Since 1977 Quiescence has concentrated on providing it's clientele with an un-crowded and personalized way to enjoy the sport of diving - both scuba diving and snorkeling. We have three boats here at Quiescence, and each operates with a maximum of six passengers to provide each customer with personalized attention, comfort, and safety. This also gives us the ability to take our divers out to spots not normally visited by divers. Our charters operate within the Key Largo National Marine Sanctuary, John Pennekamp State Park, and beyond. Each dive location is selected first and foremost by the customer's wishes, supported by recommendations by the Captain as to local conditions.

Have been diving with this shop for a few years now. Just had two new divers (one junior) come down for their checkout dives and the instructor was great! Quiescence runs small boats (6 divers) which is extremely nice for small groups/families. Boats are well maintained and the crew is very helpful.

We had a wonderful time. We went out two days. The first with the whole family to "The Christ statue". The captain allowed me special accommodation's for my 18 year old son who has Autism. We went snorkeling while my husband and 16 year old went diving. Its great that they don't take more than 6 people. They go where... More

We had a great week diving with Q. Cate did a great job completing the training for my wife and 10 year old daughter. The captains were superb!! They take their job seriously, but know how to have fun too. Next time I come to Key Largo I will definitely dive with them.

I spent four days diving with Quiescence, March 17-20, and I couldn't have been happier. Everything about Quiescence is top-shelf, and the other divers I talked to during my daily trips agreed wholeheartedly. Quiescence runs 3 boats, which they limit to 6 divers per boat. Each day, I saw the staff going through their paces from the front desk, to... More

Quiescence is the best. You will not regret choosing them for your dive. My daughter and I are newly certified divers, and the 6 person max/boat helped us feel completely at easy and made our first experience diving in the ocean one that we will never forget. However, any level of diver would have a great experience with this company.... More

The staff here were all very friendly, Kate in particular. They were flexible with our reservations and made sure I was warm enough in 3 layers of wetsuit. I am used to following a local dive master on dives, so going in the water with other visiting divers was different for me. I wish they had dive guides accompanying the... More

Great guys to deal with. Very helpful. Laid back but knowledgeable. Did two dives 12/13/14. The Benwood wreck and French Reef were the two dives on a fairly windy choppy day. The dives are not guided but these are easy locations. The crew handles all of your gear for you and does just about everything but make the dive for... More

This is our favorite keys dive shop. They only take out 6 people per boat so you are really getting personalized attention. Your dives are not overcrowded and they did a great job with our son when he was a SCUBA ranger a few years ago. This is the only shop we use in the Keys.
