I have experienced a number of dive companies but since I discovered Bonsai I will not dive with anyone else in the Keys. The dive master will only take a limited number of people and he is very safety conscious.

Made reservations for June trip in January. Bonsai closed in February and did not call to tell me. Good thing I called to confirm. Not very professional.

My girlfriend and I have not dove in a while and the owner Peter made us feel very comfortable even with rough seas. We were the only two on the boat and felt like we had a private charter! We were the first to arrive to the Vandenburg and had a great dive! We then went to a reef for... More

My wife had my dives set up for me before I met her in Key West. She told me the research she had done and how nice Peter was to her. I was sure glad she chose Bonsai. We had finished our dive on the Vandenberg (30 minute bottom time) before any other divers had even entered the water. Seems... More

Thanskgiving dive to the Vandenburg and a reef. Overall this was an excellent dive service, with plenty of personalized attention and guidance. My partner and I are beginner divers (less than 25 dives), and Peter was extremely helpful throughout. When my mask was leaking water, he let me use one of his. When my partner got cold, he let her... More

My husband and I found this smaller dive outfit online reading reviews. i personally like the smaller shops better, its more personalized and flexible and you get more attention. This father son team was great. I will definitely use these guys again when I go back. Thank you Pete for being so professional and understanding when you had to fetch... More

Took whole family of 7,with various levels of diving skills, on dive in January. Explained to Peter that we didn't want to just be thrown in the water, but wanted more attention because 2 of our kids were brand new divers and the other 3 were a tiny bit rusty. He took the time to help us feel safe and... More

My fiance and I travelled from Canada to Key West a few days before Christmas. I had conversed with Peter a few times via email before arriving. He always was prompt and informative in his responses. When we arrived on Friday night the forecast for Saturday was not favourable. Peter was very knowledgeable and honestly suggested that we push our... More

I went on a dive with Peter of Bonsai Diving Tuesday November 13th. I had researched potential ways to dive the Vandenberg while on a Carnival cruise stop in Key West, and chose this vendor based on the number of positive reviews here on Trip Advisor. First the positives, Peter was very flexible in dealing with changes to my schedule... More

I was very disappointed with this review considering the effort made to make this a safe enjoyable dive for this couple. We run a newer 26 ft World Cat rated for 8 divers but limit it to 6. By most standards there was plenty of space. We carry a captain/instructor as crew with an additional DM on weekends. We have... More
