This was my first snorkeling experience and it was wonderful! About 1 hour from Miami, it was a nice addition to our vacation and an activity I could participate in at 5 months pregnant. Due to slow moving travel on the one lane highway on Memorial Day weekend, the departure time was pushed back 1hr so I recommend calling them... More

We had a great time snorkeling. Would definitely do it again! The crew was so cool and down to earth- made me and my family feel very comfortable. Saw lots of cool fish and sting rays and sea turtle! We had to wait a little in the beginning to get started but so worth the wait! Thanks to the whole... More

Captain Slate recently moved his operations 15 miles away to Tavernier. We went two years ago (from his old site in Key Largo) and it was great. He had been feeding sharks and baracudas and an eel there for years and years, so, the fish knew that they should be there on Friday and Sunday morinings. The fish at his... More

I hate to give the place I enjoyed so much 10 years ago a bad review, but our trip was not handled professionally. I got my certification through this company so I wanted to share the key largo experience with my husband who was new to diving. When we got on the boat I overheard our guide who's name starts...

We are always concerned when our guests do not have the experience they were hoping for. In response to this review, we do not ever let anyone on our boats who has been drinking before the trip, employees or customers. Safety is our number one concern on our boats. We have procedures and testing equipment on hand for situations such... More

My husband and I went down to the Keys to finish up our diving certification. We started in Indiana and didn't want to wait for the quarry to get warm enough. Found Captain Slates online and set everything up. Wayne was an amazing instructor. Gave us some good tips for when we go out on our own. On the 3rd... More

My family of 5 went on a snorkeling excursion with Captain Slate on Saturday, December 28th, 2013. It was a bit windy, but a staff member commented prior to our departure that the waves were only about a foot at the location that we would be snorkeling. After a very choppy 45 minute boat ride to the site, we began... More

Choose this place because of the reviews and the excellence rating, but the day played a trick on me. The Wind was way too strong and it brought the currents against me when I was snorkeling. Though regardless saw many small fishes, turtles, stingrays, and an OCTOPUS !!! amazing trip friendly crew, supplied with all the equipment necessary. Willing to... More
