A terribly sad day for OCEAN DIVERS...What was once a top notch dive centre has, since being acquired by Divers Direct, dove directly and decidedly downwards... Hands down Ocean Divers used to be one of the best dive operations I have experienced in approximately 20 years of diving. In the past there was no other place I would ever recommend... More

Did 12 tanks with Ocean Divers over 5 days. Missed a few days due to weather. Conditions were a little rough with air temps in high 50s and winds over 25 knots. Even with all the conditions dicey, the boat crews were amazing. Tuck, Gavin, Tom, Lou, and Kim. Courteous, safe, and willing to listen. These people are where this... More

Mother Nature isn't always cooperative with plans, but I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves on the days that you were able to dive! While we want everyone to have fun, safety comes first. While we try to keep the customer experience running smoothly, we are still getting used to some of the changes with our POS systems. We really appreciate your... More

The group I dive with from Virginia Beach, VA spent three days of diving with Ocean Divers from January 7th through January 9th 2016. Despite not listing them on their web site schedule, Ocean Divers was willing to put together a set of custom dives for us, arranged so that we would get dives on the deep wrecks that we... More

I was recommended this company by some english friends and they were not wrong! Ocean divers operates 3 dive boats out of Key Largo and allows you to dive the Spiegel Grove, Benwood and other wrecks, along with the local reef which is one of the largest in the world. Service on land and on the boat was great with... More

I can no longer recommend Ocean Divers. Since they have been bought out by Divers Direct they have become just another cattle boat operation only interested in rushing your dive so they can return to the dock quicker and pick up another load of cattle. They have instituted a strict time limit on your dive allowing only 1 hour. To... More

It is true that Divers Direct has purchased Ocean Divers, but far from true that we run a "cattleboat operation" Ocean Divers has always timed the dives during trips, otherwise we would never be able to keep our schedule. We do 1 hour locations and for safety measures we require the diver to be back on the surface within the... More

We've been diving with OD for many years for a reason - safety. This year, we didn't feel as though it was a priority. Instead, the new "corporate" mentality was omnipresent. It seems that numbers and income have become the rule. We were sorry to hear about the loss of Captain Joe. And where is Connie? She has helped us... More

I am a SCUBA diving professional that visits the Keys for recreational diving. Ocean Divers has, for years, been a family owned and operated business. The staff has always been great, energetic and fun. You could definitely tell that they were a family and you, as a client, were invited into that family atmosphere. My recent trip, with my wife,...

Checked the place out, saw 3 nice boats and staff seemed friendly. Wanted to dive but the week we were there the wind wasn't cooperating. Called for weather updates for ,3 days. Finally, they said it wood be good. Waves 2-3 ft wind 11knots. So, we booked our dive. Well, got out there and waves were 5-7 ft, wind 18... More
