Our family took a week off and sailed to beautiful Key Largo, determined to obtain our PADI certification.....and we did it!!! It was more intense than we expected, but well worth the challenges. We were blessed with an absolutely dynamic, charismatic and knowledgeable instructor, Ryan Hiler, who took care of us like family!!! Molasses Reef was paradise! Kudos to Rainbow... More

We did three days of diving at Rainbow Reef and found them to be a great diving operation. The prices were reasonable, the boats were clean, the topside crew was capable and the dive guides were universally helpful. We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott and we could not beat the proximity to the Rainbow Reef docks. All we had to... More

Received my Open Water and Advance certificate through Rainbow Reef Dive Center of Key Largo. What a professional and friendly team they have. I have been to many dive shops up and down the Keys and must rate them #1. The team is always excited that you are learning and having fun. A special call out to Brent Pirich, one... More

We had researched on line the various options in the Keys to go diving with. I am a non teaching instructor of old (@5 years now)and I was conscious of safety – especially for our 10 year olds who were planning on getting certified as Jr Open Water Divers. After much research on the web and with PADI, we opted... More

My buddy and I showed up a bit early for check in and were told we had to wait until the exact time before we could be allowed to fill out forms etc. This isn't a true shop, more so a shack in the parking lot. It is extremely crowded at check in and the staff just tells you to... More

The office was very friendly signing me up for dive and staff at the boat was the same. The boat staff made sure you always had whatever you need and they were great about working with divers off all different levels on the dives. I really liked being put into small groups and then being assigned a guide that showed... More

We had Ryan as our instructor. He made getting certified somehow as serious as it needed to be, but still fun and relaxing. The atmosphere with all the Rainbow Reef staff from the store to class to the boats is exactly how you would want them to be. They are extremely friendly, took the time to talk to you, most... More

Second year I went with son (adult). Great group, worked well with us. Only downside is that is a large boat. Would recommend morning dives in the Keys over afternoon. Viz better.

The crew for our dive trip was absolutely amazing. They made sure to pick a dive spot that had 70 feet of visibility and went out of their way underwater to point out many interesting fish, sharks and other sea life. In addition to their underwater expertise, they were helpful (I was diving solo with 2 newly certified teenagers), sociable... More

Last week, I went with my cousin her 5 nieces, (ages 13-19) and my daughter, (age13) to Key Largo to get PADI open water certification. My cousin chose Rainbow Reef Dive Center and they were great! The girls had one main instructor, Brody, but you could tell, the other instructors were there for back up if he needed them. Brody... More
