I came down in January to do my IDC with Rainbow Reef . This place is first class from the instructors to the staff at the store , the crew on the boat . If you want to take any padi courses or just dive this is the place to go in the Keys . The equipment is top level... More

This was my first opportunity to dive in salt water and it didn't disappoint. They made us take a refresher because it had been over two years since we'd been in open water but it was quick (and honestly pretty productive). Without too much comparison I felt like the prices for a charter and rental equipment were pretty reasonable. Guides... More

Due to the weather we were only able to get 3 dives in. The staff were all friendly and willing to help. The dive boats were all great and kept clean.Dive breifings were thorough,a roll call was done at the beginning and after each dive. They do provide a guide. We would definitely use them again.

My fiancé and I spent two days diving with them and they were great. The dive guides knew about all the sites we went to and made sure we all felt comfortable. During the dive, they pointed out all the big animals and made sure out group was together and did regular checkups on our air. They did a great... More

We got our AOW with Rainbow Reef. Kirk was an awesome instructor. Very patient. We also dived with Rainbow Reef and all the guides were great. All the staff members were great too.

Spent 5 days with Rainbow reef doing our Rescue diver certification, and then some fun dives. Dan was a great instructor, explaining all the skills clearly and guiding us through the rescue scenario in a way that kept if fun and safe, while learning really useful stuff. The boat crew, and other dive guides, were all friendly and helpful, with... More

I recently completed a training marathon at Rainbow Reef. My visit started with Rescue Diver and culminated in receiving my Instructor Certification and moving on to complete the Master Scuba Diver Trainer Preparation program. It was four plus weeks of hard work but it was well worth the time and money. The quality of instruction that we received was second... More

Very Unprofessional Leadership, not the place to do an IDC. You can expect a condescending attitude and poor services.

The boat size is reasonable. The boat crew is excellent. this charter provides the additional advantege of a guided tour to show you popular attractions like the Christ of the Abyss. We also dove Mike's Wreck, and the Hole in the Wall. On the contrary, one of the ladies at the counter was not helpful and rude.
