being on the same grounds, and have been going back every since. The resort is nice but what draws me back is... More

Pirate island dive shop located at the key largo bay marriott is so desperate for business that they charge your credit card through the front desk of the hotel whether or not you dive with them. Be aware of this unethical business practice. Dive with Horizon divers or another reputable dive shop.

My second trip with them helpful staff in shop. Great people on the boats. I dove with a guide every day. Worth the extra, they knew all the good places to poke around. I went out with Brian, Angie and Mckenzie . I would recommend having a guide highly. There is a dive shop on every corner here so it's... More

I had a great experience at this dive shop. The boat crew was knowledgeable and helped fix a problem with my gear. This was the second time I have dived with them and continue to dive with them. I definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

I looked at websites and called a couple places and decided to go with PI divers for my open water certification. They were very helpful on the phone and in person, answering any questions with a friendly attitude. My instructor was Brian Marzorati, who was excellent. Not only did he run me through the PADI training and testing, he tailored... More
