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!

This was our first scuba trip after receiving our open water certification. Rainbow Reef was very accommodating and helped us every step of the way. Dive sites were perfect - relatively shallow, warm and very clear. Our guides, Owen the first day and Doug the second day, were both very helpful and conscientious about making sure we kept an eye...

I have been to numerous dive joints all over the world, but this one is really top notch! I took my 14 y/o son Phillip on his first discovery dive (on a reef anyway) and they were simply amazing. We dove 11 November and the water was just fine. The training pool was heated too. We wore shorties in the... More

I recently took my IDC at Rainbow Reef and was beyond impressed. Ross, Chris, and Kevin are by far the best instructors I have worked with since I began diving. I felt more confident that I could have ever imagined when I walked into my Instructor Exam. If you are looking to become an instructor, or just going for some... More

My buddy and I were just open water certified through rainbow reef a few weeks ago and we couldn't be happier. Mike was our instructor and he was great. He provided excellent practical teaching outside of the PADI video instructions (glad I didn't do the online course vs doing the full cert onsite) and we were able to get out... More

Our dive club Panama City Dive Club booked a trip with Rainbow Reef this past weekend. The staff went above and beyond in helping us with our weekend excursion. Capt. Dean and Dive master Curt were both phenomenal and entertaining at the same time. The boat the Tropical Odyssey was very roomy and accommodating and the ease of entry and... More

My wife Laurie and I completed the next phase of our journey to be PADI Instructors by taking the Emergency First Responder and Rescue Diver courses at RRDC. Our Instructor was Nikki with occasional feed back from Dan. We learned so much from these courses, as well as the real world experience Nikki had to offer. We spent a combination... More

This is my wife and I's third trip to the Keys but first time diving with Rainbow Reef. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our first dive was on our anniversary and Dallas the dive guide took our picture underwater. The staff was great about helping with your gear. They changed tanks if you wanted and got your mask ready... More

Our Dive Club from Panama City booked our diving with Rainbow Reef and it was a great choice. Crew was knowledgable and very helpful. They made our dives stress fee and easy going. They were very conveniently located to our hotel (actually on the same canal). Will come diving with them again for sure.
