Had plan a family trip weeks in advance to go out in the glass bottom boat. Called the place on 2 different times to speak with them during booking and after booking trip to see about times a few days before the trip called to see if we could move the time up that said that the 12:30pm was the...

We are very sorry you were not interested in upgrading to snorkeling with us when you came to check in for the Glass Bottom boat. Unfortunately, equipment does break every so often so the boat was unavailable when you had planned to go out. Ultimately, we try to make everyone's trip to the Keys a fun experience and we are...

My boys and I attended the August Scuba Camp. We found the instructors Kevin & Wayne to be extremely helpful, patient and professional. The crew Matt and Ashley are hardworking and friendly. Captain Slate put on an amazing underwater show for the divers with sharks and moray eels!!! They also, were able to accommodate my husband in his refresher course... More

Girls day out was a blast!!! Friendly, informative! These guys went above and beyond to make sure we got to enjoy our snorkeling trip! Did I mention attentive - it was mentioned not to swallow the water cause it will get you sick, and of course I accidentally swallowed water - got sick and the captain wet a napkin with... More

I won't go anywhere else. The people that work here love their job & show it. They take extra care of you & show you a good time on the dives.

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
