Rainbow Reef was an excellent, professional and friendly dive shop. They made our diving experience fun and safe. My husband and I took our Nitrox Cert there and Jack was our instructor. Great guy and very thorough. If you are diving in Key Largo, Rainbow Reef is the place to go.

I picked Rainbow Reef after looking at the reviews, but mostly after talking directly to one of the instructors. We wanted to dive the Spiegel Grove wreck. This instructor said they wouldn't take us down without our Advance Open Water certificate. (unlike another dive shop that would, if you paid extra). We decided to take our AOW class & do... More

Great staff who couldn't do enough for us they really made the dives interesting and easy. They are super conscious about the environment and safety, we have recommended them to a friend who is going to the keys soon. I am OW qualified and my husband Adv. The groups were well managed and small, we would use them again.

Just spent the entire day at Rainbow Reef Dive Center. Had a great day despite being a bit chilly in February. Rainbow reef is a very nice center with lots of crew and guides to help you with your dive experience. The boats are in great condition and most of the equipment is too. Most of the guides seemed good.... More

You can also buy some stuff there like lights, knifes and Rainbow Reef swag. Everyone is extremely knowledgable, passionate... More

Very good crew of professionals, very knowledgeable of the area and reefs. We brought our own dive gear so can't comment about their gear, however the boats are all in good shape and well cared for. Coming from California we signed up for two days of diving, wreck diving and reef diving. The weather did not cooperate but they were... More

When things don't go as planned you get to see a company's real stripes. Rainbow Reef's bent over backwards to make my experience the best it could've been. I booked a trip for checkout dives. Then a blizzard hit my hometown, right before heading down. I called and, no problem, RR rescheduled me without any fuss. Then I arrived with... More

My wife wanted to go diving for her birthday. We checked lots of locations for total cost (travel, hotel, diving). The cost to get to, stay and dive with Rainbow Reef was perfect. They also had some of the best reviews. We stayed right next door at the Marriott Courtyard. You cannot get any more convenient than that. We arrived... More

Rainbow Reef gave my 16yr-old daughter and me the perfect combination of flexible scheduling, friendly service and awesome diving. The staff and boat crews were fabulous and kept everything fun, efficient and SAFE! We can't wait to get back and we would not consider another dive operator in the upper keys. Special thanks to Bri and Stephanie for patiently helping... More
