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.

Went out twice with Quiescence on July 4th and was very impressed. As an avid snorkeling I have been out on many boats in the keys. Some of these other companies have been very good but Quiescence is now my favorite. Between the very friendly staff and the small boat size I felt more like I was on a private... More

Perfect dive spot, professional staff, personalizes experience - no complaints. Enjoyed the small group setting and fun time. I'm not certified so I snorkeled while others went diving and was able to see beautifully - Sea Turtle, Nurse Shark, beautiful fish and coral, spiney lobster, a cannon and boat wreck. Just Wow! Everyone was so nice that it made it... More

I've been with other diving companies and I would not even consider going anywhere else, especially if you are a novice and need that extra little help. More tailored to every need. They are very accommodating.

Steve was a great captain. I went here after driving all night to get on the boat at 8AM & had a wonderful experience. The weather was pretty good with some wind and Steve knew exactly where to take us to see some awesome stuff. A small reef shark, eagle rays, the Christ statue, of course countless colorful fish &...

Team ECCO traveled with 9 students from the mountains of NC to the sea at Quiescence. What a great week! We came with our group as part of our extended summer teaching about coral reefs and used Quiescence as ocean transport and dorm. What a wonderful crew of really nice people!

Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff right from the start. This was our second trip with Quiescence in the last month (we also cancelled another trip after the guys advised that the water was fairly rough at no cost to us). We had Captain Steve for the second time who again provided us with an excellent straight forward dive plan. In... More

Kate, Captain Steve, and the entire team are great! The maximum of six divers on a boat is a welcome change to boats that are too crowded. The quality of service and personal attention on the boat was far beyond expectations. We highly recommend Quiescence!

Outstanding staff; very friendly, helpful, service oriented but not uptight. No dive master on boat so captain gave dive briefing. He described the layout, landmarks, where to look for certain creatures and current patterns. Very safety oriented yet treated you like an adult. Rinse tank at dock and two big shower stalls with doors. I'd recommend them in a heartbeat.

We have been diving with this shop for a few years and appreciate the courteous, thoughtful staff. On our first day, the seas were 3-4 according to the weather site. Kate counseled us about the chop and roll with possible surge during the dive. She made a few calls to captains already out on the reef and found out that... More
