Great service at this dive shop. Boats are limited to 6 divers max which is perfect. Remember, this isn't guided diving but with Steve as your boat captain, you won't go wrong (he makes great dive site sketches on the white board so you know how to get around and get back to the boat !!). They worked hard to... More

Quiescence is a unique dive operator with only three six-passenger boats. If you are allergic to big boats with dozens of scuba divers stumbling across deck, consider Quiescence. Their boats are very comfortable and fast. This operation is truly a well-oiled machine; efficiently run by a cordial staff. Captain Harry was quite knowledgeable of the Key Largo area -- we... More

I took my 10 year old daughter down for her open water referral dives. We chose Quiescence as we have taken snorkel trips with them before and had a great experience. This time my daughter requested Caitlin as her instructor for the 4 dives over 2 days. She was available the days we chose and my daughter had a great... More

Quiescence had top of the line gear, service, and perfect boats. Only 6 passengers, but maybe as few as 2. Don and Ben really treated our family well. The reef is perfect for inexperience divers to get a great experience.

We did an afternoon snorkel trip with Quiescence in July. They had been recommended to us as a great dive shop, and we love purveyors with small/limited boat groups. So, when we wanted to snorkel, we found out they do that too. We were so lucky, we had a boat of just snorkelers and just 5 of us at that.... More

We had a great experience today with Captain Don for my kids' first snorkeling experience. It was just the three of us and him on the boat, and the staff sent us off with properly fitting equipment. We told Don the kids were brand new to snorkeling and also somewhat timid, so he took us to a nice relatively shallow... More

We had seen that this company had good reviews on Trip Advisory and that they aimed at taking smaller groups out to dive. We decided to book some dives with this company because we felt we would receive more attention, which we needed, as we were newly certified and this would be our first salt water dive. The morning of... More

Have you ever had something go wrong or break and think it was going to ruin a trip. That happened to me today. I have high dollar gear. My high pressure hose with quick disconnect went bad before a dive. I looked up who the dealer was in the area. When I called, to my surprise, they had it. They... More

My husband and I have only dove with with this company for the past 3 years but recently had a very bad experience.

Thank you for your feedback. I would like to submit that our captain did give everyone on board the choice of going to a different location with less current. Per our previous conversation, if there is anything we can do for you, please let us know. More
