My fiance and I become open water certified mid 2014. We couldn't wait to get our fins wet. Unfortunately, I could not accompany him on his first dive due to work. He went with a buddy in July and they had a wonderful experience with Rainbow Reef. Stayed at the Courtyard Marriott and walked out of his room onto the... More

We dove with Rainbow Reef the week of Dec 1-6 and had a fantastic time! This is our third time diving in Key Largo over 4 years and I return to RR because they never disappoint. I always come back because they are efficient, friendly, professional, and safe! We dove on Molasses Reef, Snapper Ledge, and did a Spiegel Grove... More

I was there during the week, weather cooler than average. So, a few of the signed up divers didn't show. We had 3 divers and 4 staff. Tons of room on the boat. We went to Molasses reef for some shallow 20 to 40 foot dives. I hadn't been diving in a couple of years so I chose the shallow... More

I can't say enough great things about Rainbow Reef Dive Center in Key Largo! They have a shop on Overseas Hwy/US-1 but their marina where you board the charter is located next to Courtyard Marriott, where there's ample parking and restrooms in the hotel. Their website is extremely helpful and updated hourly. You can call to reserve spots on a... More

We recently traveled to the Florida Keys for scuba diving. Our first 4 days we spent in Key Largo. We planned to dive every day but the weather was not cooperating. Finally on Tuesday we were able to dive and the staff at Rainbow Reef was excellent. The boat carries a lot of divers but there is plenty of staff... More

Dove twice with RR this trip. As usual for November/December here, the winds were annoying and caused the cancelltion of couple of dive days. One of which I made up elsewhere, thankfully. As an experiened open ocean diver, I am a little more comfortable in rough seas, although not everyone is safe in those conditions, so cancelling is prudent, sometimes.... More

I found Rainbow Reef Dive Center online after doing s search for referral dives since i needed to complete my dives for my open water scuba certification. Their website was easy to navigate and they seemed to have the best value. They also assisted with my hotel reservations since they are a destination dive center. Their staff are friendly, knowledgable... More

Amazing instruction and caring diving instructors and crew! Dan, our instructor was so knowledgeable and attentive! The guides were so amazing and conscientious. As a new diver I was nervous but every single member of each crew I was with totally made me feel relaxed. I was able to pass my advanced open water and nitrox class because of the... More

My partner and I recently completed our classroom and pool sessions and were looking for a warm destination to complete our open water dives for PADI Open Water Diver certification. I looked at a lot of websites to find a good company to dive with and several looked promising. I was initially put off from Rainbow Reef because some of... More

Joined a group from my NY dive shop on an extended weekend dive trip. Was really impressed with this dive center, from the friendly staff and crew to the efficiency of the operation. As a relatively new diver, I felt safe and cared for by Captain Dean, 1st Mates Kirk, Rachel and Stefan!
